My sorc's merc

Hi guys! :cool:

I rly need some advice on equip for my merc. I am a pure light sorc and cna easily solo meph, but but but... If I bring my merc in the durance he will be fine untill we meet meph. Then my merc mostly gets 2 hitted :cry: That kinda stinks, so ofc i need some better merc gear, because I have heard about people who can take out meph with a merc tank without even tossing him any pots. I'm kinda tired of soloing meph, because I need a good and reliable merc now, because I wan't to MF baalruns now. And without a good merc in baalruns im dead... I don't have a lot of money rly, but I sold some stuff and now i got a ist.
So! Is it possible to get a desent merc with my ist rune?


thx:thumbsup:

You really need to ask two separate questions:
1) what do we recommend for your merc
2) how much is that going to cost

1) would be easier to answer if we knew what type of merc you had and what he is wearing

2) is really the purview of a trade forum.

Perhaps you would like to give us a clue on 1). My light sorcy has a HF merc with Insight, Duriels and Tals Helm. I think damage reduction (Levathian and helm) would be better against Memph because I don't think you can leech from him. Really mercs and memph aren't a good combo.

well if you can afford it i'd use a high def. eth fort, Eth CV infinity and a Vamp Gaze. thats what i use and it works great for me but if you can't afford that maybe strap on a insight(if ur short on mana) and any high def. armor. vamp gaze shouldnt be hard to get and the LL help keeps him alive

Okay great. Now i got Leviathan and Vamp gaze and Obediance for the resist. But my merc is still being slapped around and prolly dies in the 3rd or 4rth wave of baalminions -_- /cry I can never do baalruns.

teleport around to keep him alive. My sorc's merc, even at level 90, gets eaten by meph pretty quickly. Whenever your merc even gets CLOSE to meph, teleport to re-position him, and keep him alive. My merc NEVER dies to meph this way.

It just means you'll be tele-ing 3 times per second, though.

Obediance does do mass damage but if you want to keep him alive look into a reapers tool. The decryp will slow things down a lot and will amp his damage so he leaches more.

don't even know what that is^^. Reapers tool? Hm...

Well as Eilo sad, I can tele around, but then I will have some problems doing light dmg if I tele a lot -_-

Hit the bosses with life-tap/Decripify/Amplify before or while your mec is fighting.

Purchase a wand with charges of the curse from a vendor and have it as your weapon switch.

if you're doing the infininty/insight/obedience thing with vamp gaze and leviathon be sure to add some IAS in there somewhere (sockets are good). The faster your merc attacks - the more he leeches.
