    Best armor for my skelliemancer

    Well I currently have Darkglow equiped but I just found the Spirit shroud which has the +1 to skills which would help me a lot but I then loose all of my resistance that darkglow gives me. I am in Nightmare so the extra resistance would help but I like the +1 skills.

    Well, the Darkglow is a normal armor so the Spirit Shroud will give you higher defense as well as the skills. . . cannot be frozen is never a bad mod either, even for a skellimancer. What you want is the Skin of the Vipermagi, which is the best of both worlds with plus 1 to skills as well as a healthy resists all and faster cast, to boot.

    Of course, I have only ever found one whereas the Spirit Shrouds seem to appear almost as frequently as green breast plates. My skellimancer loves it, though, much to my sorc's chagrin.

    trangs / skin of the vipermagi / spirit shroud...

    any +skill armor with low strength requirements. other mods are a bonus. use what you got / can find.

    best armor for a skellimancer would be a Chains of Honor imo, but if you're MFing I'd say go for enigma. But trangs armor is great an cheap too!

    Why chains of honor? I see this as a more melee oriented armor. DId someone get bit by the 'uber l33t gear bug'???

    lol, no

    Just the resists and +skills make it quite a good skelemancer armor, just because you don't use the 7% LL doesn't mean it's not for non-melee.

    I'm not the first the advocate the use of CoH for a skellimancer, I've read alot of threads in the past mentioning it. +65 all resists +2 to all skills is nothing to scoff at.

    I kinda suck at rune word making because I have bad luck in this game because I have yet to find anything with more than 3 sockets and I only find low lvl runes. I have upgraded runes but that only gets me so far...

    You certainly don't need those kind of runewords, NC is just saying that CoH would be the "best" summoner armor in general, but for peope who can't get the runes (me included) the others people have listed work well :thumbsup:

    In that case, definitely go with ViperMagi since your focus is skills and resists. You can probably go to the trade forums and trade Perfect Gems for one.

    If no summoner uses Enigma, then why is it one of the most sought after items for summoners?

    The tele is fantastic for positioning your minions.
