Normally, corrupting an item makes it impossible to apply further currency to it, aside from changing sockets with the crafting bench. This item offers an exception to this rule, making it possible to corrupt it over and over again until the corruption outcome turns it into a rare item, at which point it loses the "Can have up to 5 Implicit Modifiers while Item has this Modifier" mod and therefore all accumulated, powerful corruption effects.

It is even possible to reroll implicit vaal modifiers by further corrupting this item when it already has 5 of them.[1] In case of a Vaal Orb, it could randomly change one implicit to another one.

Chances for one of these corruption outcomes are 20% respectively:

  • No effect (other than adding the corrupted property if not already present).
  • Changing one or more sockets to white sockets.
  • Adding a special vaal implicit OR replacing an existing one if there are already 5.
  • Rerolling the item into a rare item with randomized sockets, links and six random affixes. This outcome removes all accumulated implicits and white sockets, while making further corruptions impossible.

Therefore this item can become incredibly powerful and versatile, through up to 5 vaal implicits and white sockets. But every corruption carries the risk of turning it into a rare item, removing this unique property.
