- Skeletal Mages spawn with random magic wands of normal (white) quality. Upgraded Skeletal Mages spawn with random magic wands of rare (yellow) quality.
- Skeletal Mages will not use weapon attacks with their wands. They will only attack using spells.
- Upgraded Mages, with their AoE spells, are generally better suited for mowing down large mobs. However, the player may find that keeping 3 regular mages (by choosing both Skeletal Mastery mods) provides higher damage against single targets (elites, super-uniques, etc.). The spells of the regular mages have high damage and also inflict useful debuffs (root, freeze, stun, slow) that upgraded mages do not.
Pros and Cons
- Can summon up to three basic mages, or up to two advanced mages.
- Does not benefit much from the Dark Summons Lore skill unless Hardened silver mod is taken.
