    mercs

    got a question...it might be a little off topic but...

    the mercs in act 3 (the magic casters) are, as I was told the best merc, but I was wondering how to increase thier attack damage my cold merc doesnt cut it when it comes to damage....

    simply put.... how do you increase thier damage?

    The statement that act 3 mercs are the best is highly debateable. It depends very much on the character type. Act 2 mercs are probably the most popular.

    I'm sure you confuse something here. In fact, the act 3 mercs are the worst. Their AI is too bad to make them effective spellcasters. Most people say that act 2 mercs are the best. And most (including me) say, the best of the best is the defensive one from nightmare.

    I agree with the previous postings; There's about no one who can beat an Act 2 merc. But, I'll answer to your question.

    Probably Rainbow Facets of the corresponing element and items (e.g. Ormus and Griffon) can increase damage. I have found useful one thing very few knows for a sorc; It might help with mercs too.

    In hell, most staff/wand merchants can sell necromancer wands of lower resist. They have 75 Charges of level 2 Lower Resist. This is a good weapon to beat e.g. Mephisto. But this is mostly useful for only yourself if you are a sorceress :)
