Just some quick questions

1) Can I cube runes Thul and above? Like Ist etc. If so what is the formula? 2x or 3x of the lower rune?

2) In normal where is more likely to drop a sol?

3) What weapon is best to make insight?

:)

3 Thul Runes + 1 Chipped Topaz = Amn Rune
3 Amn Runes + 1 Chipped Amethyst = Sol Rune
3 Sol Runes + 1 Chipped Sapphire = Shael Rune
3 Shael Runes + 1 Chipped Ruby = Dol Rune

3 Dol Runes + 1 Chipped Emerald = Hel Rune
3 Hel Runes + 1 Chipped Diamond = Io Rune
3 Io Runes + 1 Flawed Topaz = Lum Rune
3 Lum Runes + 1 Flawed Amethyst = Ko Rune
3 Ko Runes + 1 Flawed Sapphire = Fal Rune
3 Fal Runes + 1 Flawed Ruby = Lem Rune
3 Lem Runes + 1 Flawed Emerald = Pul Rune
2 Pul Runes + 1 Flawed Diamond = Um Rune
2 Um Runes + 1 Topaz = Mal Rune
2 Mal Runes + 1 Amethyst = Ist Rune
2 Ist Runes + 1 Sapphire = Gul Rune
2 Gul Runes + 1 Ruby = Vex Rune
2 Vex Runes + 1 Emerald = Ohm Rune
2 Ohm Runes + 1 Diamond = Lo Rune
2 Lo Runes + 1 Flawless Topaz = Sur Rune
2 Sur Runes + 1 Flawless Amethyst = Ber Rune
2 Ber Runes + 1 Flawless Sapphire = Jah Rune
2 Jah Runes + 1 Flawless Ruby = Cham Rune
2 Cham Runes + 1 Flawless Emerald = Zod Rune

Not sure about this.

Any 4 socket POLEARM, depending on what your merc can use. Obviously, at higher levels, you'll want an elite pole for higher damage.

Wrong. A Yari is a Spear, not a Polearm. I have seen the most commonly used item as a Colossus Voulge, and eth is better.

CV is useful because of Larzuk. I would say a threasher or something like that with lower strength is useful, though. Problem is that Larzuk does not give 4 sockets for those.

Btw.. may I know if nitemare drops these weapons to make insight? And am I right to say that only CV when socketed gives 4 sockets?

Voulge, Bill (exceptional Voulge), and Colossus Voulge (Elite Voulge) are the only poles that get 4 sockets from the socket quest (since they are the only ones with 4 sockets max).

You find Bills as early as act 5 normal and CVs as early as act 5 NM (I believe- someone correct me if I'm wrong).
