    Always that way. Build up a good act 2 might merc and give him a high damage weapon. You static her, he finishes her off - it's much faster than you'd think.

    I suppose a hell merc would work, it just wouldn't be as fast as a might merc. Be sure to set him up with a good damaging weapon and you can probably do fine.

    mine is a pure fire sorc and even though she can get to the countess relatively fast, she cant hit her cos of her dual immunity. thank god for Chalan ( my hell act2 Def merc :lol: )

    as said before..static her, let ur merc poke jab her to death. VERY fast. :thumbsup:

    For solo play in hell mode your sorc would be lost without a merc. I guess it was already quite a pain to kill the cold-immune, fast-running rogues in the field of stones without a merc, right ? That was just the beginning. Try to kill hell Duriel with a sorc, for example...

    Get a nightmare act 2 merc (I favor the defensive one with holy freeze) and level him up by doing nightmare baalruns. Give him a Crown of Thieves, a big defense armor with some nice mods (I normally use Gris armor) and a big damage weapon (for leveling mercs, I use an ethereal Pierre Tombale Couant, for example), so he can kill stuff alone (which will give him much more xp). Do nightmare Baal minion runs (skip Baal !) until he is L75 (and you as well). Get a Reaper's Toll in the meantime (costs 15+20 pgems) which will be the weapon he uses in hell.

    Use a hammerdin or physical damage character against the countess. They take her out very easily.

    I like the Act 2 hell defiance merc. U can cheaply gear him w/ stealskull/crown of thieves, duriels, and bonehew. He'll have no problem wiping up the Countess
