That seems to be the case. Not just shapeshifter, all mercs get vaporized in farm zones even with good gear now. A3 mercs (such as necrolyte) are fairing a bit better than others due to high defense and still having access to high physical resist like A2 mercs thanks toCuranderaCurandera

Maybe with crazy gear, but so far, none.
I believe it was suchbalance whom loathed mercs due to being unable to balance around them, so I'm fairly certain that unless this was an unintended nerf, it might be an manufactured issue. I hope I'm wrong because I personally love having a merc around and for me personally, I find not having one (due to constant death) is actually bugging me to the point where I feel my enjoyment of the game waning... Just another reason to do 'something else' with my time than sink hours into a game where I feel several fun features have been tweaked to remove their element fun. Mercs are definitely one of them. Perhaps it's psychological, having your merc tag along with you feels like your not playing alone. I mean Jesus, when given a placebo, they have been proven to be effective up to 60% of the time in some cases, thus is the power of the mind. That little dude running next to me, feels like a part of my team. Losing him and being unable to keep him alive feels not good... It leaves an unpleasant feeling. I don't really give a fuck if he does adequate damage or not, it's nice that he can tank some of the damage. Idk, for me, I am personally missing having a constant Merc buddy, and yes, I am being sincere here. Just my 2-cents.
