I was wondering like can all mercs using basically any types of gear now? like a2 mercs can use shields? so can they use swords too?

Also for a bone nec what would be the best merc. im using a a2 norm offensive merc, but would a3 be better?

Bone Necro's clear trash and have recastable tanks so Act 2 probably isn't the best bet. A3 Cold even with the nerfs are probably the strongest boss killers if you wanna run some of the sub bosses etc with a really well geared merc.

A1 Mercs can use Xbox and Bows
A2 Mercs Javs & Shield or Spears.
A3 Staves Daggers Swords Shields
A5 Sword Axes Shield Primal Helms

has anyone tried out the act3 fire merc? I used one on my paladin last season and he cast meteor like crazy all the time. And he should be casting it even more now that he has less chance of using firestorm.

My Pally Heimdall had a Meteor Time Merc. It was bad on bosses. He'd cast meteor from fs range... <_< Testing new PnB merc... a bit more effective at trash than light merc.
