    Caduceus R/W Questions

    I'm looking to make a R/W in a caduceus.
    Before I decide which one to try I have a few questions.
    1. Can a 4 or 5 sock caddy spawn ETH?
    2. What skills can be found on a caddy? Does it go to +3 on a certain skill? and can there be more than 1 skill bonus on the caddy?
    3. Can I trade for one easily?

    This will be for PvM only and probably for a zealer but I am considering other options. ( Maybe an avenger if I use beast)

    I'm guessing the only viable r/w's for a caddy are Beast , Eternity and HoJ.
    Although I've been checking some of the original r/ws out and I might consider Fury. Silence looks great for everything except damage.

    If only Doom could be made in a caddy :sad2:

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated!!

    1. Yes they can spawn Ethereal, you can also look for a good one with no sockets and Larzuk will give you 5.

    2. I don't believe any paladin skills don't spawn on scepters; scepters can spawn with up to 3 skills, with +1-3 each.

    3. For a good one? No, this is probably one of the most difficult things to trade for. I spent about 3 months looking for a trade before finding a +3 Holy Shield War Scepter in Cows to make my CtA in.

    If you do find a nice Ethereal Caddy I do suggest Eternity, major style points for that as well.

    Besides that you can make a Beast and use Concentration or Conviction as your main aura; I don't know if I would use HoJ on anything other than a Holy Fire Auradin (Torchadin) though.

    It's possible, just that some weird glitch has to happen for HS to even appear on a scepter, which is why 3 HS CTAs can go for 50+ HRs

    So to trade a eth caddy with + skills or not would take a while?

    How can Larzuk give you 5 sockets in one weapon?

    Yeah, it's possible, but extremely rare.

    Larzuk gives you the maximum number of sockets an item can have (assuming its ilvl is also high enough to support max sockets). A caduceus can have up to 5 sockets. Therefore, a caduceus will get 5 sockets when socketed with Larzuk.

    Yea but i thought that when you do the quest and do add socket, it only adds one socket to the item, no the maximum.

    This is true, sort of...

    Any white (normal) or grey (eth) item will get a max number of sockets depending on ilvl - I think any Caddy will get max.

    A blue (magic) item will get 1 or 2 sockets from Larzuk, 50-50 chance.

    A rare (yellow) or gold (unique) will get 1 socket only.

    Another way to get sockets is from the cube - check the AS if you want to know the formulas. Basically, its the same as above except magic can get a few more and the white/grey items get random number.

    PS - If you can get BotD or Silence into a Caddy, let me know...

    No, it adds the maximum number of sockets to a white item, which is what I just said....
