    Etheral HOZ --> Can anyone confirm this???

    I've been told by several people now, that if you zod an etheral HOZ, and then remove the zod, that it won't lose durability even after you remove the zod. Is this really the case??? Sounds a bit wacky to me, but hey you never know. Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated.

    I can confirm it's spelled ethereal.

    all items zod'd prior to 1.10 and in the few days after 1.10 was released (literally like 2-3) were permenantly zod'd. That is, if you used the Hel recipe with them, they'd be open socket but keep the mod. This only works/worked with zod'd stuff.

    It's a fun recipe, I personally have 2 ethereal glitched Tucs, an ethereal glitched herald (193%), and an ethereal glitched CoT (509 def, 10% ll). Traded my perf glitched shaft and +2 pal/dru/assy/etc valor though.

    this is a common myth. it still loses durability anyway.

    because you haven't done it for long enough. I tested this in 1.09, and it is still the same in 1.10 judging by my pvp repair costs. trust me, it doesn't protect it.

    If you read this it has been fixed it only worked for a short time after release of 1.10. If you take your ZOD out now you will just lose your rune.

    vindi66 is correct.
    pls don't unsocket your zod unless you don't mind wasting your runes.
    I've tried on 2 1.09 socketed hoz in jan, it has been fixed. best is trade for a glitched one if u fancy one.

    I unsocketed the Zod rune from my ethereal 198ed HOZ last night, and it still held the Indestructible mod. Obviously this has not been patched.

    I've heard that the dura just isn't shown. It still goes down though, but you won't find that out till it -SNAP- breaks
