Merc Weapon troubles

Im having large difficulties getting my Blizz sorc past act 4 since my weapon of choice (a semi-decent insight polearm) was lost when one of the chars using it died. Thus I am out of decent gear for my merc and cant really kill the CI's guarding the sanctuary.
Since I am playing hc i dont feel confident teleporting and parking such large amounts of enemies and I must find something better.
The char is for the mf tourney, so I need to get at least to the resist scroll in act 5 and I need help finding the gear fast enough. Should I go for NM meph or should I try some area for a nice socketed polearm for a runeword?

Do you have access to an ethereal 5 socket Polearm? You could slap in the HONOR runeword into an ethereal 5 socket Lance and have a weapon for your merc that would do 140-460 damage and you could equip it before level 30 or so.

Or possibly run NM Meph and hope for a Hone Sundan to fall.

I agree with previous poster.I' ve been at same situation before few days and my advice is - do couple NM Meph runs or Hell Andy/Meph runs.I found there with my Blizzy an Ethereal Sundan and also Hell Meph was so sweet and gives me Ethereal Bonehew (very good roll).But i still played Chaos Sanctuary at players 1 setting :embarassed:

Good Luck

Thanx for the quick replies... will do a few nm meph runs then. Dont have the guts to run hell meph with my mf gear since my resists drop too much then.
