    Definitively - the highest skill levels

    I decided to sit down and calculate the absolute highest level skill a character could possibly have. Mostly because I was a little bored, as
    anyone actually using this setup would have serious problems in relation to resists, FHR, IAS etc etc.

    I calculated the following, and also took into account + to Individual skills. And all of these can be accomplished legitimately. Apologies for being so long.


    Fire Sorc

    Using Warmth, Inferno or Firebolt.

    + 3 Circlet (Volcanic)
    + 3 Volcanic Amulet
    + 9 Leaf runeword staff, with inherent +3 to Warmth,Inferno or Firebolt
    + 2 Armour
    + 2 Rings
    + 1 Arachnid Mesh
    + 1 Magefist
    + 11 Charms

    = + 32 skills

    Breakdown:

    + 6 All Skills (Armour, Rings, Arachnid Mesh, Annihilus)
    + 20 Fire skills (Circlet, Amulet, Leaf staff, Grand Charms)
    + 6 individual skill (Leaf staff)

    = Level 52 Warmth, Inferno or Firebolt. Level 53 if affected by Battle Command.


    Fire Druid

    Any of the fire skills maxed.

    + 6 from pelt (Gaean; +3 individual skill)
    + 3 Gaean Amulet
    + 7 Earthshifter
    + 2 Armour
    + 2 Rings
    + 1 Arachnid Mesh
    + 1 Magefist
    + 11 Charms

    = + 33 skills

    Breakdown:

    + 6 All Skills (Armour, Rings, Arachnid Mesh, Annihilus)
    + 23 Elemental Skills (Pelt, Amulet, Earthshifter, Grand Charms)
    + 1 Fire Skills (Magefist)
    + 3 Individual Skill (Pelt)

    = Level 53 Fire Skill of your choice. Level 54 if affected by Battle Command.


    Frenzy Barb

    Using Frenzy of course.

    + 6 Barb Helm (Masters; + 3 Frenzy)
    + 3 Masters Amulet
    + 10 dual wielding Fury runeword weapons
    + 2 Armour
    + 2 Rings
    + 1 Arachnid Mesh
    + 11 Charms

    = + 35 skills

    Breakdown:

    + 6 All Skills (Armour, Rings, Arachnid Mesh, Annihilus)
    + 16 Combat skills (Helm, Amulet, Grand Charms)
    + 13 individual skill (helm, dual Fury)

    = Level 55 Frenzy. Level 56 if affected by Battle Command.


    Skeleton Necro

    Using Skeleton Mastery.

    + 3 Circlet (Golemlords)
    + 3 Golemlords Amulet
    + 7 White runeword wand, with inherent +3 to Skeleton Mastery
    + 6 Totem (Golemlords; +3 Skeleton Mastery)
    + 2 Armour
    + 2 Rings
    + 1 Arachnid Mesh
    + 2 Marrowwalk
    + 11 Charms

    = + 37 skills

    Breakdown:

    + 6 All Skills (Armour, Rings, Arachnid Mesh, Annihilus)
    + 19 Summoning skills (Circlet, Amulet, Totem, Grand Charms)
    + 12 individual skill (White wand, Totem, Marrowwalk)

    = Level 57 Skeleton Mastery. Level 58 if affected by Battle Command.


    Martial Arts Assassin

    Using any martial arts skill.

    + 3 Circlet (Kenshi's)
    + 3 Kenshi's Amulet
    + 12 Dual wielding Kenshi's claws, with +3 to an individual skill
    + 2 Armour
    + 2 Rings
    + 1 Arachnid Mesh
    + 3 Kenshi's gloves
    + 11 Charms

    = + 37 skills

    Breakdown:

    + 6 All Skills (Armour, Rings, Arachnid Mesh, Annihilus)
    + 25 Martial Arts skills (Circlet, Amulet, dual claws, Gloves, Grand Charms)
    + 6 individual skill (Dual claws)

    = Level 57 Martial Arts skill. Level 58 if affected by Battle Command.


    So there you have it. Let me know if I calculated wrong anywhere.

    Level 60 if under the influence of a skill shrine.

    Interesting stuff.

    Ah yes... The Skill Shrines. I always seem to forget about those.

    Wow - a legit (albeit unlikely) skill level of 60. :surprise:

    You forgot to list Ormus Robes under Fire Sorc, which would bring either Fire Bolt or Inferno to lvl 53.

    Well, I didn't say these were the only ways to get the highest skill levels. These are only the ones I thought of :bonk:

    Hmmm, highest warcry? let's see...

    +8 bonespear wand would be 1 more then +7 skele mastery, but you you wouldn't get +2 skills from boots. Bone armor can match skeleton mastery with a +9 (!!!) bone armor wand.

    There is an article here on Diabloii.net that discusses the affects of +to skills on the rouge merc. they got as much plus to skills stuff as they could on the merc and it was around +140 to skills.

    Edit: it is 112. give 19 for mercs natural levels and that leaves 93. thats a lotta + to skillz! See it Here!

    Argh... why bring back a 2-month thread to life?

    Those skills don't work anymore. They did for .09, but blizzard disabled them for 1.10. Also, all that was done in singleplayer with non-legit stuff (legitness was the intent of the thread-maker), but I'm sure you already know that.

    Frostwind's +14 to artic blast is capped at only +3 when worn by the druid. Same thing with Flamebellow (inferno skill) when worn by the sorceress.

    Lets see... (taking into consideration that the inferno skill can only be increased with +'s to all skills)

    18 Flamebellow
    18 Flamebellow
    2 Rings
    2 Ammys
    2 Helm
    1 Belt
    1 Annihilus
    2 Armor

    18 + 18 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 = slvl 46 Inferno
    So no, dual Flamebellows would not the best.

    Edit: I'm unsure about whether or not Magefist's +1 to Fire Skills (all classes) would increase the inferno's slvl, so 46 may be a 47. However, that doesn't change anything, as it's still relatively low, compared to the others.
