Do they get the +22 vitality bonus from the Spirits?spirit is good for sword and shield for them
The display damage wont increase for any merc.. Because they use their skills randomly. The only thing that will display is the raw physical damage the merc makes. Its cool watching the merc use his sword when he gets swarmed. It only happened to me like 3 times I think my entire time playing diablo ii. Because they really arent all that good and I rarely use them. They're more of a novelty. Auras are way better. They need to make more auras for swords and shields maybe. Or they just need to give them more power, maybe more skills.I thought so about Vita... too bad they only have "life" and no Vita.
How does the +skill stuff actually affect the mercs? I haven't tried it on an Act 3 merc, but on Act 1 (jabbing) and 2 they don't get any damage increase.
(I think' I'm gonna try putting a spirit sword on an act 3 merc or a Lore, to see if the displayed damage increases)
