Mercenaries I have a nice level 17 merc archer from Act 1. I kept her with me through all of Act 2. But at the end of Act 2 when I asked for help with Duriel, someone (sorry I forget your handle) said I should trade in my Act 1 merc for an Act 2 merc. However by that time all the 'for hires' were at level 11 or less while my archer was at level 17. But the Act 2 merceneraies were fighters. I did save my save and tried one out, but he wasn't much better than the archer against Duriel, so I restored (manually-I have Diablo save/load .bats!) Now I'm at the beginning of Act 3. The mercenaries seem to be all sorceresses. I think I will trade in the archer for a sorceress. Questions: What's the best strategy for mercenaries? Should we get a new one each act? Or should we find one that has different skills than our NPC and keep him/her? Should I have a high level fighter instead of hiring another sorceress?
