That's right, I use reaper's. For the armor I use an eth fortitude 2000def, that combined with defiance give me 16,000 def which is good I guess.itsPizzarific said:im guessing your weapon is reapers. if you're willing to spend it, and already have weapon life leech, dream is a great merc helm. the ctc confuse is teh pwn. and.. the aura looks cool. ^^
only problem would be that the reapers/dream setup doesn't provide any +str, so you'll be stuck with a lower def armor.
yep right on. +2 skills and then a nice chance to cast many different kinds of crowd control curses (confuse, terror, mindblast) and bone fetish is teh pwn.Harleyquin said:Delirium has the +2 skills, magic find with level and the chance to cast curses that kick in when the merc is attacked. There's also the added fun factor of seeing a bone fetish every once in a while (I think).
Harleyquin said:If you're using an aura merc the +2 to skills increases the level of the aura, it's not as useful for the barbarian or rogue mercenary.
Decrepify and the crowd control curses do not stack, so if the merc is armed with Reaper's toll then delirium loses some of its effectiveness
Yeah, forgot about ll...itsPizzarific said:if you get infinity, you would need to use andys for ll or else your merc will get pwnt.
my typical merc set up is:
infinity/pride/insight (depending on char) polearm
andys socketed with 30 fire res/15 ias
eth fort sacred (need to level him up quite a bit to use this, str req is a bit high)
My eth reaper's 232ed 13ll cost me only an ist.skihard said:My Freeze merc is Pretty darn happy with this setup.
Eth Veil of Steel
Eth Steel Carapace
Eth 319% Bone Hew
Best I can do for him without the ability to afford Rune words. Best part is itâ€™s all self found, Yeah Me
crown of thieves is another great cheap one. tals mask as well, and gaze's arent too expensive now. heck low andy's aren't worth much anymore either. =oSherlock said:My Defiance Merc using Eth Obedience Thresher and Eth Gloom Laquered Plate ! Since none of these things have LL, I upgraded Undead Crown to exceptional version for him to raise defence, and it has 5 LL, and its quite enough ! Its actualy quite nice helm !
