    Best Merc?

    I've pretty much completed my perfect fury druid (not yet).

    I was wondering what would the best Merc build be, by merc build i mean the gear and type of merc.

    define "best". now define "opinion".

    personally, I haven't tried this yet, but If you are a fury/rabies maybe get an act 3 merc with like TONS of poison facet gear (6 facet sword, 3 facet helm, 4 facet shield). rabies would be insanely overpowered.

    or how about the good old harmony act 1 merc since you have to run everywhere you go.

    I did a bow merc from act 1 with coh, vamp, and harmony. Its really nice to run around all most as fast and some one can tele. They die off really quickly. But for pvm they hold theyre own.

    Damage wise, the best merc is a Might merc from Act 2 Nightmare, equipped with a level 20 concentration pride weapon (and eth andy's visage for +2 skills, ral'd to make up for the loss of fire resists)


    For armor, add in a perfect lpl and resists eth fort

    How would this affect rabies? You're the one using rabies, not the merc. You'd have to be wearing the afforementioned gear to benefit from the +poison dmg and -poison res.



    Unless there's something about Act 3 mercs that I don't know about yet... (e.g. they can do poison damage?)

    I bet there are many things you and I don't know about act3 mercs, but I do know they don't deal poison damage.
    -> Facets on a merc won't help you at all.

    Act2 might merc ftw!

    one thing you can do is go with an act 3 light merc

    slap a perf faceted griffons on it, a perf upped 5/5 faceted vipermagi, a 20/20 jmod, and a spirit sword cured problems with immune to physicals pretty much instantly
