Current items include a beast Z, shako, arachnid mesh, SoJs, homonculus, +2 summon skills +13 all res +24 str ammy, DS nigma, Marrowwalks, not sure what gloves to us but have magefist at the moment, torch (which I plan to trade for Nsum gcs to do ubers) 1 Nsum GC, some life SCs. Merc has infinity, Bramble, and Andys currently, though I've considered trading infinity for a pride (but no CB on pride :( ) Also considered trading the bramble for a great Efort, not sure how useful that thorns aura is...
Biggest question though is pride or infinity for my merc?
Note: This summoner is being built to take out ubers.
So would duress, infinity/obedience, andys be me best merc build? I like my merc to have LL though I recognize he'd kill stuff faster with guillaums.
LL from Andariel's Visage will be of negligible use against ubers as they are very resistant/immune to standard life leech. This means use Guillame's. Creatively use curses (alternate between lifetap/decrepify) to keep your mercinary and minions alive.
Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated! My necro using andys, obedience (traded my infinity and made an obedience in an Eth CA because it does so much more dmg), and duress got me 2 org sets without trouble. Now on to ubers.
So i took out ubers for the first time today with my necro....but had to res my merc like 10 times and I died twice. granted my CTA isn't very good but I think I need to get some more l life scs for my necro. Any good ways to make my merc more robust? I can afford to change to fort or whatever if needed, but right now he has duress, obedience, and guillaums. However I did successfully kill them, so there's that.
