(5) if the rare item is not powerful or useful, do it again.
Orb of Scouring removes all mods from magic or rare item, and make the item become a normal item. The normal item has the same implicit modifiers, quality, sockets, and links as the original item.
In many cases, you find a magic item or rare item with 4L or 6L, but it has bad mods. you can craft it with Orb of Scouring, removing all the mods and return it to a normal item. Use Blacksmith’s Whetstone or Armourer’s Scrap to increase quality to maximum, then apply Orb of Alchemy to turn it into a rare item with new mods. If the new rare item’s modifiers are not satisfied, you can repeat the steps again and again. This process is always called crafting spam.
