Maybe if you have something that can trigger lifetap curse, and combine it with extreme damage reduce :fish:Bert said:True, but even the best gear will not stop your mercenary from dying in the Chaos Sanctuary.
its lvl 93 my merc (like my hammerdin)cotton said:Your gear looks ok, the problem may be elsewhere. What level is your merc, and what level are the monsters you are fighting? Even the best equipped merc at lvl 24 is going to die alot in hell. He needs to be around monsters of his own level to increase his chance to hit, and hitting leeches, which will help him survive. Also, if he is too low a level, his life won't be high enough to absorb many hits from tough monsters.
Hammerdins are strong enough to get a little ahead of themselves on the levling curve. I suggest checking the "Level up" guide in the strategy compendium and taking your merc back to the appropriate level until he grows up.
How are his resists? Merc's are pretty sensitive to elemental damage without good resists. I usually use a Tal's Horadric Crest for my mercs. It has resists, LL, +life.LegolaSBR said:i got a Hammerdin and a hire of act 2 - Hell - Defensiv, that cool...
but its keep dyeing too fast...
Crown of thieves
how was the best gear for it (insight needed) to its stop dyeing fast?

Which area in the game is he getting killed, to what kind of monsters?
With a level 93 merc he shouldn't really need to. Mine is 93 and wearing Ral'ed Andy's and Stone he has 70%+ resists. Equipment wise, the way to go could be an upgraded guardian angel for the extra 10% on top of the base 75. And if you can acquire a CTA the BO will help out a lot.LorveN said:That is: He needs lightning resists...
Try socket the helm with an Ort rune, that gives him an additional 30% light resist, which means he at least will have 75
OT but just wondering, what did you make the stone in? Thats quite a low defense for an eth stone.creatine_rage_2002 said:I would trade out the Insight and replace it with an Obedience (it has +20 res...mine does anyway).
I have a HF Merc for my Hammerdin too...
Crown of Thieves (12% LL)
Eth Stone (2.5k def)
Eth Obedience Great Poleaxe
Sometimes ill switch out the Obedience for an Eth Reapers Toll if im Boss Hunting (HF+Decrep)
