    Best bow for Rogue Merc (cold)?

    What would you think are the best 2 or 3 unique bow choices for a rogue merc (cold)?

    She is currently providing negligible support for my bone necro. It's a decent combination because I blind them and she safely skewers them, but her damage is puny compared to what I do to them with bone spear/spirit. Looking to beef her up.

    My nec in hardcore is using a fire rogue merc hired in hell. She's got an upgraded goldstrike and does 236-847 damage. She used to use a kuko but the goldstrike kills faster I found.

    Just curious tho, what lvl is your merc and at what lvl did you buy her? I'm thinking of dumping her and buying either an act 5 barb merc or an act 1 fire rogue in normal and lvling up.

    These are the bows I tested on my own merc, and who did their job :)

    - WF
    - Silence Hydra bow
    - Eaglehorn
    - upped goldstrike

    Wf did the most dmg, silence was the best overall (blind really helps). Eaglehorn is really cheap, and upped goldstrike has the xxx% dmg to demon/undead which makes up for its lack of dmg.

    Just to compare, could you list how much damage for each bow when equipped? And also, can you state what type of rogue merc (fire/cold) and at which difficulty you bought her (n/nm/hell)?
