Do uniq Items always come unsocketed?

Whenever any item that has sockets drops the sockets will always be clean / empty.

Certain uniques have sockets as part of their modifiers so they will always drop with sockets. eg. Spirit Forge, Black Hades, Mosser's Blessed Circle, Witchwild String, Hone Sundan, Blade of Ali Baba, Crown of Ages, Giant Skull, Spike Thorn, Head Hunter's Glory, Rune Master, Hellrack, Bonehew, Tomb Reaver, Heaven's Light and Djinn Slayer. Actually, that should be all of them. And while I'm at it for sets: Aldur's Stoney Gaze, Aldur's Rhythm, Griswold's Heart, Griswold's Valour, Griswold's Redemption, Griswold's Honour, Immortal King's Will, Immortal King's Stone Crusher and Natalya's Shadow.

nice list...just adding one point here...some of these items will have a set number of sockets...for example a wws will always have 2...others such as the tomb reaver can spawn with 1, 2 or 3 sockets

thank you very much....

i noticed i've got some socketed set items, i have griswold's heart(3s), aldur's rhythm 3s, aldur's stony gaze, 2s and 3s

so in simpler words, certain uniques can have sockets when they spawn, others can never spawn socketed,did i get that right?

actually on arreat summit i can see whether an unique can spawn socketed...i just never noticed it before..

Any given unique will either have sockets, or it will not, 100%. Blade of Ali-Baba will always have 2 sockets, The Grandfather will always have 0. There will never be a Grandfather that drops with any open sockets. Ever. Somebody can put a socket in it w/the quest, but that's different.

Like Oddity said, a Unique is only 100% dropped w/ socket(s) or 100% not dropped w/ sockets. How many sockets a dropped Unique has is up to the Unique that 100% has sockets.
