    socket quest vs crystal sword

    Guys, i was wondering, if i'd use the socket quest on a crystal sword, what ammount of sockets would that give me? (looking to make a spirit sword) I checked the stickies here above, but the pages are gone :s

    It depends on where (difficulty, area) you found it.

    it depends on where you found the sword.

    The max sockets a crystal sword can get is 6 and any sword found late nightmare/hell will get that. I don't know the exact Ilvl your sword needs to have but if you post here where you found it someone will come along and will probably be able to tell you exactly how many sockets you will get.

    Alternatively, PM me @ *Erwwwd2 if you're online now, I can give you an ethereal 4 socket broad sword for free if you want to make it into that. Ethereal looks cool :)

    (this offer was made assuming you live in Antwerp, Belgium, and you play on the Europe ladder)

    ilvl 1-25: 3 sockets (Normal up to Act 3 plus Act 5 Bloody Foothills and Frigid Highlands)

    ilvl 26-40: 4 sockets (Normal Act 4 to NM Act 1 Barracks, except Normal Act 5 Bloody Foothills and Frigid Highlands, and NM Act 1 Tower Celler Level 4 and 5)

    ilvl 40+: 6 sockets (NM Act 1 Jail and later, plus NM Act 1 Tower Celler Level 4 and 5)

    Note: Minions (plus Champions/Uniques) have higher levels than regular monsters. The areas listed above assume normal monsters.

    How does this apply to other items like Monarchs etc?

    I understand mlvls and ilvls, but how do you know what mlvl monster would drop a Monarch that yields 3 sockets vs 4 sockets through socket quest? I would like to know how to apply this to any potentially socketable item that i find.

    ilvl 1-25: 3
    ilvl 26-40: 3
    ilvl 40+: 4

    Thanks! Thats a great list.

    However, there is still one thing i don't understand.

    For the crystal sword I was under the impression that ilvl was always equal to the mlvl of the mob that dropped the sword.

    Since monsters lvl 40 and below can not drop monarchs, how do you get one with ilvl<=40 that will yield 3 sockets?

    You repair a cracked Monarch using the cube, sets the ilvl to one
