cube recipe to socket rares, help!

hey guys

3 Perfect Skulls + 1 Rare Item + Stone of Jordan = Add 1 Socket To a Rare Item
Rare Items can only have two sockets. You cannot add sockets to items that don't normally have sockets.

does this recipe will give only 1 socket to a rare item, or, is it random? i mean, can i get 1 or 2 sockets?

thx for the help

Or you could just trade me that Soj and I'll give you one of my socket quests. You always get maximum sockets from Larzuk. That recipe is now just a waste of Soj's. If it only gets one socket it's because the iLvl isn't high enough. For certain items, like crowns, it apparently has to be pretty high.

Oh right. Magic can get up to two. I was thinking of those 20% FCR +3 PNB Necro Helms as rare and getting confused.

its almost likely you'll get 1 sock on rare items, but that isn't always the case...ie my rare druid helm came with 2 socks, then again...thats from id'ing it not from recipes and or larzuk.

You can get a maximum 1 socket from a socket quest or socket recipe. If you want a chance at 2 sockets on a rare then you have to hope it spawns with a Mechanic's prefix. Even then you might still only get 1 socket.

BFD is correct : Mechanic's prifix gives rares 1-2 sockets. I am unsure though if there is such a thing as a rare with all 3 prefix/suffix filled and 'spawning' with 2 sockets or that there is no such thing and all rares that spawn with 2 sockets definitely have the Mechanic's prefix as part of thier maximum 3 prefixes. What you guys think?

All rares that spawn with 2 sockets definitely have the mechanic's prefix. Period.

All rares that spawn with 1 socket definitely have the mechanic's prefix. Period.
