best merc for a barb
What type of merc should I use with my barb??
depends on your build, but most barbs make the best use of your act2 nightmare offensive merc.
Other good candidates are Nm act 2 defensive and norm//hell act 2 defensive
just a minor question: from sasja's Meteorb guide, it is said that a holy-freeze defensive merc can be hired. anyone knows the exact name of that merc? it would be useful to fight together with my barb.
now my barb is using a barb merc hired in nm act5, but he died too easily.
Holy Freeze is a Nightmare Act 2 Defensive merc. They're pretty nice, but Nightmare Act 2 offensive mercs (might) are usually more useful, and you can always give them a Doom poleaxe so they'll have the Holy Freeze aura to boot.
Some of us (not including me) can always get a Doom polearm...:lol:
yes, that's another great choice. but a 5-socketed axe/polearm is quite difficult for me to find. Not to mention the runes to combine into the runeword.
i prefery might mercs because they leech better. even though HF merc slows, it still seems to me that the increased leech is better.
