    Act 2 Merc Aura, what are they?

    A general question about Act 2 mercs. I know that we have three seperate levels (norm, nm, and hell) where we can purchase mercs. I would like to know the difference between the mercs aura's from each level. I would also like to know what the differences are between the Offensive, Defensive, and Combat Mercs?

    While on the mercs question, what Act 2 merc would best suite the following chars/char builds.
    Sorceress -Cold Blizzard and Ice Blast with Lightening as back skill
    Javazon - Power Strike and Lightening Fury with Thunderstrokes
    Paladin - Hammerdin with CTA and Hoto
    Druid - Elemental Fire Bear

    Thanks for all the repsonses.

    1) Welcome to the forums!
    2) Double past = bad. You might want to edit one of them to nothing
    3) Ultimate Merc Guide V3.0

    From Arreat Summit:

    I uploaded the Hireling_Stats document on excel here.

    You really only have three choices.

    1. Holy Freeze
    2. Might
    3. Prayer

    Some people also like Defiance, but I don't really find it that necessary. I'd rather take Might on a Baba/Pally anyday. It's best if you just try them out with your own heroes and see which ones you like with which builds. Having someone tell you that Holy Freeze is the best for x build does nothing for you, go see for yourself what is best.

    Blessed Aim is also a solid possibility, allowing the character to almost completely ignore their attack rating.
