Help needed for socketing items for merc My merc's weapon has sockets, but I am unable to socket it while it's on my merc. If I socket the weapon in my inventory then my merc can't use it any more. Both the weapon and the socketed item are below the level requirement. The same thing happened to 2 different characters that I started. I just came back to play D2 again after the 1.10 patch. Is this the way it works after the patch? Please let me know what I am doing wrong. It's been a quite while since I last played. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
