Which act 2 merc has the prayer aura?
Normal or Hell combat mercs will have prayer aura.
Thanks a lot man I appreciate it
From the Arreat Summit
Hire a normal one, not hell, he'll have better stats.
Huh. ? really ?
unless you want a NM A2 merc aura (might/holy freeze/thorns), hire all your mercs in normal.
What stats are better ?
it's a throwback to the days when you had to level up a merc.
Hmm.. a couple more question regarding merc ..
My Character is lvl92 now. So the Merc I get in Normal will be around that level too ?
IF SO, the Merc lvl92 in Normal will Have a better Stats compared to Hell Lvl92 Merc?
We have to hire a normal Merc when lower level and leveling the merc up to gain the extra stats ?
First question : No there is a max on merc to be hired level.
The normal merc will however when compared to a hell merc with the same level have sligthly better stats.
You can hire the merc in normal at the maximum level (6x?) and then do the rest of the levelling yourself. Which shouldn't take too long, just use the proper monster level areas.
oh man. Thanks alot.
hmm.. i tot there were threads talking about merc and iirc (apparently its incorrect) that hell norm and nm mercs does have the same stats. argh. going to terminate my contract with Wendy from act 1 and get another one from normal.
hey wait.. hmm how much stats do they actually differs ?
this is correct
nope. thankfully the days of levelling up an idiot, sorry, merc are over.
It's more everything. More strength, more dexterity, more life, more defense, more resists, more damage, more attack rating, higher skill levels (Attack stills, auras, inner sight, etc), and larger chance to attack. It's significant. And since 1.11 removed the merc hire level cap, there's no reason to hire a merc in hell anymore.
EDIT: One of many accurate merc guides here.
Mwah then I got pwned : I still live with the old merc standards. I hope I can be forgiven.
