***Decoy [#t05bcf58]
:Required Level|1

:Pros|Effectively attract melee and ranged enemies. Recastable.
:Cons|No offensive ability.

***Inner Sight [#md2d618b]
:Required Level|1
:Prerequisites|'''None'''
:Difference from the LoD version|Reduces enemy physical resistance and breaks physical immunities. Reduces enemy defense not by value but by percentage. Improved skill radius.
:Pros|Stacks together with Necromancer curses, may be used with amplify/decrepify to lower physical resists further, and better break physical immunes, with lifetap for better leeching, with Confuse for better crowd control, or any other curse you may wish to try.
:Cons|Quickly diminishing returns make large investments in Inner Sight of little value (though investing in its synergies is quite effective).
:Notes|It proved &color(red){Inner Sight stacks together with Slow Missiles.}; Both skills use the same sparkling overlay, but both effects work.

***Eagle Eye [#b56db5c9]
:Required Level|30
:Prerequisites|'''Critical Strike (1), Penetrate (18)'''
:A new ES skill|A pseudo aura (like Assassin's Burst of Speed) which grants Enhanced Damage at the cost of IAS.
:Pros|The damage bonus is huge. Especially works well with Dance of Death (Whirlwind) which isn't affected by off-weapon IAS.
:Cons|The IAS penalty can be problematic with most builds. (Skill IAS is difficult to negate with Item IAS.) Overwrites and is overwritten by BoS, Fade and Shadow Armor.
:Notes|Can't be used with BoS and Fade, but it's useful to use oskill BoS/Fade to cancel the remaining duration of Eagle Eye. If you use Dance of Death and Eagle Eye, and like to switch to Shadow Strike to kill PIs, you will want to cancel the effect of Eagle Eye, for example.
Eagle Eye's IAS penalty is Skill IAS, which is difficult to negate with Item IAS. But the Skill IAS from Fanaticism and Annihilation effectively negates the penalty.
Crossbows may be better than bows to use with Eagle Eye. Crossbows can't attain 2 frame Strafe, but attaining 3 frame Strafe is possible with Eagle Eye, and their base damage is very good.

:Cons|

:Prerequisites|'''Critical Strike'''

:Difference from the LoD version|Linear returns instead of diminishing returns.
:Pros|Piercing attack is very useful and rarely appears on items.
:Cons|Capped at 100%. You may like to attain 100% pierce for ranged builds as soon as possible. But if you can't use PlugY, there is a possibility of overinvestment.
