    Armor Eth Glitch

    I've never done this before, but I found an eth armor I want to try and glitch.

    I'm not sure how it works. Is it just throw it in the cube with the rest of the recipe to socket an item and hope?

    Let me know please. Thanks.

    Yah, basically. Find a non-socketed Ethereal Armor, toss ingredients, click, and hope. =P

    well its always going to double the defense again, thats the glitch.

    the only part you have to hope for is getting the amount of sockets you want.

    So when eth armor dropes it's Eth Def = Base armor def + 50% eth bonus.
    When you add socets with cube recipe def countes this way:
    Bugged Eth Def = Base def + 50 % eth bonus + 50% bug bonus.
    So final def = Base def * 2,25 times.
    Recipe: 1 Tal Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Topaz + Normal Body Armor = Socketed Armor.
    Socets amount is ranrom: 50% chanse of maximum amount and 50% to others.
    For example: Cubed Armor has 50% of 4 soc, 16.6% of 1 soc, 16.6% of 2 soc, 16.6% of 3 soc.

    Keep in mind to divide the found ethereal armor by 1.5 to discover the base defense. If the base wasn't very high to begin with, it'd be a waste just trying the cube recipe.

    Best armors to cube are Elite ones, since they can reach over 1k def after cube.
