Cresent Moon and Mercs

I was wondering if you gave cresent moon to a merc would it give all enemys -35% light res for you aswell or just for him. So would it be decent for a javazons merc?

If a merc has dual Phoenix and his targets are standing in your Meteor or Firewall they'll take the -%fr damage from your Meteor everytime your merc hits them though right?

Not sure, but I don't think it works that way.

A merc is just another character in your party, if it were to work that way, you could stack -FR% across the entire 8 player party and that would be quite an enormous -%

I think the -FR% works strictly for the attacks of the person equipped with it, regardless of any other attacks happening simultaneously.

When interpolating what RTB said, probably not. If it were something like an aura, a warcry or a curse, then it would work, but I guess it works more like cold mastery from a sorc which others don't benefit from, too.

So in conclusion a javazon that has a merc with that runeword would get no damage benefit from the items lower res?
I dont expect that any other party members would i was just wondering about the specific player with the merc equiped.
Because you could then put it into 2 phaseblades and put it on a act5 hireling to give a -70% light res to all your enemys

Yes...it will only work for the damage the merc gives. Act 5 hirelings can't dualwield...
