Merc Leveling in v1.11

I recently made a lightning sorc because I came across a -53% light res Infinity, she is level 57 and my merc is from normal act 2 and I've been trying to level him. I havent played Diablo since 1.09 so I am assuming that leveling the merc from normal to say level 63 (to use Infinity) will be better than hiring a level 57 merc in terms of stat points, is this still the case? My question to you is there still any benefit in getting a low level merc and leveling him or just hiring a high level merc?

Thanks in advance.

Simply hire him when your character has high in level.
The merc's level will have similar level with you when you hire him.
Also normal mercs are better than hell mercs, so I think you better hire a merc in normal mode unless it is only available in NM, holy freeze merc, for instance.

Leveling your merc has never had an affect on their stats. It's difficulty that does. I am surprised I hear it so much.

so then why would someone get Nightmare or Hell mercs? They have different auras? In general the level of the merc is relative to your level correct? so regardless if i get a merc from Normal NM or Hell if im level 57 my merc will be around that level but the difference will be the normal merc will have more stat points and different auras then the NM or Hell Mercs? sorry for all the questions I just want a powerful defiance merc that can use Infinity ASAP
thanks again

Normal and hell mercs have same auras, so no reason to buy one in hell.

Nightmare has useful mercs, one with might and one with holy freeze.

Normal has prayer, blessed aim, and defiance.

There is no reason whatsoever for a sorc to have a defiance merc, go with prayer or holy freeze.

Edit: the -53% light resis has no bearing on you when merc is holding it. Why can't people understand that?\

Double Edit: It is things like that that should be posted on the stupid news screen that is well over a year old... Imagine that it said useful information that stopped these rumors... "ondal's wisdom does NOT take your exp" etc...

I'm going to name my next sorc "meteorsafe4urxp".

-light res on infinity provides no benefit to your sorc unless she is holding it
it's conviction that matters
