you do realize that the mf on your merc only works if he is the one killing stuff?

if your char kills stuff: only the mf on char kicks in

if merc kills stuff: merc mf + mf on char kicks in


and its "enhanced weapon damage / armor" and not "enchanted" (just a little typo)


also nice guide, thx for your work.


Can anyone verify this?

gotta agree with that one! it was funny and there were couple of grammar mistakes and misspellings here and there but they could be easily fixed.


Didnt knew most of the bugs about the merc I have heard about something similar but didn't believed it because it's so weird... blizzard really has some spaghetti code behind that engine.....
