What type of damage do those orbs even deal?

Should I get a tanking merc? I don't know if they're worth my time because they may die equally fast, for all I know.

They deal elemental damage respective to their color (red = fire, blue = cold, yellow = lightning, green = poison).

Teganze is all about that dodgeball skill, and/or getting high maxres (85%+).

So, are mercs worth it? With lots of bloodstones etc. to max out their resistances?

If you can get the merc tanky enough(act 2 is a good meatshield, act 5 aswell but need some more gear to be as tanky(but you get a aoe stun)) to not get one-shot by a group of balls, then sure. I've actually never really tried to use a merc in Teganze, but the only way a merc really dies is if he gets one-shot, since they regen health back so fast.

in a hand. Helps if you oil of conjuration the dreamflange and socket it with Ghals. Even w/ just the one sword they died in either one or 2 hits.
You can still farm Teganze without the boots, but they make it easier. I have also been consistently clearing lvl 10 labs with the boots so I think it’s worth the effort digging up a Sha’ad rune

Now that I lucked out with a 3/3
Natasha’s Legacy
, I dropped the Dreamflange.

After a little while you’ll start to get really good at dodging their attacks anyway. Zig zag your way through the level, and refine your movement by holding down shift (or w/e keybind you use for “stand still”).

Any reason that you recommend equipping nats legacy instead of deception armor for a high budget build? I guess it grants more spd and also allows you to put the most of stat points into vit so that u can reach 30k+ hp without losing dps.

with that? From what I understand, WC deals magic and physical damage. Does Moonwrap's 20% spell damage affect that?

Spell damage does incluse Physical/Magical spell damage, yes.

So I did a little test: I put 6 x Perfect Diamond in a sword for +18% spell damage. Then I unsocketed them and put 6 x Hel for +18% physical/magic spell damage. The numbers on WC were exactly the same.

Does that mean I can stop worrying if an item increases SD instead of PMSD? Because it looks like WC is pretty much the only offensive skill in this build.

yes those are the exact same in terms of scaling the damage of warcry, The reason to use runes though instead of p diamonds is for runemaster ultimate.

Right. Forgot about that.
