Merc survival? Ok i finally got my new hell meph blizzard sorc up. She owns hell meph with 900 life and 700 mana. My only problem is my merc. Meph usually owns him easily and once my merc dies I am an open target. My merc is a lvl 77 defiance merc and I am lvl 77. My merc uses reapers toll / lionheart / blackhorns face umed. He has 75 all res in hell 2k dmg and 1.4k life. I tried putting a shaft on him and he still got owned. Any suggestions on keeping him alive would help me greatly.
