Wow lots of Qs Okay, let my ignorance shine forth. I have opted to create the runic items necessary for Beast/Infinity(unecided on which one), Bramble, and Call to Arms. Now I planned on making the CTA on an item for a simple switch to the alt weapon set (derga) and putting Bramble onto the best(def) armor my lvl90 merc can equip(haven't checked that yet). Now, 2 Questions: How can I get Beast onto my merc's weapon? With a poleaxe? On the site in the rune section it says: "Axes, Hammers & Scepters only." So what weapon would this incorporate into the act 2 merc weapon's equipability? Also, would fantacism be better v conviction on the Infinity weapon? I have carefully read on both of them and understand them insofar as a scholarly pursuit can afford, but am interested in real-life advice from people who have used them both in Uber situations. Also, is there any way I can increase the odds of a higher lvl Thorns aura on my Bramble, or is it purely (and sadly) random? Thankee for answering my questions lol. This way i will have Might, Fanatacism, and Thorns on my minions along with bo and whatnot. Oh, and since I'm already asking dumb questions, is there any way (other than mf) I can increase the odds of recieving a Key from one of the 3 droppers? And what is "Splendor"; I checked the Runewords section and didn't see it. Is it incognito, like "Spirit"? One more random Q...how much str would be deducted for the req on a piece of armor if it is ethereal? I ask so I know what armor to make for my merc's Bramble. Finally, which has a better damage output: mastered F.Golem, or putting those points into skellie mage and just going with a 1-point gumby? I know these are many questions...lol...but when they rae all answered, I should have a pretty good idea which direction to take with my necro. Thank you all!
