What Merc and Weapon for Bonemancer

What would be better for my Bone Necro, Boneshade or Hoto? Also what would be the better merc NM Defiance or Holy Freeze?

It really depends on weapon, if you want better damage, go for boneshade. For fcr and resist, Hoto is your choice.
And assuming you use bone armor, I think you won't need that much defence, so I will go for holy freeze for the slow effects/

So should I go with a Boneshade and add Um to it?

Uhh Um runes don't add +15 res if socketed in a weapon. Unless there's some funky reason you want 25% Open Wounds on your nec, I don't recommend it.

I advise HoTo > Boneshade. The fcr, res, dex, all too useful imo.

Holy Freeze.

HAHAHA oops I was having a dumb moment...forgot Um rune doesn't add res to the wand. Thank you for clarifying that.

Maybe I'm just a little slow, but why on earth would someone use Boneshade instead of "White"? Cheaper, better +skills, better secondary stats... the only drawback is 5% less FCR.

I use a Holy Freeze merc for my bone necro. Makes it ridiculously easy for me to impale monsters with my bone spear.

well i reckon hoto, i use hoto and it works fine.
white can be good but finding the right wand is the hard bit lol.
with a merc, go for a holy freeze and use these items

Insight (for the almost infinite mana)
dream (then merc has holy freeze and shock and does extra damage)
archon plate fort (for the damage)
OR
bramble(for thorns aura)

GOOD LUCK BRO

Dream is probably wasted on a merc. A single dream would only add 324.5 damage per hit and 54.5 ping damage. That's extremely weak, in the grand scheme of things, especially given the runes that it costs.

My current Merc gear is Obedience, Duress and near perfect Crown of thieves. Obedience does High dmg plus it has 40% crushing blow. Duress has great resistances plus crushing blow. And the crown of thieves leeches so much life, I rarely have to heal.
