    Ethereal items have improved defense and damage and have lower stat requirements. Items on mercenaries don't lose durability, so it doesn't matter that they can't be repaired. Also, some runewords are indestructible or repair themselves. Furthermore, some items are good enough that it's worth socketing them with a zod rune so that they don't degrade.

    Thanks for the info. Would an Eth Nightwing helm be useful for trading?

    I'm really not sure. It would really only be useful to someone who uses an act 3 cold merc or an act 1 cold rogue. Ask in the trade values forum.
