    shoudl you always roll 99 charms to skillers?

    I read that you can use the 3 pgem recipe to make charms from baal into +skill charms. I've been working on one for awile with no luck, but I also have a second baal charm:

    Stalwart Grand Charm of Vita
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 83
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 99
    Fingerprint: 0x330aa0af
    +41 to Life
    +63 Defense

    I like this one and use it alot... should you always reroll baal charms or is this good enough?

    Keep rolling the one you have. Baal/Diablo/Nihlathak GCs are used to roll skillers with 41-45 life. If you only seek plain skillers and couldn't care less about the second mods, Act 3 NM (Great Marsh and beyond) are good candidates.

    My general policy is to reroll these charms until I get something at least as valuable as the charm itself. So on East I will keep rolling it until I have a charm worth at least um.

    I would say... Get ALOT AND ALOT of pgems. Keep rolling for hours and hours. And hope for a skller with 40-45 life. If that happens my friend, no need for mf anymore.

    Of course it must be the right skiller. Nobody pays much for a defensive or curse skiller, even for one with 41+ life.

    Looks like that to me. ATMA gives the fingerprint for the item, it's a way to detect dupes.

    I would stock up on pgems and reroll that charm, you could get lucky.

    Maphack or Atma

    I would keep on rollin' that thing. It's pretty weak for a lvl 99 GC.

    if youre on the bnet, you should be able to keep track of where your charms are coming from. I typically throw them all into the cube until I go back into town to get them identified.

    ATMA is a muling program used by many people that play Single Player. Check out the Single Player Forum for more details.

    ATMA doesn't work with B.net characters, so in that case you need to either know where it dropped, or in some cases, you can look at the mods on it to get it's minimum ilvl. For example, if you have a +2 class skills magic amulet, you know it's ilvl is at least 90. In the case of the skillers, you know that a plain GC with 41+ life has a high enough ilvl to be rerolled as a skiller with 41+ life.

    @andylei: There is a link to the ATMA thread in the SPF in my signature.

    What about grand charm from pindleskin? I rerolled one a couple of times and got a "Jav Gc" +32 Life.

    Only GCs from Baal, Nihlathak and Diablo can have 41-45 life. Those from other monsters in act 4-5 and other high-level areas can only have up to 40 life.

    but can they all still be skillers though? the skiller is IMO more important than the life.

    Can any GC in hell be re-rrolled for a potential skiller?

    GC dropped in act3 Nightmare can have skiller mod spawn, but without life iirc.

    ok, so anything dropped from A3 on from anyone can potentially be re-rolled into a skiller?

    I mean, any crap GC, from any crap monster.
