    Slain Monsters RIP

    If I'm wearing this, and my mercenary (who has no SMRIP mod) kills a monster, will the smrip mod carry over to my merc's kill?

    I'm a blizz sorc who wants to do nhil. I can do it, but the CE is VERY annoying and I don't like burning 3 full juvs each time if I can avoid it.

    Unfortunately the answer is no IIRC.

    omgwtfbbqpwned is correct. RIP mod will not carry over to your merc. Only way to give merc RIP is with a Tyraels Might or Lawbring RW.

    Even if both you and your merc has RIP, self-exploded monsters can still be CE'ed, so it's never completely safe. If you rely on your merc for Insight or Infinity, you can try to give him one made in normal poleaxe with low damage. If you're using Spirit shield, you should have enough str to use a Phoenix monarch on switch, which you can consider as well.

    If your merc doesn't deal enough damage, he won't leech enough and die quickly, so giving him a low damage weapon is not a solution. In comparison to as lightning sorc, a merc won't kill much anyway, so you don't need RIP on him.

    Versus Nihlathak, stay away from the merc and the exploded suicide minions.

    just use regular lightning instead of chain lightning and except for the 1/20 times he's immune to lightning nihl will be dead before he can blow anything up, i usually kill him w/in 2 lightnings sometimes ones shot him

    after that switch to cl to clear the room

    Heh, no offense but some of you need to learn to read...

    I am a Blizzard Sorc. I am cold only.

    I AM ABLE to do hell nhil, it would just be much more efficient if the mod had carried over.

    Thank you for the help, I guess I'm going to have to get my light sorc up faster then I would have liked.
