Transmute normal shield, a Tal rune, an Amn rune, and a Perfect Ruby to create a socketed shield of the same type.

22 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 weapon. 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.
