    Upgrading

    Hi all,

    I have a question regarding upgrading weapons and armor. Is there a way to upgrade runewords? or superior items? or eth items? I know that there are the cube formulas, but do those only apply to uniques?

    Thanks.

    Uniques and rares only (including ethereal versions of these). Everything else, no.

    Oh that sucks! Thanks..

    On a moderate sidenote, I found an eth AP with no 0s. I think these can fetch a decent price...or is it better for me to try to do the bugged cube socket thing OR socket quest OR sell as it? What results am I looking for to fetch me the best price and why?

    Assuming your eth AP isn't superior you want to ebug it and hope for 4os.
    (you can't ebug superior items)

    Tal+Thul+Perfect Topaz + AP in cube and pray for 4os.

    ebugging will do 2 things
    1. Random number of sockets 1-4
    2. multiply the def by 1.5 (the "bug" for ethereal armour/helm/shields)

    4os ebugged AP's are used for high defence runewords for mercenaries, primarily Fortitude.

    AP base = 410-524
    Eth AP = 615-786
    ebugged AP = 922-1179 defence.

    Generally any ebugged 4os armour with 1000 def or more will sell well, so your AP will need 667 defence to be "worth" ebugging.

    Even if you get 3os it makes an excellent Treachery for a merc, granted no where near as valuable as a 4os eAP.

    Well I lost it transferring so I guess we'll never know how this turns out. Pretty pissed.
