    I found a magic socket great maul with 5 sockets and 1-26 lightning damage. I am going to socket Honor in it and whoop up :) If anyone can spare any of the runes for honor, if you have extra, or anything, I would be much abliged. I am on east now though.

    Azrael - I'm pretty sure rune words don't work in magical/set/unique items, even if they have enough sockets for a runeword.

    I'm not 100% sure though, but if I were you I'd test some crappy magic item (shop for one - sockets is a magic prefix) with a cheap rune word before using the Sol and Amn on that weapon.

    The areat summit states that the item must be a normal (non-magical) socketed item. It will not work. You will get the bonuses for the individual runes used, but no rune work will form. I though about that on a socketed magic claw I had. Won't work.

    which brings up a question for Olon that I have been meaning to ask (and probably would be better posted in the weapon speed thread).

    Which would be better in the long run:
    To socket the weapon one is using (assuming a rare, decent speed weapon) and plunk a shae in it or to socket the twitch and put a shae into it.

    I've been thinking about this for my jav/spearazon. I have a decent dam fast speed yari, twitch, a Shae and a socket quest that is burning a hole in my pocket.

    "Shae" only increases weapon speed when you put it in a weapon. In armor/helm it boost hit recovery, and in a shield it boosts block rate.

    The way to boost atack speeds with sockets outside the weapon is with jewels bearing the 15% increased attack speed modifiers (appears on magic jewels only). So far I've made a 25% IAS twitch with one, and also a 15% IAS Tal Rasha's set death mask (dual 10% leech and IAS - yum).

    Shae in a weapon, however, gives you a 20% increase (you might have noticed while speed thread that using percentages is somewhat innacurate). For zeal/WW/strafe/fury/smite/jab/fend/frenzy or anything else that gets a speed boost from the skill itself, having the weapon itself be fast (socketing a "shae" if the modifier wasn't there already) makes a big difference.

    Getting back to your actual question - it probably makes more sense to socket and gem/rune items that you're not likely to replace soon. You can always make a cheap low level character and rush them to act 5 for a free socket, but that takes some work and if the weapon you're considering socketing is magic, it's best to save a hell difficulty socket quest to maximize your odds of getting 2 sockets instead of 1 (note: this might just be superstition - but for getting max sockets in normal items hell socket quest is the way to go).

    ahh, oops.

    forgot that shae worked differently for armor, silly me.
    That being said, I do have a 15% ias jewel that Lurk graciously gave me that I could plunk into a socketed twitch (though he gave it to me so I could plunk it into my 2 socketed sword of Ali Baba ...), I did have the parts of the equation, I just presented them wrong.

    It is nice to hear that clan members are sharing items. This is what being in the clan is all about. I am so sick of people hogging all drops and making requests of others while sharing not a thing (I see this too often on b.net). It make the game a bit more fun!
