Upp'ed Shaftstop vs Stone for Hammerdin Insight Prayer Merc at Hellforge Right now my Prayer merc wears Andy's, Insight Thresher and Upped Eth GA. The armor is the most overrated piece of s*** and my merc likes to die a lot. He just got wasted by a conviction mob which really ticked me off. So I want to change to either Stone or Shaftstop. They both give high defense, Stone with lots of defense and some resists which ends up 75 res all. Shaftstop gives a life bonus and a massive 30 DR. Which do you guys think is better for Hellforge? My hammerdin is a non tele 125 FCR hammerdin. I use him to do hellforge for my mules. A nice hammer field generally keeps Hephasto in stunlock, but of course my merc needs to survive. Prayer greatly enhances my survival rate so I'm loathe to change to another aura. (prove me wrong though). Shako Mara Hoto Viper Spirit Sacred Targe Frostburns Arach's BK + Raven Treks Pally torch. 10k hammers. No CTA. My Stone base: eth 4 socket Wire fleece, eth bug 1072 defense.
