Alright, I rarely post on forums when i have an issue in game such as this. But it is absolutely out of hand if I am truly able to add a socket to my Chantodo's Will Wand. As of now I have wasted over 25+ forgotten souls on this.
Now i am aware of RNG, I play wow too. But I am starting to feel as though the "possible properties" tab is incorrect in stating i can add a socket to my wand. I actually am NEVER even getting any other properties apart from + xxx-xxx DMG. No AOE Damage, No Fear on Hit, nothing at all. JUST + DAMAGE...
Why is this. is the proc chance on a socket just incredibly low or am I wasting mats due to an incorrect tooltip
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
You have to pay attention to WHICH stat you are trying to swap. Not all stats give a possibility of a socket. click the ? next to the stat you wish to reroll to see the possible outcomes.
That being said, I know 100% it's possible to Enchant a socket on a Chantodo's Wand, cuse I have one and got the socket roll on my first try, :P
I am looking at the possible stats, I just don't understand how it can give me
+ xxx-xxx DAMAGE over and over and over again with no other variables. I feel like it's bugged. This screenshot is from attempt 30 now, i have seen absolutely nothing but
+ xxx-xxx DMG
+ xxx-xxx Frost DMG
That can't be right.....
I wish it was possible to make it painfully clear that no matter how many times you roll, it doesn't bring you close to getting the one property you want. Every attempt you make grants you 2 options, yes? The first option has a 1/14 chance of getting a socket. The second option has a 1/14 chance of getting the socket.
that's less than 10% chance each time
p = 0.0714
You have about a 7% chance of a socket occering per each of the two given option if ... IF there is an even weight among those 14 options. I suppose there is.
But what I mean to say that for every failure, the chance of less failure on your next try is not reduced. It is probable that you NEVER
nnever never neve nven nver
see the socet roll
Granted that would be HIGHLY improbable, but not impossible. Understanding probability may be as impossible as understanding infinitely.
summation(9/10^(n), n = 1 to infinity) = 1? How can that be? There's an infinite number of nines to the right. That means it's always less than one. No. False. It is one. When you can understand that, maybe you can understand probabilty. There is no defined limit on how many times you can fail at getting that one socket.

To be fair, if you consider the entire set of thirty rolls, it is unlikely to fail to get that result at least once (too lazy to work out how unlikely it is, started to, but gave up four rolls in because it involves more repetition than I want to bother with and I can't recall a shortcut). However, you're correct that since the rolls have already been done, future rolls remain at the same odds.
If you have a backup-item you could try to just accept one of the options and hope that that helps. Or you could just wait and hope that it's indeed something that needs to be fixed.. which it might be, as you're not the only one who's reporting that to happen.
One simple answer: You can not get the socket from swapping XXX - XXX dam, because your weap no longer have enough average dam. Just imagine if you can get the socket, how much the weapon's dps? It could go very low like 10xx dps. You've just wasted your mats and that weap. I think the tooltip gets wrong when it shows that the socket is an option. My opinion.
RIP wand =(
Edit: It is interesting to learn that if you *do* have a perfectly rolled weapon with a socket already, you can put the element of your choice on there.
So... good job for science >.<

It's fairly obvious if you would just learn what the possibilities are.
Takes about 10 seconds.
40 rolls on an amulett to never ever even get the crit hit damage category sounds to me like it is very very unlikely, especially since I got only 10 possible affixes to roll from. But I am mostly stuck on vit rolls ...
Would be nice to get a blue response to this, whether either it is just rng and we can keep rolling, or whether indeed there is a problem and if we get stuck, we should not waste our ressources.
