    Non-superiour socketing a waste?

    For example a Grief in a phaseblade... Would it be a waste to make it in a regular 5os pb instead of one with 10% ed? Does the extra payment for a nice base weapon come back in the extra value of the end-weapon?

    isnt the answer obvious?
    Phase Blade: 31 to 35 (33 Avg)
    with 10% ed from being superior its: 34 to 38 (36 Avg)

    compare this 3 points of damage to at least 340 damage the grief is always doing and you have your answer.

    as far as trading value goes the answer is even simpler: the better the overall weapon and runeword stats, the greater the value. the variable grief stats are still more important though than a couple points ed on the base weapon.

    Thanks, I thought the extra ED would stack on the end damage calculation or something like that... I'll just try my regular 5os PB and hope for some nice stats :)

    i believe theres a way to give a normal white item ( for example a zweihander ) 15% ed or such ed with the cube. and it will also gives sockets. thats what ive heard i havnt researched enough to see how to but if you find out share it with us :)

    Not possible. It is possible to "repair" low-quality, cracked etc items with a recipe, but then the result is a normal, non-superior version. The defense on items with defense (not weapons) gets rerolled. Ilvl is set to 1.
