Watch tv show while teleporting surrounded by wall of minions, A1 merc owns everything. You are completely immortal and don't need pay attention to the screen, because minions absorb all hits.
Aside from runes/essences you get some decent su drop as side effect of having 500mf that has nearly no impact on power of your build.
I have no idea what you slap on an A1 merc here, just standard dex scaling gear and go with a ranger?
Anyway, for the bow dudu discussion, bow druid's pretty easy to gear out; intimidating craft bow with jah runes (bless with inti/creepy as you will), focus the rest of the gear on breakpoints and upping strength/fire pierce for nova shot.
MO for resists/defenses, then weapon damage as needed. Ber/Tir craft jewels for leech/mf as needed, to flavor to get sustain on spore shot. All stat points to str, but invest a few into dex for AR as well.
SMAX Nova Shot, Acid Fiends, Lifeshield
39-40 points in Elfin Weapons (big dick 1000% WDM)
4 points in Symbiosis
4 points in Mythal
1 point in Faerie Fire
Rest in Elvensong/Poison Flash for more avoid or beefier fiends.
Spore shot is your leech skill as it actually can leech and nova gives it more splits. Nova is general clearing skill.
Hawk Helm (Sacred)
Defense: (1988 - 2712) to (2112 - 2880)

is nice for bossing later.
Anyways, Teganze farm: Blink near crowds with fatty fiend tanks, nova shotgun down mobs, laugh at even the fire resists dying in a few vollies. Spore shot for the bigger crowds and leech.
Sumodin's probably the only other "ez speed farmer" that outpaces this due to more blinks.
