    Facet on Act 2 merc?

    Hey guys,
    I tried searching and most of the info I got was related to the Act 3 mercs... if I use a nightwing and cold facet with my Act 2 Holy Freeze merc, will this affect his damage? Does it increase the damage from the aura as well as the attack, or just one? Or neither? As I understand it, +skills (2 on NW) raise the skill level of the auras, but do the %cold damage and -%cold resist work as well? Thanks for the help.

    It will help, but for his cold damage only. It will have no effect on your own cold damage, assuming you have any on you char. :wink3:

    But personally I don't think facets will help much, as merc's aura isn't synergised.

    Yeah, not worth the facets if you ask me, you're better of letting him focus on his physical damage, HF is just for the slowing effect.

    Just to be 100% clear - they will increase the damage, IF it's the merc wearing the gear. A cold sorc wearing a facet'ed nightwing, for instance, couldn't expect a holy freeze merc's aura damage to increase.

    However, their aura levels are so low it's not really worth bothering.

    OK, thanks much. I just have an already-faceted NW laying around, and wondered if my merc would benefit from it's use. Sounds like the damage increase is negligible, and he'd be better off with a life-oriented helm. Thanks again!
