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.

Re: Trying to find what to make my sock items into

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.
