I have been playing a basic summoner on non-ladder battle.net (europe) for a while.
And i think that some items i use are not the best possible items for this build.
There are 3 parts of my equipment which i think could get higher +skele / + skele masteries skils:
-weapon, is the King Leorics staff the best possible? and what would be the best possible mods for a necro weapon?
-head, i currently have a random +2 skill head, but i assume that a magic +3 summon circlet would give the highest +skills here.
-shield (shrunken head), this is the real question, what would give a better boost in skills for summoning then the standard +3 skill shield described in all guids.
It seems to me that a magic shield with +3 skele and +3 skele masteries and +3 summon skills should be possible. Is this shield possible, and if yes would some one have any clue on where to find it? and if it can be traded for, since thus far i have not seen any.
also are there other options ? which give more then the standard +3 skill shields.
This i found in some other thread
if i read this correctly then u take some gold (or yellow?) shrunken head and cube it with 6 perfect skulls and one then has a chance to get +3 skele, +3 skele masteries and +2 summon skills as max. Thus a +5 summon skill max.Shields with +5:
A rare necro head with a high qlvl. Then combined in the cube with the 6 pskull recipe to lower the ilvl to 24 or less. This shield gets high level prefixes, and low level staff mods.
Warning, very low chance of getting this, and your character has to have the right level, and you have to have the right head. Even then, it's very hard to get this. Many pskulls required, together with patience and luck
