    Just luck.

    If you consider it legit, you can keep rerolling the world and checking a small map (Crow's Pass is popular for this purpose) for the enchanter you want.

    You can also spawn him via the console, but that's unquestionably cheating.

    I think the socketer has a higher chance of appearing in caves. At least that's where I always seem to find him.

    The developer console is meant for helping mod makers test their mods, but it can also be used for cheating.

    To enable: Find settings.txt in your data directory (for Windows it's "C:\Users\<Username>\Documents\My Games\Runic Games\Torchlight 2\") and change the line that says "console :0" to "console :1"

    To use: Press [insert] to open or close the console. Google can find you a full list of commands. To spawn the socket enchanter, use "UNIT Enchanter_socketer"

    Important note: Using most console commands will flag your character as a cheater. If you want to remove this flag, you need to hack your save file. Rapid Respec (see my sig) automates this hack.

    Nope. All the maps that can spawn random enchanters use the same spawnclass. It's pure chance.

    He appears randomly wherever enchanters are configured to, however you are right with the caves - there is a tile in the caves set that contains the socketer, so your chances of finding him in caves map is much higher.

    I stand corrected.

    Awesome, thanks for the confirmation. When I try elsewhere 8 times out of 10 I just get the useless master enchanter. Don't know why he's so common when Greezo is available full time in the Mapworks hub.

    Hehe no worries, it's on the 1X1_N_JT_A chunk, I saw that as a potential exploit (didn't make sense, it would make sense if there was a random enchanter there) so I removed it in Unearthed Arcana. Given the situation with the Mapworks Enchanter I offset it to make the probabilities for each enchanter to appear much more linear (they pretty much all stand an equal chance). I did wonder if it was a 'leftover' in lieu of the removal of Baldrick The Enchanter from the removed 'Hidden Costs' quest.
