What's better for Act II Merc I found these items: Steel Pillar (102-118) To (551-640) 25% Chance of Crushing Blow -20% Target Defense +25% Increased Attack Speed http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/elite/uspears.shtml Bone hew (103-117) To (536-609) Prevent Monster Heal 30% Increased Attack Speed 50% Chance To Cast Level 16 Bone Spear On Striking http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/elite/upolearms.shtml I still think it's Steel Pillar, but I want to know your opinions. I've got Steel Pillar on my Act II merc and the sonovagun kills faster than I do in Hell. I also have that unique balrog spear(http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/elite/ujavelins.shtml). I found them all doing Act I pits. It IS a good place. It dropped a unique shako as well. Anyways, which one? If anyone wants to trade, please pm me. Runes are what I'm looking for, but I'm not turning down any good trades. (non-ladder). US West.
