    What is your level now? If it is still 42, or if it still below your mercenary's level, that is the cause. Mercenaries can never get a higher level than your character, and if they are higher when you buy them, they wait with leveling until you catch up on them.

    If your around the 40s you shud do nm cows. Only if you can kill off cows really quickly before the cows come and hit the merc. If you do that enough he shud be able to wear better stuff than it'll get easier.

    Act 3 where? Nightmare? Experience penalties apply to your merc as well: if you are in an area which is a little too high for him, he will get less experience. Try to do some sewer and/or arcane runs with him in Nightmare. Make sure that he does a lot of kills for himself, in fact you should only be there to provide backup when he needs it (actually, another reason why you should be there is that he is there with you so he can make the kills, cause if you are not there, he is with you and therefore not there as well so he can't make the kills and that wouldn't make any sense, but hey *gasp*).

    If he has trouble killing things for himself, that is a sign you should go a bit lower. Good luck!

    The way I level my mercs is to stay in the same area where the monsters are at or a little above or below the merc's level. And then move on when his exp gains drops.Remember that the merc has to get the kill in order to get the most exp. If you are a sorc then youve got it easy, just Static the critters down and let your merc finish them off.
