    What's the best merc weapon for a runeword? Also, what's the best unique merc weapon?

    Depends on the char.
    For elemental people, Infinity is usually second to none.
    For other casters, Insight is awesome.
    Obedience is also awesome for a very cheap price.

    As A.E said, it totally depends on the character. For runewords, A.E. is dead on. I also like Doom in certain cases. Pride is another popular option for Bowazons and a few other builds. All of these weapons assume the use of an Act 2 merc, but a Faith Act 1 is an excellent option for a Bowazon wielding something other than a Faith bow.

    A few good options for Uniques would be:

    Eth Reaper's Toll: Solid damage, but CtC decrepify can really help melee characters deal with PIs (including the merc)
    Eth Tomb Reaver (2 or 3 sockets ideally): powerful and flexible, but potentially very expensive. A 3os eth Tomb Reaver is godly for a Fury Druid, so I wouldn't waste it on a merc
    Upped Eth Hone Sundan: Big CB and 3 sockets allow for a variety of options
    Eth Arioc's Needle: ITD, 50% DS, very fast, and up to +4 skills will all help make the merc a hardy meat shield

    pride is not only used for bowzons but zealers.

    there are a number of base weapons i would consider to putting rw's into.
    getting these maybe a bit harder as some will have more sockets when using the larz quest to put sockets into.

    eth ca (5os max)
    eth thresher / giant thresher (5/6 max soc)
    eth gpa (6os max)
    eth cv (4os max)
