    Yeah, I might be able to help

    In my experience as a fury druid (One of my favorite types of chars for some reason) I've found the defiance aura act 2 guy most helpful. Although I am a thrifty player, usually playing with cheap stuff, I really find great use in enhanced defence.
    another good one is the might one aswell. the prayer one could be nice if you had low life. I never needed this because I got tons of life. (I'm a fan of Oak Sage lol)
    I hope this was informative, Although I could be of more help if I knew your situation. Char build, items, life, ext.

    Might or holy freeze. I do not see a use for defiance as the defence boost is not all the much when you consider that a wolf does not have any sort of defence boosting skill.

    I second that.
    Might is my personal favorite, always. This is because higher damage will result in wiping out monsters quicker (!)
    A fury druid usually has insane attackspeed, and also high damage (since many people use 2-handed weapons for them), and since might boosts damage by percentages, its very useful.
    If you need to slow down enemies around you, which is the main purpose of using HF mercs anyways, you could always use a reapers toll for the decrep triggering 33% of the time ;)

    There can only be one...the mighty Might mercenary. Lorven explains it quite well:)

    Would pride supply a chance to be uninteruptible attack for fury aswell as the damage increase ?

    Offensive Centric: Might

    Defensive/HC Centric: Holy Freeze

    I prefer defnsive since Crowd Control>Damage Output IMO.

    I run with the act 2 might aura mercenary. Just slap a Reapers Toll for the curse , Shaftstop and Life stealing helm on him and you are ready to rock.

    Why chose? I use might merc with Doom CA, then you have both might and holy freeze.:whistling:

    A Defiance one might actually work if you use Ribcracker - which gives you extra defense - and Fortitude, for the chilling armor bonus. The Defiance, Chilling Armor and Ribcracker's defense bonus can amount up to quite a lot of defense, actually. However Defense is usually skippable in PvM.

    My personal choice tends to be a Might Merc with Reaper's Toll, you just can't beat the crowd control and damage increase Decrep gives you. This guy is by far the most effective, IMO.

    For style points you can get a Rogue with Faith (really funny if you're using Tomb Reaver yourself, since 20% of your + Merc's kills will result in skeletons being spawn) or a Barb Merc with Lawbringer or Azurewrath.

    I'm quite sure holy freeze + reaper's toll would be the best, with might mrc + reaper's being second.

    Might helps with that ultimate damage wolf, but holy freeze just helps immensely on so many levels. It's a real dramatic effect, with might being for those who want to push the numbers to the limit, sacrificing practical effectiveness.

    Defieance + chilling armor + ribby is an awful combination, as they all give the same type of defence. Percentual.
