Socket items are unique equipment items which have +Sockets bound to the item! You can insert special items known as 'Seed Spheres' into these +Sockets to add additional options to the item! These 'Seed Spheres' can be crafted, via NPC Seed Master, by refining excellent and ancient items into a 'Seed'.
Non-mastery socket items can be transformed via Seed Master.
Seed Spheres # Seed Spheres are man-made artifacts which can be inserted into the open +Sockets of items. To create a Seed Sphere, you must first craft a Seed crystal. Then you can combine it with a Sphere to create a Seed Sphere (Lv 1). Furthermore, you can increase its item level up to level 10! When inserted into an item, the option which appears on the Seed Sphere will become bound to the item. Lastly, you should know that Seed Spheres can be removed from items and reused.
