Etherealness

A few questions my good people:

1.) What are the chances of a normal item to be ethereal?

2.) What are the chances of a superior item to be ethereal?

3.) What are the chances of a socketed item to be ethereal?

4.) What are the chances of a superior socketed item to be ethereal?

5.) What are the chances of a magic item to be ethereal?

6.) What are the chances of a unique item to be ethereal?

7.) What are the items that always spawn ethereal?

8.) What are the items that can never spawn ethereal? (Bows, Phase Blades, Crown of Ages, etc etc)

Thanks for answering these fiendishly incorporeal questions.

Indeed, the answer to almost all your questions is 5%. This is simply a final roll done after the generation of the item.

The following items are not checked:
Set items
Items without durability (bows, crossbows and Phase Blades)
Indestructible items (of Ages, or uniques with the Indestructible mod) - except for the handful of uniques that are specifically coded eth+Indest.

The only items that are always ethereal are uniques that are specifically coded so.
Ethereal Edge
Ghostflame
Shadowkiller
Wraithflight

The first three of those are the indestructible ones, the last is a replenish quantity.
