Holy Freeze is the popular option. He tanks and he slows down the enemy. But my HF merc dies too quickly because I didn't level up together with him.

Another probably with HF merc is that you never know when the HF aura will be turned on. It's one of Blizz's industrial secrects besides the Diablo 3 release date.

I was suprised. I used a Prayer merc with my HC summoner a while back. He leveled up with me and was INCREDABLE. He saved my a** more times than I can remember. At higher levels, Prayer is awesome for spellcasters. It's very underrated.

iv personally never used prayer, i use to use holy freeze alot, but a kelpie snare and a might merc is so much better, it slows a hel of a lot and does alot of dmg...im actually remaking my bone necro right now and another reason im picking might is for those magic immunes...
physical dmg is g00d ~

Well, I had been using him through Normal in leu of a Might merc. It was kinda sad letting him go, though...he was like family to me (kinda.)

My bonenecro can handle any kind of monster thrown at him, except magic immunes. So for those, I have a might merc with a big polearm.

Yes, I agree. Prayer is for summoners, and you're a bone necro, so dont go prayer. Holy Freeze mercs can work, and work well, but your decrep curse slows all the enemies way down anyway (clay golem even more), so that's not too big of a deal.

Might is most useful, because as many pointed out, it can kill those pesky magic immunes. I only once ran into a magic/physical immune unique monster that I recall. It was with my barb too, so that's why I recall it.... zerk didn't work lol.
