How on earth did you end up with the runes to make HotO without having even being able to look up simple game values on the Arreat Summit?

Don't know where you get your information, but Flails/Knouts/Scourges can have a maximum of 5 sockets.

Thank you very much made my hoto using the cube recipe for max sockets.
If you're talking about the 1 Ral Rune + 1 Amn Rune + 1 Perfect Amethyst + Weapon recipe, that recipe gives a RANDOM number of sockets, restricted by the maximum it can give. Meaning if you use it on a Flail/Knout/Scourge, you'll have a random number of sockets ranging from 1 to 5.

I too, am wondering how you managed to get the runes for Hoto without looking this up.

I don't believe that's entirely correct. It selects a random number out of 6, and then caps it at the max number. So if an item has a max of two sockets, it's 5x more likely that you get 2 than you get 1.

Yea, sorry, forgot to take that into account. I believe that's right.

Yup my bad. Max number is 5, but it's strange now that i try to remember if i ever seen a 5 socket one i realized i never saw any 5 socket flail/knout or scourge in game, thought i'm not new to game and play for quit some time now.
