Tired of merc dying to meph Ok so I started up again after 2 years. I made a meteorb sorc who I made to MF with to build some wealth. When MFing I do: countess, pits, andy, meph, shenk, eldritch, and pindle. I have no problems with anything but meph. Without my merc I can just moat trick and easily kill meph in under 30 seconds. My merc simply cannot handle meph even with 70-75 resistances. Even if I do moat trick he tries to attack anyway and sometimes gets meph to attack me! He's a liability basically, but I need him to tank for every other run I do. He uses tal's mask, insight, and shaftstop, keep in mind I'm still a bit poor. Anyone have any suggestions how I can deal with this hassle that ruins my otherwise flawless MF runs? My merc and I are both level **.
