Baal Run Merc Equipment

My blizzballer, Hecate, is now at level 91 and is fairly well capable of handling /players8 Baal runs. My merc, however, dies ~twice per run. I was wondering what equipment the serious WSK/Baal runners use on their merc.

For WSK and minions:
Ethereal Andariel's Visage
Tal's Armor (helps counter -fire resist on Andy's)
The Reaper's Toll

For Baal:
Guillaume's Face
Tal's Armor
Kelpie Snare (slow prevents successful Baal attacks)

My merc is at level 91, so he has base resists of +55 w/ no equipment, 65/75/75/85 with WSK/minion setup, and 75/75/75/55 with Baal setup.

Or: (eth) Reaper's, (eth/upped) Shaft & (eth) Vamp Gaze.

Stick a res all jewel in the helm or armor, and your merc will have maxed resists and pdr(%) (+life leech).

That's what my mercs wear :)

Well, I don't have any ethereal versions of Vamp, Shaft, or Reaper's, but I did find a +11 resist all jewel, a 15% IAS/+15 max dmg jewel, and a rare 10% FR/LR/CR, 23% PR, 1-33 ltng dmg, 20 psn dmg/2 sec jewel in my stash. Thanks for the input all.
