    Merc with peace?

    Hello there,

    I'm building a nice PvM bowazon for Chaos and the likes. For my merc i am focusing not really on survavibility (since i will go for a heavy duty Valk), rather on special attacks to wear off enemies when i'm MSing.

    Now i was wondering two things:

    - Do all items with CTC work on merc, especially Rattlecage and Peace rw?
    - If so, would my own Valk dissapear when Peace triggers a lvl 15 Valkyrie off my merc?

    I'm sure blizzard would have thought of this, else you would have 2 Valks which would be nice :p Has this been tested?

    Actually, in 1.11 the casting of Valk when on a merc crashed the game, so they fixed it by disallowing it to be cast in 1.11b (current version).

    Save for a few moments where he/she will dissappear due to missing animations, yes.

    Delirium works right on mercs and all kind of CTC it have, even that weird delirium(merc change to a doll lol).Can you list what equipment you have for merc?For bowazons eth reaper tool is a nice choice but for a dedicated chaoser may be a problem due iron maiden curse, my bowie is wf user with act1 merc with faith and IMO is the better combo for chaos.

    Using same setup WF/Faithmerc i'm going for strong Valk, Delirium head and armor i'm not sure yet. I was thinking of going for upped Rattlecage for run away monsters or ones that come too close. If it's no good, i'll prolly give her a duriel or something, doesn't really matter :)

    Crushing blow is nerfed for ranged attacks, best option(read expensive) is a eth fortitude, I used as a temp a eth treachery for ias and venon dmg.

    she usually stays safe. you really could probably equip her with faith and nothing else and she'd be fine. particularly since you're clearing everything in your path.

    Thanks for the replies. I've giving my merc an Eth bugged Delirium Demonhead and Upped Rattlecage. Works wonders really. Any monsters that slip through are caught by either Confuse or Flee proc, the combo is really nice!

    I just wish my merc would try and keep up with me! Still any content is easily cleared. On bosses i use targetlock as much as possible out of screen or just fire GA's. Still <20 sec Diablo kills is possible.
