Not long ago, I reached lvl 88 with my Assasin, and thought: 'wow, nice, time for some fine-tuning in gear' so I quickly grabbed some hammers and started to knock out the overused moonstones from my claws to replace them with some higher ones. Oh the suprise..

So, Uber Gems say lvl req: 88, my claw had a lvl req of 85, but as soon as I've put the first Gem in it, the lvl req was raised to a whopping 90!! Why is that? Did I miss something.. ?

If anyone could drop me some help with this issue, it'd be more than welcome.

Some details:
The claws are 2 upgraded Jade Talons, which had lvlreq60 base and jumped to lvlreq85 after upgrades. Now it has two Pestilence Eyes in it, with lvlreq90..
Also, just before I did this, I made an Andy's Visage (lvl88) socketed, to put a Celestial Sphere in it (diamond), and there were no lvlreq jump.

And right now, I'm weaponless in the middle of the Kurast Jungle.. :shock:

They are upgraded from exceptional to elite. When you do that, they gain the stat levelreq +2. This stat adds +2 to the final level req of the item (after socketables). If you put a zod in then, the level req would jump to 92.

The same is true of normal > exceptional, except the levelreq stat is 8, so if you upgraded biggins bonnet to exceptional then to elite and put a zod in it, the level req would be zod req + 8 + 2. so a level req 100 biggins bonnet ;)

Thanks for your help, PureRage, that I did not know..

Seems there's nothing to do, but to crawl my way through the jungle with my hands and teeth until I'm strong enough to use them again.. oh well.

Prepare to meet your doom, flayers :twisted:

I'm sure someone must have a couple of spare pairs you could upgrade again and stick some emeralds in. If you are short on gear try the low level gift thread.

Where does it specify that things are added in that way? Wouldn't it be level req of Shako +2, or level req of zod +2, whichever is higher? I guess I didn't realize it was this harsh in the way things are added.

its the level req of the item after sockeatbles are taken into account. The stat "levelreq" is added after all other level requirements.

It is the level req of zod +2 if you just updrade from exceptional to elite (hence a level 88 gem on an upgraded item puting the level req at 90).

if you upgrade a norm item to excep then again to elite, you have +10 levelreq stat stuck on the item so a zod rune in that item results in a 100 level req item.
