    Where do you gamble?

    I remember a thread like this awhile back, but could not find it under the search function. People have been talking about gambling a lot these days, so I was wondering if there was one place better to gamble than the next.

    So, where to do you gamble, what type of items do you gamble and what level do you generally start?

    I have no idea if I'm doing gambling the rite way, I've never been interested enough to look up a guide. Whenever my sorcs or hammerdin get over 2M, I head to the nearest gamblor, usually Anya, and get rings, ammys, and circlets.

    Gotten some nice rings, including one stupidly godly one I wouldn'r even be able to begin to price, but the ammys and circlets hate me.

    Isn't it that you can gamble anywhere and it will still be the same? I always gamble at Gheed before a duel game.

    I gamble at Anya since I can enter the portal and reset her regular inventory (not the gamble one) whenever I get bored of gambling.

    I don't gamble as much as I shop vendors, but I usually use Anya, since she's in a5, and I mostly do eldritch/shenk/nihlathak when I pvm.

    Coronets mostly, sometimes ammys.

    I do rings, ammys, and circlets/coronets. I almost always use Anya, and so far I have gotten Tal's Ammy and a few good FCR + strength + resists rings.

    At a casino...

    Usually wherever the closest guy is, most of the time it's Gheed. But I swear that guy has the worst crap. Rings, Ammys and circlets n stuff.

    Except for Nihlathak and Anya. I have the feeling they don't like each other very much, especially after that Prison of Ice fiasco.

    Actually some of us went on an adventure and stole their stash of worthless rings.
    Remember Evrae?

    HOW ABOUT STAYING ON TOPIC PEOPLE?

    Just Kidding, I enjoy the mindless fun as much as (or even more so...) the actual game discussions :smiley: .

    I'm gambling in nightmare act 3 because that's where my GF barb gathers his gold :tongue:

    It doesn't matter where you gamble, but which level you are. Which level is the best depends on what you want to gamble for. I gamble for amulets and circlets. At lower levels (below L90 or so), better gamble for rings because the interesting affixes can also occur at lower levels.

    Some people also gamble for belts, boots and gloves, but IMO it's not worth it because you find enough of them among monster drops. However, amulets need to be ilvl90+ to have a chance to be good (which means they need the +2 to skills affix) and no monster can drop them, except for Nihlathak, Diablo and Baal.

    I gambled at all merchants in all the towns, and they almost gave me the very same rings/ammy. And i don't say this jewelery was godly

    I gamble at Anya with an old left over level 98 zon from 1.09. NL of course.

    I did get a MedalGrid (or what ever it is) last ladder with a lvl 89 Sorc. I like to gamble amulets as that seems to be the best use of my gold. I use a Gheeds and an Edge bow to make my game gold go further. Good luck.
