    Advice for 5 Socket Mancatcher

    I've been holding onto this item for a few weeks now hoping i'd find enough runes to do something but i don't think it's going to happen. I wanted to make a weapon for my Merc for Hell running and right now he's using some lousy weapon. I don't have any decent Jewels so i was thinking of 5 same or a combination of pgems. What recommendations would you throw out? I have about 90 pgems on my assorted mules and no one seems to want any. I've tried rerolling a few with some Grand charms but no luck getting anything decent. I want to free up the 8 slots this Mancatcher is tying up :)

    Thanks for the tips.

    Beside the honor runeword ya can't do much with that mancatcher.

    Personnaly I would have sold it to charsi (since it don't seems to be etheral), if you just can't find better for your merc, you could still equip it as it is now for your merc.

    If you plan to stick gems in it, skulls are usefull for the leech on a merc.

    erm, i would say obedience, but im not 100% sure that it matches the weapon, but the rw is certainly good for price

    No, Obedience is polearm only, mancatcher is of spear class. I would just charsi it if I were you. Or you can make a CtA in it:wink3:

    I have plenty of money... i have 90 pgems... what about 5 perfect emeralds and running around poisoning everything in sight? :)

    Actually i do like the idea of the Skulls... some leeching might be useful. This Merc hits like a girl

    That's not going to be as awesome as you think. Whenever the merc attacks, the poison duration will get just reset, but the actual damage doesnt stack up.

    Plain mancatchers aren't worth holding on to. Now, if it were a 15/3 ethereal, I might say Call to Arms. You could take it off of the mercenary to cast the party cries, return it to him and keep playing.
