If i may ask, since i have never gambled yet once while i started multiplayer, what r the best items to gamble on that might have a chance to be worth something?Necrolestes said:You have to GAMBLE at least once in the game. The odds are against you, admittedly, and the price to buy increases with your level (the price to sell remains dependent on which act you're in while on normal difficulty-5000 max in I, 10000 max in II, 15000 max in III, 20000 max in IV, and if you have the expansion pack, 25000 in V; once you reach Nightmare difficulty, every act has a max sell price of 30000 and once you reach Hell, that max sell price increases to 35000). MF has NO effect on what you can get; only your current level dictates how nice or how crummy the item you gamble for will be (I've wasted 50000 on a +1 to light ring and 50000 on a Dwarf Star unique ring; you never know what you will get).
ok thx for the tip, i need to lvl my chars more as i have about 3 chars in the lvl 70+ range so i still have a while to go to try to gamble for the +2 mod's circlets.djIgneo said:circlets and amulets primarily. rings could be good
you'll be looking for +2 skills on the circlets and amulets along with other good mods, such as resist all and faster cast rate
don't forget you have to be high clvl (at least 87) to get the +2 mod.

If you are going to do that you might as well do Pindle runs in NM. Much faster and lots of good uniques drop. Anyway forget about the MeteorOrb sorc. They are crap in Hell almost everywhere unless you have the premium stuff to start with which you dont. Make yourself a hammerdin. At level 78 I can kill Mephisto with ease. I have picked up loads of great stuff. Occulus, Wizardspikes (2), Shakos (2), Guardian Angel, Blade of Ali Baba, Heaps of set pieces, a few ravenfrosts, some very great def armor (a 991 def 3 socket one and a 1250 corpsemourn), sh!tloads of nagel rings and the list goes on. Done this in the first week. Just started running the pit as Mephisto cant drop some items I am missing for complete sets (got 5 of the IK set and 3 of aldurs from Mephy) but the Pit can drop them. Had nothing decent drop there yet but the experience is good and I jumped to lvl 80 quickly. Set up at 250 mf with a p topaz socketed shako (74 mf), tancreds amulet and boots (they are crappy items alone but with 2 items the amulet becomes 78 mf), a 3 p diamond socketed shield with about 160 def on it (yet to find a decent shield), a 800 def guardian angel templar coat (socketed with a p topaz for 24 mf) that has 15% to max resist on everything, chanceguards with 38mf, nagel ring and ravenfrost that boost my mf to 250, a string of ears and a wizardspike (socketed but need to find ist to put in it to boost to 280mf). Every one of these items I picked up within my first 3 days mf running Mephisto. Its not the greatest build out but very effective on MF runs, with 90 resist all in hell, 20% red damage, 5000 def (with holy shield active), 4,000 hammer damage (weak but sacrificed skill amulets/gloves/boots for MF) and 250mf. Get yourself to around lvl 80 on a hammerdin and start doing Mephy runs. Way I do it is I sprint down with vigor and kill Mephisto, not worrying about anything else. Can kill him 25-30 times an hour. One solid session (4-5 hours) of doing this and you could kill him 100 times and in 100 drops you will be very unlucky not to get some good tradible items. Try to trade for some reasonable armor and a wizardspike (75% res all). With a wizardspike, 70% resist all shield and the 30% resist all you get from 3 anya quests you will have your resistances at 75% and plenty of slots (armor, helm, 2 x rings, amulet, gloves, boots, belt) to load up with mf items.

Then take the pgems and start trading for the common but useful uniques. Make your first character a meteorb sorc and do normal meph, nm andy and nm meph. Pretty soon you will accumulate lots of low to mid end stuff for trade. Thats when you start to get rich.
I must comment on this. As a player who always play untwinked, gambling is much more important to me, and almost a necessity for me to get enough good gear to make progress in the game (I play HC only).Oddity said:Gambling really is for when you already have good gear, and you want a damn good circlet/ammy, or just stuff to sell imo.
