rougue merc & damage to undead

Hi, I'm playing a daggermancer with a rougue merc (fire) , she is using a skystrike ATM, and I am wondering if something like an upgraded rougue's bow (+100% damage to undead) & the face of horror (+50%) would help more than skystrike.
The undead have so much poison resist that is a pain killing them, so maybe this will result as the poor man goldstrike :)
maybe a better idea would be a 6 eld's bow?

Stick with the Skystrike for sure, IMO. The upgraded Rogue's Bow would help, but the 1-250 lightning damage from the Skystrike is going to be doing most of the damage for your rogue anyway, and is quite good at that level.

OT: is your avatar from digital blasphemy? i think i recognize it as the thing above the dude's hand.

edit: if you want a Kuko and Goldstrike Arch for your merc, send me an email (j-kurtin(at)northwestern(dot)edu)

thanks a lot, but I'm in the HCL, so I can't accept it

I would recommend going for another merc :) You're going to be running into AR issues starting in Act 3 Hell. *hint hint* :)

well, Poet, my AR is not a problem, is way above 7k and growing up every level. My barb with ~3,5k was pretty fine (with battle cry)

Alternatively, go with a "melody" runeworded elite bow since it also has 350%ED to undead if you already have the runes. The rarest rune is 'Ko' which can be found off hell countess.
