Yes. One AC for T6 to T10, 2 ACs for T11 to T15.


Thanks! Any idea about a recipe using ACs for rerolling rings/amulets?

That seems like a good recipe to get the right modifiers/affixes

new player, tried googling this several different ways without satisfaction..

In my unique leveling caster weapon (Demoncall) I'm considering stacking Perfect Topaz or Perfect Diamond. Am I missing something, or is Perfect Diamond strictly three times better than Perfect Topaz? Both have no diminishing returns? (other than spell focus' hard cap of 1000?) And stack intuitively, right?

I don't think it would matter, but just in case it does: I'm casting mostly Slayer and Mind Flay, and I have 122 Spell Focus and +17% to Spell Damage on my gear as is. Just want to make sure I understand the mechanics.

Thanks

What I meant was you can reroll rings/amu to new TU rings/amus with 2AC and a Oil of Enhancement, my bad.

Oh! I assume that means it's a way to roll a good unique amulet/ring? Does a item level 99 ring have a chance to roll to any unique ring including SU rarity rings?

You can only craft TU stuff, everything in here is craftable with 2AC + Oil of Enhancement. https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/items/tiereduniques
Remember there is no bases for rings like with other items, so it's random what ring/amu you get.

It is not totally random, lower lvl items have much higher chance to spawn, so this recipe is not worth it, nobody uses it to craft rings and amulets, its better to just sell your acs and buy them.

And not everyone plays online or trades.
It's still random, it's just weighted.

Ah. I doubt rings and amulets under TU are worth using late game, am I right?

Do u need an ilvl 100 amulet base to have a chance to reroll an ilvl 100 unique amulet?

I guessing realistically jewelcrafting is the main use of ACs late game (prior to doing labs).

Some rings are almost BIS, or can use until very very late game, like
Ripstar
Ripstar
Ring

Required Level: 60
Item Level: 60
+0.5625 to Maximum Damage (Based on Character Level)
+20 Life on Attack
until you get a
Giant's Knuckle
Giant's Knuckle
Ring

Required Level: 100
Item Level: 120
20% Attack Speed
Adds 10-15 damage
(5 to 10)% Life stolen per Hit
5% Deadly Strike
+25 Life Regenerated per Second
Physical Resist 5%
.
The Seal of Kharos
The Seal of Kharos
Ring

Required Level: 60
Item Level: 80
+(1 to 2) to Amazon Skill Levels
25% Cast Speed
+(11 to 15)% to Fire Spell Damage
+(16 to 25)% to Physical/Magic Spell Damage
+(11 to 15)% to Summoned Minion Life
-50 Life Regenerated per Second
in some few cases for amazons.
Witchmoon
Witchmoon
Amulet

Required Level: 100
Item Level: 100
+(10 to 20) Spell Focus
1% Chance to cast level 17 Mana Sweep on Death Blow
+(1 to 3) to All Skills
+(10 to 20)% to Spell Damage
Maximum Mana (30 to 40)%
is still one of the best amu's for mana-based builds.

You don't need the iLevel, its just weighted that its more common to get the jewelries with lower ilevel.

Cool. Thanks much of the info! Yeah ripstar sounds perfect for a bowzon.
