if i should vote between them i would pick a good ED bonehew... i cant stand that stupid decrep thingy on the reapers when u need another spell and need to recast that every 3 seconds because right at that moment the reaper decide that every strike is a good one to spam a decrep... :rant:

For everything that is *not* a necromancer I'd go with the Reaper's Toll any day of the week. Decrep is an awesome curse. Decreases the damage you take, increases the damage you do, slows monsters... :) Also it has nice leech. Go go Reaper!

For necromancers, the reaper's toll is the very last weapon I'd slap on my merc.

Yup, I'd go with Bonehew, especially if you happen to have an ethereal one. As for the runes... Most likely You'll need a -req jewel or hel so that the merc can use the item. I'd fill the other slot with an Amn. (If you don't need the -reqs I'd go with 2 Amns)

If you are going to use Bonehew, put 2x Amn to it

edit:

@ Nightfish

Yes, that is true. I often use Griswold's Heart (RalOrtThul) on my mercs, and it gives +20 to strength, and so they can use Bonehew without Hel

Or if you're lucky, try a DOOM polearm, like a cryptic axe. Oodles of fun. I'll post stats later this week if I remember.

I have always used 3x Amn'd Hone Sundan for my merc weapon until Reaper's Toll. Bonehew tends to have too high of a str req for my mercs before I beat Baal.

I'm with NF though. Anything NOT a necro, use RT. For nec's, Hone Sundan is gosu cuz of its 45% CB. Great for baal runners.

Does anyone use Tomb Reaver?
Whirly Barbs use a Tomb Reaver sometimes. You use the best weapon you can with a Merc, and if that is the best then use it. But as everyone has said Reaper's Toll is the top tier A2 Merc weapon for anyone other than a Necro. You can also upgrade a Hone Sundan. Ethereal weapons have lower reqs, no? You can also use Um runes for Open Wounds, ED jewels, ED/IAS jewels, etc. If your merc is hurting for leech just toss a Life Tap in for a second or two with a Necro.

Ethereal Bonehews are nice weapons.

With a +13 STR helm and +10 from armor, my Merc was able to pick it up as soon as I found it when he was in his 70s.
