How to find items for Insight and Spirit

Basically I am trying to shop Act 2 Normal Merchants for 4-socketed broad swords and voulges with an clvl25 sorc.

Either I am very unlucky, or I just can't get these two items there? Which one is it? Is there an easy way to get them? I don't want to use my socketing quest for this and the socketing recipe requires Amn - I will do that if I have to but prefer to avoid it.

The frustrating part is that the merchants regularly offer the two items with 3 sockets.

You can't get 4 socket swords in normal.

Or maybe you can get them from some monsters in Act5 or something.

According to the Diablo Wiki, weapons can have 1-4 sockets, if dropped by monsters level 26-40.

However, I would suggest scavenging Act V Normal or Act I Nightmare for 4os Swords and Polearms.

Durance 1 is the first possible zone you can get 4-socket weapons. Running Foothills is probably easier. Run around A1 Nightmare, though, and you'll probably find one before too long. I got 4 of them on one character after going about halfway through.

A2 vendor is capped at ilvl 20 so can't generate those items with 4 sockets, A3 is capped at 28 *but* all vendor items ilvl 25+ are magical so it becomes impossible to shop for the item you want.

Fastest way to get those weapons would be (normal) cows, combined with socket recipe or socket quest I guess. Easy run, many drops, just keep any pole / sword that interests you and get sockets in it...

Thanks for all the answers.
Since merchants were no good and I didn't want to use a quest, I tried with the socket recipe and it was successful on the first attempt.
Insight + prayer is just plain sick. I do not remember the last time I had to use a potion. It completely changes the strategy. At clvl70 I have 300 stat points saved - my mana is always full so I need no energy, I have the required strenght from items, I do not die at all. I just stay behind my merc and shoot maxed Fireball and that it.
