    Buying a Memory Staff?

    Is it possible to buy a 4 Socket Staff with +3 Energy Shield from a merchant? Or by the time I am high enough level to see ES or the 4 socks on a staff will they all be magical anyways?

    That's kind of correct, white/grey staves can only be bought from normal act 1 and 2 vendors, however normal difficulty vendors have an ilvl cap on their items which is Act 1 = 12, Act 2 = 20, Act 3 = 28, Act 4 = 36, Act 5 = 45.

    Now staffmods depend on the ilvl as follows (taken from the 1.11 IGT) :

    Tier 1: 1-11
    Tier 2: 12-18
    Tier 3: 19-24
    Tier 4: 25-36
    Tier 5: 37+

    ES, which is a Tier 4 spell, would require a minimum ilvl of 25 whereas the max for drognan's wares is 20.

    Moreover the ilvl required for 4 sockets is also higher than the 20 cap if I'm not mistaken.

    Hope that clears it a bit.

    Ya, I kind of figured that 4 socket would end up being the problem. Guess I'll just have to take a look at every staff that drops. Unless I can find someone on west trying to sell one.
