    The best large charms that I've found were probably +5 str/dex and another mod, although never superb.

    For the value of your charm you should ask around in the trade forums.

    The best ones that I have found.

    These are the best large charms I have found. Whether or not they are valuable, I don't really know (but I would assume so).

    Large Charms get a bit of a bad rep because there are very few situations in the endgame where a LC is a better use of space than a GC or a SC - in fact the only ones are +Str (as mentioned) and +Dex, and +min damage (and hardly anybody uses those).

    Where they are useful is in the mid game. For a lot of mods, during the middle stages of the game, the best LCs are more efficient than the other charms, usually because SCs that are better require a higher level to use them.

    There is also the case of elemental damage - the top LC elemental prefixes are better than anything except the top SC prefixes - and those typically require Baal SCs to produce them. So if you have limited resources, those LCs make a decent second best option.

    The other time I use lots of LCs is the very start of the game, again for +Str and +Dex - you can get up to +3 of either on a LC that is usable at level 2. With those you can twink on much better gear early than you otherwise could (I typically put a full Sigon Set on all my chars at clvl 6). Of course these twinking techniques are useless to a lot of online players who don't actually play the early stages of the game and just get rushed and levelled everywhere.

    Large Charm mods to watch out for:
    of Dexterity (+3 at clvl 2, +5 at clvl 13)
    of Strength (ditto)
    Boreal (usable at clvl 41, best cold damage until Boreal SCs at clvl 58)
    Hibernal (usable at clvl 61, best cold damage until Hibernal SCs at clvl 83 which require Baal charms)
    Flaming (usable at clvl 59, best fire damage until Flaming SCs at clvl 81 which require Baal charms)
    Arcing (usable at clvl 40, best light damage until Arcing SCs at clvl 57)
    Shocking (usable at clvl 60, best light damage until Shocking SCs at clvl 82 which require Baal charms)

    I found a Shocking LC of Storms in 1.09, that did 2-117 lightning damage and was usable at level 60, I was rather fond of that. I don't recall what else I have found, don't have my mules here at work with me.
    "Best" is a fairly subjective opinion, of course.

    MF + life can be useful too. A LC can have both 6MF and 35 life. This is much better than stacking 20 life SC and 7% MF SC. I have an LC with 35 life and 3% MF.

    I'd MUCH rather have small charms with MF because grand charms can have skills and life, so after a while, you don't want the large charms to get in the way of the grand charms... And being an MF freak, I have ~20 7% MF SCs... Stacked on my lvl 93 pindle only blizz sorc. Together with IstIst ali baba, 40% gheeds, 39% and 37% "Fortutious Ring of Fortune".... Makes for 800+ MF still able to kill pindle in no time.

    My best LC is still "shimmering of balance" 8%resist all and 8%fhr.

    My best LC are :

    Medium Charm 8% Res All 25 Life
    Medium Charm 6 Max 21 AR 1-5 Lightning Damage
    Medium Charm 175 Poison Damage During 6 Seconds 21 Life
    Medium Charm 6 Max 24 AR 1-36 Lightning Damage
    Medium Charm 6 Max 34 AR 4 Dex


    As you can see, no endgame charms, but pretty nice for middle lvl chars :thumbsup: !

    LC mods top out at ilvl 81 (needed for +31-35 life "of Vita"). There is no extra value to a LC from Baal than from most of Hell.

    I would probably not bother rolling an LC of any kind though. I pick them all up just to check, but that is about it.
