Might be worth doing if your ring is something like a +12, I guess, but otherwise (if possible) I'd normally buy the item rather than making it. If you *have to* try making it, it might be worth trying to buy star drills instead of tough drills.

I've tried making second sockets with tough drills quite a few times: almost every time I ended up with 7 star drills I had to use to make the item. I'd say my rate of getting a second socket without going through 7 tough drills is somewhere around 5%.

Before someone goes picking up on the fact that I've done it a lot of times but say I'd normally buy the item...I've been playing a long time and some things just haven't been available to buy within a reasonable time. Like 2-sock monk frocks.

It depends on prices on your server. If the 2-soc is nearly the same price as 7 tough drills, then I'd say go for the drills. I say this because if you happen to get lucky, you can use the Star Drills from the failures to go towards any other item you want 2-soc thus making it cheaper overall.

So, it works on the first try every time? I guess I shouldn't do the same for my 1 soc ring cause its super. I'll just buy another one or use StarDrills I guess.

I tried that already, didn't work for me. Maybe I'm just very unlucky with making second sockets.
