+3 summons wand?

i was just wondering if there exists a +3 to summoning skills wand?
i've been shopping for one for a few weeks now and i run across either a +3 to curses or +3 to poison and bone about every other game, but never a +3 to summons. also, can you get + to skeletons on wands, i saw a + to mages but not normal skellies.

do these wands not exist or am i just really unlucky?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure there is a +3 summoning wand. I think it's a golemlord's wand..(at least, that's the prefix for shrunken heads and amulets) I've seen plus to raise skeleton a bunch of times, too. Hope that helps.

I have one. You need to be around level 65 until they show up in the shops. At later levels, you can't get +to skills on lvl 1 skills - this goes for any class items, like claws or druid/barb helms. Its a shame and I don't know why they made it this way.

This wand might help you, its the unique Arm of King Leoric tomb wand:

Required Strength: 25
Durability: 15
Base Weapon Speed: [-20]
+50% Damage To Undead
10% Chance To Cast Level 2 Bone Prison When Struck
5% Chance To Cast Level 10 Bone Spirit When Struck
+ (1.25 Per Character Level) 1-123 To Mana (Based On Character Level)
10% Faster Cast Rate

looks like +5 to raise skeleton and +4 to raise mage to me.
hope this is what you were looking for.

I shopped one off Malah with +3 summoning skills, +3 summon resist, +3 revive, +3 skele mastery and like 170 fire dmg. Only thing is it cost a LOT of gold, I think over a million. @[email protected]

That's the nicest shop-bought one I've ever seen. I've never paid much attention to the prices, but the Golemlord's wands (+3 summoning prefix) I've seen only run up to 600K. I can't recall ever seeing one that costly, but then I'd pay that for it without second thought. Extra and higher level skills will run the cost up.

If you're seeing +3 poison/bone and +3 curses, then you should be able to get +3 summons... so, yeah, you're just unlucky.

The best way to wand-shop is to find a place where you can run out of town and back in to the mage vendor quickly. (Try Act 2 and remake the game until Drognan is next to the entrance.) Then check the wand list. If it doesn't have what you want, run out, then in again. Repeat until you get what you're looking for. Be warned that it may take a while, perhaps as much as an hour.

That wands pretty sexay. I recently found a +3 p+b skills 20 fcr and some other mod wand from akara cause I felt like it.

However, I think getting an arm of king leoric would actually be a lot cheaper and more effective.

edit: My dream summoner wand.
necromancer's (+2 nec skills)
great wyrms (+90 mana)
mojo (+2 necro summoning)
of the
giant (+15 str)
magus (20% fcr)
fast repair (no costly repairs)

It's rare of course.
