    Arioc or Bonehew for my Merc?

    I have a skellimancer MFing necro. My merc is a might merc lvl 89. Right now he is wearing Blacke Hades with 3 Perf Tops and Tal's Mask. I have Arioc's Needle (+3) and a Bonehew. Which one should he use? If I go with the Hew I need to increase his Strength, probably by socketed the mask with an ammy or a jewel. Then I would put to Amns into the hew. Or I could stick with the Needle and put an Amn in there and possibly put one into the helm too. Let me know what you guys think is best.

    Thanks,


    T

    this actually depends on the number of players in the game when you are mfing. if yu solo mf, the skeletons actually do significant damage, so a more powerful might aura is better (ariocs). if you like doing runs in games with more people, the skeletons only serve as tanks for your merc (he is your best damage source), so have him wear the biggest damage weapon (bonehew). and about bonehew socketing: since your merc doesnt need more ll because of tals, socket the hew with hel/shael.

    my merc does more dmg with arioc than bone..

    remeber kids that that might aura benefits your merc too... :clap:

    choose one whitch deals more dmg, so simple.

    and don't socet amn anywhere if you don't have to.. my merc has 8 ll and he is doing GREAT

    bane, arioc and ethereal andriel's face = fast and nice dmg

    I think he does need more LL. He doesn't die much, but he does die more than he used to. He used to use a Reaper's Toll with 15LL for a total of 25LL. But I moved that over to another merc.

    what crappy suggestions there at the end. If you 'hel' shael your boner, smack yourself afterwards.

    why hel it, when you can fal your helm/armor? use that, then take out the fal's when necessary.

    while arioc's is nice, it doesn't have some of the nicer mods that a strong boner comes with. pmh is too sexy. end of story.

    8LL great? Run a boss and see how 'great' that is. amn/shael amn/shael amn/shael.

    YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH LIFE LEECH.

    i did not say that 8ll is great.. i sed my merc does great.

    i only run meph or andy from the act bosses and my does just fine.. other times i have barb with me.

    and any of you necros out there heard of revives or skellies? they are so good for tanking..

    but everyone goes for their own way.. this is my path and i just shared it, sorry :scratch:

    Well thanks for the help guys.... Didn't want to make you all fight. So Gvandale... why Shael/Amn and not Amn/Amn?

    don't pay attention to g, he's just not feeling very fluffy today :D


    amn/shael hits next attack speed bp. which means he'll probably actually leech back more life/sec with amn/shael than amn/amn.
