Diablo 2 v1.10 Skill Planner is a free service provided by
d2items.com. Use it to explore character possibilities without
wasting skill points.
The Skill Planner will allow you to add a point whether you have the
required prerequisites or not. Don't forget to account for the
prereqs when planning your character.
Everything is pretty self-explanitory. It operates like the
real game interface, for the most part.
Select your character class at the top.
Select the skill tree from the tabs on the right.
Left-Click a skill to add 1 point. Right-Click a skill to
remove 1 point.
Click the Cancel Button Ř to reset all skills to 0.
Some skills have varying stats in different diffculties, such as the
Necromancer's Summons. These are shown as follows:
Level 1 Clay Golem
Life: 100 « Normal Difficulty
Life: 175 (N) « Nightmare
Life: 275 (H) « Hell Difficulty
If Nightmare and Hell difficulties are not listed, the skill does
not vary by difficulty.
Skill bonuses from items do NOT give synergy bonuses. Only
actual points spent in a skill will count for synergy bonuses with
other skills. For example:
You have a Sorceress with:
Level 1 Ice Bolt
Level 1 Frozen Orb (which receives bonuses from Ice Bolt)
If you had 5x +1 Skill Cold Skill Charms, the skills would both
independently operate at level 6. However, Frozen Orb will not
receive a level 6 Ice Bolt bonus. It will only receive a level
1 Ice Bolt bonus because you only have 1 real point spent in Ice
Bolt. So, you'd basically have Level 6 Frozen Orb with a level
1 synergy bonus. If you wanted to increase the synergy bonus,
you'd need to spend more real points in Ice Bolt.
To account for this, there are boxes on each skill tab, as well as
one at the top-right (for + all skills). Each box should be
used for skill bonuses from items. If I were going to check
the skills for the above mentioned Sorceress, I'd put 1 point into
Ice Bolt and 1 point into Frozen Orb, then plug in 5 to the + [ ] to
Cold Skills box. If I'd put Ice Bolt at 6 by adding skill
points directly to it, Frozen Orb would show stats for a level 6
synergy. Use the boxes to properly calculate synergy bonuses.
