An Orb of Fusing is a currency item that can be used to re-roll the links between sockets on a weapon or piece of armour. The colour and number of sockets remain unchanged.

Obtaining

Orbs of Fusing are uncommon currency items that can be dropped by slain monsters, chests, and destructible containers. They also drop from Arcanist's Strongboxes.

Orbs of Fusing may be obtained from vendors.

Spending

Orbs of Fusing are primarily used to modify the linked sockets on an item. If an item has some quality, each 1% quality improves the result by 1%. While the chance of obtaining three or four linked sockets is relatively high, the chance of obtaining five or six linked sockets is very low, and on average requires hundreds or even thousands of attempts. The probability of obtaining six linked sockets is very close to 1/1500[1], meaning that for risk-averse players it is generally worthwhile to use the Artisan's Bench instead of using Orbs of Fusing manually.

If one wants to avoid randomness, one can instead use the Artisan's Bench provided by Vorici.
