Does Crescent Moon help on merc?

Well, I have a light sorc and I was just wondering if Crescent Moon would work as a replacement for infinity since I could not afford it last ladder. I'm not sure if the -35 light resistance on the merc would help you?

Sorry for not knowing this.
Thanks!

nope. -enemy resistance only works if you are holding the item yourself. similarly, if you hold a crescent moon, your act III lightning mercenary would not get the benefits of -enemy resistance. lower resist is a curse, and conviction is an aura so they work differently.

infinity has both ctc lightnin and -enemy lit resist. when a merc holding infinity casts lightning, that bolt of lightning does get the benfit of -enemy resist.
