Trying to pick a tank merc. I'm a level 77 Lighting Sorc, and I'm considering switching my act 2 defiance Merc with an act 5 Barb merc. The merc would primarily be a tank, mainly on Mephisto and Baal (MF character), but his secondary function would be to kill lighting immune mobs. My act 2 merc does fine right now, doesn't really get hit too much. But I'm wondering if taking the act 5 merc might be better, for an increase in damage, and things like stun and bash. So basicly wanting to know the advantages of one over the other, can the act 5 merc keep up tank wise with the act 2 one, and will what I gain make up for that loss if not? I'm aware theres no 100% better than the other one here, I'm looking for peoples opinions, as I've read though the FAQ's and can't come to a conclusion :grin: .
