Orb of Chance upgrades a normal item to a random rarity. It is primarily applied to particular base item types in the hopes of obtaining a particularly unique item, a process referred to as chancing. However, the resulting item is most commonly a magic item and uncommonly a rare item. Because of this, players should carefully weigh the cost of using up Orbs of Chance to obtain a specific unique against the cost of simply trading for that unique. The chance of creating a unique item is different for every unique and depends on the rarity of that specific unique.
The base item’s item level doesn’t limit the type of unique items that can be obtained, so it is possible to obtain what are otherwise map-only unique items.
In order to get Orb of Chance Odds, I have tested 2 hours in Act 8 and Act 9 to farm normal items and then apply Orb of Chance.
Act: Act 8, Act 9
Orb of Chance Number: 516
Get Magic Items: 436. The magic Orb of Chance odds is 84.4%.

(1) Generally, Orb of Chance upgrades a normal item to a magic item.
(2) You have about 15% probability chancing a rare item.

The base type of Headhunter is Leather Belt. Leather Belt has 7 unique versions: Wurm’s Molt, Headhunter, Immortal Flesh, Umbilicus Immortalis, Cyclopean Coil, Gluttony, and Hyperboreus. There is no item level requirement for Leather Belt.
Headhunter was exclusive to the Nemesis league. In order to chance a Headhunter, you must enter a map with “Nemesis” mods. You can select the Nemesis Map Mod from Zana’s map device.
Since a Headhunter worth at least 100 Exalted Orbs, this is the most profitable ways to use Orbs of Chance.
You can farm Orb of Chance by killing enemies, purchase from Clarissa, do vendor recipes, farm prophecy, or exchange currency items.
The drop level of Orb of Chance 2 and drop rate is 5.508%. Actually, killing monsters is the best way to farm Orb of Chance. This currency can be dropped in any Act and any map. Increasing your farming efficient, killing more monsters, the probability is that you can obtain more currency.
Clarissa lives in The Sarn Encampment in Act 3, whoa sells an Orb of Chance in exchange for one Orb of Fusing. You can buy Orb of Alchemy, Orb of Regret, Orb of Transmutation, and other currency items from Clarissa as well.
Yeena lives in Act 2, who sells an Orb of Scouring in exchange for 4 Orbs of Chance.
This recipe require multiple identified rare items with the same name.
|1× Orb of Chance||2 x Identified rare items with same name|
This recipe require multiple items of the same base item type (e.g. Recurve Bow), one from each rarity specified.
|5× Orb of Chance||normal, magic, rare, unique|
These recipes require a full set of rare items. A full set is capable of filling all item slots in the inventory screen (not including flasks, the alternate weapon set, or a quiver). Specifically, it consists of:
The type of currency produced depends on the item with the lowest item level in the set, and the quantity on whether they are all unidentified and/or 20% quality:
|Result||Item Level of lowest-level item|
|1× Orb of Chance||1 to 59|
|2× Orb of Chance||1 to 59, all unidentified OR all 20% quality|
|3× Orb of Chance||1 to 59, all unidentified AND all 20% quality|
Trash to Treasure is a prophecy.
Objective: Use an Orb of Chance on any normal item.

This prophecy guarantees a unique item. However, the price of Trash to Treasure is very expensive, which worth at least 30 Exalted Orbs.
Farming thousands of Orbs of Chance need lots of time. Purchase 2,000 Orbs of Chance for $2.2 additional 3% discount with coupon “AOE”.
These unique items have high values and are worth to try: “ Headhunter, Leather Belt”, “ Zerphi’s Heart, Paua Amulet”, “ The Pandemonius, Jade Amulet”, “ Atziri’s Reflection, Golden Buckler”, “ Farrul’s Fur, Triumphant Lamellar”, “ The Eternity Shroud, Blood Raiment”, “ Kaom’s Heart, Glorious Plate”, “ The Perandus Manor, Chateau Map”, “ Unnatural Instinct, Viridian Jewel”, “ The Green Nightmare, Viridian Jewel”, “ The Green Dream, Viridian Jewel”, “ Emperor’s Wit, Cobalt Jewel”, “ Inspired Learning, Crimson Jewel”, “ Soul Ripper, Quartz Flask”, “ Bottled Faith, Sulphur Flask”, etc.

An item filter can highlight base items as they drop for use with an Orb of Chance.
Care should be taken to use an item with high enough item level to get a desired number of sockets or other effects based on item level such as a Vaal Orb corruption.
Notably, unique items specific to past temporary leagues, such as Headhunter or Voll’s Devotion, can be obtained with an Orb of Chance only while standing in a map to which the appropriate league’s mod has been added with the Map Device. Depending on the item, this can be one of the most profitable ways to use Orbs of Chance since they can be used to obtain items that are nearly unobtainable otherwise.
In races or at low levels, players may also find using Orbs of Chance on good base item types useful for quickly crafting potentially usable magic or rare item.
One can sell 4 Orbs of Chance to Yeena in exchange for an Orb of Scouring. Orbs of Chance can also be sold to vendors in exchange for magic amulets.
