PGems and Charms

Hi this is my first post and I did try searching for my answer so if it's available in a guide somewhere then please give me a link to it.

I just started playing D2 after many years and I was just wondering if you need to use a certain kind of charm to combine with 3 perfect gems to better your chances of getting a better charm?

Thanks.

The magic item + 3pgem cube recipe is strictly dependent on the ilvl of the item you are cubing.

I always keep a couple of worldstone keep scs in my stash for re-rolling.

If you don't insist on using Baal/Diablo/Nihlathak GCs, it's enough to keep one GC, as you will find more GCs in high-level areas than gems needed to reroll them.

The best charms for rerolling are th ones that drop from high level monster. Baal/Diablo/Nihlathak GCs are the best because they are the only one that can get +40-45 life, but after that GCs from lvl 85 areas, such as the pits and river of flames, are still pretty good. Lately I have been getting pretty good results with meph GCs...

You don't need L85 monsters for the second best GCs, it's less. BTW, Meph is L87, higher than any non-boss/minion everywhere. His TC selection is worse, but that's not an issue for charms.

To be precise, it's 41-45 life. The next lower +life affix has an affix level of 77 (and for GCs, alvl=ilvl, as their base qlvl=1) which also covers all the other interesting affixes. It should be from somewhere in act 3 hell on.
