How to add sockets to a Diamond Mail

You can add sockets to a Diamond Mail by giving the item to Larzuk as a quest reward. Larzuk will always add 4 sockets (if the iLevel is high enough), the maximum. You can also add sockets with the following horadric cube recipe. This recipes will not work for low quality items.

Transmute normal body armor, a Tal rune, a Thul rune, and a Perfect Topaz to create a socketed body armor of the same type.
