    Zeal-sacrifice

    When it says that zeal receives bonus from sacrifice 12% damage per level, it means per level of zeal or sacrifice?
    If sacrifice is level 3 the bonus to zeal will be 36%? Or zeal must me level 3 to receive 36% bonus from sacrifice?

    Skill points in sacrifice boost zeal damage, so 3 points lead to a 36% bonus. Only investments of skill points count, skill bonuses don't.

    It means that there is no meaning of having high sacrifice because the skill bonus does not count? why don't they count?

    Is there a point of bonus or not?

    It definitely pays off to maximize sacrifice when using zeal. In fact you are going to maximize sacrifice before boosting zeal beyond level 4 (which gives you the maximum of 5 attacks) because the synergy adds more enhanced damage than zeal itself while you can get the bonus to attack rating (which zeal adds as well) from other sources at first. After sacrifice is maximized, you are maximizing zeal as well, of course.

    The point of limiting it to investments of skill point is to make it not that easy to get synergy bonuses from skill bonuses of equipment.

    I use version 1.07 possibly too old. I tried to use various Horadric cube recipes and but they don't work (example is healing portion + ruby + magic sword doesn't give me a magic leach sword)

    Also I tried to add one point at sacrifice and see the change in the zeal damage but nothing happens.

    Any ideas why this is so?

    Thanks

    Possibly. A lot of the recipes were changed in the updates.

    The synergies which is what they are talking about is only present in 1.10 and later. If you choose to keep playing any of the older patches check out the guides specific to that version. There are a few linked in the Single Player Forum stickies and if you use the wayback machine on the compendium guides site you may find some for the version you want to play.
