Max skill boost?

You can only raise a skill to 20, but with items you can boost it.

I'm looking for what items (+Xskills a person could equip to a charecter to boost their skills. Is there a cap? (can only be boosted to... 30 for example)

Other than unique charms, do others spawn with +skills?

Re: Max skill boost?

depends on skill but generally:
+3 hat
+3 ammy
+3 weapon
+2 armor
+2 shield
+1 belt
+1 ring
+1 ring
+1 anni
+3 torch
+9 skillers
+2 shrine
+1 battle command
= 32

these will vary based on skill however depending on the class for things like druid and barb hats, sorc orbs, necro heads, etc. there are also some odd skills gained on gloves and a few on boots, but without knowing which skill/class you mean, that's tops

I believe that the level of a skill is capped at 99, though the highest level of a skill that can currently be reached without cheating is 62 (with one of an Assassin's Martial Arts).

Other than unique charms, do others spawn with +skills?
Yes, many, such as Harlequin Crest (+2 To All Skills) and The Oculus (+3 To Sorceress Skill Levels).

If you are only after a Specific skill:

+3 Helm
+3 Amulet
+6 Main hand (+3 tree, +3 skill mod)
+6 Off hand (+3 tree +3 skill mod, Assassin onl)
+1 Gloves (if the skill in question is fire)
+1 ring x2
+1 Belt
+2 Boots (if the Skill in question is Shadow discipline, which is exclusive with the gloves)

+9 Skiller GCs (to a tree)
+1 Annihilius
+3 Hellfire Torch

+2 Skill Shrine
+1 Battle Command

leaving you with a total of +38, provided that its a Fire trap, or +39 if it is a shadow discipline, but it is only achievable in a few skills and not accross the tree.

Re: Max skill boost?

A bone armor staffmod cannot occur on +3 necro heads. It's on tier 1 which needs a low ilvl to occur, but +3 PB needs an affix level of 60 . The only way to get a low ilvl with a high alvl is producing an elite head with a low ilvl, but there's no way to achieve that with a mjagical item. It works with a repeated application of the 6 pskulls recipe on a rare item by a low-level character, but rares cannot have +3 PB, only +2, so you are back where we already were with bone spear :p

Re: Max skill boost?

So +42 seems the top. Yay for assassins, eh?

I don't believe so.

Yes, many, such as Harlequin Crest (+2 To All Skills) and The Oculus (+3 To Sorceress Skill Levels).
I meant charms. Other than Annihilus, and a Hellfire Torch, what charms can have +skills?

Can you stack skill shrine +skills?

Whats considered good +skills for a circlet to have? (found a +2 Paladin skills with resitances)

Re: Max skill boost?

They have GC Skillers (Grand Charm Skillers) so yes. goes to one tree of skills and is always +1.

As for circlet... +3 skills to the tree of your choice.

it's generally considered that a good all around +2 class circlet tops a +3 tree circlet. exceptions are for single tree sorcs like a full light sorc, blizzer, or enchantress.

yes, but you lose a lot of real world effectiveness and survivability to stack those +skills on. a well rounded character beats out a "glass cannon" most of the time.

I don't believe so.
they do, but you lose better gear choices and +skills by equipping enough of trangs to get the +fire stuff. you're better off with other items

I meant charms. Other than Annihilus, and a Hellfire Torch, what charms can have +skills?

Can you stack skill shrine +skills?
only anni has +all skill. torch is class specific. only one shrine of any type at a time.


+all skills can be had and are helpful for characters using CtA or other 0skill items. here's a list:
+2 shako/andy's
+2 mara's
+3 hoto
+2 enigma/coh
+2 spirit shield
+1 soj/bk
+1 soj/bk
+1 arach
+1 anni
+1 battle command
+2 shrine

for a total of +14 all skills. bear in mind that most 0skills will take the spot of one of these pieces of equipment. so you're unlikely to get all 14.
