What's the best set up for a hammerdin act 2 defensive merc?

I'd like two answers here- the ABSOLUTE best setup for the merc, and a good affordable one (if the absolute best one costs too much)

Prices for the absolute best one would be appreciated,too :)

You are gonna get tons of ppl saying their build is the best and so forth. There really is no BEST but there are a few that fuckin rock. I like to think mine is pretty damn good.

Eth Andy Cham'd
Eth Forti (sacred armor)
Eth Cryptic Axe DOOM

I like to use a defiance merc for a hammerdin cuz the conc adds lots of dmg but you can use a might merc if you really want him to have really high dmg. Forti adds the +5 max light res and that means with a BO he can tank souls and meph no prob. With andys on, meph and andy are cake as well.

A cheaper merc setup that I have used in the past

Eth gaze (socketed with w/e i used a 15ias res jwl)
Eth Shaft or even a shitty forti
(forti is only LO, its pretty cheap)
Eth Tomb reaver or an eth sup obediance (nice fhr and res, decent dmg as well)

K, ill tell you my build, its not the best... but it works pretty damn good for me. First - Armor Fort (eth or not dont really matter unless you def freak or something) Helm - Dream, Weapon - Insight (eth works pretty good for me)

Im using a Act 2 norm combat mercinary. Since prayer is a req of meditation I gain about 30-40 life every 2 seconds... works great for baals.

He was obviously talking about a act 1 merc...

But then again, the poster specifically said ACT 2 Defensive merc..

Yeah thats a good merc hes strong and all but dont forget that the HAMMERDIN does the most owning. So to take advantage of that you MUST USE INFINITY for infinate mana... unless you want to pick up mana pots and redemption.
