Mercenary Guide


Either Offensive or Defensive Mercenary in Act II is good enough. Your Mercenary only needs to have enough defense to sustain the monsters while you fight them with War Cry, so Fortitude is a no-brainer pick for the armor. For Helm, the Tarnhelm is a great pick (and cheap)

Gameplay and Tip

Gameplay Guide & Tips
For this build, it is mostly used as an alternative build so players can get their hands on weapons and runes quicker, so the best option to play this build is to pick the right route for farming.
One of the most common path for this build is Act III last area.
Travincal Waypoint > Durance of Hate Level 1. This is to lure the Travincal members and group them up at the previous area. As soon as you get back to Travincal, perform War Cry to stun the monsters and let your Mercenary finish them. Each run can net you around 300k – 1 million gold depend on your current gear.
