Hi


Was reading some older forum post and I would like to clarify some things:

1) Does poison and magic A3 merc aura reduces only poison resist or it reduces magic resist as well?

2) Will my poison skills do more damage because of his poison aura?

3) Alot of posts say that giving them items with +all skills work unlike +class skills, but does wand with +1 to Bspear work on them?

4) Do they benefit from weapon socketed with diamond gems, for -magic resist?

Hey there;

1+2) Yes, his "poison aura" reduces enemy poison resists, though it's not the aura itself, strangely, it only applies on the specific enemies that he hits with spells. I'm not sure about the magic res, but this will boost your poison damage somewhat I think; if nothing else, I'm sure it can break some weaker strong vs. monsters (the poison that the aura itself deploys is negligble and can be easily overwritten by any other source).

3) Any +allskill works on a3 merc, but no +skill with (class only). They do not count as any of the available classes.

4) Yeah, they sure do :] Give them as many as you can!

Also, there's something strange with the PnB merc, as unlike the others he only gets his last main skill (Bone Spirit) if you hire him in Hell. Take that into consideration if you plan to play with him.

Hi and thanks for answering

Just one more question regarding mercs (generally), how does gold find and magic find work with them?

If I have 100% and merc 0%, is our total 50% or...?

A merc's mf/gf is the total of your gear with theirs, so their mf/gf is better than yours. Now, if only you could teach an A5 merc to hork Leoric, imagine the gold piles...
