I have found 5 or 6 items now, all jewelry, that have no attributes. Just a socket and that is it. Is this a known bug, or is it just the luck of the draw? I would think an item is completely worthless without any attributes at all.

    Shouldn't this be magic items with no attributes - though as mentioned, sockets is an attribute!

A Socket is an attribute.

The presence of one or more sockets is considered an affix, just like +Dex or +Magic Find.

Since some blue items only have one Affix, a single socket is a valid variant of this.

    @Emerica. Not really. Since gems don't have a required minimum level, you can potentially socket an extremely powerful gem on a low item. Commented May 28, 2012 at 4:02
  • @JamesJiao On the other hand, you can find a "Requires level 52" ring with only a socket. (You could get the same thing at, for instance, level 17) Commented May 28, 2012 at 4:12
  • @RavenDreamer Yep. Not saying all of them are valuable. Was just trying to find a valid counterargument to Emerica's comment :). Commented May 28, 2012 at 4:13

The is a socketed item (combined with the biggest stones they can be quit powerful).
