    Note that when upgrading, you are actually changing your items base type, so str/dex requirements will change. For weapons, range and weapon speed may also change.

    On top of that, the new level requirement will be the highest of the following plus another factor:
    • unique level requirement or highest rare affix level requirement
    • new base type level requirement
    • anything socketed in the item's level requirement
    The factor changes based on the type of upping:
    • +5 (normal -> exceptional)
    • +7 (exceptional -> elite)
    • +12 (double upped)

    NOTE: Socketing before and after upping will result in the same level requirement. Ex: If you up an item, then socket a rune or jewel with higher level requirement than the item's new level requirement, then your level requirement will still be the rune or jewel's level requirement +5 (or 7 or 12).
