Armour = eth bugged Fortitude, (as heavy as your merc has strength to wear), gives you highest possible defence (with chilling armour), massive extra damage, huge resistances and extra life, damage reduction and higher lighting resist. It is in other words your merc's dreams come true.SirDooFuss said:When it comes to hats, what I really like is a nice anderial's visage socketed with a ral rune or nice jewel with fire resists.
Armor? I've got mercs with Duress, Fortitude, Shaftstop, eth rare armors, various uniques... I'm not real picky.
Merc weapon needs to be Pride for most situations but you may want to have a spare eth Reapers Toll for certain occasions like when you make cow runs. Your merc wont die even if 30 cows gang up on him if he uses eth Reapers Toll and your damage is increased since the entire cow crowd around your merc will be decreptified (if you use Atmas this might actually be a bad thing since only 1 curse can affect a monster at any one time). Also when killing bosses like Baal and Diablo I have found Reapers Toll working better than pride.bundler said:just wondering what you all like as a merc's gear. he is an act two, with a BotD. my zon is a strafer. not sure what the armor/helm preferred gear is.
