    Merc for Bone Necro?

    Was wondering if an Act 1, 2, 3, or 5 Merc would be best for a Bone Necro maxing Bone Wall, Prison, and Spirit first.

    I'm thinking Act 2 Defiance or Act 5.

    Um...this is a tough one.

    If it was me I'd go with either a act1 rouge with cold arrow (or act2 holy freeze merc) or go with a act5 barb merc to tank crowds for you.

    Its all a matter of preference and your playing style.

    Merc? Never ahahahaahaha!!! We done' need no stinkin' Mercs! Muhahaha!!!

    To answer your question, please see Hos post :) Honestly my preference is no merc. I prefer my clay golem Lumpy :)
    If you are going with one, get them early and lvl them accordingly. Getting them at lvl 85 is not a good idea as they are too weak and cannot progress without you going back difficulty lvls to help them out.

    Yea, mercs are usually too much trouble for me. I've never leveled one before so I don't know much about how to. But, I better learn, cause I think that my skelliemancer needs one leveled...so thats gonna suxxor.

    Here's what I do(since this thread is about a Bone guy...HF we go)

    I normally get mine around 35-36, give him some decent armor(shaft if you have it) and I gave mine The necro helm with life leetch and poison in it(forgot name) and a decent weapon.

    I took mine to act 4 in norm and got a few levels under his belt clearing outside of town through izzy...then would do norm ball runs(solo at first)

    By the time he was 40, I was doing pubby norm ball runs(and did so until he was 45. At 45 he got a Guardian Angel.

    In time, he will have Tal's helm, BoneHew, and still have his armor.

    If you get a norm merc....then you level him(or her) up in dark to start(and I like to keep going upwards(in pubby games)

    Once my merc is 13-15..I'm in act2(basically just helping out in pubby) and he will level 2-3 times during the game it seems like.

    Eventually, you move to act3(at around19-20)

    It takes alot of time and money to level up a norm merc...but it is worth it in the long run.

    For a necro, you would like to use a might or holy freeze merc, i think both are NM.
    Leveling a merc is no problem, when you play the game normal (not boosted).
    And i like my merc, and by the time he is lvl 70 or so, he never dies.
    Gave him a bonehew, tals helm and the set armor with 3 sockets (+strenght), i dont remember.
    He is might (for a summoner + CE), and rocks, but i still dont know what to socket in my bonehew (i guess 2x sheal).
