It is a threshold jewel that enhances Summon Skeletons and Vaal Summon Skeletons.

Summoned skeleton mages cast fire, cold or lightning projectiles (affected by Faster Casting Support or Spell Echo Support linked to Summon Skeletons).


  • The mod on this Jewel Summon Skeletons can Summon up to 15 Skeleton Mages does not override the mod Maximum (5-8) Summoned Skeletons of the Skill Gem (Maximum (17-36) Summoned Skeletons for the Vaal skill), so a source of increased Maximum Summoned Skeletons is required to reach the cap of 15 Mages.
  • Summoned Skeleton Mages are counted as Summoned Skeletons.
  • If the player increases the maximum Summoned Skeletons to more than 15, the modified Skill Gem will summon Skeleton Warriors after summoning 15 Skeleton Mages.
