Pretty subjective question, really depends on you're build and what you want out of it.

For any caster I'd imagine eth andy's and an eth CV insight, I spose eth Andy's is probably the best option across the board when you think about it.

For any class that has many troubles:
Insight Merc.

For any class that doesn't have mana troubles:
Infinity Merc.

And that's about the end of that lol.

so would a perfect infinity be better than a perfect BotD for a merc?

Helm is Eth Andy's or Eth Gaze.
Armor is Eth Fortitude.
Weapon is either Eth Infinity, Eth Insight, or if you need neither (auto hitting physical build comes to mind), EBoTD. Faith and EPride can work too if you want an aura.
If declaring my opinion is akin to declaring war, then war I shall declare on the so-called veterans.

I used to have fun with an Act 2 Might merc with Dream Helm, Dragon Armor, and Doom polearm

So, Might, Holy Freeze, Holy Fire, and Holy Shock aura. Not sure if it still works though, definitely not the best set up, but it was fun.
Of course, all good things must be deleted by a gamefaqs moderator.

Depends on your char and what you need the merc for.

Helm:
Vamp Gaze
Guillaume's Face
Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest
Crown of Thieves
Andariel's Visage

eth are best and use um rune if you need res for merc or if using andys use a ral

Armor:
Chains of Honor
Fortitude
Leviathan
Shaftstop
Duress

for the runewords, eth bug them (google it if you have too) and for the others, use um if merc needs res.

Weapons:
Insight
Infinity
The Reaper's Toll
Tomb Reaver

eth is best

eBotD War Pike with a Treachery and some kind of leech helm is pretty nasty.
That is the first time I've ever saw someone accuse someone of living in their mother's basement for not watching anime. - DM
