    How much damage can skellies do?

    I've made a hybrid Poison/Skellymancer. Most powerfull combo in game in my opinion.

    Maxed out all poison skills and Raise skell, Skell Mastery.

    I use a might merc but was wondering how the Might aura affects skell damage.

    How do you tell the amont of damage skellies are doing with the might aura in effect?

    I also use an Oath sword for the +125% damage HOTW aura. I use a Wisp ring to keep the aura in effect when I switch weapons.

    Is it worth getting a Pride weapon for my merc?

    I assume that Infinity does not affect poison resistence.

    Are there any other ways to increase skelly damage apart from plus skills gear?

    It would also be nice to have an Ice bow for the level 18 Holy Freeze aura as a weapon switch.

    I have found that the Thorns aura also helps heaps from Bramble and an Edge bow.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    conviction helps skellie damage in that it lowers defenses to such an extent that the skeleton low AR is no longer issue. if you can afford the necessary runeword(s) you can get other auras such as concentration or fanaticism

    Thx for the reply.

    The HOTW Aura adds heaps to my skelly chance to hit as well as 125% damage.

    The game tells you how much damage your skeleton warrriors do. It also tells you a "+xxx % damage".

    Simply remove that +xxx% damage from the damage displayed to get the "base damage" for your skeletons. Then add this +xxx% damage, along with +xxx% damage from auras to get the total damage.

    The might level from a merc is (clvl-15)/4
    The might %ed is (slvl+3)*10
