Runeword armor decision for mercenary I have been sitting on a 3os eth archon plate for some time now. I want to make something good for my mercenaries, as they save my pixelous butt on regular basis. The question is, what to make. I have a very few mid-high runes, so if I spend those I _really_ need to feel it is worth it. Candidate 1: Treachery. IAS, FHR, and resists to trigger. Cheap as dirt Candidate 2: Duress. FHR, Crushing blow, open wounds and up to 200% ED. It is however rather expensive. Candidate 3: Gloom: Resists and up to 260% ED. Is the ctc dim vision worth it against ranged attackers? Also, it is the most expensive of the runewords within range. I am learning towards Duress, although it would mean burning my only Um rune. On the other hand, HF rushing will give me more of these in a few weeks, now semesters coming off. It somewhat comes down to a question of defence. I am guarantied 2500 def in Duress, but that might be to little for the monsters to notice. Then I would be better off with Treachery, for the high IAS and low cost. Comments would be appreciated, -Kanonfutter I could also take the Arkaines from my other mercenary, but I really dislike swapping equips from active chars.
