    Restarting a good idea.

    Well, I remember back a while ago we had a great "Grey Item Giveaway" post where people exchanged those nice grey socketed non-magical items that all the runewords require.

    I intend on reviving this noble practice. I have both some stuff I'd want to share with you as well as a two requests:

    The stuff I'd like to share are:

    Cuirass (3 sockets)
    Akaran Rondache (4 sockets) (16% enhanced damage)
    Mummified Trophy (+2 to Bone Spear) (2 sockets)
    Knout (4 sockets)
    Superiour Naga (4 sockets)
    Superior Gothic Bow (3 sockets)
    Superior Greater Claws (2 sockets) (+1 Lightning Sentry, +3 Mind Blast. +3 Blade Fury)
    Superior Crowbill (4 sockets)
    Tusk Sword (4 sockets)
    Flail (4 sockets)
    Superior Field Plate (2 sockets)
    Light Plate (2 sockets)
    Superior Heraldic Shield (4 sockets) (All resistances +26)
    Heraldic Shield (4 sockets) (All resistances +10)
    Heraldic Shield (4 sockets) (all resistances +24)
    Heraldic Shield (4 sockets) (38% enhanced damage)
    Great Helm (3 sockets) x2
    War Sword (3 sockets)
    War Scythe (4 sockets)
    War Hammer (4 sockets)
    War Axe (4 sockets)


    My first request is: An exceptional paladin shield with resists and two sockets.


    My second request is a bit more interesting. In order to keep this thing alive we must have people willing to collect and stash these things. I personally am, but I do not have an infinite inventory so I do not mule every grey socketed item I find.

    Thus I ask you: What kind of non-magical socketed items are in demand among you SPF players and with what amount of sockets?

    I don't think I have anything in any stashes ATM, but I'd be more than happy to pick stuff up that is socketed.

    I'm interested in the Superior Field Plate (2 sockets). That is if I can find another Lum.

    Do you want the paladin shield for resistances or a runeword? I found a paladin shield with exceptional resistances, but no sockets. But that can be fixed by the quest reward.

    Well, if you tell me your email message you can consider the field plate yours.

    Regarding the shield I want it for a runeword, so it has to be exactly two sockets.

    Back to the discussion: What combinations of item type, quality, automods and socket numbers are "hot" so to speak.

    I know a few like 2 socket Grim Shields for Rhyme and +3 bone spear wands for White, but there are a lot of items I am not yet very acquainted to, like most weapons.

    Email is jdmcclung1 at charter dot net

    Another I'd like to see
    Ward Bow (2 sockets)
    Elite Hunter Bow (2 Sockets)


    As for weapons I remember Breath of the Dying is pretty hot. Bramble aslo looks pretty nice for a poisonmancer. Sorry but I don't know the requirements for these, but atleast it is a start.

    I will have to agree the idea was pretty good, but I am not shure this thread will be restarted every sunday. Maybe we should make a poll, so we can see how much people would like this thread to be "permanent"?

    Sounds like a good idea. Unfortunately I won't be able to contribute since I don't follow all of the SPF rules in my playing. If you want to get rid of some of those items, tho, I'll be happy to take
    Superior Heraldic Shield (4 sockets) (All resistances +26)
    Heraldic Shield (4 sockets) (38% enhanced damage)
    off your hands for you :)

    Mule sent to Johnny Bravo.

    Btw, regarding my request for information I am especially interested in the number of sockets. I have a sneaking suspicion that just collecting everything with four sockets is not the way to do it.

    I'd take the knout (4 sockets) and the Greater Claws (2 sockets, incl +3 BF) off of your hands.

    I'll look through my stash tonight and see what I can come up with. I know I've got a 4 socket Battle Scyth? I think that's it ... Several others. Sometimes I keep socketed items, other's I let rot ... I'll look. May have a excep Pally shield lying around that can be passed on to a new home.

    Oh, email is [email protected].

    Cheers!

    Kinda interested in your plans for the Greater Claws?

    I would join in this but I do not trade outside of my own characters.

    @Indemaijinj are you using and ATMA stash or just chars for inventories?

    I think this a great idea. In fact we should include the runes...

    You can't blame me for trying.

    I collect tons of 4 socket armours so I can offer those up, but what I'm looking for is a 6 socket scourge or phase blade. I want to make an 4xEth, 2xShael for my PS assassin to avoid AR issues for bosses.

    Another useful item would be 3 socket claws, not just any claws but runic talons, scissors suwayaah and suwayaah as these are the most desired for "chaos" although I don't know of anyone in SPF with a chaos (maybe because they're mainly a PvP claw).

    Fafner I can send you a 6-socket phase blade in exchange for a 4-socket elite armor (medium or light weight preferred).

    Well, I was thinking of putting Strength into it. The Amn + Tir aren't hard to get (in fact, I'm overflowing with them both) and the Crushing Blow would make a BIG difference in boss killing. Even if it would be cut back drastically for the percentage of life removed since it would be part of the Blade Fury attack. The other nice thing would be the +3 to Blade Fury. Yes, I know, it's only minimal damage added per level, but I'm a glutton for punishment. Anything is welcome. :D

    Of course, I'm not sure if I'd use it or the nice Crescent Moon Phase blade that's waiting on her in 3 more levels. :scratch:

    Gotta love these little delima's (or is that delimiters?). :teeth:

    Cheers!

    If that exceptional Paladin shield got 2 sockets on it and +resist automods I want it.


    And yes, I use ATMA, I was merely referring to the fact that my inventory space on my character is limited. I run multiple bosses per game session you see.


    And BTW, mules have been sent to Starwars2 and Howitzer_Al. Enjoy!

    I have a .d2s file here (on a computer without the game installed) called "sockets.d2s" that I'd be happy to send to someone if they wanted to poke around in it and take some stuff or distribute it to others. Send me an email if you're interested. No idea what's on it . . .

    I like the idea of this thread. I don't think it needs to be stickied, or weekly, but it should be kept kicking around for all this socketed goodness.

    EDIT: 2-socket wire fleece (maybe 440 defense or so) available for someone. Just waiting for NefLum!

    Durf, that avatar is seriously twisted. :lol: You must have seen one too many Chuckie movies...

    Fafner, I'm sorry... I just realized I'm not supposed to acquire any items from non-SPLadder players (ladder from another forum). I can still send you the 6-socket phase blade if you want it though. :thumbsup:

    I have a few 3 socket elite armors to give away if anybody wants one...

    Ok. I'll take it still. [email protected]. I think I have a Hauberk, Diamond mail, and maybe Archon plate (Don't quote me on this one, it may just be the exceptional version). I socketed a gothic with p-topazes and an embossed (gothic exceptional) as well.
