nope on both counts.

I may end up purchasing it soon, but I don't play at the moment. And no ... d2jsp is the furthest thing from legit lol. I'm talking about Baron's Bazaar. Not as strict as Amazon Basin yet we ban obvious dupes (40/15 jwl, 20/5 sc, pcomb 45life gcs, high runes ... )

However we cube up our high runes from Gul Runes. Labor intensive but our s**t doesn't disappear after a rust storm. We get the good gears fully legit :)

It's a MF Summon Necro, it's kinda of fun and boring at the same time since I'm not used to letting my summons and merc do all the work but I can MF in Hell pretty decent without getting k!lled, my summons and merc are straight tanks!

My gear so far:
Helm: Um'd Shako
Amulet: Mara's Kaleidoscope
Weapon: Hoto (Heart of the Oak)
Armor: Enigma
Shield: 1 soc Homoculous (I'm stll debating on what to put in it)
Gloves: Chance Gloves
Left Ring: Stone of Jordan
Belt: Goldwrap
Right Ring: Nagel Ring
Boots: War Traveler

My gear for my merc:
Helm: Andariel's Visage
Weapon: Infinty
Armor: Bramble

I have my keyboard setup like this:
Q: Teleport
W: Amplify Damage (I dunno whether to use AD or Decrepify)
E: Dim Vision
R: Corse Explosion

My belt is setup like:
1: Full Rejuvenation
2: Full Rejuvenation
3: Super/Greater Healing Potion
4: Super/Greater Mana Potion

I manually click to raise my summons and use Decrepify only on bosses and use Dim Vision on enemies that have long range attacks (Black Souls, Archers, etc). Pretty decent build though.

Believe it or not but your necro is hella inefficient. You loaded it with popular gear, but you didn't optimize it. Your merc's gear is literally WTF-worthy.

Might merc + Insight weapon. Treachery is a much better armor than Bramble for this build.

Good gear .. terrible application. Nice attempt though.

I'm using that gear to pretty much MF, I'm not PvP and I can PvM real good! Besides most of it was giving to me and some were found. My summons are good tanks. It's decent enough to solo in hell for me. I can always switch up the gear, I can just go through some online guides and get more ideas.

Why would you say teachery would be better than bramble? Compare the stats:

I'm not talking PVP .. I'm talking MFing and PvM optimization.

1. It's not hard to crank out better breakpoints, skill sets and other related numbers than what your set-up provides. In the long run a nec can survive damn near nekkid so it shouldn't really matter. However I'm a stickler for optimization .. making a character so damn good at their role that its almost impossible to fail at it. I had almost 400% MF + 16xx% Goldfind + perfect resists and a much better FCR and FHR breakpoint than your set-up has. I had about 14xx life before a BO+BC buff. I could solo anything in the game, even ubers. Required a lot of gear changes but it was definitely doable. Don't forget I made mine with budget in mind too .. so I didn't have access to Enigmas and the likes. High runes don't automatically mean better. Case in point: bramble.

2. For a merc, Treachery almost always wins hands-down.

Thorns aura is nice, the FHR is amazing and it comes with awesome poison resist, but the only thing worth making a bramble for is the 50% poison skill damage. If you're not making use of it ... the armor is not worth wearing. Your merc doesn't have any poison skills so he has no need for it.

Treachery makes him attack faster, gives him a bit of FHR and gives some cold resist. Nothing to write home about. He shines with 25% chance to cast lvl 15 venom. Here's what it does:

Venom
Required Level: 30
Prerequisites: Claw Mastery [1], Burst of Speed [6], Fade [18]
Effect: Poison use is another technique an a.ssassin has to help even the odds when battling demons and their ilk. An a.ssassin who has mastered this skill secretly coats her weapons with vile toxins.

Venom caps the poisoning duration at 0.4 seconds, thus preventing long term poisoning. Consequently, all other items will only inflict poison damage for 0.4 seconds. Example: Though 700 damage over 10 seconds might seem impressive only 28 damage will be inflicted due to the 0.4 seconds cap
At level 16 Venom does 325 to 345 posion damage every 0.4 seconds for about ... 3 minutes. Granted, monsters can have good posion resistance and in some cases complete immunity but it will munch through most monsters easily. And the best part is that the 3 minute timer restarts every hit you have connected with venom on.

And your merc has a 1 in 4 chance of activating the skill on every hit. If you're using the act 2 merc, he does 3 hits per attack, so he's almost guaranteed to get it on his first attack wave ;)

The second part .. probably even better than venom is fade. Those two skills are the a.ssassin's deadliest and they are available for use on your merc.

Fade
Required Level: 18
Prerequisites: Claw Mastery [1], Burst of Speed [6]
Effect: An a.ssassin can will her physical being to shift partially into the astral planes. As her body becomes less substantial, she becomes less susceptible to the effects of elemental attacks and magical curses.

Fade has a hidden bonus to Physical Resistance. Being hidden, it doesn't display on your character or on the skill. It is capped at 50%.
Fade reduces Shrine duration by the same percentage as it reduces curse duration. To avoid shortend Shrine duration, cast Burst of Speed before touching the shrine; once you touched the Shrine, cast Fade again.
Burst of Speed and Fade will not work at the same time.
At level 15, Fade reduces curse and poison duration on your merc by 79% and gives him 60% to all elemental resistances for 288 seconds. 300 seconds is 5 minutes. 4mins and 48 seconds. It does have a 5% chance of activation ... but considering how often your merc will get hit, it comes off quite often and lasts long. And yes, if it activates when the timer is on, it all restarts again. And to top it off, all physical attacks do 15% less damage to him due to a hidden Fade resistance.

Bramble costs more but it doesn't do anywhere near the amazing things Treachery does. This is the type of optimization I mean. Your char works well ... but an optimized character is a monster. Get a Might Aura merc, give him Andariel's Visage (put a Ral rune in it if you can), Treachery and an Insight weapon (get eth Cryptic Axe or eth Colossus Volgue if u wanna beast). You will thank me for this.
