Do item skills get boost from skills? E.g. CtA Sorry, I'm sure this kind of question has been answered a few dozen times, but none of my forum searches yielded the info I'm looking for. My question is, as a non-barb character with a CtA on weapon switch, will my BO be boosted by plus-to-skill items? I thought that the answer was no, but I've been in a game where a high-lvl barb claimed to be out-BO'd by a CtA-wielding Paladin, so maybe I was wrong. Reason I'm asking is I'm considering buying one, and wondered how important the CtA's BO stat is if I get a boost of 8 or so for my other items' plus-to-skills. If I get the boost I'm shopping for bargain basement. Otherwise, I'll have to save up for a longggggggg time to get a +5 or 6 one.
