    Why not act 3 merc?

    i have an act 3 merc,cold damage,and i am very pleased with him.........he has more defense than a rogue,and hits faster.......arround 600-1000 dmg per bolt.......if u can tell me another good merc equipment.....i want a ranged merc that has elemental damage,since i have only phisycal(the buriza-do-kyanon i have inflicts also elemental,but i would like an elemental merc)

    The damage you see on the screen is not his elemental damage, but his physical damage. The elemental damage he does depends on his level. The higher his level, the higher his spell levels, and the more damage he does.

    For gear, equip him with FCR items, as it will help him cast his spells faster. Like Spirit sword, Spirit shield and Vipermagi.

    It may be verified with a friend, but that is still incorrect. The merc's LCS shows the melee damage he does, not the damage of his IceBlast and GlacialSpike.

    Go put a Vipermagi (+1 all skills) on him and look at the damage on his LCS. You will see that it does not change.

    How come you're using a Griffon's Eye on a Ice merc?

    Because he's using:
    With a perfect Spirit, a total of 90% FCR.

    Although I would sub the Griffon's with Nightwing's and the SS for a Spirit.

    Act 2 Merc, using :
    Reapers Toll
    Eth Fortitude AP
    Eth Vampire Gaze 'Ber'

    The decrepify from the RT will take away most of the physical immunities, and for the rest get a Shael'd Baranars' Star switch...
