    Pretty please?
    As some of you are aware, my head doesn't like math, and this darn page is full of it:

    http://uo.stratics.com/content/basics/luck.shtml

    I need to know, is it still accurate? And if it isn't, what needs changing, where?

    Will anyone help please?

    I *think* I know how it is supposed to work... exactly how it really works (or if it even does) is open to debate. I'll take a look at it today and see if it seems correct.

    Other volunteers are more than welcome so that maybe we can get a definite answer.

    We need one of the Devs to look at the code and see how it works, if it is working, and that it is applied to all expansions. Also might as well look and see if perfection luck works as well.



    uoguides.com has some info, but they admit they are not sure on it as well.


    PS If any Dev is looking at this please fix the Vorpal Blades. They have never worked as advertised. Thought I would ask again this year. So far it has been 3 years.

    The math, as far as my research shows, is accurate.

    No time to show sources right now... uoguide and fives on fridays were among them.

    Might be nice to show suit pieces with luck attached, much like the HCI/DCI pages.

    I would sleep better if a dev would look at the code, test it, see if it is working and break it down for us. That way we know for sure it works on all aspects of the game.

    Luck works. There is a question, because of something Draconi posted just before he left about how the effects of luck are implemented.

    For me, one of my questions reguarding luck is if the perfection bonus stacks. I seem to remember a Five on Friday or something where it was stated that the perfection bonus doesn't stack. But, if you read the bushido skill on the UO website, the way it is worded, it does stack.

    Which is quite important, in terms of this conversation, because in terms of ~max luck, you go from 82% to 97% chance of bumpage.

    Just with the statue (~800), Perfection and starting out at like 800 luck, that puts you are 2600 luck which would be ~78% chance of bumpage.
