    pride vs leech/high dmg weapon for a2 might

    im thinking of making a pride for my merc, but the stats on pride SUCK donkey balls except for the concentration
    im a glass zon with 3k max dmg for FA with both auras active
    conc will obviously up my dmg, but if the merc keeps on dying, it'll just be a pain in the ***
    has anyone tried this?

    Your brain is broken. Insight has meditation, pride has concentration.

    if you use fa as main attack then use infinity instead
    otherwise pride, you need the conc

    i don't think pride is too bad as my merc can keep up fairly well, just make sure it's in a fast pole (thresher)

    I used reaper's toll prior to rune word pride. I miss the way decrepify would remove the PI(bowazon-strafer). Equip the merc with >6% LL. Crown of Thieves with 12%LL works much better than Vamp Gaze as only source of LL. Merc wears eth glad bane wire fleece near perfect, great armor with > 2k def. It takes a very big pack of black souls in world stone to bring Emilio down. He cruises thru hell cows much easier with 12LL vs 8. The freeze/blind target works perfect while I kill the mobs. No looking back once you have played with a level 20 conc aura.

    right now my merc is using amnamn bonehew
    i have no problems with any kind of pis except for fana unique urdars ^ ^
    so, crown of thieves, shaftstop sound good? with pride

    actually i was thinking, the ed from conc, is that equivalent to ed on the weapon?
    would make me feel a lot better

    I personally think that is the best combination possible for a Summon Nec, and Summon Necs are my "primary" character that I use. I am in the minority, though, more experienced Summon Necs believe that Infinity is a better choice (it is certainly a more powerful melee weapon for your merc).

    To answer the question posed in the title of the thread... Pride is a terrible melee weapon for your merc. On the other hand, in my opinion it is the best weapon your merc can carry to support your melee "minions" (merc, summons, valk, etc). So the question to ask yourself is are you trying to make your merc as powerful as possible, or are you trying to make everything except the merc as powerful as possible.

    i do not see any reason why should your merc use pride... as long as you´re not playing sp, there is always at least one hammerdin with conc i game

    therefore pride < all

    No, it's 9! Wait, 11! Wait, 12!

    Oh right - Arreat Summit says it's a range from 9-12.


    Uhh.. 30k smite? Lies. Show me the numbers.
