If you dont have any other lifeleech sources, put in amn+amn, otherwise shael+shael for another ias breakpoint.

Since you already have some life leech it would probably be better to Shael it. If your merc attacks faster, then he'll also leech more, also less chance of his attack being interrupted wich equals no leech at all. If your merc has bad resists then you could get an upgraded Duriel's Shell, that should give him max resist.

Socketing a weapon for resistance seems a bit wasteful to me. Well, unless it's an orb or a wand or soemthing, and even then I'd rather facets...
