    Crafting amulet question

    I heard that you need to be at least lvl 90 to gamble amulets and craft and have a shot in making those 20fcr amulets.. is this true? i'm not lvl 90 yet but I've been using worldstone, pits, sewers lvl 2 amulets to craft at lvl **.. but i havent made anything over 15fcr yet. Tried about 20 times.. bad luck or because I need to lvl up more?

    1 - 20FCR can be made at lvl 1 I think.

    2 - However, +2 class skills needs lvl 93 and crafting amulets you gamble yourself to always have a chance of getting +2 class skills.

    3 - 20fcr isn't very rare, but expect to spend a LOT of tries getting a really good one.

    4 - with +2 class skills, even a 15fcr one could be worth a lot, depending on build/FCR breakpoints.

    if u have crafted a 15 fcr one already, u are certainly able to make a 20 fcr one too.

    it works like this:
    the craft recipe gives u randomly 5-10 fcr
    there is an affix that gives u 10 fcr

    if u hit the affix with the craft and get 10 fcr out of the random role from the recipe u have ur 20 fcr one
    thus far u hit the affix and had 5 fcr out of the random role -> 15 fcr

    ok i should have been more specific. I want to be able to craft a 2 all skills, 15+fcr, resists amulet. What is the lowest lvl character I need that can GAMBLE for the amulet (so the ilvl on the amulet is high enough) in order to potentially make this amulet.

    **, but only 10% of all the amulets you gamble will be high enough.

    at 90, 50% will be high enough, and at 92, 90% of them will be high enough.

    son of a ... which clvl is 100% lol? Eh.. even at 90%, I'm not liking the idea of some of my amulets being destined for mediocrity. Thanks for the info

    you would have to be level 95 since the amulets ilvl needs to be 90+ for the chance of getting +2 skills. when you gamble at level 90 say, you will be randomly getting ilvls between 85 and 95. so at clvl 95 youll be gambling ilvls between 90 and 99

    leveling up kinda sucks with my GF barb so heres what i do: i gamble amulets like crazy and keep whatever ones have the +2 skills prefix. thats the only way you can know for sure that your amulet is ilvl 90+ since there are no other sufixes or prefixes with that high of ilvl requirment... i usually get at least one, maybe two if im lucky for every 4 million gold i spend. and it only takes about ten minutes of doing council runs to get that much, so whatev. plus ive gotten some other cool rare circlets and amulets in the process :)

    Your blue amulet doesn't need to be level 90+

    Formula for crafting ilvl is:

    ilvl = int(.5 * clvl) + int(.5 * ilvl)

    Minimum character level needed for all crafted amulet ilvls to be greater than or equal to 90 is 93 with a gambled amulet.

    ilvl = int (.5*93) + int(.5***) = 46 + 44 = 90. (** being lowest possible roll of a gambled amulet at level 93)

    Yeah, i know nothing about crafting, but I was always "aware" that lvl 93 was the level for gambling in this case.
