I never find them, granted I get bored after doing 1x fautz run anyway. I would prefer it remain as is; It actually stopped their OP value since they were once unsocketable. If there were ever a reciepe to unsocket it...I'd like it to be alot of some useless hard item (like enchanted crystal or 3x karas ticket umo). Give use to some item that many people think are useless but not that easy to find. Even 1x shaad to unsocket it would work.


then again I feel like fautz great rune drops needs to be nerfed IN PROPORtion to toraja. So if fautz is 8x bigger than toraja than fautz runes need to be 8x harder to find than toraja runes. Fautz already drops tons of gg jewelry and you can just roll through; toraja is rather boring is only drops great runes. Lets make toraja a bit more inticing or make fautz a bit less?

Most cotws just rot in the stash for being unsocketable.

It being ultra rare makes it ultra expensive, it being unsocketable makes player want to sell it instead of using it and since its expensive it rarely is sold = unconventional, rare fun builds are almost extinct.

This. I remember having fun several ladder seasons ago with the Cotw's I found, but after they've been made impossible to unsocket, I bet most of them never gets to see daylight - you need the perfect item to use it in, and pref. in an item that can also be shared between builds/chars. It's way too much of a hassle avoiding using the Cotw in a weak/not-best-in-slot item.

Voted for unsocket being possible of course.

wasn't expecting someone else than mr cheesity to make such thread, you miss dancing SoV oskill on all your chars? seems people have a hard time understanding that CotWs are NOT a factor in the game balance, the game is NOT balanced around them, thus, allowing players to carry them throughout their gear progression is completely broken, as well as being able to dance them between all their characters AND afterwards get full trading value?

haven't I explained this a billion times?

voting or not voting in this is useless.. I also made a similar post some time ago and marco said pretty much the same thing he said above..
I learned he is not gonna change it back so I stopped winning about it and just hope that the unique jwel I found in uber is an atomus or even a zakarum stoning jewel and not a cotw..

GR runewords should also be un-unsocketable (yes this is the term, peeps). They should also be stronger. This way, they could compete (or even be greater than) sacred uniques, and this adds some farming value to the game (which is conceptually 'more correct' than doing lame re-rolls). This would add more balance to endgame.

All items should have no sockets. All characters should have no items. All games should have no mods. All electrical sockets should have no sockets.
