    Trying to find what to make my sock items into

    Alright. I'm not new to the game, just new to these forums [... small icebreaker XD]

    I'm currently running a Holy Freeze Pally [Lv20] with an Ice Arrow Merc [Still Act1]

    Trying to find a good bow to give my merc. I have a two Sock Long Bow and three sock Short bow. Had a two sock Hunter Bow but tossed it.

    Right now... she has a Rare - Brimstone Stinger Hunter's Bow
    %27 Enhanced Damage
    +2 Min Damage
    +38 Attack Rating
    23% Damage to Demons
    50 To attack rating against Demon
    Add 1-2 Cold Damage
    7 Poison Damage

    Not many RuneWord for Missile I can currently make. Rune Wise.. I have El, Eld, Eth, Ith, Ral, Tal, Tir. I have about two of each. My Merc is lv19.

    May as well list all her equip..
    Helm
    Nadir -Cap-
    Def 17 [Won't list it unless you want me to]

    Armor
    Loathe Shell Hard Leather Armor - Rare -
    +10% Faster Hit Recovery
    +3 Life
    +2 Strength
    +8% Cold Resist
    +9% Fire Resist

    Also, should [when I get the runes] make my 3 soc targe into a Ancient's Pledge? or should I wait until I get a higher up 3 soc shield?

    Any suggestions would be awesome =) [Runewords or not =)]

    1. Act 1 Rogues, in the beginning, like it best when they use Longbows stuffed with chipped/flawed gems. Put a sapphire and 2 topazes in a 3-socket Longbow shopped from Gheed, and she will do just fine until you can get your hands on the A2 defensive/combat mercenary.

    2. For armor, I suggest getting something with +poison resist, for when you have to face Andariel in Catacombs. You can also use Stealth (Tal+Eth), that is, if you have the runes.

    3. Definitely make Ancient's Pledge. For untwinked, this will be your solution to resist problems until at least mid-late Nightmare. However, consider finding a better base defense shield to stick your runes in. Also, aim for highest possible base res. For now, stick chipped diamonds or Eld's (depending on what hurts you more: elemental or physical attacks) in your Targe.

    Alright. I definitely have the runes to make a Stealth [My Pally has one] but I can't find another 2 sock Armor [Hard Leather or otherwise] So i'll probably take off my MF stuff and go kill things and hope for the best.

    i'll have to start looking for gems too. I only got a chipped diamond at the moment.

    It's very easy to shop a Ringmail or a Studded Leather from Charsi. Just use the Cold Plains waypoint to quickly refresh the trading screen. 1/9th of all armors (I think) Charsi sells (non-magical) will be socketed, and then there is 1/3 chance for 1, 2 or 3 sockets. Didn't take me long to shop 2 3-socketed ring mails. Should take you even less.

    For gems, use /players x command if playing Singleplayer, or join games with multiple players. Monsters will be harder to kill, but you will get more drops and xp.
