It´s what the character needs at the different times of their career. My most used types (except for those you can buy in act 2 Normal) are:

2-socketed Tower Shield
3-socketed Knout (also look for Crude ones, because they are easy to put 3 sockets in)
2-socketed Cutlass
2-socketed War Fork or Mancatcher
2-socketed lightweight exceptional/elite armors
4-socketed Gothic Plate or Full Plate (in early NM)
3-socketed helms (any)

which items can have 6 sockets(nonethereal)? I still didn't find any... I found thresher,stygian pike,colossus blade,ogre axe,etc. with 5 sockets but still didn't find any item with 6 sockets

Check the Arreat Summit for full listing of items and how many sockets each can have.

I pick up everything :)
a 3soc small crescent became my mid lvl weapon of choice for ages (crescent moon RW)

and i currently have a 3soc scourge that im hunting down the last rune for fury...looks likeit'll have nice damage. Ya never know when something will come of use (now if i could only find a use for that 5 socket war axe...)

If you don't have much wealth, you can also try keeping all white phaseblades/berserker axes and try to cube them for 5 sockets.
Those two are the most sought after for griefs and people often pay nice for them.

Not to change the topic or anything, but what char are you using that Fury Scourge for? I recently found a 3soc 15%ed Scourge and I'd like to use it for something.

Another thing to look out for is a 3soc 15%ED Breast Plate. And is a 3 socket Troll Nest worth keeping?

A couple of others worth checking are:
White barb helms with 3 battle orders mods that can get 3 sockets...great delerium helm.
Necro wands with 3 bonespear or 3 bonespear and 2 bonespirit or any other nice necro skills.

And is a 3 socket Troll Nest worth keeping?
Yes 3 socket troll nests trade quite well also
