Anybody have a preference or experience they'd like to share? I'm open to changing my merc and starting from scratch if need be

For the moment, I went with PmP's advice and got myself a magic merc from act 3.
Currently level 92 but is clearing up to act 2 pretty well in hell. Dies almost instantly in act 4 and 5. End gear I'm thinking:

elemental set
immortal flesh
soul drainers
crafted boots
griffons
wizspike
spirit ward shield
glassgare armor

i believe resist will be covered with the fade from the shield
and of course since i'm a healer, he will probably never die.

If you maxed Conviction (like most Healers should), you really can't beat Act 3 Cold or Lightning. Lightning is overall better for trash, but A3 with Blizz can take down sub-bosses easily and contributes great damage to Champs/Uniques or other stronger mobs.

I've seen A1 geared for Fire damage instead of physical do well. You'd probably want to roll w/ a Faith Javelin (so you can still run Conviction) to get the most out of her though.
