    Yes, it works, like the bonus on tals orb, its the same principle.

    Not sure about the pole. I suppose that as long as you dont plan to hit with the pole (being a sorc), the lower req one would suffice. Even a normal one.

    If you plan to hit with it... well then dunno...

    Why wouldnt you make in a one handed sword? There's no reason to give up the resists, blocking, and possibly skill a shield gives you to get the -resists from CM. A phase blade would be a good choice for a sword, if youre going for max block. and later on, it's pretty much the ultimate weapon for a tesladin so you can get even more use out of it.

    Then you won't benefit from the -35%...
    Only your merc does.
    Don't remeber which one is the best for your merc though, something quick i would say.

    If you plan doing a lot of diablo runs, maybe building a hammerdin, or a fishy will make it easier.

    With a hammer, get a tele ammy, tele from river wp to chaos sanct, and run to the seal bosses. Or if you want to clear it for being a lvl 85 area, just tele to entrance.

    With a fishy its the same principle, just you will need to gather your army before. On the other hand, I think fishy can handle the area better with more mf.

    I went with a 1.07 eth thresher, and it works very well. I'll see if I can dig up a screenie.

    Clicky

    Have fun!

    Using the runes for crescent moon for a Sorc's merc seems like a waste... after all, as a sorc, you already have static field.

    MF equipment:
    Skullders (ptopaz) - or wealth runeword - or tal's armor
    Shako (ptopaz)
    Chance guards gloves
    Goldwrap belt (uped if possible)
    War travelers boots
    Nagelrings
    Gheeds unique grand charm
    Small charms of good luck

    Switch:
    Gull dager or Blade of ali baba + Rhyme runeword shield

    All I can think right now.
    For diablo runs, a fishymancer is hard to beat
    Hopes this helps. Good luck young padwan

    May the Force be with you!

    A sorc has static field already, and unless hte merc has uber amounts of lightning on him, the -enemy res wont affect him. Really its better for melee'ers in a sword than a merc, although a non sorc will enjoy the static field.

    Regular bosses can drop all the items there, but all 3 superuniques and Diablo himself can't drop from TC87, which is a bad thing.
    Runs for unique/sets are better to do at P1, because regular bosses have far higher chance to drop unique than regular monsters and they have no no-drop chance (uneffected by Player settings). However if you want also runes, charms, gems then run at the highest player settings you can afford with your killing speed. But also in this case Player 8 may not be the most effective.
    Mang song's lesson? Do you have one? It's a cool staff.

    Fishymancer is a skelemancer, the guide author is Nightfish, hence the name.
    5 minutes for a baal is very quick if its P8. Do you avoid all monsters on the way and only kill the minions/baal, or do you kill all things in between you and baal?
