This may seem like a dumb question, but I have seen in Act III objects that my (AI) mercinary will attack called Hell Bringer. I assume they summon some sort of enemy or enemies [by its title], but I have been practically touching one before and nothing spawned near me.

What is their purpose and why does my friend want to attack them?

They normally spawn Tormented Stingers, which can be seen in this Youtube video. It is possible that they had already spawned and you never noticed. I am not sure if the Hell Bringer can spawn multiple times given a cooldown. I always kill them before they have a chance. Clearly your follower has the same idea.

Ah in the midst of battle, I must not have noticed. Thank you! – Zero Stack May 26 '12 at 20:46
