Not sure if Blizzard overlooked this or something, but I have an Ormus' Robe with +3 Enchant, I gave it to my Act3 Fire merc, and it in fact works! I was surprised.

So then I thought, well maybe I can use my +3 to Fire Skills circlet on him. Nope. This one doesn't work. This is odd, and a little annoying. I really hate inconsistencies like this.

Both effects say "Sorceress Only" but the one for a specific skill works, but not for a skill tree. Hmm.

This is an old question, but I think I can answer it. This is an area where we're benefitting from an exception.

When a +Specific Skill affix matches a skill that the merc already has (e.g. Enchant on Iron Wolves and Frenzy on Barbs), then the +skill works, but +Class and +Skill Tab affixes do not work. As far as I know, but I'm not 100% sure, that the other +damage type affixes work on mercs as well.
