Try normal baal runs for a while.

IF he cant handle it, Blood Runs might work, lastly if those two dont work do normal council.

I don't think you get decent experience beyond act 4 if you are under level 25. This applies to mercs as well. Travincal is a good spot. Once he hits level 25 he should be good to go anywhere.

As far as equip I'm usually looking for rare polearms in act 1 worth bringing to act 2 mercdom (life leech is a real plus). If you're going untwinked and have no stuff for him, buy some basic stuff from a vendor, checking stats to make sure he can wear it. Then try gambling. Go for the weapon first. Remember, non class specific throwing spears (pilums and glaives) can be used by act 2 mercs also. Then armor, then helm (I look for defense, life, and resists).

Good luck!
 
At lvl 15 he'll level really slow against baal. act 3 or 4 would give better EXP until he can do cows ok, or just take him in a baal game at lvl 25.

Experience is more than numbers

thanks. i will try to lvl it in act 2 or act 3.
http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=551#Experience gives the experience stats until CLvl25, and right below it are the area levels. As a general rule stay five levels above your merc and level in the highest areas for crediting full experience. This means you should be no higher than 20 and doing tomb runs with as many people as possible until you reach 21 and your merc reaches 16, then start act three since Spider Forest is 21.
 
just a quick question i've been wondering.

do hell chaos runs work on your merc if you can keep him alive?

as for your merc now, i would do trav runs till you can norm cow and baal, as someone suggested.
