    Most people would use an Act 2 Combat (Prayer) Merc.

    Act 2 Offense Mercs increase attack rating . . . and you're not a melee character. Act 2 Defense Mercs increase defense . . . nice, but, at lvl 19 you probably don't have enough defense to matter anyways.

    If I was you I'd get and use the Act 2 Combat Merc through the rest of the game. Also I'd try to get/create and 'Insight' Polearm for the Merc as soon as possible (clvl 27) . . . then you'll be getting your Health and Mana replenished by the Merc! Doesn't get much better than that . . .

    For future reference, the Arreat Summit is a good resource for anything D2, including info on Mercs. :thumbup:

    It's best that you hire a Act 2 merc but as you go to Kurast get an Iron Wolf.He is the best of the best.I recomend you a ice merc beacouse it would go very good with your ice sorc.You can freeze everything out there.

    I'd recommend switching to HolyFreeze or Might merc in NM - well-geared their survivability will surpass the prayer merc, by reducing damage taken at any given moment or by leeching more life though additional damage. Might is especially helpful when you need to rely on your merc to kill immunes.
