NoNoNo. Try to get an Eth CV or an Eth CA. If you try to get non eth CV/CA your str will be too much unless your merc has alot of +str or he's just a really high level.What are the best 4 socketed weapons to make an infinity in?
I have a 4 socketed Halbeard.. is that any good?
Simply negates my response. He's right. And yes, ethereal does lower the STR requirement which I didn't know when I bought a non-eth CV which my merc could NOT use without a 3 faled helmet.Either an ethereal elite weapon, preferably superior too.
CV, GPA, CA are all great.
a non-superior, non-ethereal normal Voulge. It's the slowest, weakest possible polearm for an Infinity. Why?
1) Your merc will not die to Iron Maiden. VERY powerful in the Chaos Sanctuary and Worldstone Keep.
2) Infinity has 40% CB regardless of what weapon you use. Conviction is there to make YOU kill faster. CB is what takes down bosses. Normal enemies will be torn asunder by your attacks anyway. The extra weapon damage is really just there for unbreakable immunes and to look pretty.
3) At 50 strength, a Sorceress can use it if she wishes. An Infinity held by a Sorceress grants up to -140 lightning resist (Conviction+-55%).
I dunno but talking about Crushing Blow when a sorceress is involved seems like a pretty moot point, even on your merc. I mean especially on a light sorcs who has Static as a pre req. Static hits 100% of the time, takes 25% life and casts quickly. A boss will be at half health far before a merc even triggers Crushing Blow.2) Infinity has 40% CB regardless of what weapon you use. Conviction is there to make YOU kill faster. CB is what takes down bosses.
