View Full Version : need suggestion for merc upgrade
currently im using an act 2 might merc im a summon necro his gear is
148 def helm
corpse mourn armor
my runes are
now im on SP so only have the runes i find but i do have RWM so i can make any rune word just wondering if you guys know of anything i can make with these or if im close to something i could try to aim for.
A lot of people could offer suggestions, but check out the runeword lists & see which you actually like best. It's your charachter after all.
From the runes you got, you could make Honor, Strength or an Insight weapon. You seem to be pretty close to having the runes for Obedience as well (highly underrated merc weapon). You could also make a Peace armor & am close to making Treachery, which is not a bad merc armor either. The merc wearing Treachery looks "ethereal" when fade kicks in. Looks cool on a merc.
anything would be an upgrade over what you have now.
insight is about the cheapest, and in any etheral elite it should result in 600 to 1.3k damage. i just made one in a normal gp and it was 500 max damage.
for helm, any unique with leech, resists or dr is good. if you use the insight, you need leech. i like the vamp gaze, but the crown of thieves has higher life leech and defense.
for armor, there's not much you can do. in a pinch, i use twitcheroe. it also helps equip items the merc doesn't have stats for yet.
Depending on your level...I'd suggest you mf nm meph a bit and hope for a helm with some life leetch to drop to use on your merc to make him that much more effective...and prevent him from dying as well. Even a tal's helm which is easy enough to drop is good enough for your merc...and even helps with his resists to go along with a 10 life leetch.
For a weapon upgrade just give your merc a insight weapon to start with if your dead set on using a runeword weapon for him...and I'd suggest the runeword stone for his armor although the courspemourn is a good armor for a merc.
