Since we don't have a mercenary section in our Strategy Guide, I've decided to try to pull together as much information on mercenaries as I can find. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

__________________________________________________________________________

ACT 1 - ROGUE

Stats/Level

Life - 8 (Life fully regenerates in 41 seconds)
Strength - 1
Dexterity - 2
Defense - 6.5
Resistances - 2

Skills
NOTE: Skill Level = (10/32) * Merc Level

Inner Sight - No skill cap, but hire Act 1 Rogues in Normal to get a higher level Inner Sight (29 N, 28 NM, 27 Hell).

One of the following bow skills:
Fire Arrow - No skill cap, but hire Act 1 Rogues in Normal to get a higher level Fire Arrow (29 N, 28 NM, 27 Hell).
Ice Arrow - No skill cap, but hire Act 1 Rogues in Normal to get a higher level Cold Arrow (29 N, 28 NM, 27 Hell).

Equipment - I don't like spending a fortune on Mercenary gear.
NOTES: Ethreal gear is better for mercenaries. Uses bows (no crossbows); Amazon-only items can't be used by Act 1 Rogues.

Weapons
Faith - Best bow available.
Breath of the Dying - You should be able to find a few of these floating around on Non-Ladder for pretty cheap.
Ice - Holy Freeze and Chance to Cast Frost Nova will keep enemies at bay.
Edge - If you are a character with minions, Necro/Druid, then this bow could come in handy with the Thorns aura.
Windforce - Graet high damage bow, cheaper than Faith.
Witchwild String - Amplify Damage is great if you are a melee character. Two sockets for Amns, Shaels, and IAS/Resist Jewels.

My Suggestion
Harmony - Great easy-to-make bow with Vigor and a lot of elemental damage.

Armor (Get max resists)
Fortitude - Damage and Resists.
Chains of Honor - Skills and Resists.
Bramble - Thorns is great if you are melee or have minions.
160/60 Lifer - Damage, speed, and life.

My Suggestion
Smoke - Cheap +50 Resist All.
Treachery - Cheap, IAS, FHR, Fade, and Venom.

Helmets
Delirium - Great crowd control; downside is that it overrides other curses (Amp/Life Tap).
Vampgaze - Life leech, DR, and chills targets.
120/45 Lifer - Damage, speed, and life.
Crown of Thieves - Cheap and high life leech.

My Suggestion
Stealskull - Cheap and effective. Life leech, FHR, and IAS.
Tal-Rasha's - Cheap, High Life Leech, and Resists.

ACT 2 - DESERT WARRIOR

Stats/Level

Life - 10 (Life fully regenerates in 41 seconds)
Strength - 1.5
Dexterity - 1.5
Defense - 9.5
Resistances - 2

Skills
NOTE: Skill/Aura Level = (10/32) * Merc Level

Jab - 2 hits. The lower the difficulty when hired, the higher possible Jab level because of skill caps.

One of the following auras:
Prayer (Normal/Hell) - Hire from Normal because the aura level cap (18) is 2 levels higher than Hell-hired Mercenaries.
Blessed Aim (Normal/Hell) - Hire from Normal because the aura level cap (18) is 3 levels higher than Hell-hired Mercenaries.
Defiance (Normal/Hell) - Hire from Normal because the aura level cap (18) is 2 levels higher than Hell-hired Mercenaries.
Thorns (Nightmare) - Aura level cap of 17.
Might (Nightmare) - No aura level cap on Might.
Holy Freeze (Nightmare) - Aura level cap of 17.

Equipment - I don't like spending a fortune on Mercenary gear.
NOTES: Ethreal gear is better for mercenaries. Javelins (will not be thrown), Spears or Polearms.

Weapons
Infinity - 40% Crushing Blow and Conviction aura; Great for elemental based characters.
Doom - High damage; Use on a merc that doesn't use Holy Freeze.
Upped Hone Sundan - 40% Crushing Blow and 3 sockets for Amns.
Bonehew - Easy-to-get, High damage and 2 sockets for Amns.
The Reaper's Toll - Good damage, Decripify, and High Life Leech.
Tomb Reaver - High damage, Speed, Resists, and 1-3 Sockets for Amns.

My Suggestion
Insight - Probably the most widely used merc weapon b/c of its cheap price, decent damage, and Meditation aura. Great for casters.
Bonehew - Easy-to-get, High damage and 2 sockets for Amns.

Armor (Get max resists)
Fortitude - Damage and Resists.
Chains of Honor - Skills and Resists.
Bramble - Thorns is great if you are melee or have minions.
160/60 Lifer - Damage and speed.
Duress - FHR, %ED, CB, and Resists.
Shaftstop - Life and 30% DR.

My Suggestion
Smoke - Cheap +50 Resist All.
Treachery - Cheap, IAS, FHR, Fade, and Venom.

Helmets
Delirium - Great crowd control; downside is that it overrides other curses (Amp/Life Tap).
Vampgaze - Life leech, 20% DR, and chills targets.
Crown of Thieves - Cheap and high life leech.

My Suggestion
Tal-Rasha's - Cheap, High Life Leech, and Resists.

How to Glitch an Iron Wolf

The idea is to get huge Holy Shock and Holy Fire damage by exploiting a bug in the game.
NOTE: The following can be done with any mercenary, but only the Act 3 Iron Wolf can glitch both Holy Shock and Holy Fire simultaneously.

You will need the following gear:
Hand of Justice Sword - Level 16 Holy Fire.
Dragon Armor - Level 14 Holy Fire.
Dream Shield - Level 15 Holy Shock.
Dream Helmet - Level 15 Holy Shock.

Steps to Glitching:
- Equip all of the above equipment.
- Unequip and re-equip one of your Dreams a lot of times (75+).
- Unequip and re-equip either Hand of Justice or Dragon a lot of times (75+).
- Now you should have huge pulse damage that will kill just about anything (excluding Fire + Lightning Immunes).
- If your mercenary dies or you happen to take off both Dreams or Hand of Justice and Dragon, which will completely remove one of your auras, then the damage gained from that aura will be lost and you will have to start over glitching that aura.
- You also have to re-do the previous steps during each new game.

ACT 5 - BARBARIAN

Stats/Level

Life - 12 (Life fully regenerates in 16.4 seconds)
Strength - 2
Dexterity - 1.5
Defense - 7.5
Resistances - 2 (Built-in +70% poison resistance)

Skills
NOTE: Normal attack has 2 hits. Act 5 Barbarians have a 5% chance of Critical Strike.

Bash - Maxes out at Level 20 on Merc Level 75.
Stun - Maxes out at Level 16 on Merc Level 75.

Equipment - I don't like spending a fortune on Mercenary gear.
NOTES: Ethreal gear is better for mercenaries. Two-Handed Sword or One-Handed Sword without Shield; Barbarian-only items can be used by Act 5 Barbarians. Can't Dual-Wield.

Weapons
Last Wish - Possibly the best Act 5 Merc Weapon; High damage, Might aura, High Crushing Blow, Fade, and Life Tap.
Breath of the Dying - Great all around melee weapon.
Grief - High damage and speed.
The Grandfather - High damage.
Silence - Good damage, Skills, Resists.
Death - High damage, 50% Crushing Blow, Deadly Strike, and Glacial Spike on Attack keeps enemies frozen.

My Suggestion
Cresent Moon - Cheap; Decent damage and Static.
Cruel (of Quickness if you're lucky) - Easy to buy from merchants.

Armor (Get max resists)
Fortitude - Damage and Resists.
Chains of Honor - Skills and Resists.
Bramble - Thorns is great if you are melee or have minions.
160/60 Lifer - Damage and speed.
Duress - FHR, %ED, CB, and Resists.
Shaftstop - Life and 30% DR.

My Suggestion
Smoke - Cheap +50 Resist All.
Treachery - Cheap, IAS, FHR, Fade, and Venom.

Helmets
Delirium - Great crowd control; downside is that it overrides other curses (Amp/Life Tap).
Vampgaze - Life leech, DR, and chills targets.
Crown of Thieves - Cheap and high life leech.
Tal-Rasha's - Cheap, High Life Leech, and Resists.

My Suggestion
Arreat's Face - Best barbarian helmet; Skills, Stats, FHR, and Resists.

you have shield as spirit for a3 mercs, but unless you have gear with +str they can't use monarchs, and a3 mercs can't use Auric (pally) shields.

Other than that, good job.

Excellent work man..

I'd agree with GTA about the Glitch section - about A3 mercs... I see alot of questions about that running around lately... It'd be nice to have a way to finally shut those down and point them to a thread.

Great work- I don't have adjectives enough for this.

thossr,

Good point. I will suggest some more +Str gear for Act 3 Merc if using Spirit.

Act 3 Merc's can't use pally shields, I've tried that.

GTA,

I got to get up early tomorrow :biggrin:

If you don't mind getting up that info, that would be great. Send links via PM. Thanks.

What it does?
Gives your mercenary an extra powerful aura attack

How do you do it?
1) Equip your merc with with 2 items that give the same aura. ie: 1 HoJ + 1 Dragon on an A1 Merc, or 2 Dreams on an A3 merc.
2) Rapidly remove/equip one of the aura giving items. The aura's damage will increase. You must do this MANY times for it to be effective. (50++)
3) You must repeat this for every new game you join, and every time your merc dies.

Need more detailed?

GTA,

That's good enough, thanks.

Thossr,

I was wondering if you really thought they could use pally shields.

pfft, you wish you had a jah to waste faglet.

anyways, you know you can have bug mercs on more than just a3 although a3 are the only ones who are able to glitch two auras at once.

Also you might add which merc would be the best for the more popular of builds, such as how an insight is good for wind druids/necromancers since they burn mana so quickly

Edit: I really thought that until a week or so ago, when i almost wasted that jah rune :)

Double edit: that was @ matt

thossr,

Good idea, I'll add a list of character builds that work well with each merc.

Well a few things i honestly stopped reading about half way down once i got done with iron wofl merc section because i wanted to suggest teh gmerc section, but thats already taken care of. Something i would like to suggest is a few items that could be used and may have been suggested but im tiredi got no sleep due to staying up late and getting up early to help my family. few things
Bone visage helms. Low req but have 30 to str and can have two os yougo from there. Great for those insights or whatever that need alot of str.
Bone hew a great high dmg Polearm serioously can make ure dmg gg if eth. only for a3 merc.
and i also suggest showing a few other builds for mercs like a build for casters a build for meelee a few builds that come to mind are like the insight fort and evampgaze combo or the gmerc combo or a combo with infininty so ppl know what items to match things up with.
