From the useful guide:

Exemplar
Exemplar is self-sustained melee fighter that doesnt require much attention or your potion. His skillset pretty much allow him to focus on either crowd control or passively dealing WDM attack. Physical immune is not a problem for him as both Retaliate and Disintegrate dealing magic damage.
Recommend for : Ranged / Fragile Class

Shapeshifter
Shapeshifter is one of tankiest mercenaries by having large health pool. However he lacked of regen skill, so he need to rely from your potion or having large amount of life leech. Bloodlust good all around damage buff that affecting all your allies.
Recommend for : Caster, Summoner

Fighter Mage
Figther Mage is one of excellent mercenaries that focused on crowd control. His skill set focus multi hitting WDM skill, so he also are good to become a proc machine. With chronofield and glacial Nova, player can just focus on offensive
Recommend for : Ranged class, Summoner

So as you can see, Act II mercs choice depends on the build you're playing. If it's a barb of course, you can hire one of them, no problem, but sorcs, for example, would take much more benefits from such mercs.

Oh, you should note that it's an uberquest area now. Actually, this uberquest is really hard, so it's no need to search for Staff of Kings (it drops in Snake's tomb along with an amulet) there as well as explore these areas at that part of the game (I assume you're on Hatred difficulty now).

remember that mercs become weak after you either resurrect them or change their gear, and you have to save&exit and rejoin game to fix them

you got a print button (if laptop you need to do print + fn) on your keyboard push it and you have 2 options:
1. it should create a screenshot in your d2 folder
2. open something like paint and than "insert" and save as

as necromancer mb go for totems:
ice + fire totem + summons is a very strong and save combination, with bend of shadows are you very mobil

btw if you do 67-79 dmg with funeral pyre at lvl 30, there is something really wrong with your skill/stats placement.
