    Where can I get this item!?!

    Okay, without wanting to explain why I need this, I am just going to say that I need an item with 6 sockets with the lowest possible strength/dex/Clvl requirements. Also, it has to be a melee weapon. Where should I shop/hunt for this weapon?

    You'll want a Crystal Sword. Find a white Crystal Sword in a2 NM or later and ask Larzuk to socket it for you. Or you could just go and find a 6-socketed one, as they can't be shopped.

    Ok, I'll bite.

    Why the hell do you need this? Are you planing a naked Barb assault?

    I'm curious too.

    Perhaps a sword filled with jewels of envy for +120 psn damage over 2 seconds?

    4xEth 2xBer for a necro perhaps. Or Shael/Ber Combo. Or 6 Ist.

    +damage jewels with low level req makes for one hell of a crystal sword when tweaking gear for playing many melee characters through the game for quest reward purposes. I actually have a crystal sword with 6-107 damage usable at clvl 18 with a nothing of a str/dex req.

    Well if high damage with low requirements is what you are looking for why not ask RTB to show you his maul :)

    If you want low requirements you can get a maul with really low str/dex requirements using Hel's since they also have no clvl requirements you can wield them at really low levels, right RTB?

    crystal swords are your lowest clvl, str, dex requirements for a white item but others exist if you want to use some hel's in them.

    Correct, but the mauls are slow and better used for the bigger bosses ((Super)Uniques, Champions, etc), and you can use a faster but less damaging weapon for the weak normal monsters. Or whack 'em with a Maul like this one:
    Gemmed Superior Great Maul
    Two-Hand Damage: 61 to 93
    Durability: 60 of 60
    Required Strength: 10
    Mace Class - Slow Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 85
    Fingerprint: 0x8bfc861b
    +62% Enhanced Damage
    +3 to Attack Rating
    Requirements -90%
    150% Damage to Undead
    Socketed (6: 6 used)

    :evil:

    Yes, I would definately go with that maul... If I wasn't such a big fan of shields ;) Zeal with that maul wouldn't be the same as with the crystal sword...

    Thrugg's Gemmed War Axe
    One-Hand Damage: 34 to 35
    Durability: 26 of 26
    Required Strength: 37
    Required Level: 3
    Axe Class - Normal Attack Speed
    Item Version: Expansion
    Item Level: 61
    Fingerprint: 0x1913db8b
    +19 to Life
    +26 to Attack Rating
    +24 to Minimum Damage
    +8 to Maximum Damage
    +7 Defense
    Fire Resist +12%
    Lightning Resist +25%
    Poison Resist +18%
    31% Extra Gold from Monsters
    Requirements -45%
    Socketed (6: 6 used)

    Could have used a Crystal Sword, but since it was getting -45% reqs I didn't think I needed to. I almost always twink +Str charms on new chars so they can wear their armour anyway.

    Just out of curiousity why did you add a jewel with +maximum damage? your +minimum pushed the maximum out as was.

    They were six rare jewels, each with the all important +4 min mod on them. Everything else was gravy. Two of them had +max on them as well - there just aren't that many mods that can spawn on such low ilvl rare jewels.

    Which is part of the reason it was feasible to do it - by re-rolling exactly the right ilvl jewel I was seeing +min damage every 3 or 4 rerolls, so I got +4 min about every 15. It still took ~400 PSkulls to roll up 6 of them (and that was beating the odds slightly too). Rerolling rares is an expensive business.

    Hmm, actually, from memory (it was a while ago now, you note the 1.09 item version) I already had one suitable jewel I'd found, which is what inspired me to do it in the first place, so that was what it took to reroll 5 more.
