how to raise strength on a merc to use bonehew? this should be an easy question: I just found a bonehew yesterday in the pit :xmad: - it has a high strength requirement - 196 my question is how do i get my merc's strength up to that level? I am new to the merc game and am now in the process of leveling my merc (he is about level 50 or so) - his strength is approx 118 now. Will his strength get there on its own as I level him up to reach near my level (lvl 89 fana/zealot) or do I have to equip him with + strength gear? Thanks.
