    None on the act of fishing. But luck does influence the quality and amount of loot a monster drops.

    Just like in Treasure hunting. Luck doesn't affect what is in the chest, but it does affect the loot you get from killing bad guys.


    I don't think there has ever been a statement about whether luck affects "pearl" drops.

    I don't think that is unrealistic. Luck affects "drops". Technically pearls are a drop.

    I know luck affects the frequency I get pet balls while harvesting queens.

    Which is very similar.

    Elves have a better chance at pulling pearls than humans too.

    I am curious, I have never heard that before.
    Do you have a source for this or is it Stratic's rumor?

    It is tied to the Knowledge of Nature racial ability (similar to mining gems and birlliant amber obtained from lumberjacking). The gems, pearls, and amber are considered a special resource. My fisherman has been an elf since Mondain Legacy was released. I receive noticeably more than my friend when fishing for the same duration (we have both been GM way before ML).

    The Mining FAQ has similar information regarding the mining gems.
