Chatting in game and I thought of a potential additional gold sink and something to do with the loads of super common affix shards we are accumulating.
What if we had another gamble-master. One who would let you give him 1-2 (or 3 or 4, whatever balances it) of your Common affixes w/ some gold and that guaranteed a drop from a higher rarity pool of shards?
Common to Uncommon
Uncommon to Rare
Rare to Super Rare
This could be based on the % drop rate and would increases in cost as you moved up rarity levels.
Obviously the idea needs fine tuning, but I think it would be a “fun” idea that could make the common affix shards useful, especially long term.
