a5 merc


Thanks. Any reason why a5 Merc is particularly effective with a cold/lightning sorc?

I was wondering whether A1 merc would complement since we have ice elementals as tanks but lack physical damage for cold/lightning immunes.

he can tank and buff for you, there's no immunes in median.

Is this also the case for other stats (such as, say enhanced weapon damage), as in, is there a general upper limit of 200 for stats from mystic orbs ?

Still looking for an answer, thx.

Those two are the only intended ones I think. There is a limit on how much mana an item can give, but that is an engine bug and the value is high enough that only endgame mana-sorcs have to worry about it. Forgot the exact value though. I am not aware of any other stat caps on items.

edit:
200% enhanced damage/defence (ed) is not a mystic orb limitation, but a general item limitation. No item can have above 200% ed except for runewords (which are technically speaking two items in one):

Runewords can go above 200% ed when you apply the mystic orbs before inserting the rune into the item. You must pay special attention to the resulting level-requirements though.

edit2:
ah and items can go above 200%ed by inserting jah/xis runes or perfect skulls. This works because the socketables also count as "extra items within the item" and aren't part of the item itself (as opposed to mystic orbs).

Which class/build is the best for the hardest end-game rifts and dungeons? I'm guessing some type of paladin build?
