    Where have you found 3-socket archon?

    With everyone talking about Enigma, are people actually finding 3-socketed Archon to create this with, or gambling for it, or crafting it? Not only is the ebay option a little spendy, it feels a little fake -- if possible, I would like to find and/or make it.

    They're pretty rare to find... Try Baal runs or Cow games or something.

    can't gamble for a non-magic item

    I found mine in cows way back when, I made my enigma out of a wire fleece

    Just in case you didn't know, you can find one with No sockets, and use the new cube recipe.

    1 Tal Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Topaz + Normal Body Armor = Socketed Body Armor of same type

    Small warning. Only a 1/6 chance of getting 3 socket. 1/2 chance of getting 4 sockets. 1/6 chance of getting 1 and again the 1/6 for 2.

    Worth the try if you find it though.

    I either do Cows (large amount) or Chaos Sanc (fairly safe, easy and straitforward for my hammerdin)

    Got my 3socket phase for CM and my 769 Def Eth Lacquered that I'm stoning
    I've found some Archron, Dusk and Wire but none with high enough defense to warrant action

    One thing that just popped into my head... Keep in mind I am by no means an Item-spawning guru....

    If a Low Quality Archon Plate (Ex: Cracked) is found, (Not sure if it's possible considering Qlvls)... but if it does... You can use this recipe:

    1 El Rune + 1 Chipped Gem + Low Quality Armor = Normal Quality Armor of same type

    Which Makes the armor Normal, and gives it an Ilvl of 1. If you use the Socketing Quest from Larzuk on an Archon Plate with an Ilvl between 1-24, you'll get 3 sockets automatically.

    Pit is a nice place to find magic items.

    alain beat me to it, I was about to say the exact thing.

    Another thing you can do to get a 3-socket archon is to find someone with a lionheart archon and unsocket it. It shouldn't be too expensive to trade for one. Good luck!
