    Socketing quest question

    I found a sup 12% ed etheral Great Poleaxe I want to socket, but I'm shooting for 5-os so I can make Obedience. If I used the quest in Hell, would that mean 6-os only or does is it vary?


    - Thanks.

    Btw, is a great poleaxe good choice for act2 merc weapon? Should I try to get another type?

    You'll get 6 sockets.

    Most people use eth Thresher or Cryptic axe for Obedience, first one for speed, second one for damage.

    PS: Your GPA could make a very nice BOTD actually, might wanna keep this, or trade it away.

    I never figure that one out.

    People ignore the Collosal Volgue. but the damage is nearly the same and no slower than most. I never figured that the 1 digit in range mattered that much.

    Colossus Voulge can only get four (4) sockets, which works fine for "Infinity" or "Insight".

    Colossus has a HUGE str. req., that's the main reason.
    BOTD is the best option for this beast of yours, makes a great WW Barb weapon, huge damage, reaches the last BP.
    People will pay godly for this, I know I would.

    Thank you leohappy and SWs :) Maybe I'll just sell it as it is, but won't go for as much as the runeword I suppose.

    btw, is the act 5 quest giving you max sockets, a change from 1.09 or has it always been that way for normal items? All I ever thought about was socketing uniques (1) or cruel war pikes of quickness (1 or 2 iirc - is that still the same?).


    thanks
