Tips

Tainted Chromatic Orbs are primarily used to change the colours of sockets on a corrupted item.

  1. It only works on corrupted items. Can be used to re-roll the colour of sockets on a weapon or piece of armour.
  2. It's only possible to get red, blue or green sockets using this orb. The result is random.
  3. Sockets are more likely to roll a colour corresponding to the attributes of the equipment being altered. The higher the attribute requirements, the more likely it is to roll the relevant color: red sockets for Strength, green sockets for Dexterity, and blue sockets for Intelligence.
  4. It drops from Scourge monsters.
