I've read the sticky and I've read about them at other sites, but i didn't find an answer to this question. So please don't respond with "use search" or "do research", because i have, even if it was only around 10 minutes. If that's being lazy, so be it. I just haven't followed this game for months or years like some of you have. And if anyone does find some answers, please link me to some sources. Your searching skills might be more superior than mine. (it's a little sad that i have to post this foreword so i don't get attacked by, rabid, forum fanboys. lol.)
I know we don't have to use them, but will we be at a disadvantage if we never use them? This is seriously the only thing bothering me about this game. I thought it wouldn't bother me in Dragon Age, but they did, and it's the reason i never finished the game. I didn't like henchmen/heroes in GW1 either. I just dislike having to micro-manage "pets".
Thanks in advance to those who answer.
