As far as Act 2 merc weapons, Insight and Obedience are amazingly cheap if you're willing to settle for a Bill/Battle Scythe/Partizan. And a Spirit in a high resist pally shield, even a normal one, or a Crystal Sword is very cool!:thumbsup:
Since I haven't had much time to play since the restart I'm a little behind so I'm still on the lookout for a 2os helm for lore, 3os armor for those new runewords, 4os crystal sword for a spirit, a good 4os bow for harmony, 4os polearm, and a good 2os shield for splendor or rhyme.
