1 gem from the next level

One of the most used recipes in the game because it's the easiest way to obtain Perfect gems

Potions

Requirements:Result:Notes:
3 x 1 x Very useful recipe. Unnecessary small rejuv can be transmuted to Full
3 Health Potions + 3 x Mana Potions + 1 x Standard Gem like 1 x
This is also a useful recipe becausae you can basically buy the potions from the vendors and you just need the normal type gem.
Any potions would do, even Minor!
3 Health Potions + 3 x Mana Potions + 1 x Chipped Gem like 1 x Again, potions would do, even Minor!

Rings & Amulets

Requirements:Result:Notes:
3 Magic Rings (Blue) 1 Random Magic Amulet You can't make +2 x skill amulets. If you transmute rings make sure that you are using blue rings found in high level zones on Hell
3 Magic Amulets 1 Random Magic Ring Same
6 Perfect Gems (1 from each type) + 1 x Amulet (blue any kind) Prismatic Amulet 16-20 all resistance Amulet. Prismatic is a prefix so you can get a good suffix too. like "Of Squid" +80 life
1 Magic Ring + 1 x + 1 x Antidote Potion 1 Jade Ring Ring with 21-30 % poison resist
1 Magic Ring + 1 x + 1 x Exploding Potion 1 Garnet Ring Ring 21-30 % fire resist
1 Magic Ring + 1 x + 1 x Rejuvenation Potion 1 Coral Ring Ring 21-30 % lightning resist

Socketing

Requirements:Result:Notes:
3 + 1 x Rare Item + Stone of Jordan Will add 1 x Socket to the Rare Item IF the item is socketable Works only on Rare Items
3 Flawless Gems + 1 x Magic Weapon Socketed Magic Weapon This will reset prefixes and suffixes of the item you will get new stats
1 x + 1 x + 1 x + Normal Weapon Socketed Normal Weapon of same type This is a very important recipe. Used to socket items so Runewords can be used. Resulted sockets are random from the min-max range of the weapon type. Ethereal is ok(?)
1 x + + Any Socketed Item Remove sockets from the item Used for accidental sockets. The gems/jewels inside the item are destroyed

Important! The so called "eBugged"

Ebugging is a bug where by using the normal recipe to socket an armor or a shield on ethereal item (which has 1.5 defense of the normal base) causes the ethereal 1.5 bonus to apply again. 1.5x 1.5x = 2.25x the base defense of a non-ethereal armor

Requirements:Result:Notes:
1 x + 1 x + 1 x + Normal Body Armor Socketed Body Armor From 1 x to 4 sockets - random. Item must be Normal (white). Magic/Superior/Low Quality will not work. Ethereal is ok (will cause the item to eBug)
1 x + 1 x + 1 x + Normal Helm Socketed Helm Same
1 x + 1 x + 1 x + Normal Shield Socketed Shield Same

Other

Requirements:Result:Notes:
3 + 1 x Rare Item + Stone of Jordan Sockets a Rare item Rare items have a max of 1 x socket. Very unpopular recipe
1 Perfect Skull + 1 x Rare Item + Stone of Jordan 1 High Quality New Rare Item of the same type Formula is - ilvl = int(.66 * clvl) + int(.66 * ilvl), ilvl = .66 times clvl + .66 times ilvl of the original item
2 x Quivers of Bolts 1 Quiver of Arrows Random quantity
2 x Quivers of Arrows 1 Quiver of Bolts Random quantity
3 Perfect Gems (of any type) + 1 x Magic Item 1 New Random Magic Item from the same kind Works based on Item levels(ilvl). Works for Charms and Jewels. If you want to transmute charms - use high item level items. If you want to try for Skiller Grand Charms (Grand Charm +1 Skill/Class) use charms found in late Nightmare Act IV and V
