Notes[edit]

  • The level of the summons will be the same as the summoner's actual level (it will not be increased by Journey to the North or Sunspear Battle Call).
  • His weapon is considered to be a sword.
  • Though he appears human, Disease does not spread between him and the rest of the (human) party members.
  • When the person he is following stops moving, he may stop at the same location, appearing to be "inside" the person.
  • Merchants can cross the Desolation without using a Junundu.
  • This summon dies with a Shield of Deflection animation if it lasts its full duration.

Trivia[edit]

  • Initially upon release of the Mercantile Summoning Stone (and unlike other allies from summoning stones), the merchant could wander very far from its summoner when not in combat. This behaviour has led to a Portal jump method, using Recall on the summoned ally and waiting until it goes far enough beyond a portal to cancel the enchantment.
