    I play on Lake Austin, and clicked the luck statue this morning to begin my experiment.

    120 Anatomy
    120 Tactics
    120 Swords
    120 Bushido
    120 Chivalry
    100 Lumberjack
    20 Ninjitsu (30 more on jewels that I would swap out)

    Cast Enemy of One, 4 Mirrors, Divine Fury and spawn Whirlwind once the Dark Guardians popped.

    After I would dispatch them all, I would loot the gold, bones and maps (for turn in points), and repeat this process. I spent one hour there, and got 9 drops, although I took a short break for laundry, I may have been able to pull more drops.

    I used this double axe:

    Total loot estimate: 195k gold, 9k bones, 35k points for turn in from maps, 9 artifacts of doom.

    I will continue this experiment later to see how I do with 0 luck.

    That's what I do too. Weapon is a little different, but similar results. My only beef is I'm not getting anything over lesser artifacts.

    No one else was there. Last time I had company, they were also doing the same, seemed to increase the drop rate.

    They help. The more people the more that spawn. As long as you get damage you get points toward a drop. It doesn't matter if you are the top damager. Just get a wither or a whirlwind off and it works. Bring a crowd.

    Yes, they help. Help to you... and get nothing as a thanks.
    If damage doesn't matter why you use Hit Area, EOO and Slayer?
    The math is easy - when you do more damage other players do less damage. When you remove 50% of DG's life by one hit other people just help you by increasing the spawn and hoping to be able to do some damage from time to time.

    Oh damage matters, but I meant even if you are not the top damager you get points toward doom drops. I was having more success with a necromage than a sampire when the room was packed. But the sampire can survive a hoard of Dark Guardians solo while my caster will get killed.

    After 15 minutes today, with no luck and only one drop, I clicked the luck statue. Back up to 900 luck, I pulled 14 drops in an hour. I only looted the maps for turn in points and skipped the bones and gold, which made for a quicker turn around and thus more drops in an hour.

    I had one hour where I had 20 in one hour. It was amazing. But that is not the norm. I usually walk away with between 10-12.

    About the same as you. I had 740 on that character after hitting the luck statue.
