Very well possible. The best level would be as low as possible (still seeing circlets in the gamble screen), as any circlet can have those stats.

Ah but to get two sockets a circlet must be at least ilvl 26 AFAIK. Meaning you'd need to be clvl30 to gaurantee every circlet gambled could have two sockets.

The of course you're chances of getting a level 18 circlet plummet though you could get some nice 29/30 ones.

If I want lvl18 ones I'd drop the 2 socs requirement.

No way. Mechanic's is only alvl 10, and all circlets are at least alvl 27 (qlvl 24 + magiclvl 3) so definately possible.

That means, gamble with a L1-22 character to avoid having an alvl beyond the minimum of 27.

That would be 1-20, krischan, to completely avoid circlets with alvl of 28+

I don't remember when circlets start showing in the gamble screen, though, so I'm not sure it would be possible to gamble circlets with a lvl 20 char.

You are right, I didn't consider the magic level properly.

Even those socket prefixes are bound by the maximum determined by Ilvl. Circlets don't get 2 sockets until Ilvl 26, as noted above.

Hmm, that also means you have to use a L38+ character when rerolling diadems with the pskulls recipe repeatedly or to level up to L22 before imbuing them :scratch:

Re: Whats the best level....

Ive been gambling with a level 21 character....so far just got magics with crap mods.

So I should forget the 2 socket idea then, ill just larzuk it if I get one with good mods then.

Thanks for the info guys.

Re: Whats the best level....

The number of sockets from Larzuk is subject to the item's ilvl in the same fashion (i.e. no more than 1 socket on a magical circlet with an ilvl of 25 or less as well) and rares will get just one socket anyway.

It's when ilvl = qlvl, isn't it? so clvl 20 would be the first they could be gambled.

I mean just larzuk it to get a socket, rather than hold out for it being socketed when I gamble it :D

Yes. For circlets, diadems etc. (as well as for anything with a magic level of >0, like orbs, wands and perhaps scepters, I'm not sure - there's probably a list somewhere, or have a look at the MPQs :wink3:), alvl=max(ilvl,base_qlvl)+magic_level, capped at 99.

For other items it's a bit more complicated, the procedure has been posted a few dozens of times in this forum :tongue:

Re: Whats the best level....

Just FYI darknessproz, I was refreshing the gamble screen for 15 minutes last night until the first circ came up, and then I clicked off it by accident because I had got into a rythym of doing it.

Re: Whats the best level....

so finding circlets on the gamble screen takes a long time? if so which npc to do it the best? and does difficulty affect the chances for the circlets to appear?

Re: Whats the best level....

Gambling is the same for any vendor regardless of difficulty and act.

The most circlets would be seen at lvl 29, since that ensures a minimum ilvl of 24, which is the qlvl of circlets.
