How to specify this in trade site?

I want to buy a 6-socket armour where the socket colours and links are:

- 4 blue, all linked to each other
- 2 red, linked to each other

* Note that there's NO links between the reds and the blues.

So it should look something like this:

B-B
¦
B-B

R-R

------------

So in the trade site for number of sockets, I specify 2 reds and 4 blues.

But the Links section seems to have no way to define what I want.

Whatever I put there I seem to get blues linked to reds or a fully-linked item with all the sockets linked up.

Set links to 4 set colors.

You could look for a similar 6L and hope that the guy tries to scam you.
Set 4B and 2R in the sockets fields.
Set min and max links fields to 4B.

Carefully ignore any where the 2Rs aren't linked.

You win the internet today sir, that's brilliant!

Thanks for the replies so far, but none of those work.

There doesn't seem to be a way to set the links section to say "4 blue linked" and "2 red linked" on the same item.

I've tried quite a few combinations and they all produce jumbled up colours and links.
you arent doing it right.


this search doesnt get it PERFECT, but it gets damn close. you get the following outcomes:
4 blue linked, 2 red unlinked at the top/bottom
4 blue linked, 2 red linked and top/bottom
4 blue linked, 1 red at both top and bottom (cant be saved)

Thanks Thror2k5, that's workable but not perfect, as you say.

It seems unintuitive (to me) that the number 4 goes in max not min (makes it sound like I want a 4 skt item).

I think the UI needs some work tbh.
others above already gave best ways to search for it.

but since its not 6 linked this would be fairly easy to do yourself(only exception being maybe on an evasion chest).

for int base, set item to 3 sockets, do 3 red, alternate 4 socket/3 socket bench craft until 4th socket is RED, alternate 5/4 and 6/5 until last sockets are blue.

do fusings until links are what you want. This method will allow you to get a significantly better chest most likely that trying to buy something with set colors/links

for Str base, chromatic orbs, then get links as you want with fusings.
Just to clarify: each linked socket group on an item is matchable in the "Links" filter so the most links you want in the most-linked group is 4 hence max 4.
