The Diablo 2 base item level is used in many game calculations, including gambling. A character’s level (clvl) must meet or exceed the base item’s level for that item to display in the gambling window. This relationship is complicated by an element of luck; when the item window is rolled, the clvl is calculated at +4/-5, for every item in the window that time. This makes no difference to high-level characters, but in the low and mid-levels it is a non-trivial issue.
For instance, the Coronet is base level 52, so a character as low as level 48 might see it (+4), while a character as high as 56 might not (-5).
To figure the odds of an item upgrading to Exceptional or Elite, factor in the Clvl again.
To figure out at what Character levels a base item type will be available for Gambling, subtract 4 from the item’s quality level, for having a chance to upgrade to Exceptional subtract 5, and for Elite subtract 7.
Note: Item types that are not listed are not available for Gambling.
The chances for every item quality are:
- Unique: 1/2000 (.05%)
- Set: 2/2000 (.1%)
- Rare: 200/2000 (10%)
- Magical: 1797/2000 (89%)
