Hey, I've been wondering about the merc thing myself. I think that, giving the act2 merc an obedience wep, (likewise giving you another concentration aura) would be the best. It woud probably more than double your dmg. Other than that, I don't have much. I'm working on my first hammer paly.

Those auras will NOT stack doubling ur damage. The higher lvl concentration willl completely negate the other. So only 1 is active and giving u a damage boost.
That's correct that they don't stack but the one active isn't necessarily the highest level aura. Whichever aura flashes last will be in effect so it's possible that your merc's aura would cancel out your higher conc. aura. Same deal if you're partied with someone with the same aura active - the last to flash is in effect - not the highest.

'Cancelling' auras occurs when a baddie like Uber Meph has an aura. If his is higher than yours then yours has no effect. That's why if you're gonna run ubers you can't count on a merc with an infinity pole alone to supply the conviction aura.

Insight with HF is a nice choice. An act1 merc with Faith is pretty effective too since you can save any points in Fanat. Depending on your build using an insight HF until you get to hell is a nice option and then switching to a act1 merc when your mana is high enough to support you w/o insight is nice. Running around with concentration and fanaticism at the same time speeds up your killing power almost enough that you don't miss the mana - at least until you find enough cash for a nigma and need the mana for porting.

About the fcr, 125 is the next and final bp.

Best merc is an Act2 Defensive Merc who is equipped with an Insight Runeword. Gives you holy freeze to slow down enemies for you to hammer and gives you a meditation aura so you'll never run out of mana.

Thx for all the posts guys :cool:
So an NM def merc it is, for the HF and the Insight.
What about armor and helmet?
What's more useful, a CoH or a Forti?
And what do you think about a Gaze as a helm?
