How to add sockets to a Circlet

You can add sockets to a Circlet by giving the item to Larzuk as a quest reward. Larzuk will always add 2 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 helm, a Ral rune, a Thul rune, and a Perfect Sapphire to create a socketed helm of the same type.

11 socket 1 in 6 (16.67%)
22 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)
32 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)
42 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)
52 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)
62 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)

The maximum amount of sockets an item can roll with depends on the iLevel of the item. The iLevel is equal to the monster level (mLevel) the item dropped from, the mLevel is equal to the area level (aLevel). Champions will have an mLevel of aLevel+2, Uniques and their minions aLevel+3, and Super Uniques will have a predefined mLevel.
