    Well my merc is slightly different...

    Might merc with ethereal Kelpie Snare (75% slow), Ethereal Guardian Angel +15 max resists, and Tal's mask for leech.... He does really well on the resists and his damage ain't too shabby... Although I don't know if Kelpie can be upgraded... If so I will... Duriels can be upgraded I believe for a higher defense.... Spire will work for the time being I would start trading around for a different weapon if your not happy with the merc's damage....

    Kelpie may be good for the extra slow effect.... add a CG lets just call it the paralizing combo...

    yey clay golem, holy freeze merc and decrip on baal...
    i must say he becomes insanly slow...
    and to think i use to not think the clay golem made a diffrence...
    THE FOOL I WAS!

    but neway... i was rethinking this thread and should a holyfreeze even be rlly worried with dmg? i mean you said kelpie would be good for more slowing, and i basicly use the spire for that lil dmg and the rep life...

    I reread your first post.... Why are you using a holy freeze merc other than for the slow effect?.... I would suggest switch to Might which will boost your skelly damage and speed up killing process... grab a kelpie and that will give you the slow you desire with your merc... And our lil clay buddy is always ready to be cast into the fray...

    The dying slowly is why people use a Might Merc. With Might your Skellies are unstoppable. Well not really, but they do way much more damage.

    Hrm this might not belong is the necro forum but assuming I am not using a necro which is better Reaper's Troll or an Ethereal Arioc's needle for my merc?

    Since you are not a Necro, it might be better to use Reaper's. It is a nice polearm and you do not have to worry about your curses getting over written by the level 1 Decrep.

    This may be off-topic. I found a 3-socket unique pike for my merc. It's called Hone Sundan Yari. Dmg is 103-209. Some 187% enhanced dmg. Should I keep it? The weapon does fantastic dmg. How about the 3-sockets? 3 p diamonds?

    as soon as I can get the Pul I'm upgrading the kelpie snare fuscina to stygian pike.... Added damage will help... BTW... the 3 sockets are nice on hone I would use something that adds either MF or dmg to your merc... also life leach would be nice if he doesn't have from other gear....ONE MORE THING

    My ethereal Kelpie does 100-200+ damage not too shabby when merc turns on the might he's doin 700-1500 damage Add that to amp curse and he's able to take down any hell monster w/o too much difficulty....

    My merc hardly ever died once he had his, and I tried to get it from him...but he insisted on fighting me for it. Razen lost his head...and the body followed.

    He was a good merc.

    Rare Eth Ogre Axe 600+ max, Crown of Thieves, some weird Rare eth Balrog Skin

    Only time he ever dies is when he kills himself on Ob Knights.

    Nest step is Tomb Reaver and Skullders
