    Best way to powerlvl new merce?

    I have a blizz sorce and waited till hell to get a merce. It was defiance and it sucked mofo ****. I decided I would get a nm act 2 defencive holy freeze merce seeing that holy freeze adds dmg to the merces attack much like a might merce. my merce came at lvl 47 and I managed to get it to 49 through letting it kill on its own in nm canyon of magi. However this is too slow! I know you will tell me this is the only way but ISNT there any way to powerlvl a merce?

    For example, can YOU do baal runs and have your merce lvl?

    Does your merce have the exp penalty if u kill a high lvl monster?

    thx!

    Any tips are appreciated.

    when your merc is lvl 48/49 i think that the best place to lvl is act 5 nightmare, andu can exp till lvl 60/65 or 70. if u have good ekip to him u can go , after lvl 65/70 to hell act 1 (bosses for example give good exp) or act 2.

    i did that and in a couple of hours my merc exp from 48 to 74.

    u can make baal run too , in nightmare,but remenber he only exp what u kill, he dont exp with other players kills

    is easyer with a sorc :), with my barb ( he only kill 1 monstar at a time) its more difficult

    good luck

    powerleveling merc

    The best i found for mercs is to just power level myself until im high level then i get the merc i want from hell and level it after that.

    They can get experience from any part of the game but if they die fast because they rush in for the fight...they will get killed and then you have to pay to have them reserected. its easier to buy one at a higher level and worry about leveling yourself first.

    :idea:

    Just load up on a belt of Super Healing to keep the merc alive, give him Uber-Life Leech and do some NM runs on Andy, Meph and Baal.


    As a sorc you're making plenty kills, from which the merc also benefits.

    Eldritch and Shenk are good customers too.


    But I would recommend against using an Act 2 merc with sorcs, Act 5 mercs are a lot better at tanking and the sorcs doesn't benefit enough from the Aura's.
