    I read through this page and I find this information absolutely worthless, because there is no definition of what actually bumping/raising the loot level means...

    What exactly is a loot level?
    How much difference is there between i.e loot level x and loot level x+1?

    So it's pretty pointless to know, that 1226.9 luck has a chance of raising the loot level by 52%, if noone can explain me, what this higher loot level exactly does (except that I have a higher chance of getting better loot, which is quite obvious. But since we're using here rather exact number, explaing the term "luck level" might be a good idea as well).

    I'm sorry. I only updated the page with the newer information from the publish. The figures in the tables are much older information, I'm not sure what the source was.

    I don't read it as luck will increase the loot by 52%. I read it that the percentage chance that loot will be bumped is 52%.

    Lol, I was just getting ready to post a thank you for the luck charts, since I'm getting ready to redo some armor. If 1143 luck gives me a 50 percent chance of monsters dropping better loot, that's a good enough number for me to aim at.

    no one really knows. closest thing i can say is at higher property levels there is a greater chance for a negative. so before the pub you would get the lower stuff bumped up a level, but also the higher stuff bumped up to a negative. after the pub since the only negative really not useable is cursed, this is not as much of an issue.

    UO guide has a little more in depth information if your interested in the math of modern luck in UO.

    There is typo:
    Chance of loot value bump = luck^(1/1/8)

    Thanks! Actually this page describes it very well, what "bumping" means.

    The Publish mentioned art work. Is there any specifics on this?
