    How on earth...?

    How do you people get those +20 skills? I can't see any items that together would add more than 15!

    Sorry for sounding rude. Just trying to find better equipment for my martyr, lol.

    Well, getting +20 skills is easy if you have Annihilus and Skill GCs. Most casters can get close to +20 to skills on their gear alone, but that usually pushes them to sacrifice things like FCR, Resistances, FHR, etc.

    Some common items that add good skills are:

    Shako
    Mara's, Highlord's, Rares/Crafted Amulets
    Class Specific Weapons like Scepters, Claws, etc
    Enigma, CoH, Skin of the Vipermagi
    Spirit, Lidless, Visceratuant
    Magefists (Fire only)
    SoJ, BK Ring
    Arachnid's

    That's just off the top of my head. That help any?

    Do you really want/need that much +skill on a non-caster build?

    lol, sorry, i dont' really play online. for some reason, my CD key got banned.

    and yes, i do want that extra damage from the +skills.

    thanks for replying guys, but i don't really have, and can't really get, an annihilus charm, and currently, GCs take up a lot of room (can't fit more than 7).

    Let me echo Liliel sentiment. That many +skills usually ends up compromising other essential modifiers for a melee build (i.e. PDR, Leech, Life/Vit, Resists, etc.).

    Here is a list anyway:

    HoZ: +2 Combat, +2 Paladin
    Magical Ammy: + 3 Combat
    2xBK: + 2 All
    Arachnid's: +1 All
    CoH: +2 All
    Harley/Andariel's: +2 All
    Heaven's Light: +3 Paladin
    7 Lionbranded GCs: +7 combat


    This setup will give you +24 skill points to Combat Skills. Add a skill shrine and Battle Command and you're looking at +27 skill points to Combat skills.

    Ok, here's my setup, and dilemma.
    Shield: HOZ
    Armor: COH
    Helm: COA
    Gloves: Dracul's Grasp
    Belt: Verdungo's Hearty Cord
    Ring: Raven Frost
    Ring: BK
    Ammy: Mara's

    What can I get that gives me more plus to skills? I still haven't decided on my weapon yet...

    Basically the only way to get more +skills from those slots is to go with the options outlined above (i.e. harlequin crest or andy helm, arachnid for belt, and another BK instead of Raven). Your only dilemma is that in order to get those skills you have to give up other desirable mods, which is why the people posting above suggested that for a melee build going all skills might not be the best idea.

    For example, you pretty much need the raven (barring another source for CBF), so it's probably better to go with your current rings setup than 2xBK. Likewise with the belt... there is no other belt for skills than arachnid, but you're probably better off with the verdungo.

    To be honest your gear looks pretty good to me.

    Astreon's Iron Ward can get you +4 combat skills, and has some nice mods on it (fast weapon on Paladin, crushing blow, slow target, magic damage, AR boost).
