    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)

    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.

    Are 6 socket Ogre mauls worth anything?

    Not really. 6 socketed runewords are Last Wish, BotD, and Silence, and I can't imagine anyone wanting them in an ogre maul.

    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.

    Yes 3 socket troll nests trade quite well also
