If you have ever played the original Diablo II at some point, it’s very likely you have done some Gambling to obtain items. While getting unique items is extremely difficult, gambling is still worthwhile due to a variety of reasons, even more so in Diablo II Resurrected thanks to some very welcome tweaks.
Here’s everything you need to know about gambling in Diablo II Resurrected.
Diablo II Resurrected Gambling Explained
Gambling is a unique form of shopping in Diablo II Resurrected where you buy what seems to be a normal item and have the chance of it being magical, rare, or unique.
To start gambling, you need to speak with specific vendors – Gheed in Act I, Elzix in Act II, Alkor in Act III, Jamella in Act IV, Nihlathak or Anya in Act V. Once you pick the Gambling option, you will be able to check out the vendor’s inventory and purchase different items. If you cannot find the item you are looking for, you can use the Refresh function and change the items available for sale on the fly. Not all items are available via Gambling at all times, as some are unlocked depending on your character’s current level.
The cost of gambling also depends on your character’s level, but you can lower the cost with the Gheed’s Fortune Charm and the Edge Bow, a Rune Word that decreases all vendor’s prices by up to 15%.
The actual quality of the items purchased via Gambling depends entirely on luck. You have an 89% chance of getting a Magical item, 10% of getting a Rare item, a 0,10% of getting a Set item, and a 0,05% chance of getting a Unique item. As such, most of the items you get via Gambling will be Magical. There’s still a small chance they will be normal quality, so make sure to have enough gold with you before you start gambling, as there is some risk involved.
