So I made a wind druid and traded for some gear and I was originally planning on using insight on my merc but decided reaper's would be better so that decrep could break some physical immunes and also slow act bosses...
so he's using:
reaper's toll 231ed 15ll
None of them are socketed right now... I'm going to stick an Um in the shaftstop soon as I get one or another pul to cube up I think, cause it doesn't really get much better than upped shaftstop for a merc armor I dont think and I got a good roll... but I dont know what to socket in the other too
The reaper's has 15% LL already, no it seems like an Amn might be overkill, but thats obviously an option. The only other option is really shael, since even if I had a ber I wouldn't waste it like that etc.... unless people have any better ideas?
So amn or shael in reaper's and any ideas for the gface? Not going to put an um in it, isn't worth it imo
edit: oh I also have an 8ll vgaze i could use instead of the gface, but gface seemed like a better option for the CB and DS, especially since reaper's has so much LL already... any opinions on that?
I'm not really sure about breakpoints for merc, but if a sheal would give him faster attack speed I would probably use one in the reaper's because it already have such high leech.
Also more leech might be nice but I'm not sure how much more effective it would be. If you dont use Holy freeze merc perhaps a rare juwel with cold damage + other good mods might be good for better crowd control.
the german attack speed calculator says a shael will make my merc attack at 7 frames instead of 7.5.... I dont really understand the concept of half a frame, nothing else works like that except supposedly these merc attacks so I'm not even sure how accurate all that is.
my merc is lvl 88 with a non-eth Reapers, a duriel's shell (dope resists) and a grand crown of thieves. He has 30% Life leech, lawl. He hasn't died on me, once, ever. (unless maidened, but I don't count that)
