    4-socket Flails can appear anywhere the monsters are level 25 or over.

    The best places to find them are in Act 5 Normal and Act 1 NM. You can use the weapon-socketing Cube recipe to get a 1/2 chance of 4 sockets on a Flail from monsters with levels 25-39.

    Anywhere you can kill lots of monsters will also increase your chance - try removing all your MF gear and slaughtering the Normal Cows, they should be pretty good for it too.

    I take it you mean that Act 5 Normal through Act 1 NM has the 25-39 monsters I need to kill? Also, does the same 1/2 chance apply to the add socket reward from Act 5, or does it add the maximum sockets possible?

    Try cow level. They are full of crap items to most players, but nevertheless satisfy particular needs to individual players.

    terribly fustrating..i went to dozens of cow runs closest i came to a 4 socket one was a 3 socket scourge..so..i went to a trade room asking if anyone has a 4 socket flail..this amazon came up and offered me hers..i offered her Skulder's and carrion wind ring ( all extras) and she turned me down flat..i'm confused..wat is the value of a 4 socket flail??? sigh...for all that we know it might be going for a few SoJs nowadays.. :scratch:

    Easiest way

    Find a Normal White Flail, Do the Socket Quest

    and u get 4 Socket Flail, not superior tho then u get 5
