• Ebonsteel Belt Buckle
  • Use: Permanently attach an ebonsteel belt buckle onto a belt, adding a socket to the belt.

    Attaching the belt buckle causes the item to become soulbound.  Cannot be used on items level 375 or higher.
  • Requires Level 80
  • Sell Price: 4g 50s


This item is crafted with Blacksmithing (525); taught by  [Plans: Ebonsteel Belt Buckle].

Materials required:
Inv misc volatileearth.png 4x [Volatile Earth] Inv misc pyriumbar.png 4x [Elementium Bar]
Inv misc pyriumbar 02.png 4x [Pyrium Bar]


The socket added is a prismatic socket. If the belt already has sockets, the new socket will appear below them, and leaving it empty won't suppress the socket bonus. The buckle won't add a socket bonus.

This is the only type of enhancement that can be applied to a belt, unless the wearer is an engineer.

For belts below item level 300, a cheaper  [Eternal Belt Buckle] can be used instead.

While the tooltip says the maximum item level is 375, it can be applied to any Cataclysm equipment.
