merc help

I got a combat merc in act 2 hell. He is level ** but only had 187 str. I would really like to equip him with bonehew but it requires 195 str.

He wears shaft and vamp right now. Would a defense or offense merc have more str? Its going to take till like lvl 92 till he ever can wear it!

other act2 mercs will not have more str. a a5 merc might have more str, but i can't recall the stats on all mercs.

if you socket the bonehew with a hel rune (i think its -20% reqs on wep) he will be able to use it. 195*.8=156

one great thing now is that you can unsocket it later if you want an amn in it at lvl 92.

Also you could socket his armor or helm with a pure amethyst ...
If you choose to socket bonehew ,you'd rather use one of those jewels with -15%reqs and possibly an other good mod (much more easy to find) and keep the hel rune to unsocket it later
You can see all the merc's characteristics in the mercenaries folder
If you can, make a chains of honor on a high defensive armor(strength is not to much of a problem for him) the +20 strenght and godly other mods will make Jemali the happiest merc on realm :flip:

Sorry i didn't see that ...
unsocket formula is hel rune + town portal scroll + the item to unsocket = the gem( rune, jewel ) is destructed and leave a free space
You can also see all these lovely (new) formulas in the horadric cube folder ...
