yes

druid gets a ton of strength factor to spell as well though. but energy will be more useful because you need mana to cast anyways, along with spell dmg

If it's a base/magic item use oil of renewal, if it's a unique item use 2 arcane crystals + any rune (or oil of enhancement, not rly sure)

Yes a bit, it won't have as many knives as your skill scorpion blade but it will get some more. Also the proc/skill sucks.

If you look at the SSSU Skull Cap, that proc will get multiple projectiles (granted it gets a flat bonus from the affix itself), but the proc is affected by +max knivs from MKV the same way that a paladin using

Is there any Mercenary guide for all of them? I was looking for one in Guide section and found only Act 5 merc and it 8 months old, so its not for 1.2 patch.
What I am looking for are some baseline tips. For example I read somewhere, that Act 2 merc got max %dmg reduction without items, is it true?
Is it worth to increase max resists for mercs overall? Thank you
