obedience is quite a good merc weapon to make but also using bonehew on merc is good as well :)
a good armour for merc is lionheart( hel lum fal)
these are resonably cheap to get hope this hlps

another nice item (not runeword though) is ariocs needle (hyperion spear)
it has, among pretty nice damage, also +(2-4) to all skills, which means your mercs aura will improve. This is very nice if it for instance is a might merc, and you are some heavy-damage-hitter, since you get the bonus as well.
(Eth if you are lucky to get one) +4skills ariocs is a great, not too expensive, choice :thumbsup:

Ya ive heard about insight but ive made my obediance and its the best weapon ive seen, 1.4k dmg my merc officially owns now......insight will be my backup :D
Don't forget about Insight's "hidden" damage boost - +1-6 to critical strike. But if you don't need the luxury of Meditate, Obedience is probably the best choice. :thumbsup:
