    fanat level from beast

    I'm trying to make my fishymancer stronger and I was weighing using Oath versus Beast. I assumed that +skills would increase the level of the fanaticism aura from Beast and I also assumed, incorrectly, that I could have Oath on weapon switch to summon Heart of Wolverine and then switch back to my Wizard Spike and have Heart of Wolverine all the time. I chose Oath but am now disappointed since HoW disappears when I switch to my Wizzy. This can be a pain, since I tele often and each time I stop to clear an area, I'd have to switch weapons/switch skills/summon/switch skills again, whereas with Beast, fanaticism is always on when Beast is equipped, so I just need to switch to Beast when I stop teleing. Then there's the 17k per charge.

    I will probably make a Beast now, but I want to make sure that +skills on other gear will increase the power of fanaticism. My fishy currently has +5 to all skills, but I do intend to get more.

    Thanks.

    nope.

    the slvl fanat granted by Beast is fixed. all the +skills in the world cannot make it higher.

    Okay. Does it work differently for a merc? I read in the skelliemancer guide that

    Or was this changed in the latest patch?

    +all skills works on a mercs aura

    but beast gives a set lvl fanat, which cant be made higher with +skills. oskills like the bo from cta can, but not fanat from beast/might from lw/medi from insite/convic from infinit/etc

    You could always dual-wield beasts with a barb.

    Yea, but Barbs don't make very good Fishymancers.

    Beast isn't much of a help for a fishy anyway, believe me. I have one.

    Yeah thats true helvete, i wanted a beast so bad last ladder and when i finaly got it i used it 1 or 2 times then it whent to stash. Your overall preformance is lowerd with beast, thats why i use Hoto 98% of the time and 2% Cta.
