    War Scepters

    Well, I need a non-magical war scepter. Ultimately, it will be socketed (4 sockets, hopefully) but as long as it's non magical I can socket it myself with the cube. Unfortunately, it seems you can't purchase war scepeters until Act3, but After Act2 you can only purchase Magical items. It seems, for some reason, relatively impossible to gamble for any sort of war scepter either. (I'm playing Hardcore, not ladder, on normal, btw). So, wondering if there is any other way to obtain such a scepter behinds crossing my fingers on drops. And if I need to ultimately find one, any suggestions on areas or equiptment that might help me find it? Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    LOL, I've been trying to get the same thing...its especially hard to get one with decent mods.

    Also, remember that normal spawned War Scepters can only get 3 sockets, not 4.

    The easiest and best thing to do is get to act3 and buy one, the odds of finding one off a drop with mods in your favour are very slim. If you do end up having to find one, there aren't many mobs you can run before act 3, if you do, be warned, it may take a while.

    Well, basically I'm trying to make a Holy Thunder scepter using Runewords (EthRalOrtTal) and for Runewords you need a normal item with the exact number of sockets (namely, four in this case). And, as I mentioned before the only item I have a chance with is a War Scepter which can have up to five. I figure if I can obtain a normal War Scepter with no sockets, I can put it in the cube and take my chances.

    I don't know the specifics, but I know that in norm act3, there's a mix between magical and normal items. This may be affected by your character level, but I 'm unsure of that. If you want best results, get a level 10 or lower char to act3 and run the shops until you find one.

    Also, you can try cows, especially normal cows. Just make sure you have zero or very little mf, so you will fidn less magical items, and more normal ones.

    Good luck.

    EDIT: What realm are you playing on? I just found a war scepter on UsEast non-ladder...

    As far as I understand it, items found in normal has max sockets of 3...so I would venture that the cube wouldn't yeild more than 3 sockets, the socket quest only gives 3 sockets in a normal warscepter.
