merc question I know that it's better to buy a merc at the lowest possible difficulty and lvl him up, but I was wondering just how much better is this? I've got an act 1 fire rogue merc that's the same lvl as my hcl nec (93). With an upgraded goldstrike, rattlecage, and guillame's face, she seems ok. With this setup she does 236-847 damage. Because she's a rogue merc she hardly ever dies so I'm not really concerned about her 47 resists to all or her 1557 life. I was wondering how much more damage she would do if I had bought her in normal.
