Socketing in TC

This used to be a fairly common practice, but has anyone recently (perhaps within the last year or so) gotten a socket, or a second socket in their items while met spamming in tc?

If you could include your item type, level, quality, and how many sockets it had before you got one in tc, it would be appriciated.
Trying to figure out just how small the rate is now. . .

quite possible, extremely low rates.

+ one socket means nothing.

if you can't bulk your sockets, you are playing the wrong game.

Trying to figure out just how small the rate is now. . .

Within the last 8 months I made a first socket in my archer's bow. It was the lvl 50 super bow that came with the newbie packs after my archer hit lvl 50. But this was done when I was leveling it up in the market with mets. Non rb bow super and upgrading it to lvl 60 it gained a socket.

As for in TC, my husband who is also my in game spouse made a 2nd socket in his tao robe - two times. Different robes both times in the last 4-6 months. The first one was an elite +4 or +5 robe, we spammed mets to get it to lvl 120 so he could perm a p2 Dragon Soul on it. After de-leveling it in the market he spammed mets in tc to level it back to his current level of 70 and gained a 2nd socket. Sold the robe and bought the super +4 1 soc -dmg robe in the shopping rush to replace the one he sold. Just 2-4 days ago we spammed it back up to level 120 to p3 perma a dragon soul on it, once done we de-leveled it back down and then he went back to tc to spam mets to level it back up again and once again he gained a 2nd socket in his robe. This one he has no plans of selling at this time as it's a super robe and he has upgraded the + from a 4 to +5.

So it is still possible but rare.

I have also been able to make 3 or 4 normal riding crops that dropped from the monsters into refined by repairing them at the pharmacist in tc, their dura was anywhere from 1-4 out of the max dura.

Again possible but rare.

I've gotten two sockets in my gear in the past month or so. My first socket was in a elite +3 level 82 or what ever level a taos cap is upgrading it to level 97, I got a second socket in that one.

My next one was a elite +3 necklace, it was non socket before.

I doubt I used more then 10 mets on each item.

I also got a few quality upgrades if your interested.
