    Quick socketing question

    Hey all!

    So I found this the other day:

    Superior Dusk Shroud
    Defense: 514
    Durability: 22 of 22
    Required Strength: 77
    Required Level: 49
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 80
    Fingerprint: 0xffd20f44
    +10% Enhanced Defense
    Increase Maximum Durability 10%

    I know that these make great bases for runewords, so I'm wondering- should I use a Larzuk on this to ensure (I think) 4 sox, or are they common enough that using the cube and taking what I get would be the way to go? I just know this is the first superior D.S. I've found yet.

    You can't use the cube on superior items, if that's what you mean.

    And having never tried it, I didn't realize that. Thanks for setting me straight :lipsrsealed:

    Just remember that because the armor is Superior that repair costs are going to skyrocket on you. If you are going to use that with a melee character be sure you can afford goldwise to keep repairing it, or have a bunch of spare Ral runes lying around.

    And by skyrocketing, he really means skyrocketing. A superior item like that can literally have a reapir cost that reaches hundreds of thousands and above, depending on the runeword.

    Larzuk would give it 4 sockets. Superior dusk shrouds and archon plates are fairly uncommon, but I agree with everyone else, it's not really worth the repair costs unless its going on a merc, or a char that will greatly benefit from the added defense.
