    Defiance Merc vs Holy Shield for Avenger?

    I just finish reading Cyrus' avenger guide and the only real dilemma i have is whether to get a defiance merc and attempt to lvl him up or pump holy shield. The downside with the merc is that its pretty hard to keep a defiance merc alive in the early going let alone lvl him up. But i would save 19 points (i still plan to put 1 point to HS and let +skills boost) which i could spend towards maxin the synergies. If i do go with the merc what would be the best way to lvl him up in the early going?

    I would personally boost Holy Shield anyway. Without its healthy DR boost a Defiance merc wouldn't be that effective.

    For an Avenger (in SC), I like the Might merc for the physical damage boost to enhance both your life and mana leech.

    I am a HS fan, but you could just lvl your paladin without the merc until lvl 70ish 75 then when you get your merc you will be able to buy him in hell and his lvl will not be that much below yours. Then from there it will be much easier for you to lvl him. But if in fact you do get him at a lower lvl then Maggot, or areas high in bosses is always good. Hope it helps..
