    Do treasure hunters need luck? Actually a better question is does luck affect the loot generated in the chest? I know it affects the loot on the guardians (but that's not necessarily what I'm after).

    No I don't think so. I'm waiting for the new loot system to be rolled out to treasure chests as this is what they need. 99% of the loot from the chests at the moment is junk.

    Yah, i'm getting ready, I have a houseful of maps and I am training up a pure bard treasure hunter. I am also getting ready to build a suit for her and am just thinking about the mods I'll need. Not having to worry about putting luck on each piece will let me make the suit more complimentary to the skills and stats. Thx for the reply.

    I run a tamer treasure hunter who use to be able to solo lvl 6 maps.....for those I run a 100 ltc 70 suit with 45 dci ....that will normally keep me alive while my pets rips them up.

    Starting to make a luck suit for this character as well. It will be for when I stone off cart and lp and put on peace and music.... Then she can just farm spawn for resources. A lot has changed since I left but assuming treasure hunting hasn't....luck helps with guardian loot only, not with chest loot

    My THunter was a bard thunter, now running a Disco/Myst/THunter. I switched cause I was having problems when I ended up with just a single baddie left and really had no way to kill it. Now I can throw up a RC, disco the baddie, and watch it die. Works just finnnnnne.
