Summons a powerful Valkyrie ally.
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.
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.
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 = 440 * (1 + 0.2 * (Valkyrie level + Decoy Level - 1))
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.
