**A few tips about sockets**

This is not a question, but since I see alot of socket questions, I thought of writing a few tips down..

**Larzuk :**Magic items : 1-2 sockets (50/50% chance)

Rare/set/unique : 1 socket

Normal/ethereal : If Ilvl >40 =max sockets for that given item (basically anything found from Act2 NM and forth)

-if Ilvl <40, look here : http://www.diabloii.net/items/sockets-list.shtml

__3 socket elite armors__

Larzuk will give 3 sockets to elite armor, if you do this ; find a broken (low quality/cracked etc) elite armor, repair it to normal with the recipe*, which will set Ilvl to 1, and therefore it will get 3 sockets at Larzuk..

* el+chip+low armor

**Socket recipe :**The game generates a number between 1-6 (no matter what amount of socket is max), so if max is 6, there's 1/6 chance of getting each number. If max is 5 there's 2/6 chance of 5, and 1/6 of the rest. If max is 4 there's 3/6 of 4 and 1/6 chance of the rest..etc..
