    Runewords will work only in grey-text items (not blue, yellow or any other colour).

    So it should look like:

    Wand

    If the name is White or Grey, it will work. (Non-Magical)

    If the name is Gold, Yellow, Blue, Green, it won't work. (Magical)

    Edit: (I say Bah to you Shade)

    Check out the links on the home page for funewords. All the info you need is there, and then some. The item must be grey text ONLY! So, when it's on the ground or in your inventory the name should be grey in color. Runewords only work in grey text items with the appropriate sockets. They will work in ethereal grey items as well, but beware of durability issues when using ethereal items for runewords. Good Luck, and enjoy the "white".

    White items never have sockets themselves, but if you socket them using Larzuk/the Cube they'll turn grey, so you can use them too.

    White/grey items can spawn with the +specific skill mods, eg. a Wand could get +3 Bone Spirit, a Sceptre could get +3 Charge, etc.

    How can you add sockets to an item with the cube?
    Because Larzuk doesn't add sockets to items that already have them..

    ... but in 1.10 if you are rich (in runes, not money - that's true wealth in D2) you can use another recipe to remove all the sockets from an item, then use the socketing recipe to add them again.

    The maximum number of sockets on an item depends on several factors, though, one of which is the level of monster that dropped it (if it's from a monster) or your level when you bought it (for bought items). So even using the cube and lots of runes won't necessarily result in a net increase in sockets.

    Ignore the first paragraph of what weregamer said.

    The Unsocket recipe doesn't take sockets away. All it does is take out whatever you put in the socket. (Ex: Perfect Ruby) This leaves the sockets clean so you can put something else in.

    OOPS, you are so right. That's what I get for trying to be informative when I'm fried at the end of a 9-hr work day.
