    Act 1 Hammerdin Merc

    Hey all, I have recently grown tired of my Act 2 merc getting slaughtered by Iron Maiden in Chaos runs so I have switched to an Act 1 Cold Arrow. She currently uses:

    Armor: 3100 Def Eth Great Hauberk Fort
    Helm: 8/8/20 Eth Vamp Gaze
    Weapon: 14 ED Ice Ward Bow

    I find that her resists are a little low but I have a 65 Kira's on a mule. What is the optimum gear for an Act 1 Merc? Is there any way that I can improve her?

    Thanks.

    Edit: Also, what difficulty should I hire merc for best stats/res?

    Lower difficulty = better stats. The level in which the merc was hired doesn't matter, only his/her current level and difficulty in which it was hired.

    Thanks Timmy! I'll consider that but won't be able to do anything about it since ladder resets in three minutes. :(
