    Sockets for this?

    Hey, I'm new on the boards, and haven't played D2 for over 2 years.
    Just seeking some advice.

    NM Andy was nice enough to drop this for me earlier:

    Blade of Ali Baba
    Tulwar
    One-Hand Damage: 28-61
    Durability: 18 of 32
    Required Dexterity: 42
    Required Strength: 70
    Required Level: 35
    Sword Class: Slow Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level : 49
    Fingerprint: 0x8e8f4188
    +11 to Dexterity
    +15 to Mana
    +77% Enhanced Damage
    130% Extra Gold ( Based on Character Level )
    52% Chance of Getting Better Items ( Based on Character Level )
    Socketed ( 2: 0 Used)

    I was wondering what I should socket this with, It's my first Character since coming back so I don't have much to work with. ( I'm SP only btw )

    P.S.
    Sorry about the long type-out of properties, I don't know how to post an ATMA readout.

    Thx for any replies

    Aliya

    It's used for MF switch, so put in some MF or nothing at all. As you're on SP, Ists are out of question. Maybe drop in some MF jewels (the best you can get).

    Alternative: put it on goldfind barb and socket with Lems.

    If you don't have any of those, just leave them empty.

    What would you consider a 'good' MF jewel? only one I have atm is a 7%, I'm sure there must be better.

    Isn't the highest on jewels 17?
    There's mf on both prefix and suffix afterall.

    Just to clear up the jewel I have:

    Aureolic Jewel of Prosperity
    Required Level: 19
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 28
    Fingerprint: 0x1b52a683
    7% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items
    +2 to Mana after each kill

    Worth socketing? Or should I hold out for something better in your opinions?

    Re: Sockets for this?

    From what I've gathered, a magical (blue) jewel could possibly have
    a total of 17% MF in it. It would then be: "Emerald Jewel of Prosperity", 1-7%+1-10% accordingly, and the chances for both of these (Emerald+Prosperity) to spawn in a single jewel are 1:6901. So to have 17%MF in a blue jewel, the changes are: 1:6901/70=
    0,00000207:1.

    ps. I was a bit bored.

    Stock it with perfect topaz if ur gonna mf. save every topaz u see chiped, flawed etc. and imbrue them til you get a perfect. Also join in on the normal games that need rush and rush them hellforge and collect the gems there and then try trade them. a perfect topaz give 24% if im not mistaken

    Would the +2 to mana after each kill apply to something I killed with, say, FO? If so it could help out with my mana levels too.

    @ ronniek

    PTopaz doesn't give MF socketed in weapons as I understand, is this correct?

    Re: Sockets for this?

    No gem provides utility mods in weapons - all gems deal with either elemental damage (rubys, emeralds, topazes and sapphires), or with AR/specific damage (amethysts and diamonds), or even with leech (skulls). Only Ists and jewels can provide MF in weapons.

    And yes, mana/kill and life/kill are applied to ANY way you kill a monster - I believe it even applies to your summons (but not if your merc kills).

    It's a better weapon on the weapon switch though. A sorc has much better choices as main weapon.
