definitly hone sundan imo
for sockets you can go amn if he needs life leech, and shaels if that helps him reach a next breakpoint, or whatever you can put in there that he's lacking

Hone Sundan = bosses go down in 30 seconds. That 45% CB really helps.

I dunno merc breakpoints, but sticking a coupla Amns or Shaels in it will give your merc a great benefit.

A Eth Upped Hone Sundan is just sick, Add IAS, Damage, and leach or Poison for slow and your set.
One of the few Uniques that can drop eth and have a repair mod it is used by spear barbs as well.

There really isn't any logical argument in favor of the Bloodthief. It really pales in comparison to the Hone Sundan.

Put 2 shaels in the Hone to hit the merc breakpoint. An amn rune in the 3rd socket is pretty standard to finish it up.

Agree with dunner.

Although I did get quite a way with a Meat Scraper (don't laugh, I didn't have a Reapers.) :tongue:
