    The MF merc

    Yo guys,
    my merc uses a ptopaz skulders, ptopaz shako and a bonhew. My question now is:
    If my merc kills, does he kill with his amount of mf+my amount of mf, or just his mf
    And if i kill, do i kill with my mf+his mf, or just my mf??

    Thanks for helping out a little

    hmmm, that would suck since i deal the most amount of dmg and kill everything before he had the chance to arrive there...

    The idea behind the mf merc is to get the boss or whatever down to a sliver of health and let the merc finish him off.

    This would slow done the killing speed, this would affect ur running time and in the end this would affect ur drops, this cant be true!!

    It definately is true, you get no mf bonus from your merc if you make the kill. If he makes the kill you get (your mf) + (merc mf).

    It's really only good on boss or super-unique runs.

    So does any merc if you run far enough away from it, or get it trapped behind a door or something.

    Yeah, upgrading stuff's cube recipies.
    You can do Norm -> Exceptional Uniqs (armor / weap) and Norm -> Except -> Elite rares non ladder. Otherwise if your doing Except -> Elite Uniqs, you have to be on ladder.

    Ral + Sol + Perf Em + norm Uniq weapon
    Tal + Shael + Perf Dia + norm Uniq armor
    Ort + Amn + Perf Saph + norm Rare weapon
    Ral + Thul + Perf Ameth + norm Rare armor
    Fal + Um + Perf Saph + except Rare weapon
    Ko + Pul + Perf Ameth + except Rare armor

    Ladder Only
    Lum + Pul + Perf Em + except Uniq weapon
    Ko + Lem + Perf Dia + except Uniq armor

    i tried the stealskull, my merc died alot in pit runs because of no dmg reduce, and the extra 3% life leech is nice.

    So how good would a MF cleric pally work with an MF tank merc. Realy slow but you would have tons of mf and you could keep the merc healed
