    Upgrading bows - help sought

    I've been trying to upgrade a Skystrike and Goldstrike Arch and have failed so far. I'm playing in v1.10 single player on the hard drive, and have tried on a few occasions now to upgrade them with both the exceptional to elite and, in desperation, the rare to exceptional recipes, using both sapphires and emeralds. Have tried it in normal, nightmare and hell modes and all have failed.

    I had socketed the Goldstrike prior to trying, and tried upgrading that with socket empty and filled. Both failed. The Skystrike is au naturel.

    Anyone have any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
    Thanks in hope

    The upgrade of a Goldstrike Arch is certainly possible on the ladder as I have done this. However, the recipe does specifically say "ladder only" and so perhaps that is the problem, although I thought single player was treated as ladder for most purposes. Sorry, that is all I can suggest assuming you are trying the correct recipe (i.e. Lum + Pul + P Emerald)

    There should be no upgrade problems. Single player contains all the ladder features including all the ladder only items and all the upgrade recipes for runes and items.

    I think that in this case, the "Ladder Only" actually means Ladder only, especially since it's written in red text.

    Upgrading bows

    :idea:
    Up to now I have been trying the non-ladder recipe, that of Fal, Um and Psap. This had worked for me in the past when I upgraded a rogues bow. Hadn't considered trying the ladder recipe. Must dash off and try it.
    Thanks
