    My opinion is that its not a bug

    It is more like a bonus to us Necromancers. But you will not get the synergy bonus if you place any points into bone prison.

    I understand if you would like to put points into bp so that you could use it without using charges, but doing this would disable the synergy bonus.

    Ok..being new to Necs, and being very curious about using marrowwalks...could someone please explain how this Bone Prison feature works?

    It gives +33 to Bone Prison, which is a synergy to the rest of your Bone Skills and it's listed as having charges. Now...does this mean that you automatically get a +33 Bone prison, +synergies bonus to your other one skills, or do you have to expend a charge each time, to get the skill+synergy bonus? Also...how long does each charge last...?

    Thanks ahead of time

    If you are wearing the boots, and they have at least one charge of Bone Prison, and you haven't put any skill points into Bone Prison, then you get synergies from Bone Prison to the order of skill level 33.

    If you run out of charges for some reason, you will have no synergy from Bone Prison.

    If you put any points into Bone Prison on your own, then you lose all the bonus that the boots give you.

    Is it a bonus? A feature? A bug? Who knows, really. I wouldn't be surprised either way.

    I'd imagine most dueling leagues would decide against allowing members to utilize the synergy, but for PvM or public dueling I don't really see a reason to avoid using them.

    once you put marrowwalk on your character, check the bone spear or spirit damage before and after u put the boots. if u open skill tree tab, it will not show any points in the bone prison, but if u point your cursor on other skills( b. spirit/spear/shield), they will show the different.

    i never use all the charges in marrowwalk (13 charges) since it's expensive to repair (another alternative is to carry ral rune+flawed gem).

    another thing that i found out when trying different gears, once u put marrowwalk to save points in bp, don't use other item that +bp, cos it will disable the bonus from marrowwalk.
