PoE Corrupt an item to have a white socket

Corrupt an item to have a white socket

Vaal Orb Vaal Orb corrupts an item, modifying it unpredictably. Vaal Orbs always entail a risk: they can greatly improve an item but they can also change it for the worse. Only one of the effects listed for each type of item below may happen.

  • No effect (other than adding the corrupted property).
  • Change one or more sockets to white sockets. This has a 1/4 chance of occurring, with a 1/10 chance for each additional socket (1/40 for two, up to 1/400000 for 6 white sockets).
    • This event can most likely even occur when the equipment has no sockets and will have the identical phenotype to “no effect”. The assumption comes from the Altar of Corruption where the white socket achievement could be obtained from jewellery.
  • Reroll the item into a rare item with randomized sockets, links and six random affixes. If this result is chosen, there is a one in thirty-six chance the item will have the maximum number of sockets and links. “Also, it’s not a 1/36 chance to 6-link, it’s 1/144 chance to 6-link (because 75% of the time it picks another option)”. An item with “prefixes cannot be changed” or “suffixes cannot be changed” will retain those mods, similar to using a chaos orb.
  • Change the implicit to a special Vaal Implicit, or adds a Vaal implicit if the item has no implicit by default.
  • Certain items have a chance to turn into another related item when corrupted. The exact chance of this occurring and how it affects the outcome distribution is unknown.
    • Tear of Purity -> Blood of Corruption
    • Voll’s Vision -> Malachai’s Vision
