Re: Best merc for a 1 pt smiter, zeal/fanant pally?
My zealer has an act one cold merc with
Harmony Great Bow
Treachery Dusk Shroud (the same one I use for prebuff)
With this setup, she has max res and 11 frame attacks IIRC. Her damage is small compared to my ~40k per second main attack, but it is comparable to my switch damage - gimmershred, tiamat. All told, she probably (I haven't crunched all the numbers) does 2k per second (mostly elemental). She kills hell packs by herself and really speeds things up when I come up against OKs and PIs.
