    Should I scrap my prayer merc?

    I'm level 77 and I'm beginning to realize how horrible prayer is compared to other merc auras. I have 67 unused skill points, and I'm strongly considering the skellimancer route. Of course as a skellimancer, prayer would be a complete joke for augmenting my massive army.

    If I did get a might merc from nightmare, he'd be around level 47. By the time he finally reaches level 77 again, he would be down a few hundred hp compared to the last time he was level 77.

    Being the newbie that I am, I'm at quite a loss for what to do. Any suggestions?

    P.S. I've heard vaguely about armor that gives off auras. Would there happen to be a chest piece with might, and would my merc give off both prayer and might at the same time while wearing it?

    skel's = might merc
    poison / bone = holy freeze

    no armor gives might aura

    'bramble' armor gives thorns aura
    'doom' weapon gives holy freeze aura

    sorry, misread your post, just as G said, only thorns and hf, can be fitted on your merc through items

    all you have to do is keep them alive. if/when they die, go to the slave trader in whichever act your in and choose 'resurrect merc' instead of hire.

    so you can take an a1 rogue merc from normal all the way into hell baal / cows whatever. same goes for any other merc in the game.

    regards,

    Ayup, I've a might merc with the holy freeze aura weapon that has the runeword, 'Doom' on it. Holey-moley garganzoli you should see the carnage!

    Heh! :lol: :thumbsup: 'Slave trader' he says! How apropo!

    I can imagine a used-car-lot-like salesman with a corral full of 'pre-owned' prayer mercs that have been brought back by next-level necros.

    Thanks for the info guys!

    I hired the might merc and leveled him back up in no time. With my skeletons and all, it seems infinitely more effective than my old merc. :clap:
