    unless you want a NM A2 merc aura (might/holy freeze/thorns), hire all your mercs in normal.

    Re: mercs

    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?

    Or

    We have to hire a normal Merc when lower level and leveling the merc up to gain the extra stats ?

    Re: mercs

    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.

    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.
