Description: A mysterious orb. It corrupts an item granting it new properties and, in some cases, even reforging it into a totally new item.

Recipe: Place the Orb of Corruption into the Horadric Cube with another item and press the Transmute button twice.

  • Any item can be corrupted with the recipe above, EXCEPT as follows (cannot be corrupted):
  • Normal / White Items
  • Items that already have sockets
  • Ethereal items

An item can only be corrupted once, which will display the work "Corrupted" in red text under the item's descrption. Any subsequent attempts at corruption have no effect (and will not consume an Orb of Corruption).

Items that have been upgraded (e.g. normal -> exception -> elite) can still be corrupted, and vice versa. However, some items may benefit from being upgraded prior to corruption to increase the maximum number of possible sockets obtained by a successful corruption.

  • For example, Skin of the Vipermagi has a base maximum of 2 sockets (Serpentskin Armor) but an upgraded maximum of 4 sockets (Wyrmhide)
