Two newbie questions I'm sure these have been posted dozens of times, but I've been looking for close to a week now and I haven't found any info on these two questions, so I'll risk being called stupid and ask anyway. First: How do you determine the speed of the weapon? I know there are various levels of 'fast' and 'very fast'... how do you know what EXACTLY your weapon is? I'm assuming there's a formula, but I sure can't find it. Second: What are some good attributes to get, offensively, for an Act 3 merc? From what I understand, the damage doesn't actually go up when you give him a more powerful sword, so you basically want swords that have some good mods on them. So which mods are considered good for this merc? Does "% Damage to Undead/Demon" work? If my merc is a cold merc, and I find a sword that gives 20-40 cold damage, does that affect his spells at all? What about "Hit Blinds Target" or "% Life Drain"? If all of these work, what's the best mods to be looking for? What gems/runes would benefit on a sword? Basically... is there a list somewhere? heh I know that the Act 3 merc is considered a waste of effort by a lot of people, but I completely dig this merc. I don't need the killing power, just the extra time that his freezing gives me. And only on my werewolf druid. He's useless on my other characters.
