gearing up a rogue My bear druid is running with a cold-archer at the moment (they're both lev52 or so) and i really enjoy it as a backup, even knowing that a might merc would be probably somewhat more help. I never really had a rogue merc before though, so i have a hard time figuring the right gear. For nightmare it doesn't matter anyhow, so i just put a Witchwild, a Rattlecage and some life leech helmet on her in a hurry. The best suggestion i read is giving her a Delirium helmet, which would indeed be a great help but than it is way out of range for me (i have exactly zero Ist runes). I do like the idea of her having % to cast nasty spell items, but runewords mostly i can't afford. Witchwild casts AD which is awesomeness for a melee char, but on the other hand it happens once in a blue moon (2%). Still a nice bow, but not sure what to socket into it if i chose it as her final weapon (shael or ED is the question) I have Koku as well, which is nice against PIs that my char cant really hurt (well, he can with the IK maul actually just not too well), and I have M'avina's , but rogues can't use that iirc. For the armor part i am even more clueless. I guess damage reduction is not such a great help for her, so i should be looking for crushing blow and leech. Anyways, I appreciate "elite" suggestions (for the distant future), but also would like to hear some more affordable ones.
