I have my enchantress up to level 25, and I don't know which skill to give her? Any thoughts?

Also is there a skill reset later in the game?

You can right click on her picture and press retrain at any time, so just try out all the skills and see which ones you like with no consequences! –  Mr Smooth Jun 21 '12 at 17:22

This duplicates neither of those, though his incidental inquiry of whether a respect is possible is duplicated, sure, the strenghs/weaknesses post does not discuss specific ideal skill selections. –  LessPop_MoreFizz Jun 21 '12 at 19:23

@bwarner I fail to see how a question asking for help with a choice with a maximum of fifteen possible outcomes is too open ended. Honestly, even a skill by skill breakdown is well within the scope of a reasonable question. –  LessPop_MoreFizz Jun 21 '12 at 19:47

All followers can Retrain their skills at any time for free.

The skills I use on mine are Charm, Powered Armor, Erosion and Mass Control. I chose Mass Control to have fun seeing big monsters turn into chickens, as this was a non-WD character - however as a recommendation, I'd actually suggest Focused Mind at that level.

Charm can be very useful in situations where the lead monster of a pack suddenly stops and turns around to beat its buddies, in a narrow corridor - thus buying extra time to spam AoE distance attacks. Its alternative, Forceful Push is something I have not tried yet, could be useful if the followers really do full weapon damage on using their specials (normally they do a pitiful fraction like 12.5%)

Powered Armor helps with all attacks not just non-projectile; and also a lot of 'projectile' attacks can't be reflected, I believe this is the generally superior choice for this slot over Reflect Missiles, unless you want to micro and switch them based on area.

Erosion will greatly help with dps in some situations and is useful for single enemies as well as for groups, and has a shorter CD than Disorient.

Focused Mind is an AoE aura adding 3% IAS. Blizzard even had to nerf IAS so you know its a good stat ;). The alternative of Mass Control is not as helpful, I consider it more of a novelty factor.

Mass Control has saved my life on many an occasion. If you're in a group setting, Focused Mind may be more useful for raw DPS, but if you're interested in staying alive, Mass Control can be a lifesaver. The same goes for Disorient. –  Panic Bomb Jun 21 '12 at 22:17
