High-level Teeth

What happens to the Teeth skill at slvls >20? Does the number of teeth continue to increase, or only the damage per tooth?

Teeth caps at 24 teeth. After that, only damage increases.

You should pretty much be hitting everything on the screen with them by then, so extra teeth wouldn't do anything anyway.

At slvl 20, the tooth damage is 23-31. At slvl 30, is the tooth damage 43-51? Does the max and min damage keep going up by +2 per level.

I've always been fascinated by the skills that rise geometrically in power as you level up. Teeth, multishot, the sorc's charged bolt, etc. But ultimately, they don't seem to be very useful.

Charged Bolt and Multishot can be really good.
Agreed, two very very powerful skills...

CB can go up to about 1200 dmg per bolt (x24) and Multi... well Faith will answer that one.

Teeth also has potential, only with big synergies though, seeing as it gets a whopping bonus for every synergy point.

At Skill level 30 Teeth does 43-56 damage. As Sartok said, you'll need to pump those synergies. Take a look at the Dentist guide for some good Teeth tactics.

Thanks, I had never seen the Dentist guide but had had the identical idea - take advantage of Marrowwalks bug and the +15% synergy in teeth and go beserk with the + P&B and +Teeth skills.

Except, rather than call it the Dentist, I was going to call it the
JawBonemancer. Oh well, I honestly think all the possible builds have been written up.

My teeth do about 450 damage each.

Spine_Drool vrs Hamburger.

Spine_Drool opens mouth and bites hamburger for 450 damage.

Hamburger was slain by Spine_Drool.

*Steals gold, calls hamburger a noob, and buys another one*

If you have a fully synergized bonemancer I don't see any reason not to use all three skills. I save Bone Spirit for last since the plus skills I get out of a +8 bone spear white wand keep it competetive with Spirit for one on one battles, but teeth is invaluable for taking out large groups of low HP enemies and spear does a great job against groups of tougher targets and in corridors.

I've seen a lot of people play really boring bonemancers. All they do is spam BS. They don't even use walls or curses. Cuts the fun and effectiveness in half IMO.
