    Any use for Act 1/3 merc?

    I'm so used to using Act 2 mercs. I occasioanly use act 5 mercs. But I've never used 1/3 since I don't know how or when to use them. What characters/builds usually need them? And whats the best strategy to use them with? I'll read up on the merc thread, but I want some more opinions.

    The rogue with Shael Windforce and upped twitchthroe is kind of powerful.

    Give an act 3 merc culwens point, quehegans or ormus robes, lidless eye and an fcr helm, and he is not so useless

    I have some merc - character guides in my merc guide found in my signature.


    single element mercs are good with the following :

    Vengence Paladin ( as they reduce some immune monsters ) so cold works well with vengence.

    If u can afford the runewords then they can become more useful. (as you can get certain auras which you would noramlly just get from your act2 merc )

    Generally the cold mercs are prefered as they do decent damage, and have the ability to freeze targets so offer a bit of crowd control.
