Do psynergies still add bonuses if their past skill level 20?
I am guessing that you are talking about synergies (no 'p' in front).
Synergies are only given from actual skill points that you put into a skill. Since you can only put 20 skill points into a skill, you don't get added synergy bonus even if the skill level has passed level 20.
Short answer, no.
Synergies only work with hard points (points you have put in) invested in the skill so +skill items do not work to increase synergy bonuses. Example, if you put 10 skill points into Bone Wall and have +2 to all/necro skills for a total of 12 in Bone Wall you will still only get 10 points worth of synergy bonus from it.
That being said if you have an item equiped that has charges to a skill and you have not invested any points in that skill then the level of charges will synergize as if you had actually put that many points into the skill. Example, Marrowwalk has level 33 bone prison charges so that will synergize as if you had put 33 points in bone prison.
If I'm not mistaken, this rule has an exception - Druid's Spirit Wolf/Dire Wolf/Grizzly synergies. Points in those skills gave each other HP/Damage bonuses even in 1.09, where there was no synergies. And in 1.09 there was no "hard points only" rule for them. And, as far as I know, they left those skills synergize exactly like they did in 1.09, so the +skills do give extra bonuses to theese skills.
Also the paladin Prayer aura synergizes with +skills, very helpful when using meditation as your main aura.
As a general rule synergies are from hard skill points only, a bug with charged items allows you to get normally unavailable synergies. You gain synergies to every skill even if its a charge, oskill, ctc skill, etc. This is very helpful when creating unusual builds, such as magibarbs and fireball paladins.
its just like skeleton mastery, that also gives a synergie bonus to skel warrior and mage, even with plus to skills but that is just a little different i quess but it works the same
just curious, but do u own "Golden Sun"?
