Real People as Henchmen

Ok so henchmen are so cool. I don't use crowns but some of friends do and they are awesome. I think that in addition to the computer henchmen we could have real people as hencmen like a job. Here is how it would work: You go to a place where you could sign up for the job. There is a preset price of gold depending on what level you are at. Like current henchmen you can only summon during battle. The sommoner can look at your level, stats, and price. If he picks you the game will automatically port you into battle. At the end of the battle the henchman goes to wherever he was before and the money is transfered over. Once it is over the game will ask the sommoner if he or she would like to request for the same henchmen and if the henchman agrees then he or she will automatically port to the same person the next time they are in battle and the gold and stuff will be transfered again.

Also: The henchmen can not flee during battle even if he or she dies. If the sommoner wants to fire the henchmen they can do so however they still get paid. The henchmen recieves gold, items, and expierance as normal. Certain parts of the game ,maybe, you can not use these types of henchmen. Maybe there can be an option for the henchman to name his own price so that he is more likely to get sommoned and the sommoner can choose from these people also.
New idea!: people can pay with crowns but since crowns cost real money it just transfers the crowns into gold

I see pros and cons to this a few pros are it may provide a new and exciting experience for the high level players who have already beat Malistare like myself and need something to do. Some cons could be people would ONLY pick the high level henchmen if they can't afford it they just won't pick a henchmen at all so the lower ranked players(Like my Balance wizard level 11) won't get picked if they sign up for the job because they want to oh say need to fight that same boss with help. :-)

You do have a point. However i think that low level people will still get picked. The first reason is if you want to save as much money as possible you would hire a lowest level as possible. You also need to remember that low level people who are hiring don't get as much gold to pay with so they might just pay for low level. Anyway thanks for reading and posting!

Maybe a queue like the PvP you could wait in till called?
I would still think the player needing help would spend crowns, but I would give the 'Player Henchman' tickets like the PvP to redeem for equipment once he had enough.
How many tickets? I would have a rating scale: worked hard (5) to sat idle (0), and multiple it by 10% level. So a levle 50 could earn 0-25 tickets, with a good level 50 item costing 2000 tickets or so....

I'm confused. Isn't there something like this at the crown shop except I'm pretty sure the people aren't real.

Thats the point it's a new idea. They're already is henchmen that you can hire but my idea describes REAL people hiring Real other people to help.

Yah I kind of thought about a queue. This is how it would work. It would be like P VS. P except it doesn't ask you if your ready or not because the people who need help can not wait. i get your other idea but the people who are hiring might not judge fairly and they might not even cair lol.

I'd just feel like helping so I'd do it for 1 gold.
