    has all the recipes

    You just put the desired ingredients into the cube, then press the cubing button.

    And yes, you can improve the yellow named items. (uniques/rares) The recipes for them are at the bottom of the link page.

    The item type is upgraded.

    1 Ral Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Amethyst + Normal (Basic) Rare Armor = Exceptional Rare Armor

    Well I have a set of Dragonglow dragon scale mail and I wanted to make it better so if I up grade it does it change its current stats or does it keep its current stats and just add to them?

    do they also work on belts, gloves, helms or are they just for weapons and body armor?

    It works with any armor (shields, gloves, belts, etc...). Just use the armor recipes.

    If you upgrade something, the stats would remain, but the base defense (for the armor) would increase.
    And so if the rare had an enhanced defense mod, it will add to the new higher base defense.

    So I have Dark Glow Ring Mail:
    Defense 98
    100% enhanced Defense
    50 defence vs. Mele
    5 max poision resist
    5 max cold resist
    5 max lightning resist
    5 max fire resist

    All resists 10
    3 to light

    Now I have all the gems I need so what might happen to my mail?

    it would become a darkglow linked mail.
    the defense would change to be from 100 to about 316-344.
    also the requirements would change.
    74 Str Required
    Clvl Req: 25

    somewhere around there. the rest of the stats would remain the same. these being:

    100% enhanced Defense
    50 defence vs. Mele
    5 max poision resist
    5 max cold resist
    5 max lightning resist
    5 max fire resist

    All resists 10
    3 to light

    I upgraded my HoZ with an Um rune in it and it stayed so I imagine any item would keep what's socketed into it.
