    Act 4 Mercs ?

    Here's an interesting one :

    If Act 4 had mercs available to be hired, what character would type would they be ? Some form of angel ? what skills would they use ? Would they have some sort of aura like Act 2 mercs?

    ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    The ghosts of the Warriors, Rogues, and Sorcerors who died heroically in Diablo. They would use a magic-based variant of the skills they had originally, plus a few bonuses, and better-than-usual resists, but would be low on life.

    I think some kind of Imp would be cool. Using an elemental melee attack of some kind. Perhaps they would have some form of "Attract" aura, like the necro curse, it would have a decent % chance to draw the attackers to them. the 3 options could be fire, lightning and poison .... no cold (we're in hell after all;) )

    All the act4 mercs would be basketball players from the mavericks.

    Or they would be revived attorneys chasing monsters with legal documents.

    Wirt's ghost as Merc. He could talk the monsters to death. Or beat them over the head with his own leg. Or he can use his leg to summon the Cows.

    There's no question. the act 4 merc would be Al Gore. His main weapon would be a thesaurus. His main attack would be speeches, which would bore monsters so bad they would go insane and kill themselves in various humourous ways.

    If you give him +3 skills, he will put monsters in his "lock box".

    Hmm
    Aragorn:

    Kill in the Face mercs: sound good overall

    There is no spoon:Keanu Reeves clones that always have the same dumb expression on their face. When they level up they say "I know kung foo". But they don't actually fight, they just argue with themselves about whether this is real-life or a video game.

    The Stealth Merc: I like this one, he is invisible and doesnt attack(as this would give away his position) The only problem is that he forgets to turn on the invisiblility 92% of the time

    Oh
    The Wirts ghost merc: Would drive monsters to kill themselves when they try get get enough gold to buy a sweet armour and can't because its too much for them to carry, kik.

    This just reminds me of how blizzard sucked at life too much to actually finish act 4 when they made the game. Only three quests?!?! No merc?!?

    I hate diablo 2.

    If there were mercs to hire in Act 4 I'd like to see one of the three main sorc variants: a fire sorc merc, a cold sorc merc and a lightning sorc merc. They would have the most powerful ability of the sorc type they are so that a fire sorc merc will have fireball / meteor, a cold sorc FO / Blizzard and a lightning sorc TS / CL. At higher levels they should be able to tele around and/or gain additional skills like enchant, one of the frozen armors and static.

    And being sorcs they should be able to use Occy and the option to use a shield.

    I would choose the cold sorc merc and make her use: Death's Fathom, Nightwing's Veil, Ormus with Blizzard and Lidless Wall. That would be kickass.
