Can someone explain to me why my Lionpaw (T4) shoots from req. lvl 120 to 135+ when I add a jewel to it? None of my other items upgraded through MO's do this?

If you add something to a socket that is higher level than the item itself, it adds the level to the level req of the item. It's a weird thing and you see it a lot trying to socket higher level runes into low tus. Just unsocket the jewel and it should be fine

The required level of the boots is 120.. any of the runes (level 100 and lower) or jewels (rq level 62-64, ilvl 70-99) seem to pump up the level. I'm not understanding why it keeps bumping the level up when I put something in.

The original boot ilvl is 79 and req level is 48.

This isn't making any sense lol

It's because you pumped up the level of the boots with mos.

I'm sure someone with more mechanics knowledge than me can answer this with math, I just know it's a thing

Final lvl req = item's base lvl req OR lvl req of the highest socketable + lvls from MOs.

Since the boots have low lvl req, anything you insert will raise the base lvl req to that of the rune/jewel (from 48 to 60+ first), then the lvls from MOs are added on top. That's why.

Perfect, thanks!
