I used the enchantress all the way to act2 inferno, and then switched to templar, he is loads better. She does random cc, pushed stuff in your direction sometimes when you're kiting and so on. Plus she always runs behind you, so monsters always goes 100% for you.
Templar actually tanks some before he dies, and those 1-2 seconds is enough to empty your arcane power and get away. Plus he heals, his voice acting is million times better than the enchantress. GLORIOUS!!!
I get + magic find and vitality on him on all slots except the relic. It supplies 20% to your magic find, so that nets me around 13-14 magic find. You can stack all you want on him, and he will still die, mine got 70k hp and still dies quite often, but thats just inferno

i actually think templar is probably better. if you stack vit., then he doesnt die all that much, and i dont really care when he does :p, but i dont notice that much of a kiting advantage with enchantress, but i do notice templar's heals/cc early fight.
Templar can block doorways/bridges for a few seconds, and his health Regen/healing is useful vs nasty mobs (like reflect damage) and health regen is just nice, in general. He also is a potential forward target for invisible monsters (like the Naga in A2 and the Phase Beasts in A3).
Enchantress dies just as often and is mentally handicapped when using her CCs (although she almost can't mess up the push; it's valuable whenever she uses it, essentially). I think she gives enough advantages, overall, to warrant her use. However, I feel she is more useful if you already have godly gear.
The Scoundrel probably has the best ability of the 3 with his AoE stun(blind), and his slow isn't bad. His bonus to damage or crit %chance bonus are both very sexy. I think he is more suited for Arcane Orb users. Again, I think he is the merc of choice for people that can say, "I have godly +25% crit chance gear with a nice chunk of IAS."
So, in short, Templar is the poor-man's choice, whereas Enchantress and Scoundrel are nice offensive options for those who can breeze through already and just want to do it more efficiently.
