    very high str on colossus voulge?

    hey, i'm making a light sorc so trying to make infinity for my mercenary. looking at eth CV's because they are fairly cheap as 4os ones are quite common.

    the only problem i've noticed with that plan is the 200 str req on an eth CV being ridiculously high. My lvl 85 merc on my bliz sorc only has 160 something strength, and i dont really want to lvl my merc to 97 on the light sorc just to use the weapon.

    my question for you guys is, what is the ideal gear for a merc (armor, helm) that will add a fair bit of strength but still make him capable of surviving in hell mode.

    maybe a few possible options with different costs would be good, letting me know what the possibilities are?

    if you can help i'd really appreciate it, thanks in advance :grin:

    Hands down : Andies helm. It can give a wopping 30 str when perf (25-30).
    You can also replace the CV with a CA which means both higher damage and very reduced reqs.

    Andies is cheap as **** a pul will certainly net you one with 30 or 29 str.
    Ral it for the extra fire res.

    Andy's helm has a level req of 83 at which the merc will meet the str req anyway IIRC. I suggest to wear Griswold's armor which adds 20 str and has 3 sockets which might be filled with pamethysts for further +str if necessary, else with IAS jewels (or a mix).

    Act 2 mercs don't 200 str until lvl 91 or lvl 93 (depending if they were hired in normal or nightmare).
