    Upgrading??? Seriously noob question!

    Okay, I really need to know these since I need to improve my merc's crushing blow. How do you upgrade an item? :scratch: In my case, I read that I should upgrade my merc's Rattlecage to speed up my baal kills. Can somebody explain/show me a guid to do this?

    Sorry bout that. I already looked in the arreat summit and couldn't find anything about 'upgrading'. Didn't thought of looking into the cube recepies. Silly me :lol:

    Still a little confused

    I read that as well but I am still a little confused. I have an awesome pally shield (targe) that is + 2 to pally skills with awesome resists. Problem is that its defense is only 28... So if I understand this correctly - If I upgrade this item, i will keep all its stats (+2 to pally and resists) but just upgrade its base. It would then have a higher defense but keep all its stats... I hope that is how it works because i have been wanting to upgrade it for awhile but its resits are so good, i didn't want to risk losing any stats.

    Please reply.

    yup, that's how it works :) as far as rattlecage goes it isn't really that great to upgrade as it has a +200 defense on it rather than a % enhanced defense, but still, the runes are cheap, so i'd do it.

    Thanks for the info. Another ? for you. Could I possibly upgrade the same shield again? If I upgrade from normal to elite. Could I upgrade a second time from elite to exceptional? Sorry if I got elite and exceptional mixed up, I forgot which one is better.

    Yep, it's not a problem upgrading an upgraded item. Elite is the better one btw :)
