Pherdnut said:Shroud is popular because it's easy to find and has a nice strength requirement to armor value.
Archon makes the most sense for Enigma IMO. Dusk Shroud is a better choice for Armors that don't enhance strength like Enigma does.
You will always get 4 sockets (because of the iLvl of the white armor), UNLESS your Archon Plate was a low quality one, and you used the Horadric formula to make it a normal one. By doing this, your armor will be a normal one with iLvl=1, and Larzuk will always give it only 3 sockets.UnRegistred said:question, how many sockets do we get from a white Archon if we bring it to the npc giving sockets in act5 ?
The white Archon that i have is 470 def, 103 strengt, lvl 63Frosty_The_Snowman said:Tip : This is a good way to get a 3-Sockets Archon Plate. Pick up a low quality one, burn a EL and a chipped gem to make it normal, and use Larzuk's Quest. Unfortunately, you'll often end up with a crappy defense for your 3-Sockets Archon Plate :thanks: !
1 tal rune + 1 thul rune + 1 perfect topaz + normal body armor = socketed body armor of same type.
The number of sockets created will vary. the item must be normal and unsocketed. Low-quality items and superior items do not work. the item gets 1-4 sockets, randomly. however, the number of sockets is then restricted by the maximum number of sockets that base item with that ilvl can have. for example, if you have an item that can only have 2 sockets, there's a 5/6 chance of getting 2 sockets and a 1/6 chance of getting 1 socket.
But be careful, you'll possibly get 1 or 2 sockets, then it'll become Charsi food
- With the horadric formula, there's 1/6 chance that you'll get 3 Sockets, and 3/6 chance you'll get 4 sockets (max sockets on armors). Unfortunately, you'll also have 1/6 chance you'll get 1 socket, and 1/6 chance you'll get 2 sockets.UnRegistred said:The white Archon that i have is 470 def, 103 strengt, lvl 63
What do you think ? is that going to give 3 sockets ?
Your choice, if you don't want to try your luck But remember that Archon plates have a defense that range from 410 to 524 (average 467). Yours is 470, it's barely better than the average defense for an Archon plate. People usually socket 520+ ones for normal quality ones, or they socket superior ones (def can then go up to 603 for 15% superior ones).UnRegistred said:If the chance of failing is too high, might aswell give it to Larzuk for 4 sockets.
atleast with 4 it can be turned into Fortitude, chain of honor.
No, it only works once.UnRegistred said:btw, can we repeat the cube process until we get 3 sockets or is it one try only ?
Just read your item's name : you'll have it mentionned (Low Quality, Cracked...). Same for superior items.UnRegistred said:how do you know your item is low quality ?
Of course She's kind enough to buy all the crap I sell to her :lol: !UnRegistred said:Charsi food ? do people still go to Charsi ?
