    What do YOU gamble for?

    I tend to pick up too much stuff when I MF, so I was wondering what items are best to gamble for in the long run. I never know exactly what to try. Rings and ammys have horrible resale, and I've never gotten anything useful. I'll spring for a diadem or circlet, knowing their chance to have +skills, but even if you get one and the mods aren'y great you only get 35000 gold back. Lately I've been going to two specific uniques, the Pelta Lunata Buckler and a Stormlash... but the odds are horrible for uniques, aren't they like 1 in 100,000?

    Any good buys I'm missing? Talk amongst yourselves...

    I must confess to not being much of a gambler. To me the odds are far worse than actually performing Magic Find runs.

    I do however gamble:

    - Amulets
    - Rings
    - Coronets/Circlets et al

    I recently gambled a pair of gloves with +20% IAS and +2 to amazon bow skills. Nice stuff out there . . . you can find some tasty boots too, for that matter.

    Amulets
    Rings
    Circlets & Coronets
    Gloves (especially heavy gloves type - if I don't get nice mods, I can try a blood craft recipe then)

    I gamble for:

    Circlets/Coronets
    Amulets
    Rings

    Gloves (+skill/IAS, MF/Dual resists)
    Boots (MF/Dual Resists)

    Throwing weapons.

    Belts (Big life and resists)

    Occasionally big weapons. Armors usually just eat up your finances.

    I gamble the following:

    Circlets/coronets: obvious
    Crafting materials: mainly safety/blood since elites are favored for defense(esp safety)
    Weapons: Still waiting for 40% ias and 450%ED. (I had one 40% ias/300%ED though)
    Boots: perfect 30%ias, 25%mf, 40% resist all(excluding poison)

    To finance this basically means I pick up every little pile of gold and sell anything I think is worth over 20K.

    It's 1/2000 not too horrible:)

    I only gamble rings/amulets/circlets, although I have yet to gamle a useful ring. I wouldn't worry too much about resale value, just go for the items that has the biggest chance of being useful.

    I gamble for rings primarily, looking for a good dual leech ring. :D

    When circlets pop up, I buy them too (not coronets though; too expensive IMAO).

    I'm stuffing my bank 'till I hit level 95 with a character, my sorceress is 92 and I don't do exp runs with her, so it'll probably be the javazon or hammerdin I'm making soon.

    Right now I have ~52 millions.

    Coronets can upgrade to Tiaras and Diadems though - and once you have a rare Diadem, you can just reroll it indefinitely in the cube (well, until you have fewer than 6 PSkulls) and hope for the ultimate Diadem mods you seek.

    In any case, my latest gambling fad is Ancient Armor, in the hopes of nabbing a Tyrael's and/or Templar's and/or IKSC. Worst that could happen is that I have a whole load of Milabrega's Robes, I guess :) Horribly expensive though, at about 500k a pop - but it might pay off one day.

    I gamble for rings and amy's, I don't worry about the resale value, I gamble to get rid of funds when I can't hold my money anymore. Since I pick up EVERYTHING (I feel bad S&E w/ a partial pile of bolts out there somewhere) I reach this point often when I'm not dying a lot.
