Good/best easily avialable merc weapons? EDIT: This was meant for early game - ideas to get untwinked/new players to NM Meph so they can get some gear. Rules: 1. Uniques must be fairly easily available from Normal Meph. 2. Upgrading to Exceptional is allowed. 3. Socketing allowed but not encouraged. 4. Runes from up to Nightmare Countess (reasonable number of runs) allowed. My suggestions (act2 mercs): "Strength" in Pike. Upped Razortine, Bloodthief or Battlebranch. Gambled rare Pike with some dmg and life leech. "Insight" for people with mana problems.
