    ... why?

    Has nobody told you what the odds are of gambling an elite unique?

    this is the easiest way to get a wizardspike:

    collect 10 or so pgems
    go to the trade forum
    post, and await reply.

    I'm more gambling the daggers for a gull dagger, but I figure I might as well do it at a level where I might have half a shot at a wizardspike too....

    You should not be gambling for uniques, at all, especially those. Just gather some perfs like luuuuucifer said, or mf a bit and trade, or get a decent rune from the hellforge and trade that. Gambling is a waste of time (unless you want good rares...)

    The chance of gambling a unique is one in 5000.

    So if 250.000.000 gold you might have a decent chance at gambling a gull dagger.

    Wizardspike´s ILVL is 69, so it is possible to gamble it at level 65, and has the best chance (still microscopic) of showing up at level 74+.

    BTW:
    From what I´ve read, the chance of gambling a unique is 1 in 2000

    And then multiply that by the chance to get an elite item while gambling and you quickly approach the number of "Not gonna happen". Perhaps Blizz should strive to get the NGH variable recognized by the mathematics community much as Pi and e are. :buddies:

    I was doing a norm rush once, and got a gull off of andy. SnowDrake, what realm, etc. are you on? If east softcore non-ladder, I have an extra wiz-spike available (it even has an open socket on it). I'm sure we could work something out.
