As a note on the new game, it took a long time for any top weapons to appear on D2 LoD (there were only like two 4 frame ethereal pbs being used in east melee until like 2013+) , and it wasn’t until someone with a rollback method started using the Charsi quest over and over again that they flooded the market for a couple of years. I don’t expect there will be very many in D2R ever. Certainly won’t be like lod where dozens of people have them.


Just saw this. I have a feeling someone is gonna figure out a dupe method and then we will have tons of cheap sojs for re-rolling.

Who knows. A wolfie can dream!

They can also be a lot of fun. Use two HotO on swap for BO and shapeshifting. Gores are less necessary since you have crit from mastery so your boots can be dedicated to resistances and FHR. I’d go with just 20 FHR probably so the Wolfhowl can be jeweled and you can use a 12% FHR max damage charm and Verds. The rest is all very similar. Shift targeting doesn’t really work the same with feral rage as with fury is the main problem. Trouble with hammers and smite more than fury, but more defense.


the charsi quest is the imbue reward right? if we use a ethereal base will the imbue be reward be ethereal?

Yes imbue will always be eth if the input item is already eth

Now I am trying to figure out out what gives best odds at getting the rolls we need but I am reading conflicting information on decade old guides and forum posts. Some say crystal/dimensional swords have a higher chance of getting the mods we want over phase blades so is that true? And if it is does the same apply to kris/cindequas being the better options over an actual fanged knife?

does the item level matter? you want a crystal sword/dimensional because they can be ethereal, PB doesnt come that way.

This is purely because crystal and dimensional can be ethereal and phase cannot unless upgraded from one of the others in the cube.

Charsi quest is the best way to get ethereal rares, but it’s a crap shoot. If you want a shot at a great noneth fanged knife you can gamble one in act 4 or act 5 of hell. Just keep buying the Kris in the handle section until something rolls.

You have a shot at a magical cruel fanged knife of quickness which gets 2 sockets at Larzuk, or even a rare cruel fools 2 socket 40 ias.

So based off of this and other stuff I have read we can essentially go for fools/cruel/quickness if either our character level or the quality (items level) level is high enough for the mods.

So what I think this this means is we can use low level characters if its a fanged knife, otherwise our characters need to be like 70+ to attempt to get those rolls on a kris or cindequas

I would really like to work out the exact numbers needed but it will take time
