Ebug Recipe Armor Ebugging Weapon Socket — Diablo 2 Resurrected

Ebug allows you to add 50% to the base defense rating of non-socketed, non-superior ethereal armor, helms, and shields, while at the same time adding a random number of sockets to the item.

1. Diablo 2 Ebug Recipe: Armor, Helm, Shield

Pick up ethereal armors with 700+ defense, ethereal helms, and ethereal shields (cannot be socketed or superior). Every ebug recipe will ALSO work to socket non-ethereal armor, helms, shields, and weapons as well, however, those items just won’t get any defense bonuses from the ebug.

Ebug takes advantage of the following Horadric Cube recipes:

Outcome Horadric Cube Recipe
Socketed ebug Armor of the same input type 1 Tal Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Topaz + 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 ebug Helm of the same input type 1 Ral Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Sapphire + 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. For example, if you have an item that can only have 2 sockets, there’s a 2/3 chance of getting 2 sockets and a 1/3 chance of getting 1 socket.

Socketed ebug Shield of the same input type 1 Tal Rune + 1 Amn Rune + 1 Perfect Ruby + Normal Shield

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. For example, if you have an item that can only have 2 sockets, there’s a 3/4 chance of getting 2 sockets and a 1/4 chance of getting 1 socket.
