    Call to Arms question

    Hi,
    have a question regarding the runeword weapon Call to Arms. Say I had a CTA that had 3 Battle Command, 2 Battle Orders and 2 Battle Cry and I used one with my pala who through the items he wears has a +12 skills bonus (2 with mara, 2 with hoz, 3 with hoto, 2 with eni, 1 with arach, 2 with shako). Would the BComm jump to 15, BO to 14 and BC to 14 or would they remain 3/2/2 and recieve no boost from the +skills items I wear?

    It will receive skill-bonuses. CtA even has +1 To all Skills so that will be added too. But:

    -HoZ gives plus to PALADIN skills, that means no CtA skills bonus.
    -You cant use CtA and Hoto at same time

    This runeword is another overpowered one from Ladder only ;) :

    spirit
    4 socket swords/shields
    tal + thul + ort + amn

    shields
    +2 to all skills
    +25-35% faster cast rate (varies)
    +55% faster hit recovery
    +250 defense vs. missile
    +22 to vitality
    +89-112 to mana (varies)
    cold resist +35%
    lightning resist +35%
    poison resist +35%
    +3-8 magic absorb (varies)
    attacker takes damage of 14

    As another alternative to Lidless Wall, you also have Splendor :

    splendor
    2 socket shields
    eth + lum
    +1 to all skills
    +10% faster cast rate
    +20% faster block rate
    +60-100% enhanced defense (varies)
    +10 to energy
    regenerate mana 15%
    50% extra gold from monsters
    20% better chance of getting magic items
    +3 to light radius
    increase maximum durability 12%

    As you play paladin you don't need to make it in a monarch and can thus make a pretty awesome spirit. As the runes are so cheap you could just use the first decent pal shield you come across while you wait for a better one.
    Spirit monarchs (even the 35fcr ones) are overpriced IMO (Up to ist on Eu L).

    Oh, ok, a barb can, I was thinking of a paladin, which was suggested by the original poster.
