Act 3 Merc Questions Ok, I'm using an Act 3 Cold Merc with my HC trapper. Because he fires from afar I know leaching life is out of the question. I have a few questions. 1. Does the damage of the weapon (sword) actually affect the amount of cold damage he does? 2. Will +skill equipment affect him in any way? 3. If the answer to Q#2 is yes, then can anyone make suggestions to what equipment i might be looking to outfit him with. 4. I normaly use either act 2 or act 5 mercs so any help you can provide would be great.
