Description

Summons a powerful
Valkyrie
ally.

Casting Delay: 0.6 seconds

A
Valkyrie
is much more powerful than a Hireling and you can create one whenever you have enough mana.
You can only have one
Valkyrie
at a time.
Valkyries have a glow about them so it's easy to pick them out.

Their attack is a Melee
Spear
attack.
Valkyries can have other abilities as the result of the magic spears and armor they receive when they are created.
These items are level 25 plus 3 per level.

This means that they could potentially have almost any ability normally attached to a
Spear
or armor.
Valkyries work very well with Ranged Amazon attacks such as
Javelin
, Bow, and Crossbows.
A
Valkyrie
is great to use because like a Hireling, they will
Attract
Melee Monsters which will reduce the number of Monsters that are directly attacking you.

The
Valkyrie
will also draw fire from ranged Monsters which further reduces the amount of damage you're taking at one time.
Valkyries are very powerful and become more powerful as you spend more skill points.
Valkyries can also take advantage of Paladin Auras or any other beneficial party member skill or spell.

You can Heal the
Valkyrie
via a Town Healer, a Paladin's
Prayer
Aura or you can simply cast a new
Valkyrie
.
Don't be afraid to recast your
Valkyrie
to reposition her closer to the enemy. With % Mana Steal items, you can quickly recover the Mana.
Combine
Valkyrie
with
Decoy
to reduce the amount of damage you take.

Sometimes Valkyries may have Immunities on higher difficulty. You may wish to recast
Valkyrie
until you get one.
Its armor will have a random color each time you summon it.


Hidden Stats
  • Resistances
    The Valkyries' resistances are equal to their level * 2, to a max of 85. So a level 10
    Valkyrie
    will have +20 Resist All. Valkyries also get a hidden synergy bonus from
    Decoy
    , where every physical point in
    Decoy
    will add +2 Resist All. The whole formula comes out as = (
    Valkyrie
    level + Base
    Decoy
    Level ) * 2
  • Magic Level
    The equipment that a
    Valkyrie
    is spawned with is based on her Magic Level, i.e. the ilvl that her equipment is spawned with, therefore denoting which mods can be spawned. The Magic Level of any
    Valkyrie
    is equal to a base of 25 at level 1, and increases by 3 for each level.
  • Dexterity
    Valkyries receive a bonus of Dexterity of +12 per level. A level 12
    Valkyrie
    will have 144 dexterity points. Valks gain bonuses of attack rating and defense much like any character, but this is not reflected in their skill description.

Valkyrie
Health
Valkyrie
Health = 440 * (1 + 0.2 * (
Valkyrie
level +
Decoy
Level - 1))

Synergy Skills
The
Valkyrie
gains Synergy bonuses equal to the amount of base skill points you have placed in
Critical Strike
,
Dodge
, Avoid, and
Evade
. For example, if you have placed 1 point into Avoid, the
Valkyrie
will have a 24% chance to
Dodge
a missile.

Lore

When a warrior has proven her devotion to Athulua through her brave deeds and exceptional skill in battle, the Goddess shows her favor by granting a spiritual emissary to aid the Amazon.

These emissaries of Athulua are called Valkyrie, and they are the spirits of the greatest heroes from the Amazon people.

The power to summon a Valkyrie is the greatest honor that an Amazon warrior can receive.

It is believed this gift is a sign that your place beside the Goddess is assured when you pass from this world-perhaps even as a Valkyrie.

Can be used to make Runewords:

Thanks to the Passive and Magic skill tree, I feel like I have more customization control over this summon's stats and abilities than all other summons in the game. Easily my favorite summon.

Also, it looks/feels pretty cool to run a Spearazon,
Valkyrie
and an Act 2 Mercenary all at once. Triple spears!!

The Runeword Harmony (missile weapons with 4 sockets) grants a lvl 2-6
Valkyrie
Oskill.

Oskills can be used by any class, but the skill level bonus is limited to 3 levels for the native class. Oskill levels can be increased like native skill levels, including "+skill (native class only)" bonuses.

When summoned, a
Valkyrie
will become equipped with equipment that increases in both number and power at higher skill levels.

At slvl 1, it will spawn with a rare
Spear
and rare
Full Plate Mail
. At higher levels, the
Valkyrie
will spawn with magic
Gauntlets
(slvl 2),
Greaves
(slvl 4), and a
Plated Belt
(slvl 5). By slvl 12, the
Valkyrie
's weapon and equipment will all be exceptional quality items.

The
Valkyrie
will acquire a magic Amulet at slvl 13, and a magic
Circlet
at slvl 14.

At slvl 16, the
Valkyrie
will upgrade its
Chaos Armor
to
Sacred Armor
. At slvl 17, the
Valkyrie
's
Lance
is replaced with a
War Pike
. Over the next 10 levels, the exceptional magic equipment will gradually be replaced with elite-quality rare equipment, culminating with the acquisition of a rare
Tiara
at slvl 27.

These items are rolled at random with an ilvl of 22 + (3*slvl), the standard qlvl for the item type, and an Affix level based on the two.

A
Valkyrie
has extremely potent health regeneration, regaining approximately 7.32% of its health per second. Source. At high slvls and with heavy investment in
Decoy
, this regeneration combined with the
Valkyrie
's potent resistances would result in a minion that is extremely durable.

The
Valkyrie
gains different pieces of Rare and Magic equipment based on her skill level. The items come with random bonuses, so every time you cast the
Valkyrie
the bonuses on her items will be randomly chosen. These exact item stats cannot be seen except with a third party program which I won't mention in here.

Important breakpoints for the damage output on
Valkyrie
are slvl-8 (when she gains her
Lance
) and slvl-17 (upgrade the
Lance
to a
War Pike
).
Important breakpoints for the tankiness on
Valkyrie
are slvl-7 (when she gains her
Chaos Armor
) and slvl-16 (upgrade the
Chaos Armor
to a
Sacred Armor
).
