    I was reading a thread in Uhall about the new loot system. The topic was how much Luck would help loot property levels, and it seems to be a lot.

    One point made was Felucca gets a +1000 luck bonus. Do we just have that 'always on' or does Siege not get any bonus? This could possibly make a big difference in what kind of loot we can pull vs production servers.

    But would that difference matter?

    But yeah, I´m not gonna decline a free 1000 luck bonus.

    We don't have double resources, so I highly doubt we'll have 1000 felucca luck either.

    I feel we should have both double resources and 1000 luck bonus.

    I did quite a few spawning dungeon chests, and we didn't get any 1000 luck boost that I could see. Very disappointing.

    I think most everything is still decidedly worse than revamped dungeon loot, which makes the whole thing sort of pointless. :/

    I believe the point of the new loot system was to finally upgrade the worthless junk on most monsters, and replace it with items that were much more useful - as either armor or melted to ingredients. From what I hear from a couple of friends (one is a treasure hunter, btw), they're quite happy with the changes... As am I. It was never my impression that an Ogre would be dropping uber stuff, just better stuff - and I think they accomplished that...

    Well what I was referring to was things like ancient wyrms. I still got as good or better loot off of the lizard men in wrong, which are drastically weaker.

    I mostly get lesser and minor magic stuff of the overland's spawn. I can be lucky to get a greater or mayor magic item from the more powerful mobs. If I want to be able to unraw a few relic for an hours hunting, I need around 1000 luck.
    Noone will hunt the overland to get this stuff, not even a newbie, I'm very disappointed as I had looked forward to see life in the forest, at the desert, at the swamp and at GY's

    Well I mean they can't very well have artifacts dropping off of every other orc. I did get one off an ettin though, so there's that.

    For fun I went and did 3 runs hunting some higher end over land mob with zero luck. Drops were ok, nothing that I kept, but got 3 relic frags out of it all.

    Then I put 90 luck on my armor and got the statue bonus (1450 luck total) and did 2 runs with same mob. Not only did the quantity of items increase, but the quality did as well. 7 relic frags plus I kept 2 max intensity items.

    Obviously this is only a small test, but pleased enough with the results. The 50 stone items are annoying and usually get left, otherwise I'd have to bank every other kill.
