A low level challenge that rewards you with a new skill and other useful midgame perks.

Go to the Kurast 3000 BA uberlevel on any difficulty and kill the Ennead Necromancer bosses until your Class Charm drops.

Name Icon Effect

skill icon The basilisk snake of Skartara is a devious creature whose bite turns flesh to stone. A skilled amazon warrior may carry a few to the battlefield in a leather bag for an unexpected surprise.
Effect: throws snakes that turn enemies to stone
skill icon An assassin knows very well that most mages are male and many spend their life in seclusion without seeing a woman. Some who have trained in these particular arts can also employ this strategy on the battlefield.
Effect: burns an unholy female sign on the ground in life stealing flames
skill icon Running away is for the weak. A barbarian warrior who runs is easy prey. One who stands his ground in the face of death may survive, for he is the one the ancestral spirits will favour.
Passive effect: avoids damage when standing still and improves hit recovery
skill icon The fruits of the Glor-An-Fhaidha, the mystical tree of life, can bring back mortals from the brink of death. Aside from their healing effect on humans and other animals, the juice of the Glor-An-Fhaidha's fruits can be applied to armour, making it as hard as the bark of a thousand year tree.
Passive effect: provides a bonus to maximum life and defense
skill icon The dragon god of death Trag’Oul takes his faithful under his wings, turning aside blades and arrows. This powerful spell requires total concentration and is easily broken when the caster is disturbed.
Effect: press and hold to protect self and nearby minions
skill icon Like a deus ex machina, the paladin of Zakarum descends upon the battlefield, his mere appearance chilling his heathen enemies to the bone.
Effect: teleport to target location and freeze enemies
skill icon The symbol of the ancient witch queen is a specially crafted conductive adamantine moon crescent that accumulates ambient energy from the magic in the environment, releasing it as a healing pulse when broken.
Effect: create a symbol in the cube that instantly heals life and mana
