    My Might merc equipment

    Right now he is wearing Tal's Mask and has the Reaper's Toll. I also have a Bonehew but that requires 4 more lvls for him. And since I am lvl ** and probably won't reach 92 anytime soon, I was thinking of socketing Tals with a str jewel or something to give him 4 more St. And then giving him a Bonehew socketed with at least one amn. Do you guys think this is a good idea? Or should I look for another helm or keep my set up now?

    Thanks

    Try putting a Hel rune into one of the sockets and an Amn into the other. If a Hel is not avaliable, go to Act One Normal and look for jewels. I find -15% req. jewels constantly there.

    My Might Merc got a unique high damage spear socketed with 3 Amn's. He almost never died. I give credit to HoS, because that's his idea. The 3 Amn's regenerate his health almost constantly.

    My merc has a Ethereal andy's visage, godly boneweave of the something-or-other to give him strength and a 2 amn bonehew. He is self sufficient except when IM is present OR he is cursed and there is a horde of fanatacized archers.

    I'd keep the Reaper's Toll instead of Bonehew, my sorc's defiance mercs survivability atleast doubled if not tripled by switching Bonehew to Reaper's Toll.

    Crushing blow/Open Wounds set up on merc for boss runs.

    This is the gear i'm trying to get together for running hell baal/mephi with my skelemancer.

    Ethereal Hone Sundan socketed shael/amn/amn
    Crow Caw socketed P.Topaz
    Guillaume's Face socketed P. Topaz

    This will give overall

    80% crushing blow
    48% MF
    14% life leech
    7 FPA (down from 8)
    35% open wounds

    He survives hell baal fine at the moment without any resists gear, and only 5% life leech and a similar dmg weapon. Hopefully the crushing blow will speed things up a lot when i ever get the stuff together. It took 15 minutes to kill baal last time, for a great big pile of junk.

    Can anyone point me to a formula for open wounds dmg with char lvl btw?

    Defiance mercs are humorous. My frenzy baba has a defienace merc with the unique war pike (+80% def), courpsemourn and a gaze. With my warcries and his aura they can barely hit the bugger!! :D

    My merc got:
    Rockstopper
    Guardian Angel
    Reaper's Toll(amn)

    Should I change armor to something else?
    He got lightning and cold resistance above 85 with this armor and rest are near 80.

    Hmm, consider Steel Carapace instead of Corpsemourn? It's like a heavily improved version ;)

    I made the same mistake when 1.10 1st came out.... so eager to try out the bonehew. So I did all I can to bring my char lvl and merc lvl to 85. In the end, it was a disappointment... :teeth: thresher beats bonehew hands down.

    In my experience using a might merc with a nightfish build, i have used several different weapons on my merc. But the one i keep coming back to is an etherial +4 skills arioc. the + skills boost the damage on my merc and skeles considerably and if you use tals helm or vampire gaze for those richer players, he only dies to iron maiden. but thats just my 2 cents.

    Have you considered looking for an ethereal bonehew? It'll cost a bit, but if you really luv your merc.... The eth will lower the str req. and up it to well over 800 damage. I have a dual amn one on my skellymancers might merc as well as a stealskull and um'ed duriels. Iron maiden is the only thing that ever kills him...not even diablo or baal kill him.
    Plus it won't change your curse...even though the decrep has a very small range

    Eth Bonmehew rules!!

    I'm not sure what an Eth Bonmehew is ;) but I got an Ethereal Bonehew on ladder for a blackhand key. The guy was going to trade me that and a 30% nagel for it (blackhand is hardly worth that much IMO) and he switched the nagel to 29% when trading, but I didn't care. And he though he ripped ME off...heh heh he :D

    The Ethereal Bonehew is the best weapon for a Necro's Merc in my opinion since it does massive damage and does not overide my curses. I also use a Reapers Toll on the Holy Freeze merc of my Fireclaws Druid and that works wonderfully (superslow effect and Decrepify breaks physical immunes) for him but is not good for a Necro.
