synergy question

synergy question

Hey hey,

So how exactly do you get synergy bonuses? You have to actually place skill points for it to work? Or can you place just one and get the synergy bonuses by wearing tons of plus to all skill items?

Thanks

- Only hard invested skill points count for sinergy purposes.

- There is a bug (feature?) with some charged skills that will grant full sinergy while not having hard skill points in that particular skill. One example is the level 33 Bone Prison on Marrowwalk boots. If you don't have any points in bone prison, the bone prison charges will fully sinergise bone armor, bone wall and other sinergy skills for this one.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

You are correct to the best of my knowledge.

Another 'feature' is Carrion Wind.

I was about to ask about the same thing:
my Paladin has Holy Freeze (lvl 1) and something like 6 points in Resist Cold. So I'd think that a sinergy should work. But if I look to the character's stats the damage only presents the Holy Freeze bonus. So what's the matter? I mean.. the sinergy is really working but it isn't displayed or what?

Ps: have I got to constantly switch between Holy Freeze and Resist Cold to get this sinergy working? Hope not..

Pss: sorry for my English..

The synergy is added to the holy freeze damage when you put a point in resist cold. So the damage displayed is the damage with synergies applied.

The bonus brought about by synergies are passive.

What you are referring to (switching between auras) is known as 'aura flashing' and does not work in v1.10. In v1.09 it was quite common to 'flash' Holy Freeze (as an example) and chill monsters, then switch back to Fanatacism and attack them.

This was due to the 'cycle pattern' of auras which have since been changed.
