Anti-IronMaiden

Hey all, i've been thinking for awhile now, and i was wondering if there was anything that could prevent my merc from getting Iron Maiden? I tend to do baal runs with my Blizz Sorc, so i usually let my merc finish those CI's. But sometimes when i run into those knights, my merc dies instantly. Need some advice please :lipsrsealed:

Usual things as far as perhaps unequipping/downgrading merc's wep, etc. You are a sorc though so just pay attention to the particles over your merc's head when fighting oblivion knights and the second you see the evil orange stringy things, teleport away to pull your merc back, and either go to town and talk to the healer person or stay back until it wears off or try and get him cursed with something different.

This is RibGriller, and I approve of this message. Ha, I've always wanted to say something like that.

HelHel Bonehew on switch is always a good idea. Cast blizzard, tele to keep merc safe, switch and CE away.

If you're worried about OK's in the Throne Room, just teleport to Baal when your merc gets IM'ed... Baal casts Decrep and you're set... easy :grin:

... or you can just hire an Act1 Rogue :wink3:
I wonder how long those would last in Baal runs :badteeth:

A1 rogues last very very well in setups where the player character takes more abuse than the merc. They work less well when neither character is the tank. However, some folks who use RWM have reported good results mixing an Ice bow merc with an Infinity carrying lightning sorc. In ANY case they are way more viable than any A3 merc.

Good advice on the baal tele to override the IM....
