    Everytime I come round to almost thinking you're ok, you post crap like this.

    Why post in here? If you don't care about luck suits, stay out. Simple.

    I'm at 1703 without the statue and 2453 with - and I do have the 100% LRC. I'm still working on it though!

    Sadly, I rarely use it because of the loss of Resists, SDI, MR, etc.

    Mine, and i'll have to double check later, was somewhere around 2400 with statue, 100% lrc, mage weapon for defense, 4/6 casting, like 7 MR, 0 sdi =/, 35ish LMC and 60+/70s in all resists. That mempo really helped alot when it came to resists.

    Could you list what you are wearing please? I am having a hard time getting to 100%LRC - and my tamer is still running around with a reagent bag. Yes I know, so last year...

    Dunno why people think 100% LRC is sooooo important on a luck suit. If you're wearing a luck suit, chances are you're farming with a pet of some sort.

    Unless you plan on staying somewhere for hours on end, you should be able to carry enough regs/bandages to stay for quite sometime, while maintaining enough luck (that doesn't really work as intended yet) and still have enough resist on your suit to stay alive.

    It's so much easier to carry regs then to fit LRC/Luck into a suit. If you're doing a Peerless (one time run/rinse/repeat) you should have enough regs to last the fight.
     
  12. Luck may be broken, as the Devs have stated, but my own experience in farming with/without my luck suit shows that I do get better loot on average with my luck suit then without.

    Honestly, I'd rather have only 500 luck and a suit where I won't die after 2 hits.

    My suit is 1766 without statue.

    112% lrc and fully medable.

    7 mr, 22 lmc, +16 mana, +5 hp.

    2/6 casting and the 30 dci from aof and shield.

    All resists 40-57. I have a couple pcs i swap in with same luck and great resists that i use when the mr/lmc is not crucial.

    The legs are the sickest piece:
    140 luck
    19 lrc,2 mr,7 lmc,8 mana.

    Oh thanks!

    Now I see, you are spreading those LRC on 4 pieces - including the cap. I use the Jester Hat still because of the resists. Since the RNG hates me, getting high luck and LRC on the same piece is difficult. Not even starting to mention resists...

    i didnt realise we where gonna get right indepth with the suits, my bad.

    i run this on my legendary tamer, so i dont require any buffs from the ring and watch for skills and such, or talisman.

    so i can pour all the suit into luck and attributes.

    so this is what i get.
    mid 50's for all resists.
    2/6 casting
    DCI 30
    reflect 20 (its on the suit, i didnt want it)
    MR 5
    HR 4
    LMC 15
    LRC 96

    for being one point off max luck im not gonna complain.

    and that said, its not truelly 1 point off max luck, there are some event items from old EM events that can get you higher.
    there is a set of boots that have luck and there is a sash that has luck as well. but barring getting ahold of those, the normal persons suit.

    and for anyone who thinks luck is broke, id compare my loot to yours any day of the week. luck may not work fully as planned but it for sure gives you better overall items then without it.
    and it also increases the loot drop of toko and doom artys, or at least it does for me and everyone i have talked and hunted with.

    I have 69 Luck. It doesn't matter how many pieces I have, it always ends up at 69. So say we all!!! And yes, I just wanted to say '69'.

    Congratulations to those who are pushing the Luck boundaries, I salute you. :thumbsup:

    Thanks, learning something new everyday...


    Tested with alot of my Alliance members... I agree with you with one exception. We have an archer killing runebeetles that completely destroys this argument... He gets more artys than anyone else... with no luck (except the erratic amount he gets from honoring)...

    Still I will go with luck... and we're tied... 1784.
    (I'm missing 1 point on my gloves, posting picture when I get home)
    What is the max luck from using a luck statue that you can get?
    (account is 12 years old, next September...)

    Full LRC isn't that difficult actually. Considering that the AoF gives 200 luck and 40 LRC...

    Minus 2 jewel slots (for the set), head (gypsy headdress, fisherman glasses), gorget (mempo), that leaves sleeves, gloves, leggings still open for runics. 20 LRC a piece will get you to 100 lrc. Just aim for ones with luck that's made with spined leather, and you have a pretty decent luck suit.

    Here's my max luck suit (though I use my LRC/resists suit for hunting, leftover runics from making a suit for my warrior):

    or only need roughly 17 17 and 16 if you got a sash o.0

    Was not aware there was a max...And do you mean This September as in September 09 or do you mean next September 2010? But Currently I would assume 12 years is the max (considering it is impossible to be higher than that)

    1784 without statue (missing a point from the arms, darn it)

    2334 with statue (my acct is not as old as Poos I guess)

    [​IMG]


    We're both missing 21 points on our suit tho. It is possible to make a luckblade or adventurers machete with 160 luck. Using a vesper replica shield (80 luck), that would add 20 points over Jaana's Staff. This would bring max luck, without statue, to 1805.

    Ive burned several hundred white pearls...turns out its pretty hard to make a 160 luckblade :p (not to mention one with SC on it so its actually functional for a caster)

    You made me spill my coffee. Funny guy you are.

    Yeah, cause "aiming" for something will make that RNG like me, sure:p

    My suit is:

    Jester Hat of Chuckles
    Leurocian`s Mempo
    AoF
    Etoile Bleue Set
    Robe of the Equinox
    Swords of Prosperity (tried with Janna`s but fizzled too much in tight situations. Oooof)
    Leather sleeves, gloves and leggings.

    Total luck is 1758
    Resists: 58/42/54/65/48

    MI 7
    MR 3
    HPR 2
    DCI 15
    FCR 6/FC4
    LRC .....48.....

    The thing about LRC is of course the dying thing. And what does that rude monster pillage from your corpse? Yes, that is right - the reagent bag. It would be nice to not have to worry about that. I carry around with me a pair of arcane boots for those occasions. It works, but it is a plan B. I have given up a few luckpoints along the way to get more resists, and are generally quite happy with the suit as it is now.

    Burn copper hammers @ 10k per and you'll get 140luck w/ LRC platemail pieces in no time. W/ BOS back in action no reason someone can't burn a few a day until they finish.

    Haha, my bad, aiming is definitely the wrong word to use, should have said "look out for". What I was trying to say was the 20 LRC ones with a bit of luck have higher priority than those with 140 luck, but less than 20 LRC.

    I haven't used/insured the mempo yet :p

    Haven't switched out my suit coz I need the LRC in my gorget. The non-artie pieces are mainly factory rejects from making a suit for my warrior (my warrior doesn't need the LRC), plus monster loot (I also keep any 18+ lrc magic armour that I loot, 20 lrc items goes into their own special container).

    Why I said AoF makes it easier is because the 40% lrc from AoF is equivalent to 2 items with 20 LRC. Meaning instead of needing 5 pieces of runic/looted 20 LRC armour, you need only 3 pieces. And coincidentally, we have exactly 3 armour slots that does not have arties that gives more than 140 luck. Sleeves, gloves and leggings.
     
  34. worked on mine for a wile...still looking for the last few 140 luck parts. gloves arms legs all at 125-138 so far with lrc.....total suit...

    1765luck
    100lrc medable
    5mr
    20-30lmc
    50-70s on resists
    2/6 casting.

    I'll have to update more next time I'm in game that's just off top of my head since it's my main char =].

    Use the Royal Survival Knife [replica] for 140 + the Vesper Order shield for 80. The knife is Spell Channeling so it doesnt effect casting, and you get more luck than holding the Swords of prosperity and dont have to worry about the -20 mage wep of the Janna's staff....

    I am, as you can see below, 2230 with statue, 100%lrc, 2/6 casting, MR6, lmc 30, and thanks to the new mempo, even have decent resists......

    just my 2gp....

    1763 Luck, 2363 with the sculpture bonus.

    [​IMG]

    The suit needs a new dye job. If I could somehow get that paragon gold on an obi I'd go that way. I like it how it is for the moment as it goes well with my ki-rin or dragon & it's a nice contrast to most other pets. All legendary skills so I don't need jewels, although a little more magery would be nice.

    Kinda OT but I always lol when I see people block off the name of their characters. How come folks do that? Is it some sorta top secret character you don't want anyone to know is you so you can grief people but pretend to be innocent on the forums?

    Yes :D Shhh! Or seek revenge for things we say here!

    But mostly it's for security reasons. As a rule of thumb, I avoid posting info that lets tech savvy people find my UO email account via a combination of searches. eg UO Char search, then guild, then guild page, then homepage. Or even from a simple moniker that's pretty unique.

    We have a small guild [FEZ] on Oceania that roleplays based on the novel "Journey to the West". We're all Aussies so we were introduced to the stories via the old TV series that screened here, Monkey, or Monkey Magic as it's called in the UK and on the web.
