Outcome Cube Socket Recipe Notes
Add 1 Socket To a Rare Item 3x Perfect Skull Perfect Skull + 1x Rare Item + Stone of Jordan Rare Items can only have one socket. You cannot add sockets to items that don’t normally have sockets. You can not use this on a Rare with one socket. You can only add one socket to a zero socket Rare Item.
 1 Socketed Magic Weapon (of same type) 3x Standard Gem (normal) + 1x Socketed Weapon (Any Type)  This takes a socketed weapon and makes it a magic socketed weapon with a random number of sockets. This allows you to get new magic bonuses on an otherwise non magical weapon. The original weapon properties will be removed (rerolled) when the new weapon is created. ilvl = 30. It gets 1-2 sockets.
Socketed Magic Weapon 3x Chipped Gem + 1x Magic Weapon This adds sockets to a magic weapon. The original magic weapon properties will be removed (rerolled) when the new weapon is created. If you use this formula with a weapon that is not normally socketed such as a Javelin, this recipe will create a new magical weapon without any sockets. ilvl=25 magic weapon with 1-2 sockets.

3x Flawless Gem + 1x Magic Weapon
This adds sockets to a magic weapon. The original magic weapon properties will be removed (rerolled) when the new weapon is created.

Socketed Body Armor of same type 1x Tal Rune Tal Rune + 1x Thul Rune Thul Rune + 1x Perfect Topaz Perfect Topaz + 1x Normal Body Armor 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. The chance to get X sockets in most armor is 1/4 (I.E: Mage plate has a max of 3 sockets, so it has a 2/4 [1/2] chance to get 3 sockets). The base of 6 was used in the ratios for all the above mentioned areas.
Socketed Weapon of same type 1x Ral Rune Ral Rune + 1x Amn Rune Amn Rune + 1x Perfect Amethyst Perfect Amethyst + 1x Normal Weapon The number of sockets created will vary.

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.
Socketed Helm of same type 1x Ral Rune Ral Rune + 1x Thul Rune Thul Rune + 1x Perfect Sapphire Perfect Sapphire + 1x Normal Helm 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 1-3 sockets, randomly. However, the number of sockets is then restricted by the maximum number of sockets that base item with that ilvl can have.

Rules about Sockets and adding Sockets

  • Rare items cannot have more than 1 socket. Only use the Rare recipe on an unsocketed item.
  • Set Items and Unique items cannot have sockets added to them via the Horadric Cube. Some will come with native sockets. (Set and Uniques can have 1 socket added to one Chest, Helm, Shield, or Weapon via the Larzuk quest in Act V, once per difficulty level).
  • Javelins and other Thrown weapons cannot have sockets. Trying to use a Weapon socket on such a weapon will reroll properties but won’t give sockets.
  • Armor socket recipes can only be used on Normal unsocketed items. Low or Superior quality items do not work with this recipe.
  • The number of Sockets an item can have is restricted by its iLvl.
  • Socketed Magic weapons or armor cannot use Runewords.
