hello , the miniguide also specifies for sockets "-requirements jewels" . craft those jewels and socket them in your gearhttps://docs.median-xl.com/doc/items/cube
zod crafts can spawn with up to -10% req. , Ort crafts can spawn with up to -14% req.
gain charms that provide flat stats and %stats
you can use some "in between" crafts first , between the early game gear honorifics and the final crafts . you can MO those "in between" crafts with extra -%requirements mo's . you will replace them with the final crafts when you will get more charms in your inventory . those"in between" crafts don't have to be godly , as you will replace them anyway , they just need to be better than the early game gear .
you can also try the "lol crafts" (low ilvl crafts) as "in-between crafts" , as they have a lower level requirement and more MO space on which you can add -%requirements mo's
you can get at least half the charms with just the early game gear on
good luck !
