A good purchase?

I just finished a NM Baal run with my sole Mat, Khaladae, a lvl 74 c/c 'sin which proved fruitless as I didnt have a chance to switch from regular gear to MF gear before he died so I wound up with 4 blue & 2 stacks of gold. I picked up a couple of item hoping for some sell value at least and while selling them to Larzuk, I did something I rarely do - look at what's for sale, and I found this:

Shadow Crown
Defense: 44
Durability: 50 of 50
Required Strength: 55
Required Level: 45
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 80
Fingerprint: 0x768a5878
+3 to Shadow Discipline Skills (Assassin Only)

having never seen something like this for sale, I bought it. It certainly beats anything I got on the Baal run.

Now my question is, is this really all that valuable or do I just need to get out more?

It's a nice crown. It's not overly exceptional, but it's still a nice find. It's kinda like finding a Cruel Battle Sword while shopping.

An item with plus three to a skill tree isn't very rare, but it is really cool when you get it on a build that can use it; especially untwinked chars. That said, I doubt you'll find too many in a game anyway, but they are more common than uniques or sets, I believe. My barb found a +3 to Warcries Ammy, for example, and has not found another +3 to X skill tree item, and he is level 86, used frequently...anyone know the lvl reqs for getting +3 on an item?

well, Khalie is already using Natalya's set helm, so the main use for this crown would be just for casting her Shadow/venom/BoS (or Fade) prior to hitting the WSK waypoint.

I gues what surprised me the most was finding it not in the WSK during my Baal run, but for sale afterwards. It's like going to the farm and killing the cow just to get a lousy cut of meat, then coming home and finding a great steak at the corner grocery store

good find to use , no more.

my untwinked HC assassin found
Cunning Coronet of the Tiger 'Ort'
Defense: 39
Durability: 30 of 30
Required Level: 45
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 66
Fingerprint: 0x3f5b095c
+21 to Life
Lightning Resist +30%
+3 to Trap Skills (Assassin Only)
Socketed (1: 1 used)
so it's with +21 life in more and have a socket by quest reward.

if you gamble coronet, you'll have some luck to find +3 tree skill.
