    First of all, you can't gamble from Larzuk. Second of all I think the dude in Act2 (Elzix, wasn't it?) is the best because I think he has reduced prices from completing the Radament quest. I could be wrong, though. Anya is good because you can refresh her inventory by popping in and out of the Pindle portal.

    But pro people gamble with Gheed. :D

    Anya's gamble inventory can be refreshed just by closing and opening the tradescreen with her.

    The question is that high ilvl items from Anya's gamble inv can be found in the Gheed's gamble inv ?

    It does not matter where you gamble. All vendors have the same possible items and the ilvl is determined by your clvl.

    I am pretty sure that the Atma quest reward does not reduce vendor prices (and if it does, it won't affect the gambling screen). Personally I prefer Gheed because he is easy to get to and the green background does wonders for my eyes.

    The advantage of gambling in hell mode is that you can sell crap results for up to 35k there while it's less in normal and nightmare.

    I would still avoid Jamella in Act IV, though.

    At least on my Mac, there is a noticeable lag while she loads her gambling screen. If you are gambling for a specific item (e.g. circlets) that can be annoying.

    OT: is this a universal problem? I have heard others have the same issue.

    i have noticed that gheed (npc) gives more +skills amus then others (after buying few hundred of them).
    single player is good for gambling cause if you set char file to be read only, and you have spend all money without buying something good, you save and exit, and nothing have changed. vice versa, if you gamble something nice (worthy of keeping), alt-tab game and unclick read only.
    also using edge reduces aditional 15 % of price

    I'm sure that's a subjective observation :tongue: You need more than just a few hundreds of tries to make meaningful statistics about it BTW.

    unfortunatly, Atma's quest reward doesn't extend to lower gambling prices.

    i checked. a circlet costs the same to gamble from Elzix as it does from anyone else.

    the point of reward in act2 from quest is because u will buy all stuff in act2 in increased cost until u finish appropriate quest.

    Cheese. Might as well download an item editor and save yourself the hassle.

    it isn't just you, that is the most gold I have ever seen and that includes diablo 1 where people would hack it realtime and cover all of tristram with gold.

    You can surely gather that much gold by trading (seems to be about 18M).

    The game once had a bug which allowed it to sell items with a certain affix for more than you paid (or something like that), producing infinite gold that way, but that bug has been fixed. If the screenshot is about such a case, the gold heaps would be closer together, however.

    Wouldn't the gold vanish in fat air before you could gamble it?

    It's going to all vanish in 3 mins by the look of it (isn't that a Classic thing where the game ends the game after Diablo dies? Been so long now I can't remember exactly, I was sure it was more like a 90 second timer).

    It takes quite long for gold to disappear AFAIK, at least in the expansion.
