    Gambling

    Which act is the best for gambling? I'm looking in particular for a stone of jordan ring or a decent grim shield to make a spirit.
    Thanks!

    It doesn't matter which act.

    By the way, you cannot gamble a grim shield to make Spirit in because:
    1) gambling will not give you a grey item to socket
    2) grim shields only have a max of 2 sockets; Spirit requires 4.

    The act doesnt affect gambling, your lvl does. If you want to gamble a soj remember that its quite a low chance to gamble any unique. ( ofc, if you are lucky all can happen :laugh: )

    I wouldn't count on gambling an SOJ either, 1/2000 for a unique ring, and then an SOJ has a rarity of 1 among unique rings, meaning you'll likely get dozens of other unique rings first.

    As long as you are under lvl 20 you have a good chance to buy(not gamble) a white/grey monarch or a paladin schild for your spirit.
    A white morarch or paladin shild will get 4 sox at Larzuk.
    For gambling a soj you need to be between lvl 42 and lvl 51 for a 1 soj out of 62000 rings chance if thr formula I remember is right.
    Under lvl 37 is's impossible to get a soj and at lvl 80 hopeless

    Monarch:

    At L20, the chance to gamble an elite item like a monarch is zero, as its base qlvl is 72. In fact, not even a single exceptional item is possible because the highest base qlvl possible for exceptional items would be 25 at L20 (with a chance of 0.1% :thumbsup: ) and AFAIK all exceptional items have a base qlvl of 30+.

    Chance to gamble an exceptional item: ( ilvl - qlvl ) * 0,9% + 1%
    Chance to gamble an elite item: ( ilvl - qlvl ) * 0,33% + 1%

    ilvl: random number from charlevel-5 to charlevel+4
    qlvl: base quality level.

    SoJ:

    You can gamble a soj from L35 on (although at minimal chances), as a soj has a qlvl of 39.

    The best chance for gambling a soj is at a level where a charlevel-5 ring could still be a soj, but a charlevel+4 one could not be any ring higher than a soj which would be Ravenfrost and Dwarf Star with a qlvl of 53. That means if you want to gamble for sojs, the best character levels are 44-48.

    If you really want a soj that bad:
    A: Trade for it
    B: Run nightmare andariel over and over, until you find one.

    It is not possible to buy class specific items save for claws.
    It is not possible to buy any item that can be made into a spirit.

    Seralph is incorrect. First, you can't buy paladin shields at all. Second, the chance for an item in the shop to be exceptional/elite depends upon your character level. I don't believe it's possible to get exceptional/elite items until you are much higher than level 19.

    Oops, again I misread a posting, this time regarding the monarch. But as helvete said, you can't buy monarchs anyway :azn:

    Here are the chances for exceptional/elite items when shopping (according to http://members.iinet.net.au/~dcarson/shopcalc.html - click on "How does this work ?"):

    Exceptional upgrade in Nightmare: ((ilvl * 64) + 4000) / 100,000
    Exceptional upgrade in Hell: ((ilvl * 128) + 5000) / 100,000
    Elite upgrade in Hell: ((ilvl * 16) + 1000) / 100,000

    with ilvl = charlevel+5

    You are loved, too!

    lol, I have very few practice in writing English, this means I need to rearrange my phrases several times. Finally it was proper English but the information get messed up. I'm really sorry. thanks to all who found the fault and have correct me.

    Right infos:
    - you can buy white ITEMS till lvl 20, nice if you are looking for certain stuffmods
    - for a spirit you need a 4 sox monarch or paladin shield
    - the chance to gamble a soj between lvl 42 and lvl 51 is one soj out of 61894 rings
    - Paladin shields can't be found in shops.
    - I don't know if it's possible to get a monarch in a shop, but if so, it would be a magic or a rare one
