Socket Creation: Create a socket on a weapon or equipment using a Socket Hammer.(Cash items cannot be used.) After a socket has been created using a Socket Hammer, a Socket Card can be applied for additional bonuses on the Equipment or Weapon.
Socket Restore: Restore the socket by removing the applied option. A Socket Option Removing Scroll is used to remove a socket option. "Removes a previously applied socket card, card will disappear"
Socket Recovery: Restore the broken socket so that socket cards can be added. A Broken Socket Recovery Powder will bring the socket to its original status after the socket creation has failed. If the socket creation fails, the next socket cannot be created.
Place the equipment which has a Soul Grade of [Advanced] or higher in the central slot. The required level of Socket Hammer will be displayed.

There are 3 types of ingredients that are used during socket extraction, ingredients gathered from Windy Farm, Elemental Bless from the Dungeon of Spirits and Zodiac Fragments from Galaxia Dungeon.
