    Baal Charms?

    I'm sorry, I should have asked this question earlier, having seen it mentioned many times, but the more I hold on to my question, the more embarassed I get, it seems to be something I should know :) I was hoping someone else would ask this first:

    What is special about magical grand charms dropped by Baal? What have they to do with crafting and/or other?

    they have the highest possible item level in the game (99 i think) and when rolled (3pgems+any magical item, in this case baal gc) they produce the most high level mods .. the most highly sought after being +skills

    ppl use these over other magical gc's past a3 nm b/c they roll other nice mods as well, i got one with huge ar and life which i still use :)

    i think since they are ilvl 99, any mod in the game can roll on them thats possible on a gc (correct me if im wrong here)

    Skiller Grand Charms with +life on them are some of the most expensive items in the game... A pally +combat skills charm with +40 to life would go for an INSANE amount of runes. Baal GCs are one of the few drops that can get to this point I believe, another being Nihlathak GCs and I think there may be other places too.

    skiller +life charms are exactly perfect for PvP, and PvP items are already expensive. Adding uberness and extreme rarity to the PvP factor causes the prices of skiller/life GCs to skyrocket.

    Or you could roll a high poison damage on a baal sc i think.

    I have recently sold a baal grand charm for UM on europe ladder.

    But i've been flamed A LOT in trade chanels when i tried to sell my baal SC for um, it's a selffound baal sc, thus lvl 99, but it says "adds 1-2 cold damage" or something pathetic like that.

    "WTF. are you kidding me? your charm sucks!"
    "Well IT IS a baal sc! lvl 99!"
    "1-2 cold dmg? omg noob! screw you"

    (they are less polite in game...)

    Very true, you're thinking of a pestilent sc of anthrax. (I've rolled a pestilent charm of anthrax... on a grand charm... grr...)
    You're absolutely right about the current mods not necessarily being indicative of the charm's level, but (on East at least) small Baal charms are worth less than grands, which may be a reason for some of the hostility you observed.

    When selling (or buying) Baal charms on bnet, it helps a lot if they have a mod that can appear on a Baal charm only, like a 41+ life on a GC.

    The rarest "of vita" mod grants 41-45 life, 36-40 can be dropped by numerous monsters.

    Can a baal grandcharm be rerolled as many times as possible until a nice mod appears? Or does the item level drop once a very bad mod (like 1-2 cold damage) is rolled.

    Oh and btw is there any way to check the item level of an item?

    Yes you can reroll it an unlimited number of times.
    The ilvl will not be modified.

    You need a third-party program to check item levels. If you are a legit player, ask a friend with (insert third party program name here) to autenthicate the charm level.
    Btw, discussions about such programs are not allowed in here, so be careful ;)
