Holy Freeze Merc Equipment Question

Hey, I just made a throwbarb and was wondering wat the mid-level and optimal gear for a HF merc is .. I was thinking:
Helm: Mid: Tal's Mask; Optimal: Delirium
Weapon: Reaper's Toll
Armor: Mid: Duriel's Shell; Optimal: Chains of Honor
Is this about right, or do you guys recommend another equipment setup?
 
Looks good, act 2 mercs are pretty open for gear usually, many different things they can wear. For mid lvling use a hone sundan or spire of honor, and try using gaze instead of tals (lvl 41 req, not 66) Rest looks good.

Cool, thanks. Are there any other optimal armors for this kind of merc? I doubt I'll ever get be able to get a CoH :-/
 
Shaft with an umrune or whatever is good, my merc uses eth buggy zod um shaft, too cheap to put cta or anything on him hehe. He stays alive real good and he can kill with cwp/gaze/shaft.

Reapers Toll is definately a good choice. Mine uses an eth one and cuts thru the decrepped frozen monsters. If you can get an eth great poleaxe with 3 sockets, u can make a Crescent Moon which really can help out with its static and still do a good chunk of dmg. For mf reasons, mine wears upgraded skullders, but shaft is more than suitable for it. A great mid lvl wep is a Kelpie Snare. If you want to really slow the monsters, wear a kelpie and blackhorns and socket the kelpie with an amn to keep him alive. From the amount of slow, the enemy will move as fast as a heroin addict nodding out
