Merc's extremely rich setup - suggestion

Hi,

Supposely I am very rich and want to outfit my Act 2 definance merc with the best possible equipment.

Would the following be in the very RICH list ?

- eth BoTD great poleaxe
- eth CoH Barlog Skin
- eth Delirium bone visage

Will the above outfit take care of dmg + res + defence + any extra aura ?

Again this is my dream list, not trying to blow my trumpet ...

Appreciate any input.

Thanks.

Re:

Another Weapon Choice would be a DOOM Eth Greate Poleaxe (I had a doom eth cryptic axe and it whooped major butt)

you can see my merc gear under current projects

www.dracoy.1colony.com

So far thsi is what i have made for my mercs:

2x eth botd war pike
1x eth doom cryptic axe
3.5k def eth stone
some high def eth Chains of Honor
perfect ethereal bone hew
perfect giant skulll
etc

i love outfitting my mercs.

Anyways i chose the equiptment for my current merc because i needed the str bonus to wear armor from botd and giant skull also i couldnt use my ethereal doom because i needed leech :D

I'd rather do this setup, with either a might or defiance merc (depending on what char you're using):

1. eth doom cryptic axe

2. eth CoH in 786 def archon plate (524 reg, but 786 b/c ethereal) or 900 def Sacred armor (600 reg, 900 b/c ethereal) if you choose andy's visage as helm.

3. helm, you have a few more options, but I'd say that delirium isn't one of them. My top 2 choices would be:
(1) 577 def eth perf Andy's visage (perf = 10% ll, +30 str)
(2) 521 def eth perf CoA (perf = 15% dr, res all +30, 2 sockets)


in CoA's sockets you could put 40/15's or Ohm runes, since he won't be having a problem with resists. In Andy's visage you could put a rare 30% fire res, good ed jewel in if he's struggling with fire res.

'doom' ethereal thresher or
ethereal 3 socket tomb reaver high ed
ethereal 2 socket giant skull sockets whatever u want ( 2 ists?)
if u play boss runs use set winged helm. (godly 30% crushin' blow) it rapes bosses
um'd up'd ethereal guardian angel or
ethereal 'stoned' barlog skin near 3.5k def or
chain of honor (ethereal, not ethereal, ur choice, wont make much difference in defense)

howie

Wow, that was impressive.

However can you clarify the helm on your merc ?

Is the 2 x PUL runes be better replaced with say 2 x 40/15 ?

Regards,

OMG...give me a war pike, I'm having such a *** time getting for my barb :sleep:

Perf merc set up for me would be
Sup perf doom eth cryptic axe (on might merc)
perf defense ethereal sacred armor chains of honor
Ber Ber perfect crown of ages.

how are you going to get the 232 strength required for your armor on your act2 merc using that helm and weapon? The setup you have listed right now is impossible, even with a lvl 99 act 2 merc. a lvl 99 act 2 merc has only 205 base str, which is why I suggested eth andy's visage if you were going to use sacred armor.

Eth sacred armour would only need 209 str to wear right due to -10% str req?Couldnt you just put on andys visage to give 30 to str, giving you enough str to put on CoH which also gives 20 str, if you then replace the andys visage with CoA again, you would now have a merc with enough str to wear the CoH.
Would this work or would the CoH just drop to the ground when you took off andys visage even though the str your merc would have is now high enough.

Eth sacred armor have 222 str requirements. I know, I have one right there.

Just get 5 soc Eth Cryptic Axe. (I'll make Doom)
I have eth Andy Helm of about 532 def.
And i have a 3120 Stone eth Kraken Shell.
_________________________________________

Main problem: When i put Andy helm, the fire res goes from 69 to -35 -39 (not sure). Can someone explain this to me? isnt that suppose to be -35 fire res... If i can find a 15ias with good fire res jewel, it would be perfect for me.
Would help my merc reach a break point (doom 45%, next steep for cryptic is 56%.)

I might consider Chain of Honors if my fire resist problem cant be solve by adding the jewel (if i can find it also...)

DOH!

Forgot the 20ias on andy helm. I guess i'll just add the rune for fire res :)
Since i cant catch up next step of speed with another 15ias...

Oh well, I guess I'd have to make another one to see the difference :p
