It's vital to know how to add sockets in Diablo 2 Resurrected Items. Item sockets allow you to enhance your items with runes and jewels, allowing you to create Runewords that have great effects. But raising an item's socket count in D2 isn't easy. Each approach contains two parts, neither of which is straightforward. They don't want you to gain too much power too early in your profession. Keep reading to learn how to add sockets to Diablo 2 items and where to get Larzuk.
Larzuk Quest Diablo 2 Resurrected – Sockets on Items
To get sockets for items in Diablo 2 Resurrected Items, you can complete a quest for Larzuk in Act V's Harrogath town. The "Siege on Harrogath" task requires you to defeat a town boss. Before reporting to Larzuk, you must travel to The Bloody Foothills and slay Shenk the Overseer. He will then offer to socket one item for free. He only does it once per difficulty level, therefore you can only do it three times per character. The amount of sockets Larzuk produces on an item depends on its rarity and level. It operates as follows.
Sockets for one-of-a-kind, uncommon, or set items White and gray items – one socket
The maximum number of sockets is governed by the item's level, which is decided by the monster that dropped it.
This implies you'll have to wait for high-level creatures to drop white items before using them. The number of sockets an item can get is determined on its level. The item's level, however, is determined by the monster that dropped it. As a result, most Larzuk-made weapons and shields require at least Nightmare difficulty Act I to use. A white crystal sword can be obtained by killing foes in Act V. These may be high enough (item level 26-40) to fill all four sockets. Wait until Hell difficulty to get a white Monarch shield with four sockets.
Diablo 2 Resurrected: Adding Sockets with the Cube
To install sockets in Diablo 2 Resurrected Items, you must first obtain the Horadric Cube. See our Horadric Cube guide for additional details. If you're lucky, it'll be on the third level of the Halls of the Dead dungeon in Dry Hills. You must vanquish Bloodwitch the Wild to obtain her treasure chest. Following the recipes below will allow you to utilize the Cube to randomly assign sockets to an item. Keep in mind that it only works on white items.
Tal Rune plus Thul Rune plus Perfect Topaz plus Normal Armor.
Ral and Thul Runes, Perfect Sapphire, and a regular helmet
Tal Rune + Amn Rune + Perfect Ruby + Normal Shield
Amn Rune, Perfect Amethyst, and a regular weapon
The cool method below will help you determine your chances of acquiring an item with the maximum amount of sockets. A crystal sword with level 30 slots can have up to four. This means that with the Horadric Cube Wapon socket recipe, you have a 1/6 chance of receiving one, 2/6 chance of getting two, 3/6 chance of getting four. When buying a 6 socket item, you can get any number of sockets.
