    Magic Skill Damage?

    Hi, I'm AlphaMagnum and I've been playing for a month or so.

    I am aware that items like a piece of body armor with the 'Bramble' Runeword give bonuses to poison skills. Out of curiosity, I was wondering if there was some way (besides Synergies and Curse skills) to enhance the damage dealt by skills such as the Necromancer's Teeth, Bone Spear, and Bone Spirit, which all deal Magic damage.

    Any help would be appreciated...

    There's NOTHING that increases magic damage nor lowers magic resistance. No curse, aura, or item will help its damage. The only exception I know of it Concentration boosting Hammers. So for most kinds of magic damage, the only way to boost it is through +skills.

    Yeah, magic is kinda special, only one item has +resist% to it, and there's no boosting it, and even few monsters have any resist to it.

    Well i'am not @Merick, but here's an answer;

    Safety Shield Magic Kite Shield/Dragon Shield/Monarch
    Nef Rune
    Perfect Emerald
    Any Jewel

    + (10-30)% Enhanced Defense
    Magic Resistance +(5-10)%
    Magic Damage Reduced By (1-2)
    Damage Reduced By (1-4)
