    Re: Ebug

    The ethereal bug works on all armors. So Elite ethereal high defense armor and good high res ethereal Pala shields are desirable. Sometimes some swords can be useful ethereal as well since you can equip the act 5 Merc with one. I normally thought talking about it is perfectly normal since is implemented in the game (accidental or not), but I do seem to recall someone getting a warning for posting about it. I trade on Europe and ebugged armors are traded there, so I guess it's allowed after all.

    edit: just be sure to PM the corresponding Mod of a Trade Forum to avoid any trouble at all. But it might already be in the stickies atop each Trade Forum.

    You cannot use the cube recipe to socket superior armors.

    Re: Ebug

    Somehow, no one has yet actually written what the eth bug is.

    When socketing an ethereal armor in the cube (random 1-6 sockets capped at the maximum for the item at it's ilvl), the ethereal defense bonus is applied twice: defense*1.5*1.5 = defense*2.25. This only occurs in 1.11 and is a side effect of fixing a bug that existed in 1.10.

    You can only ebug ethereal, unsocketed, nonsuperior armor.
