    ETHERAL Crystal sword UPP??

    What happens if you upgrade a rare crystal sword that is etheral, all the way up to phase blade elite version. The Phase blade is indestructable tagged but will it tag on the etheral sword???

    Anyone have a good answer.

    Nån som fattar vad jag menar. Ifall indestructable tag kommer ligga på svärdet när jag uppgraderar den till phase blade?

    Phase blades simply don't have durability, so an ethereal phase blade will never break. A common trick with rare crystal swords and alike.

    So the answer is yes. If you upgrade an ethereal rare crystal sword to a phase blade it will remain etheral and become indestrucible.

    It won't say "Indestructible", however. It just wont show durability, just like bows and crossbows, and thus never break. It still keeps its ethereal 50% damage and -10 str/dex bonus. A good ethereal rare phase blade is one of the most stylish weapons in existance.

    If you use the socket quest, you will only get one socket like any other rare item. A rare could in theory come with the Mechanic's prefix with 2 sockets, though - that's the only way you'd be able to get more than one socket on it.

    Ah ok.. I was thinking of 2 different questions in the op.. one rare and one not rare..

    If the crystal sword was ethreal, not rare, could it be upped to phase blade ethreal, then given a socket recipe for a chance at 5 os?

    Only rare and unique items can be upped, so no.
