    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.

    I can't give a definite yes.. but I suppose it does benefit from plus skills..

    But the War Cries don't stack from CTAs.

    I have no solid proof either but what most people say is that things with "+x to all skills" work, but not "+x to paladin skills", not sure about +barbarian skills though.

    You are correct.

    get alot off +to all skill items to "over"-bo an barb, it can only be done (i think) when barbs dont max their bo skills

    Shako2
    Mara2
    Enigma, COH, ARky2
    Shield1
    CTA 6 +1
    arachnid belt1
    anni1
    2Xsoj2

    18 + cry for +1 = 19
    Maybe i made some mistakes or forgotten to mention better items :)
