Description

Currently have a level 72 Sand merc with freeze aura. His weapon is a
Bonehew
with 2
Amn
runes in it. The question is, am I better off sticking with this or the 4 open socketed colossus volgue I have? If I go with the volgue, what runeword do I put in there? I don't have any high runes (
Lem
being my highest)so should I wait? Should I trade the volgue for better items/runes? He currently is using griswald's armor and
Helm
.

Any advice is appreciated!

Can be used to make Runewords:

Depends on your build a lot - Insight is great if you utilize mana a lot. You can also afford reaper's toll which is quite decent (may be purchased for
Lem
atm)

Duriel's Shell
,
Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest
/
Guillaume's Face
are all very affordable.

On my merc, I'm using
Griswold's Heart
socketed with +strength jewels so that he can use my
Eth
CV Obedience (edit: I mean Insight, got my RWs mixed up again...)

Also, a good runeword option for armor is Treachery.

Lastly, a decent super-budget
Helm
option that I found out works quite nicely is
Duskdeep
, especially if you up it to exceptional. Until any of these options are on your table, just equip whatever best rares you can find, but finding a 4os polearm to give him Insight should not be any problem at all.

Happy Hunting!

To counter mana issues the runeword Insight is a good midgame weapon for your
Colossus Voulge
.

Budget load:
Bonehew

Leviathan

Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest


Endgame for starters:
Obedience
Treachery
Crown of Thieves


Good endgame setup:
Infinity /
The Reaper's Toll
/
Tomb Reaver

Fortitude / Chains of Honor / Treachery
Andariel's Visage


The last setup depends on personal preferences.

The weapon depends on your class. The breakpoints for your hirelings attack speed are important. Ethereal items are better than normal ones.

Good luck and "May RNGesus smile upon you!"

For my trades I expect
Lem
as lowest rune (exception
Hel
).
Otherwise please offer
Perfect Gems
, keys or essences.

What word do you suggest if I don't use mana? I'm a straight summoner with bear and synergies maxed

Thanks! Right now I'm using
Griswold's Heart
and
Griswold's Valor
. I have
Duriel's Shell
and
Guillaume's Face
. Once I get leveled enough where the shell has more defense than heart, I'll switch them. I want Infinity in my Colossus Volgue, but that's a while away.

Am I better of with Reaper's Toll than
Bonehew
at the moment? I have the volgue for Infinity, and that's what I'm working towards, but that's forever away to get two

The Reaper's Toll
is for physical damage dealers. Infinity is for elemental damage dealers. It depends on your class and play style. More information is needed. A druid is listed in your profil.

A base for Infinity should be something that you will keep for a very long time: Ethereal
Great Poleaxe
or Ethereal (Giant)
Thresher
with 15% ED. You don't want to craft an expensive runeword in a
Colossus Voulge
.

Thanks! I'm straight damage dealing, so I'll look for a reaper's toll. The ethereal CV not worth the big runes? Am I better off getting rid of it then, or put Insight into it? Mana isn't an issue

I like the good old
Colossus Voulge
, but due to its slow attack speed, there is less chance of getting an effect like the Crushing Blow within a certain time frame. In addition, its Strength requirements are very high. (see "ayrie"'s comment in
Colossus Voulge
)

I wouldn't use it for endgame gear. It's my personal opinion.

For my trades I expect
Lem
as lowest rune (exception
Hel
).

And my a2 mercs (sand) all benefited heavily from the Treachery runewords. 45% increased attack speed and
Fade
are just massive for this "budget" armor.
Find in addition a
Tal Rasha
helmet, people give these away for free partially. It is a 10% life leach.
You can also look out for a
Vampire Gaze
alternatively.

What your merc usually looks for:
Speed increase ( Treachery)
Damage reduction (
Vampire Gaze
)
Life leaching (various as mentioned)

Don't bother too much with an armor for him. If you have access to hell games, stroll around cow runs and look for 3 open socket armors.
