    help on ist runes and gambling

    hi guys, i have a 75 lvl blizzard sorc that i want to use for mfing. i was considering trying to get 2 ist runes to put in a mosers blessed circle i have, reason being it has decent defense, pretty good blocking, some built in resists, and then would have the magic find with the ists in there. problem is tho im not powerful enough to mf in hell really, so i dont think i could get ahold of anything that i could trade for an ist. so maybe i shouldnt even bother asking hehe.

    also, would u guys recommend wealth armor or a tals armor with a perf topaz? just wondering which would be better overall; also what are tals armors going for these days?

    my last question is on gambling. what level should i wait to be when i gamble, and does it matter what act in hell i gamble in? also does mf gear affect gambling?

    thanks for all the help.

    Doesn't really belong to trade values forum, I'll move this to general strategy.

    I'll take this one: where you gamble doesn't matter at all. Not which act, nor which difficulty level. The only thing that matters is your character level.

    What character level should you be to gamble? As high as possible. It only gets better as you go up. If there was one particular special item you were after, I could tell you what level you needed to be to have a chance of getting it.

    cool!

    well i already realize my chances of getting a good elite unique or elite set item is slim to none, cuz first id have to roll a unique or set, PLUS an elite which is rough. right now, im level 76. im thinking about just saying screw it and going nuts, but i wanna make sure im gambling for types of items that i can get uniques for. i was just basically wanting to get some good elite items. nothing TOO specific, although a vamp gaze or war travellers would be nice ;)

    I will try to answer yor question best I could. As far as putting an IST in your mosers I wouldn't do it. Not worth the extra MF, if that was the case then just get the runeword Rhyme, MF,Res, Mana. Great shield. But if you do in fact want to keep Mosers I suggest either putting Eld runes ( increase chance of blocking ) if you are a blocking sorc or decide to do that or Perfect Diamonds. The extra resistance from that will really free up some of your other items for different options and potentially more MF.

    Wealth vs Tals Armor- It all depends if you have the funds to get Tals Armor, it is a great armor with many greta stats and the full Tals Bonus is also something to look forward too. But for a cheap low level MF armor Wealth cannot be beat.

    As far as gambling it looks like the other guys here took care of that. Hope that helps and Good Luck.
