Click on the MERC tab on your inventory. You get four slots to insert items for your merc: waist, shoulders, ear and neck. No idea why limited to those 4 and the default images used for the slots are nothing like what you can put IN the slot.
Funny how the base stats for mercs are packed high for AGI. I guess so that's so they can avoid getting whacked. Or is it to make it easier for them to run like **** when they bail?
