I find it hard to keep my mercs alive without spamming pots on them so I always make a holy crafted sword so they have redemption aura and fill it with 4 gems for the kind of damage they do, in this case sapphires. With this he'll do crazy damage.

Topaz crafted gloves are pretty awesome, gives +cold skill damage and -enemy cold res.

I got 2 frost rings from the elemental set and saracen's chance as amy. Gona craft a amethyst belt for fcr and I got a amethyst crafted shield with gems in it for res and absorb.

Amethyst crafted boots are pretty sweet too.
Dont have a good head and chest for my merc but that kinda depends what you got I guess. But a topaz crafted chest is always pretty sweet for casters.

There are ofc better gear, like naj set is pretty sweet, but I dont have that so I went with this and he kinda rapes everything anyway.

+3 Blizzard (Sorceress Only) skills will NOT effect your a3 merc. Only +1 All Skills.

The set up verb said works really well. But, mine has full naj (4 uber saphs in staff, 3 cold facets in helm, res jewels in armor), topaz craft gloves, cast craft boots, res rings, zak amulet, trip res/30fhr belt. 98% pierce, several +1 skills, max res, best fcr bp, decent fhr.

Since I'm teeth, he doesn't have a problem staying alive until certain bosses.
On other a3 mercs, I like to throw skulls in their helm/armor and the regen does a good job keeping them alive

Will, in 1.10 +skills(class only) affect oskills and mercs skills.
+1 to sorcs skills or +1 to cold tree(sorcs only) won't affect mercs.

OOPS. Must not be that way in later versions, or I was just misinformed

IMO get a pz n bone merc and equip him with - magic Resistance, it breaks tons of immunities of trast (even in hell) and the teeth/bonespear/spirit is the best at killing trash. I dont recall seeing a "magic and pz immune" boss, however others swear on it.

Get a cold merc when u have a time staff, its super IMBA for a merc (10 skills -60 res +1 to natura res, shit ton fcr ect ect) and turns ur cold merc into a boss killer. - this is for pz immune bosses.

btw PmP, you cant break a immunity simply by having alot of -enemy res on your gear, you can only break resistances with auras and curses http://blue.arimyth.com/ read the bottom part on boss resists.
Though the PnB merc aura can break immunitys but probably only poison no idea about magic.

Decided to go with a lightning merc because most of the immunes I run into are cold poison and I have a meteor sorc to deal with poison immune bosses. Gonna go with Naj's set with the staff full of the Topazs.
