    Question on upgrading and crafting

    Hi i'm new to this forum, but i always see people say upgrading shaftstop, venomward etc. How do you actually do that?
    For crafting, i saw the crafting page the items arent that nice since many uniques overide it why do people still craft?

    To answer one of your questions, you can upgrade uniques and rares by using some horadric cube recipes:

    Uniques:

    1 Ral Rune + 1 Sol Rune + 1 Perfect Emerald + Normal Unique Weapon = Exceptional Version of Weapon

    1 Tal Rune + 1 Shael Rune + 1 Perfect Diamond + Normal Unique Armor = Exceptional Version of Armor

    1 Lum Rune + 1 Pul Rune + 1 Perfect Emerald + Exceptional Unique Weapon = Elite Version of Weapon (Ladder Only)

    1 Ko Rune + 1 Lem Rune + 1 Perfect Diamond + Exceptional Unique Armor = Elite Version of Armor (Ladder Only)


    Rares:

    1 Ort Rune + 1 Amn Rune + 1 Perfect Sapphire + Normal (Basic) Rare Weapon = Exceptional Rare Weapon

    1 Ral Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Amethyst + Normal (Basic) Rare Armor = Exceptional Rare Armor

    1 Ral Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Amethyst + Normal (Basic) Rare Armor = Exceptional Rare Armor

    1 Ko Rune + 1 Pul Rune + 1 Perfect Amethyst + Exceptional Rare Armor = Elite Rare Armor


    Edit: Btw, welcome to the forums

    Yes, if it something says ladder only, it means it can only happen on the ladder.

    some of the most expensive gloves in the game are crafted hitpower/blood gloves with +2skill and 20ias...you can also craft some very sweet ammies.

    These recipes are also available on Single Player with 1.10.

    This includes ladder-only weapons like Tomb Reaver etc ... and the first batch of runewords but not the recent runewords like Spirit etc which are still Realm-only.

    The first time you craft a ring with 11% life leech, you'll understand 1 of many good reasons to take the time to craft. The information on crafting doesn't make the items look that good, but you have to take into account the *random* mods that every item receives in the crafting process. You can craft some super godly gear, believe me!
