How to add Sockets in diablo 3

There is no way to add a socket to an item using vanilla Diablo 3. As of Reaper of Souls, the Mystic can enchant an item to add a socket, assuming the following are true: The item can potentially have a socket (i.e. you can’t enchant gloves to add a socket) The item has no sockets currently.

Ramaladni’s Gift

Some of you have been wondering if youll be able to re-roll the gifted socket from Ramalandis Gift, and thats a good question. I dug around to find out, and the answer is that the socket this Legendary consumable provides to a weapon is not eligible for Enchanting. Of course, this is still under development, though, so theres a chance that it will change before all is said and done.

Ramalandis Gift (or RG, or Ramas) is a consumable added to Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls in Patch 2.1. This object looks like a legendary material when dropped by monsters, and using it up allows a character to add a socket to a weapon, providing the weapon does not already have one. (Weapons found with a socket can have it enchanted away, then replaced by the RG.)

Fans learned of the Ramaladnis Gift via datamining before it was officially announced, and Blizzard replied to questions about the item once it was public.[2][3] [blue]Heres how Ramalandis Gift is currently intended to work. This is all with the caveat that its still under development, and potentially subject to change:

There have been many requests from fans to make the RG work on other item slots, but so far it remains only usable on weapons. The RG would be of great benefit to use on jewelery, since Patch 2.1 introduced Legendary Gems which can only be socketed in rings and amulets; item slots where sockets were formerly considered undesirable.

Prior to Ramaladnis Gift being added to the game, weapon sockets were considered all-but mandatory, and thus weapons without a socket were unused by well-geared characters. For those players, not only did a weapon have to have a socket, but also a good DPS roll and +mainstat as well. Thus a weapon could roll with two of the three and be useful after an enchant, but a weapon that didnt roll with either mainstat or a socket was generally considered worthless. Ramaladnis Gift makes this easier to surmount.
