    Act2 merc dying easily

    My prayer merc is dying so easily in hell. What equipment should I make it wear for it to live longer?

    a cheap and effective setup is:
    Obedience in eth exceptional/elite polearm
    Tal Mask or high LL Crown of Thieves (both worth pgems/free)
    Shaftstop (pgems)

    personally I find defiance merc survives much better

    Decent Cheap Merc Gear by MageChick. A fantastic guide covering a lot of set ups and budget ranges.

    Bear in mind if you are fighting monsters way above your level, your merc is going to go down. On Memph runs, I'd often tank Memph myself so the merc lived longer. :D Even now, my level 97 sorceress will lose the merc to a nasty modded Lister (rarely, but it does happen).

    I use Reapers, Treachery armour and Andys (with fire resist jewel) for Baaling and while they may be too expensive for you, I DO recommend Treachery. It's cheap and has a lot of nice mods; IAS means quicker leech, and when Fade triggers as well as the resistances there is a hefty Damage Reduction element (10% IIRC). Tals Mask is my helm of choice for leech and resistances. Weapon; I was never a fan of Insight Mercs but I know others are.
