Very interesting one, specially that Taunt on strike.I do agree that auras would be important for the other mercenaries, or else Act II ones should remain the default choice.
A godsend for SSF players like me who want to try out A5 mercs in the new patch. All we need is more viable aura RWs now!
Pretty solid budget A5 merc weapon that's for sure. As someone who loves FA Bowa, I can already see myself gearing up thicc barb merc. I just wish it had Demons bonus % for Chaos farms.And yes yes, I know, FA is pretty solid CC as it is. But w/o Forti, A2 still feels like paper at times, unless you get solid eth Thresher for IAS and some FHR gear I suppose. But like I said, budget.
honestly pretty sick dps output for such a budget runeword.Those are runes I personally don't even consider picking up because of stash space issues.Either way quite decent for an act 5 Merc
Mh not convinced at all on its merc usefulness. This runeword seems like the equivalent of obedience for swords. And just like obedience, it will suck besides those juicy looking stats. 20 ias on a CB is awfully slow, even with treachery and a 35ias andyface you will more often than not have to protect your merc instead of having him protect you, IF you plan on using that A5 Merc as a meatwall. The low attackrate just doesnt line up with that taunt proc. However, for budget barbarians, this RW is flatout insane for its cost. Will very likely beat an average Oath on everything thats not named Whirlwind and brings a good amount of utility. Thats a huge deal, since one of the main arguements against playing a barb early during the season is that youre either super lucky, or stuck to being a bo b*tch for a long long time. With this avaiable, all you have to do is leech some hellcows until your cb drops and youre good to go.
Lol no, Oath is way better cause of indestructible so its done in eth weapons...
