Mercenary Building

Hi all.

How are you all building the mercenary class? I am currently mono-red mana:
Burning Hands
Channel Fire
Mineral Strike
Searing Strike

But completely lost as to what weapon/armor I should go for…or if I should commit to a different mana color even. I have considered green so I could more easily swap between Shaman and Merc. Hard for me to plan too far when I don’t think I even know all the spells possible for mercenary.

So, how is your build looking?

Seeing as how the Merc doesn’t seem to be better at any one thing than another class at this point except farming gold, I just decked him/her out with highest gear to get story. It will be a nice addition to more passive players who don’t cap gold every day since mid level dungeon runs will likely give a ton of gold with ultimate+spells

I personally think mercenary is built for crit due to crit stacking of finding weakness ( finding weakness is ridiculous cheap at only 80 mana) and the merc stacking greed. Thus the warlord full 6 piece set compliments it greatly. 100 percent crit rate with 1000% crit damage is doable. Currently running 2 green and 2 red, physical crit build focusing on crit and skull generation.
