I did check my shortcut but it was fine. Given that I'm using FB's switcher, there is the possibility that I checked the wrong shortcut haha I will double check! Thanks
You have to remember that your Merc has no leech if you’re using Delirium so you have to take more precaution managing his position. It’s quite good once you’re around 97/98 because if you’re wanting to be efficient with XP at that point you’re skipping a lot of things and just hitting very specific targets so it keeps everything else busy while you melt what you want to kill.@Kitteh I also had this happen recently, but it was because I'd changed my D2 shortcut when I installed glidewrapper and forgot to add -direct -txt to the path ... of course you wouldn't do anything as shamefully stupid as this ... (but just in case). Once I fixed the shortcut I was happy to find my runewords were working properly again.
@Gynli I have just made Delirium for my Act 2 merc ... and found Insight/Delirium/Treachery was less survivable than Insight/Vamp Gaze/Treachery. I'm thinking Delirium will be the better option once I get CoH for the merc and he has a source of leech on the armor but there is no need to rush to make your Delirium. I'm guessing it could work on the Rogue merc though, as they are less likely to be tanking.

First and foremost he's a walking Conviction aura. But of course he also kills dudes if you just let him. I geared mine with Infinity + Fortitude + Andy's, aka pretty much the standard, safe and high damage go-to setup for Infinity Mercs IMO. I know others like to use Delirium with maybe CoH for leech or Treachery for IAS/Fade or something. Generally I'm not a big fan of such setups though, in particular it screws up that "beautifully predictable year 2000 programming monster movement" -- which IMO remains the best safety there is. Also for most characters their overall clear speed will suffer when monsters don't move in a "herdable" way. That being said, it also depends on the target -- I'm sure at some point when I start to target Nihl I'll strongly consider using Delirium.How do you guys equip your Merc, is he just a walking aura, or does he also do some P8 killing?
I guess for casters, It doesn't matter if Merc can kill, his main objective is to not die. But for a melee player, I'd assume if the Merc can do some damage, he can be of great help, no?
I am asking, because I thought about changing my Merc setup from eReapers/Treachery/Gaze to eReapers/Fort/45% IAS helmet, but I am also wondering if I really should bother, as he won't do much damage anyhow.
@Trapin' Finding a Reapers for your Merc would be a great improvement Why not Pindle runs? As for finding a new weapon, what about "Beast"? I don't know If +Fanat stacks to your current level, though.
Having already used two of my socket rewards, my suggestion is to hold off using them as long as you can, so you can be really sure that the item you socket will be part of your end game gear. That really, really rare drop that you are normally never likely to find but is perfect for your build, will probably drop at some point on your journey to 99.On a different note, im still unsure of where to use the sockets for the final gear.
My own experience of this is that it depends on your build, but also your level and the area you are running. For my Blizzsorc obviously the aura from Insight is important. But in the early 90s for Pindle and AT runs the merc's ability to kill CIs was also important. For LK runs only the aura matters (and the merc's ability to take hits away from the sorc if we tele into the middle of a pack). Now in the mid-90s with a lot of gear upgrades, on AT and CS runs we kill things a lot faster with Blizzard and so I tend to skip the CIs rather than waiting for the merc to kill them.How do you guys equip your Merc, is he just a walking aura, or does he also do some P8 killing?
Welcome to Zoe! Updates are entirely up to you, anything you like. Some people update every time that they get a level, find a nice item or something funny happens. Sometimes its a question that somebody wants input on. Other periodically post a really big update. Post as and when you like, with whatever you likeHello all,
I just made a brand new assassin I would like to enter into the race for 99. I am about to start running her. Her name is zoe (after the newest league of legends champ that came out a few days ago!!) Lets see how this goes! What milestones are relavant posts to this thread without cloging it up with useless info?
