    Socketing Blue items ...

    Can someone tell me how to socket blue items so that they get the maximum sockets ....

    I used larzuk on an armor and it gave me 2 sockets only...

    Can I add more to the 2 sockets now?

    I am unsure as to magic (blue) items. However, for normal (grey) armour:

    Each armour has a different maximum number of sockets.

    You can find Normal armour's here
    You cand find Exceptional armour's here
    You can find Elite armours here

    No you cannot add more sockets, you will need to reroll the item. I am unsure whether you can reroll the same item, you may be required to roll another armour.

    In addition, there is only a 50% chance you will get 2 sockets: half the time, you only get one.

    People will shop for armours (Archon Plate is a popular choice) that have the 4 sockets.

    I am unsure as to the Prefix, but look out for Mechanic's/Jeweler's (Armour Type) of the Squid.

    A question ive wanted to ask for a while...

    Say i have a magic item with the jewelers (4os) prefix. now i socket it with whatever, then i reroll using the 3 pgem +magic item recipe.

    My question(s): Will the prefix get changed? If it does, will it destroy whats in the sockets, just the last 2 sockets or leave them there?

    Don't quote me on this, but I don't think you can use the 3 pgems + magic item with a socketted magic item.

    It will create a new magic item, and nothing is left of the original or the contents of the sockets.

    Those are Jeweler's (armor) of the Whale. 4 sockets and 81 - 100 life, but the combination is very rare ( about 1 in 12000 IIRC).

    In 1.09 rich players used to burn 1000s of Pgems to roll one of these on non-shoppable armor e.g. Dusk Shroud or Wire Fleece. They sold for obscene amounts of wealth, mostly for pvp in need of +life & hit IAS BP. With the new runewords, these armors are no longer as popular.

    Best place for Archon-types is Anya (Atc 5 Hell). But you'd probably have better luck having an ethereal Death Cleaver dropping. I know I did. Lol. :D
