    Be warned though that you generally need maybe 100 attempts for a decent ammy (at least in my experience, although I tend to have extremely bad luck). With the logistics of cratfing being what they are, I've never bothered to mass craft; I just let the ingredients accumulate and then craft once I have a full mule of crafting stuff.

    Thanks for the heads up, yeah I'm not planning on crafting as a source to getting rich, but my wealth has reached a point where I can afford to do some crafting without it hurting my in-game economy.

    In my experience crafting is a lot of fun.

    Then you turn up buying a 80 craft pack for 2hr and after 30 crafts your like... never mind this crap is boring.

    Happened to me. Didnt look back ever. I just save cash for those people that manage to get very lucky.

    I craft as I get the materials. I still haven't gotten anything truly amazing from crafting, but I have gotten things worth 3-5 HR several times.

    Screw DPS mercs. I want a tanking merc.

    Guys, what exactly is it that ****s up your merc @ travincial?

    It can't be the hydras, my merc does only take little damage from them.

    Is it the other spell (red lightning) that council attacks with that ****s him up?

    Also whats the best tanking gear?

    My Pally's merc is Insight/Prayer and my Sorcs merc is Infinity/Defiance and this is not to be changed.

    I was thinking something like Um'ed Gaze and Um'ed Gladiators to maximize resists, DR and MDR.

    Re: Improvements

    Also, I'm thinking of a new build.

    Pure cold sorc for MFing.

    My idea:

    Put doom eth cryptic axe on defiance merc which gives him both freeze and defiance, which should help a ton with survivability.

    Also put deaths phanton as weapon (+20% cold damage) but it also gives huge fire resists which fixes the lack of fire resists from Spirit.


    Something like:

    Deaths phantom (ist)
    CoH
    Shako (ptopaz)
    Spirit
    Maras
    Arachds
    Sojs
    WT
    Chancies

    Merc:

    Doom eth cryptic axe
    Gladiators Bane
    Gaze
    Defiance/Holy freeze

    The only problem will be cold immunities, but I have my merc to kill those. Or, I could invest some points in Fireball to quickly take them down.

    Re: Improvements

    It's the hydras. They do a buttload of extra damage against minions as compared to what they do to players. If you really want to make him tank it, give him a guardian angel and a vamp gaze. Depending what weapon he's using you may need to um one of them, and put a 15 res all jewel in your weapon. Put a vex in the other for 95% fire resist.

    As I've told you before, I don't recommend such a setup. It is far better to use a DPS setup and occasionally feed him a full rejuv.

    Re: Improvements

    I just tried giving him Doom on, he is not dying as fast in travincial now. I suspect its the defiance boosting his defense and freeze slowing down councils attack/casting rate.

    Freeze does not slow down casting rate.

    Re: Improvements

    After reading some other threads on this board I am going to test out my merc with the following two setups:

    Guardian angel
    Veil of steel (I don't have Kiras)

    And

    eFort AP
    Vex'ed Gaze

    My idea here is to increase Mercs survivability. I don't want to be addicted to potions I hate it.

    Edit: I just tried with Veil of steel/Guardian angel to bring his FR to 90. he Still dies easily. o.O this is getting odd.
