How necessary IS a Merc? :lady: My Frost/Zealot Pally is now in Act 2 Hell and I'm spending a LOT of money on reving my Merc which is an Act 2 Might NM. Is it viable to just go without him as he's costing me a small fortune or should I try a different one? I can't see that he's making that much of a difference. I've got him equipped with items that have CB but his resists aren't that good. Average of about 50% in all but poison which is around 40.
