Mercenary Weapon Comparison Mercenary Weapon Comparison Notes: Uniques/runewords are assumed perfect. Elemental dmg (and poison) is quartered at the dmg/sec calcs, because the physical dmg gets tripled at around lvl 90. The unique items with poison dmg have a slightly higher (20 - 30) dmg/sec rate than they should, but I don't want to make the Viperfork look even more pathetic than it already is, so no fixing of that error. Deadly Strike is powerful on a merc. Very powerful. I'll add the bnet runewords later: Infinity, Insight, Destruction and Obedience.
