Gambling (specifics, addictions, finds)

Gambling (specifics, addictions, finds)

We all know gambling is the most addicting thing on the plant (well, maybe besides smoking). This is true of Diablo 2 too, for me anyways. I always knew that uniques could be gambled in the newer versions still, just that they were much harder to come across... so what did I do? I gambled and gambled my life away for 3 straight hours.

My question is does anyone know the specifics of gambling uniques in terms of ratios?

Another question is does anyone know the specifics of gambling dual leech rings and amulets in terms of ratios?

So, after 3 long hours that seemed to pass in about 30 minutes, here's what I have to show for it: (Sorry if this should have gone in the item find thread, I was more looking for the ratio specifics, this is kind of to show something or to be used as an example.)

Now this isn't to brag or show off finds... I was just wondering if anyone has the specifics and calculations about how rare this is... that is to gamble 3 uniques and 7 high rare, 2 of which came out dual leech.

Just another note: some of these might be given away in the near future so I kind of had a predicament of placing this topic in 3 different places... I figured just the general posts would do... sorry if you feel differently.

Anyone with the specifics by all means fill me in, I've been out of the loop a long time.

EDIT: I just looked up Kiara's Guardian too and it says ladder only... doesn't that mean I shouldn't be able to find it?

Nature's Peace, Kira's Guardian, Highlord's Wrath all within 3 hours?

with 1:2000 chance for uniq, and 1:10 for elite, and rare rato of Highlord's & NP. That's hell lot of good luck.

I blowed over 100 million at once before, and spent countless of gold on gamble over time, the best uniq was Mara's amulet, and I'm already luckier than most.

Given the "discussion" about your other MFing claims, what made you think it was a good idea to brag about gambling 3 uniques in one go?

Just for reference I have never gambled any.

I pretty much only gamble amulets - never got a unique one - so you are well ahead of me.

I've gambled Tancreeds Weird (the amulet)....But maybe you should try for some damage control and tomorrow when Pindleskin drops dual IK armours not post a new thread about it...Weird things happen in Diablo all the time...I once got 3 identical set pieces in the same drop from Mephisto...but the odds of something really good like Grandfather/Cranium Basher/etc dropping is so low that you automatically get suspicious when people make claims such as yours...when you on top of that beat the gamling odds and gamble 3 uniques(I think the odds are 1/2000)...it becomes impossible to believe you. You could be that guy who wins the lottery 2 times in a row, and marries Britney Spears (stupid Kevin Federline:()...but I don't believe it.

I once had two green breast case drop at one after another, within few seconds. But the odd of highlord's and NP are more than 1:2000 (what is the chance for NP when spaw uniq ring?), and to get Kira's = 1:20000 on average. He didn't break the drop odd, since it is random, but he did get "impossible" result.

In one game where we were doing new chars, Arctic armor dropped, then less than 20 seconds later, the belt dropped, then about 5 minutes later another belt dropped, I was happy as I was playing untwinked at the time

I've gambled an absolute ton spread over many, many, many hours. Mainly circlets and ammys. I've gotten a couple of unique ammys ... but never a Kira's.

You did this all in 3 hours? Interesting.

You need to stop gambling D2 gold and start buying lotto tix. Win 100 million or so and then buy Blizzard and get that patch 1.10a out in a jiffy and then get D3 out right after that.

First, let me explain that we're (at least me anyway) calling you a liar. There are bound to be people that get lucky. When people get lucky they're more likely to come here and discuss it. So people with experiences like yours appear more often than they should, if everyone were coming here to post their results. So it's natural for people not to believe you.

So... understand this, and if you don't enjoy being called a liar, simply don't post stuff like this. I'd bet that 90% of the people reading your threads consider you "tainted". It's pretty much the same reaction you'ld get if you kept buying new cars each month. People would begin to wonder where the money was coming from. Police would probably investigate.

If indeed you are interested in the odds, but not to show off your particular results... don't post your results. Just say "I've had some wierd luck gambling"... or somthing like that.

It's not just that, people get lucky all the time (getting WF or HBBF right?) however you stated in just 3 new posts that you were having alot of high runes, alot of MF luck, a lvl 99 char and now gambling odds that are astronomical. Combine that with the fact that you're pretty new here (I know I shouldn't look at that but I still do, bite me anyone ;)) and.. well.. not legit in my eyes.
I have gabled alot, and I mean alot of hours, I only once got a set amulet (some lowish one) and a dwarfstar.

Do you just copy and paste that message in every reply you make or what?
How about I copy and paste this from your very first post a year ago, 3/28/04.

"I haven't really looked around the forums too much and just started playing single player (with the help of my brother 99 mf sorc)".

I thought you had your own lvl 99 sorc, not your brothers. And, where did his come from?

is this a legit lvl 99 caracter or one of those 'testing' characters? since it's not yours - you didn't actually do the leveling up yourself - you can't verify 100% that it's a legit character, I would suggest, if you wish to trade here, you delete all stashes & characters and start over with a legit lvl 1 character. As of now, I doubt many people here will consider you a 'safe' trade partner. Since you have been offering trades as well as MP games, determining your legitness is critical, and for what I have seen, it's not there yet.

It might be worth considering the amount of gold you would have to spend, in 3 hrs of gambling. I can go through 2.5mil in less than 3 minutes. So, let's see, that's about 150 mil in 3 hrs. I would have to dupe gold to get that much.

I have gambled a LOT in my D2 career, but I haven't found the amount of uniques you've found in 3 hours (at least you claim that). I've found a Nagel, Manald Heal, The Cats Eye and 2-3 set amulets neither of which valuable (no Tal's ammy there. I wish) in all my gambling efforts. So I don't believe you. Especially considering some other recent posts of yours.
