    merc trouble

    I play non ladder US west

    I started this game about a month ago and made a hammerdin for the same reason everyone else makes one cause they own.. But i got bored of him cause he didnt have any gear and even though i had the basic gear enigma, hoz, shako
    etc... he was still really bad. So i made a light sorc and i loved her but now im hearing i have to have infinity on my sorc in order for her to be any good. Now im frustrated cause i have insight on my sorc and not infinity. I also heard that insight is worth alot and was thinking mb i can trade that to get all the runes i need to build up my Hdin and buy a ebotd to go on my merc for hdin. Do i even need a merc for Hdin. Please help im so confused on what to do.

    You heard wrong, Insight worth nothing.

    Insight RW:

    Ral + Tir + Tal + Sol

    Level 12-17 Meditation Aura When Equipped (varies)
    +35% Faster Cast Rate
    +200-260% Enhanced Damage (varies)
    +9 To Minimum Damage
    180-250% Bonus to Attack Rating (varies)
    Adds 5-30 Fire Damage
    +75 Poison Damage Over 5 Seconds
    +1-6 To Critical Strike (varies)
    +5 To All Attributes
    +2 To Mana After Each Kill
    23% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

    Trading insight could you get buying only a zod rune.

    Curious why do you want eBOTD? Insight is awesome as it ensures your hdin will not run out of mana casting hammers. Why an infinity is needed is because of the light immunes in hell. As for the insight that you have, it depends on the roll (you want med 17) and the base it is made in (eth cv & eth ca) being popular. Still it is no way close to the price of a infinity which is Ber + Mal + Ber + Ist (3.75 hrs) excluding the price for the base.

    I say MF more and trade to try and build up. Just curious, why are you playing NL? LOL I am a pure ladder player and can't imagine playing NL :p

    insight is good until u do chaos runs when im hits the board, thats why i use a a1 merc with ice so it slows down the minions and she can't die to im =).

    insight is worth more than few HRs on NL so it depends whether u play ladder or non.
