I cannot afford to equip my Templar with really good items, as I have to use all my money on my main char.
The Templar seems to do really nice in Act 1 with the gear I gave him.
This looks quite different in Act 2. Here he can only divert the enemy for a few hits until he dies. Act 3 is a disaster, he usually just dies from 1 to two hits. I need him to tank about 5-7 hits so my DH can deal the required damage without getting bothered.
Can I somehow equip him with gear that he can actually help in Act 3 and 4 or am I on my own from now on? What items should I look for?
Again the question is not: What follower should I use, but can I use the Templar with really good gear in Act 3 and 4?
