    They start dropping in Act 3 Nightmare (Great Marsh, I believe). Check Corax's Charm Guide in the stickies for more information.

    EDIT: Semi-pwned.

    They will show if you play enough but they are somewhat rare. Valuable, too.

    Most of us cube high level grand charms and perfect gems hoping for skillers. Personally I have *found* fewer than 10 skillers in my years of playing. On the other hand, I have cubed over 80.

    Pick up every flawless gem you find and cube them up to perfect. Likewise save all the grand charms you find in Hell. When you have enough PerfGems, start rolling. I generally stock one Grand Charm in my cube along with three PerfGems. I keep 12 more Perfs in inventory. This gives me five shots at rolling up something good.

    Notice I said something good. You need to be open-minded when cubing charms as sometimes you roll up an awesome charm you weren't looking for. If you roll charms looking ONLY for skillers, you will most likely be disappointed...a lot.

    Here are a few I've rolled up:

    Code:
    Chilling Grand Charm of Sustenance
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 53
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 85
    Fingerprint: 0x3357e9e3
    +34 to Life
    +1 to Cold Skills (Sorceress Only)
    
    Shimmering Grand Charm of Life
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 27
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: **
    Fingerprint: 0x27703dc1
    +18 to Life
    All Resistances +15
    
    Chilling Grand Charm of Balance
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 42
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 71
    Fingerprint: 0xb2417a0b
    12% Faster Hit Recovery
    +1 to Cold Skills (Sorceress Only)
    
    Burning Grand Charm of Sustenance
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 42
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 85
    Fingerprint: 0x6a79f10b
    +23 to Life
    +1 to Fire Skills (Sorceress Only)
    Go for it.

    Re: Skill Grand Charm

    What is the recipe for re-rolling the charm?

    In fact, I dont know that this method even existed in the 1st place.

    Re: Skill Grand Charm

    Is it worth keeping all the grand charms you find? can you not just keep re rolling the same one till you find what you like? Or something good, then move on to the next charm?

    Re: Skill Grand Charm

    3 perfect games + magical item = new magical item of same type.

    Preferably roll grand charms from diablo or baal, as they can get +41 to 45 life on it, which would be sexy :)

    Small charms from nihlatak/baal (not sure if diablo works) are also nice to reroll.

    Patience is a virtue, it took me about a year before I found my first one, and it was a Hexing:rolleyes:

    Try running NM Lower Kurast superchests at /p8. The GC ilvl gives the best chance to roll a skiller plus you will get many gems to reroll. If you do not know what superchests are have a look on the LK HR threads.

    Yeah LK all the way. But run them in Hell difficulty for the chance to get that uber rune or two.

    The superchests are in the two huts nearest the (one or two depending on map) campfires. Don't just poke the superchests. Trust me on that.

    I've found 2 skiller grand charms this far (pally combat and some druid thingie, can't remember which one) and my highest character is in hell act 1.

    So I guess I've been pretty lucky :prop:

    I've found two since I restarted in '06, but have rolled about 18 or so. Definitely save those flawless gems!

    Yes the chests are in the huts to the ne and west.

    They'll be one or two such places depending on map. IE six chests max.

    Indeed. The goal is to get a map with two circles of fire, which makes for 4 huts, and 6 chests.


    Once you've found a good map with 4 huts that you can run fast, just go crazy, get some run/walk items because then you'll run faster across act3, since MF isnt important just get whatever helps you do it faster.

    Yup. The hut to the left will have 2 chests, and the one to the right will have 1 chest and a Weapon rack. Also, there's always an Armor rack above the hut on the left.

    EDIT: LOL. I is slow typer ftl. </3.

    EDIT 2: You have a really bright screen. Tone it down a bit!

    EDIT 3: /players 8 is the most popular option methinks.
