    It's possible to gamble elite anythings as far as I know. RTB will know the odds. (and whether or not I was telling the truth)

    I believe you can. It's just that the odds are really small so that's why most people don't ever see them.

    The only thing(s) I remember about gambling are:

    - no ethereal items unless they are ethereal in nature (so, no eth Frostburns for example)
    - some items cannot be gambled at all I believe because they don't get generated by vendors.

    Of course, RTB or Thrugg will jump in here to correct all of us nOObs.

    I believe it's probably possible to gamble any unique shield (except the class specifics of course) and I say this having recently gambled a Metalgrid, which is if I'm not mistaken as high or higher a level an item than any elite shield, but let's just say you'll be selling a LOT of blue kite shieleds before you get a stormshield. :D

    odds for set when gambling- 1:1000
    odds for uniques- 1:2000

    Someone mentioned the odds 1:10 for the item being elite if your level is high enough, but i don't know if this number is correct, it seems to low compared with my experience.

    Level 84 sorc? Dress her with MF and farm Hell Mephisto. Chance to drop Stromshield is 1:738 with 400MF at P3 settings.

    You see!? RTB to save the day!

    You just have to post his name and the stat gurus come a runnin'! :thumbsup:

    Now, I can't remember how much kite shields are for gambling purposes. Times that by RTB's odds of 1:28818 ... and it's alot of gold i'm sure.

    Better to give the beat down to Meph like Hrus mentioned.
