    no merc

    Merc dies there and its harder to separate those bosses if merc is around anyway, so taking merc makes task much harder.
    It's easy task for smither anyway.

    Sounds possible for the merc to live once you get lifetap going. Try this out:
    ebotd wp
    bugged fort
    andy's ral or 15 ias/30 fire resist jewel(if you can)

    I am not guaranteeing that he will live but you know what im saying. But when physical immune monsters spawn then he will be toast for sure.

    What is the point though? You may save a minute from the run, but from time to time the merc will grab baal while you are against diablo, or just die quickly. Having no merc is slowest but has the least variables.

    Thats what I was trying to bring up. The physical immunes that baal spawns are physical immune, the merc will still attack the physical immune monster, and bam merc dies. The merc I just said in the last post here really works well in regular pvming situations.

    short story: no merc
    long story: they die easily

    As the other posters said, it would be best to simply not bring a merc in with you. They complicate things and don't provide much of any help.

    But if you were insistent on bringing Emilio into battle in Ubertrist, I would not use eBotD. Use an eth reaper's toll. I'm not sure (haven't checked the #s) but the decrepify might be enough to break the phys immunities of the spawns. Either way, it will certianly make your CB and killing blows do 2x as much damage to the ubers (who naturally have 50% phys resist).

    Re: Uber tristram Merc

    You do not want your merc casting Decrepify if you are planning on using Life Tap.

    IMO, an Uber Smiter has no need for a merc. It's not like you have to buff with a merc to barely handle UT. UT is tough with crap gear, easy with good gear, and quick and painless with elite gear. I would argue that taking a merc into UT is more costly, slower, and more dangerous. It can be done, but I don't see the benefit.

    I've used a merc wearing non-eth reaper's in uberland before and he tanked fine. As said above there's really very little point as he'll just get in the way.

    That pretty much sums it up, though depending on your version of crap gear, it should still be pretty painless when compared to other uberkilling builds since smite doesn't have an AR check.

    merc is waste of time if u r a uber smiter, u'll kill everything there with 0 problem. Why the hell need merc that die in 2 to 3 hit by meph the *** ?
