    FRW on Mercs.

    Yesterday, I got a perfect Bonehew and I wanted to use it with my merc, but he was 2 str short. So I decided to change his gear and I put on him Sazabi's armor and helm to meet str req for Bonehew. Partial set bonus for using 2 items is 40% FRW. And what happened?. My merc moves like hell. I didn't knew that, but its amazing. Now he's a real beast.
    I supose some of you knew that, but if you didn't, now you know it :D

    I only wanted to share my experience :)

    how's he surviving? i used to use the trang's armor (40% frw) so i knew about it, but he didn't survive as well as when i used shaftstop.

    Well, I socketed Bonehew with 2 Amn's. He is a Might Merc and my char is a Zealot. He does 5k max damage and hits like crazy. Rarely his life goes below half. However I played only a few minutes with him in River of Flame but he did it very well.

    I've had similar luck with such equipment. It's funny when you merc mows through monsters faster than some of the players in the game :p

    Same here, I almost have a heart attack just thinking about those ressurection prices. I am one poor sap, and when my merc dies, he stays that way good and long...

    thx for accidently figuring that out,that is awosme for the melee merc, im makin a barb one for my barb (2 barbs=fun) and with an extra enigma, if i get one we'll be un-human (same as godly, godly gets old) hence hell stun a percentage of enemies and ill jsut hack away

    It makes sense, arguably even obvious, but it never occurred to me after playing all these years. I am always waiting for my merc, thanks for posting this tidbit :)

    yeah I found out that FRW effects mercs from playing on open... heh

    Will a merc with enigma tele? or just get the mods that would be pretty cool if a merc that got a + to a skill could use that skill but I don't think it does

    No, but when you use teleport, your merc and minions teleport to your position.

    Mercs and minons always follow u when u tele around. Mercs don't need enigma to do that.

    just to point out, that merc ressurection prices can't go above 50,000 gold. I also think the ressurection price is largely level dependant(if not all level dependant) and less on the equipment the merc is wearing..

    I used both Sazabi's and Trangs but he wasn't doing well and I switched to Shaft.I never tried Trangs+Gaze,though.Might work.
