I gonna be a mf skelliemancer, what merc should i choose?
Welcome to the wild, wild World of the Undead!

Most use Act 2 Might Mercs, some use Act 1 Rogues (there are some pretty crazy runewords you can make with bows now-a-days, but Faith is pretty popular). I prefer the Act 1 Rogues for style points personally. :grin: There are a few that use the Iron Wolves from Act 3, Act 5 Barbs are also rare.

Good luck and Good Hunting!

Welcome to the forum :smiley:

I am using a A2 NM Might Merc so my skeles can do more dmg co'z of the Might aura. His gear is Gaze 19% DR 8% LL, "Obedience" in a Eth Thresher and a "Duress" and I never saw his life go down in a Chaos Sanctuary run :azn:

Unless you take off his weapon, he will die in 1-2 hits when IMed..

There's no doubting the Act 2 Nightmare Offensive merc is the best. At higher levels it can at least double the listed damage of your skeletons.
 
Okay im choosing for the Nm Offensive merc because i cant afford a good faith bow for a act1 merc

What shall I choose a NM Offensive merc or a Hell Offensive merc? What's the difference?

What weapon shall I use for merc? What helm? and what armor?

Act II Might Town Guard is still the best since if you can get Faith, you might as well get Beast instead and carry it yourself.

Hell Offensive has Blessed Aim, not Might.

Helm: Vampire Gaze, Shako, Ral'd Andariel's Visage, Crown of Ages.
Armor: Shaftstop, Duress, Chains of Honour, Enigma, Duress, Fortitude, Liooheart.
Weapons: A lot of choices, but two of the more expensive ones are Pride and Infinity.

I am a MF skellimancer.

I have an A2 NM Offensive merc. It is essential to have one in order to not die of boredom waiting for your minions to kill monsters.

His gear consists of:
Duress
Eth Obedience
Crown Of Thieves with a Ptopaz socketed.

The huge amount of Crushing Blow from Obedience and Duress makes short work of bosses, and the crown has huge life leech properties, so he rarely gets into trouble. I can hell cow with just him and my clay golem. The Ptopaz just adds a little extra MF when he kills something.

When getting a merc wether you are rich or poor, look for Crushingblow and Increased Attak Speed in the gear you equip, it is really necessary when facing tough bosses.

A necro is my top character, and does everything (solo uber trist, mf, rush...everything). I, like many others, use an Act II Merc. His set up is: Eth Thresher "Infinity", Umed Ethereal Andy's Visage with 8%Leech, and Ethereal Hellforge "Bramble". For stronger bosses (really only ubers, no need otherwise) I throw on a Guillame's helm instead to give him a total of 75% CB. No sweat. The only thing that's killed him in a long while is when I (stupidly) forget to unequip his weap in Chaos. Big OOOPS there.
