    Hlp on Whtie wand...

    Im creating a posion/ bone necro, and i need hp on this wand for my character.
    I have been reading reviews, and info on this runeword, and it says it uses, Dol and PO rune....but on the pictures i've seen it says DolIo...I'm getting confuessed...which rune is it? because i was aware Po is not a rune.

    another question....I've collected both Dol and Io Rune, and now i just need a good 2 sockated wand...anything in particular i should be looking for? and where is the best place to find this type of wand? can i buy a sockated wand from an NPC?

    Thanks. :teeth:

    You are correct, the runeword is DOL and IO, the lvl 31 req rune and the lvl 35 req rune.

    the best bet to get a wand for this runeword is to find one: either with no sockets, or with 2 sockets to begin with.

    Shopping from npcs could get you a 2socketed wand, but it would be a lower level one (wouldn't have any decent +skills on it).

    someone else'll have to reply with what items CAN'T get 2 sockets... I know that a yew wand cant'... and I think 1 more type of normal wand can't, but most other types can.

    Petrified Wand
    Tomb Wand
    Grave Wand
    Polished Wand

    I was also wondering...if i found a 1 sockated wand, could i add a socket to it from the frist quest in act 1, and would it still have the effect of the white wand?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately no. When an item is socketed already, you cannot add more. Found a +2 Bone Spear wand with one socket. The agony!

    FYI
    In the first days of the expansion, blizzard couldn't figure out what they called a couple of runes. 1 was IO, which was listed as PO

    Thanks for the correction on the runes, and for the socketed question i had...

    And although I would appreciate that wand, im not on hc, thanks neways

    Edit: p.s. I am desperate on finding a socketed wand (have been looking for a couple of days for a good one, best I found was a +1 to golem mastery, which isn’t that useful) so I was wondering, which would be the best NPC to buy from? And what difficultly/act…thanks

    If you have the time just shop for wands in norm act2. I made my white wand out of a +3 to bone spear, +2 to CE, and +1 to bone spirit. I have seen other with pluses to poison skills as well. It may take some time to find what you are looking for.

    So the odds of finding a +2 to nec skills on a wand from a shopkeeper isn't very good?

    I finally found a Dol rune, and i'm looking for an Io. meanwhile...searching for that perfect wand still progresses. I do have a Boneshade, but it's not a perfect one, and it's not available til clvl 79, which is the end game for most Bonemancer builds. I'd have to reccomend Blackhand Key as a reasonable substitute til Boneshade or til you can make that White wand.

    You can find several +2 nec skill wands. The problem is that they are already magical so cannot be socketed or used for rune words.

    General Question: Were the wands listed above the correct ones for Whiting? I read somewhere that some wands, like yew wands, cannot use the White runeword.

    The wands I mentioned can be used to create the White (funny Star Trek).

    Slightly OT: Can Bone helms come with +2 Nec skill mod? I know circlets can and do, but I'm a bigger fan of the Bone headed look than pasty faced mcgee.

    All wands offered for sale by vendors past act 2 of normal difficulty spawn magical. All of them. Magical wands cannot be used in runeword recipes, and are thus not viable candidates for white. Act 2 normal is the best (really, the only) place to shop for a +3 bone spear wand. If you can find a bone wand with +3 bone spear, just trot it off to Larzuk and make him socket it. Stuff in a dol and an io, and you have a shiny new wand.

    I've got a wand already "whited" with +2 spear, +1 spirit, and +3 decrep auto mods that you can have if you want. I'm on East SC ladder. Reply here if interested and we can set up a meet.

    Oh BTW, it's ethereal and only does 3-8 damage, so if you plan on meleeing this ain't the wand for you.
