    ethereal uniques

    hi everyone. this post is maybe suited for trading values forum, but i thought it has more general meaning so ill post my question here.

    what i want to ask is if ethereal uniques that cannot be soketed have any value. i mean not only trading value, but their use in game. ethereal helms, armors, shields and weapons u can soket with zod to make them indestructable if u value them so high to spend a zod. but if u find ethereal unique belt, or gloves or boots,do they have any use? which characters/players will want them? or this ethereal uniques are total junk and go to charsi immediately?

    Well, that's debatable. :smiley:
    For example ethereal Sandstorm Treks are more worthy than the normal ones, because they have auto-repair mod.
    Also, there are the collection items which are worth A LOT being perfect and ethereal (for example Verdungo's belt). But, in general, if they have bad stats and no auto repair, and also can't be socketed, they are worthless.

    indeed, it's all about the self-repair mod.

    The ones that spontaneously come into my mind are:

    Sandstorm Trek boots
    Titan's Revenge javelins


    related to this: uniques that have the indestructible mod cannot spawn ethereal.

    ...unless they always spawn ethereal.

    Other than a handful of set uniques, no indestructible items can spawn ethereal.

    thnx for replies

    considering not many uniq belts/boots/gloves are really good, most character builds utilize almost same items with few options, even less of them are usefull if ethereal, so maybe someone can provide short list of eth belt/glove/boot items that are in value?

    Yeah, but that was just because it was a collectable.

    Consider weapons suitable for Mercenaries here too. Tomb Reaver, Reaper's Toll, Bonehew spring to mind.

    Vamp Gaze, out of the same group. CoT can also be used.

    Re: ethereal uniques

    I think the question was really only directed to non-Zodable items and indeed Titans is the only other item.

    Eth Skullders Ire is a nice armor. In the weapon department: Hone Sundan if the ED is high, Lacerators for some novelty builds or a PI solution, already mentioned Titans, maybe some other I can't think of right now.

    Re: ethereal uniques

    Ethereal caster weapons are not too bad either. I mean, how often do you use your Oculus, Death's Fathom or Death Web to whack monsters? Besides, style points.
