Talk:Ancient Orb

I had removed all the info regarding ilvl as it is uncertain.

Here is the content:

Like an Orb of ChanceOrb of ChanceStack Size: 20Upgrades a normal item to a random rarityRight click this item then left click a normal item to apply it.
Shift click to unstack.
, the result of using an Ancient Orb is not restricted by item level.[1] Therefore, a unique with a high item level requirement (like SkyforthSkyforth
Sorcerer Boots
Quality: +20%
Energy Shield: 58
Requires Level 67, 123 Int+(60-120) to maximum Mana
30% increased Movement Speed
25% chance to gain a Power Charge on Critical Strike
6% reduced Mana Reserved
You have no Life Regeneration
Stun Threshold is based on 500% of your Mana instead of Life
The quick die young, the brilliant go mad,
and the powerful stand alone in a wasteland of their own creation.
) may be obtained from any unique item of the appropriate class, regardless of the base's item level. Similarly, when attempting to obtain a unique that drops at low item levels (like Taste of HateTaste of Hate
Sapphire Flask
Lasts 4.00 Seconds
Consumes 30 of 60 Charges on use
+50% to Cold Resistance
20% less Cold Damage taken
Requires Level 1820% of Physical Damage from Hits taken as Cold Damage during Flask effect
Gain (15-20)% of Physical Damage as Extra Cold Damage during effect
30% chance to Avoid being Chilled during Flask effect
30% chance to Avoid being Frozen during Flask effect
A sip will freeze your lips,
A swig will chill your heart,
A glass will still your soul.
Right click to drink. Can only hold charges while in belt. Refills as you kill monsters.
), no advantage is gained by using a low item level base. Unlike the Orb of Chance, the Ancient Orb is able to reforge sockets and links on the item.

However, from at least version 3.2.0 Ancient Orbs are to some degree restricted by item level or at least influenced by it. This can be useful to boost the chances to get a desired lower level unique (like HeadhunterHeadhunter
Leather Belt
Requires Level 40+(25-40) to maximum Life+(40-55) to Strength
+(40-55) to Dexterity
+(50-60) to maximum Life
(20-30)% increased Damage with Hits against Rare monsters
When you Kill a Rare monster, you gain its Modifiers for 20 seconds
"A man's soul rules from a cavern of bone, learns and
judges through flesh-born windows. The heart is meat.
The head is where the Man is."

or LycosidaeLycosidae
Rawhide Tower Shield
Quality: +20%
Chance to Block: (29%-31%)
Armour: (207-255)
Movement Speed: -3%
Requires Level 11, 33 Str+(10-20) to maximum Life+(120-160) to Armour
+(30-40) to maximum Life
Your hits can't be Evaded
+(3-5)% Chance to Block
Adds 250 to 300 Cold Damage to Counterattacks
A true predator does not chase; It waits.

It should be noted that using Ancient Orb on Shaper or Elder items will remove the influence.

Moreover, new video that claim it is not restricted by ilvl,[4] was using a very low ilvl belt, and the item had change to another item, so such forcing the item to change to another item that had ilvl lower than min level to equip, is not sufficient to say it is not restricted by ilvl unless the video shown a ilvl 2 belt can change to much rarer very high ilvl belt.
