    Another question about socketing.

    It seems like most of my questions all revolve around wanting the ability to place items in other items...
    ...anyway...

    If I have a magic diadem with both a prefix and a suffix, then use the Act V "socket item" reward, will that over-write the prefix with "Mechanic's", or do the two prefixes coexist somehow?

    The socket quest from Larzuk doesn't give a prefix, it just adds 1 or 2 sockets (on a magical item). Just like normal socketed items don't have the prefix. So it's safe to socket the diadem, just pray for two sockets ;)

    If you look carefully at the Arreat Summit it says that if it already has sockets it won't get even more sockets. So no they won't coexist. Sorry.

    That doesn't really apply. I suppose I should have been more specific and mentioned that the already existing prefix was not one that bestowed sockets.

    Re: Another question about socketing.

    I have been looking for about an hour to find the right place in the forum to ask this question:

    Is it possible to get a 4 os staff that also give + to skill (any or all), and if so, what is the likelyhood?

    Re: Another question about socketing.

    Staffmods (+1-3 indvidual skill) can spawn on low quality, normal, superior, magic, and rare staffs. Sockets and ethereality have no affect on staffmods. If you want details, see the Item Generation Tutorial topic 11. The pertinent information is quoted there. Farther in the thread there is more information about special cases with staffmods.
