    Repairing Etherial items

    I just read a thread that said that you can't repair eth items, even using recipies, but I thought that was what the recipies were for, so I'm confused as to if this is true or false or what.

    The recipe is for repairing normal items, like you don't want to pay the high price of repairing your Sup AP Enigma. Ethereal items cannot be repaired; we'd all be using eth items otherwise.

    Directly from arreat summit: http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/cube.shtml

    Ort Rune + Weapon = Fully Repaired Weapon
    Use this Rune + Your Horadric Cube to repair your weapon. You cannot repair Ethereal items.

    1 Ral Rune + Armor = Fully Repaired Armor
    Use this Rune + Your Horadric Cube to repair your armor. You cannot repair ethereal armor.

    Not entirely true, ethereal items can be repaired, one time. Use something down to 1 durability and go let Anya name it. Repairs durability and recharges (if any), but as I stated in the first line, this only works once.

    I dont take pictures of things everytime i do something.... If your uncertain try it, find a low lvl eth item and make some crap rw in it and use it for a lil while. After youve lost some durability on it, take it to Anya. If it dont work, eh you didnt waste an eth item.

    *** Edit ***

    Forgot to mention i havent done this since 1.10, may have cancled that in 1.11.

    The current consensus is that personalizing doesn't repair an item, not even once, and that it didn't work in 1.10 as well. That means you either have to live with others not believing you or you present evidence (instead of expecting it from others), e.g. screenshots from 1.10 in single player. :tongue:

    Even then, people will still not believe you, but screenshots will make other people try it themselves and support your observation if it's true.

    I just tried it out, the results:

    Before & After

    And we can reasonably assume that if it doesn't work for eth uniques, it doesn't work for any eth item, and if it doesn't work for dura, it also won't work for charges.

    If you don't believe me, try it out yourselves.

    AFIK the only way to reapir eth items is if it has the repair mod in it such as exile.

    Okay, how about this?

    Socket, Zod, indestructable. Then use the cube-recipee to destroy the rune inside the previously indestructable ethereal.

    Would it restore the durability to whatever it was before it became indestructable, or would it increase to full durability?

    I can answer that, since I asked that question last week orso :rolleyes:

    The answer is no: your durability will fall back to whatever it was before.
