And in addition, chances for gamble set item now 10%, and 5% for unique item. Formula for gamble exceptional and elite versions of items also changed in better way. Now it is: exceptional chance = (ilvl - excep qlvl) * 1,5% + 1% for Nightmare and exceptional chance = (ilvl - excep qlvl) * 1,0% + 1%; elite chance = (ilvl - elite qlvl) * 0,5% + 1% for Hell.

I have a lvl 53 (Nightmare) Barbarian with lots of good stuff, including two balanced axes that regenerate quantity. If anyone wants copies of everything I own email me at TyrBerBooks@gmail.com and I'll join a game with my shared stash. You can have everything because I'll be using a copy of my save directory. Also I would like someone to do the same for me.
