Upgrade Trang Set

I'm thinking about upgrading my Trang Set. I really don't know what to put. Some low level runes look nice. But does someone know, for example Eld gives +75dmg to undead, does it go towards the minions or only the Necro?

For the shield, I may want to socket one pDiamond to boost Resists a bit.

I really have no experience with upgrading items.

Are you talking about Socketing? Upgrading is using the cube to change the type of item it is based on (ex. Leather armor upgrades to serpantskin armor.)

What sort of necro? If it were me, and my summoner, I'd socket a ptopaz or the like into the trophy, since lightning is the only resist I really need (*shakes fist at gloams*)

Here's my "Necromancer License." I think it's pretty handy when asking questions.

erm, why max out corpse explosion? I can see swinging ~5 points with all your massive + skills to get the radius, but more than that just seems to be a waste -_-

I just found out that Shael rune gives +20% to Life Regeneration. I don't think it's doing me any good. When I lose health I just want to drink a potion. I play Hell level like Hardcore, now. I can't afford any death.

Hey, perfect skull looks pretty neat. +19% mana regeneration.

Does someone know about the socketing quest? If I give my item to the NPC twice (Normal and Nightmare), can I get two sockets on it?

socket quests do not stack. depending on the item, you will get 1 socket, max sockets, or somewhere in the middle depending on your luck =).

Set items and unique items will only gain a maximum of 1 socket from the socket quests.

Couple suggestions:

1) You could socket your shield with a pdiamond or an Um rune depending how rich you are. It would help towards getting maxed resists. An Um rune in your helm and/or armor could help too.

2) Once you get maxed resists, other possibilities are psaphires for more mana if you need or prubies for more life which is always nice.

I socketed a pTopaz into my Trang shield. I really need maxed Lightning resist for those ******** souls. My other resists are pretty decent already.

Phyrexial, you are talking about getting to 75% resist. I was think about increasing my max resists a bit. Some runes are helpful, but only 5% increment. Angel Armor is good, but I can't spare my Full Trang set.

If you are going to keep your full set on, increasing maxed resists are mainly going to come on boots.

Waterwalk: +5 max fire res
Hotspurs: +15 max fire res

Most of the other gear to increase your res cap uses the belt slot. If black souls are really giving you a problem, you may need to sacrifice your belt slot for a tgods. Should give you enough time to blind the bastards. ;)
