    Need advice on act3 cold merc

    My hammerdin currently has an act2 holy freeze merc lvl86, and at this level i mostly play in the river of flame-chaos sanct. or worldstone keep.

    The current merc does great, but he dies instantly to IM, and its a pain to resurrect him every 5 mins.

    So i think i may try an act3 cold merc, but im not sure if its worth the trouble of leveling him. Can some who has one of these mercs post how he is doing?

    Any help will be very apreciated

    Cold sorc merc will only freeze one target at a time, and will continue to freeze this target untill either a: you move and interupt his action, or b: his target dies and he moves onto a new target.

    This is the same with rogues. I suggest keeping your act 2 merc and just avoiding things with iron maiden.

    alright, this is a little trick I did to make my merc stop killing himself, but it kinda ruins his damage:


    Give him a shi tty weapon.


    Problem solved. He can't do enough damage to hurt himself and he still freezes everyone :p

    give your merc a woestave

    its a normal halberd with low damage but excellent mods. socketed with a nef, it really kicks the butt. knock back with freeze/blind is unparalleled crowd control. open wounds is always welcome.

    Two Hand Damage:(15-18) - (55-64)
    Durability:55
    Required Dexterity:47
    Required Strength:75
    Required Level:28
    Base Weapon Speed:[0]
    +(20-40)% Enhanced Damage
    -3 to Light Radius
    Hit Blinds Target
    Prevent Monster Heal
    -50 To Monster Defense Per Hit
    Freeze Target : +1
    50% Chance of Open Wounds
    Slows Target By 50%

    Thx all for the advice. :) I found an ethereal bonehew last week and i gave it to this merc (my pala allways gets the best stuff) but i guess it will go to another merc.
