Mercs can have multiple auras active. For example, a2 merc with blessed aim, wielding an insight polearm (meditation) dragon armor (holy fire) and dream helm (holy shock) has four active auras at one time.

If both the natural aura and item aura are the same, then the highest level one will be active and the lower level one will be off.

If 2 items give the same aura, then they're levels will be added and count as one aura.

If the auras are different, then they will all be on.

Hence a paladin with dream helm, dragon armor, last wish, exile and a pride+bramble merc can have: holy shock, might, concentration, holy fire, fanatacism, thorns, holy freeze or prayer(on merc), and defiance at the same time.

So a possibility of 8 total auras at once with the right runewords :D There are other possible auras you can get from different weapons for both the pally and the merc, but you'll never get more than 8 at once.
