Luck suits...are they worth it anymore?

    I have a 2k luck suit but when I try to imbue it says that the special materials are too old to survive the imbuing process. I would like to have LRC and other mods and it doesn't seem like I am getting much benefit from the luck suit compared to my characters without luck suits. Before I try to make a new luck suit and waste materials, runics, and POF, is it even worth trying to get luck on items? Am I better off adding something else other than luck?

    Wish they would either scrap the whole system or to institute a more reasonable cap of something like 500, maybe even much lower. I never had any "luck" with luck though.

    No one has any idea if anything actually works with that system. It's assumed that a loot increase occurs but you know what they say about assuming...I've tried the whole luck thing and all I've ever noticed is the same stuff dropping from the higher end creatures. I've not tried the whole high luck low level monster idea though, some say it works others say its just a numbers thing to get a good drop.

    Luck does nothing but work against you with the new loot system.

    If I hunt without any luck, the loot usually is trash, not even a rare peace of something even remote better in most cases.
    If the same char at least clicks the 10th anniversary statue and hunts with the improved luck, the results are better.
    Far from perfect, but better.

    I think this would be a great topic for them to cover in the Ask & Answer segments. As it stands, the effectiveness of luck varies greatly between different experiences and yet, we still have no idea how it actually functions. My question would be whether or not they have any plans to revisit this system...

    I think the effects of luck are totally overcome by the effects of the RNG. We may get a highly effective luck "roll of the dice" that gets absolutely negated by the RNG, and when the RNG finally decides to play nice, our luck has decided its time for a vacation.

    I tend to agree... luck seems to have about the same effect on loot as the fisherman suit has on bait...

    It's a valid question actually. I've been thinking about imbuing a new high level luck set for the new items in the old dungeons (shame etc) for the new item drops. But it seems like it's better to go with lower luck
    and recieve lower intsensity items that have a smaller chance of being cursed etc.. Then can be imbued with less undersireable properties and being clean, so at this point I see no reason to imbue a high level\luck armour set. Hopefully down the road perhaps for em events luck will play a larger roll in acquiring better and usefull items for the players. Till then I'll wait for that time to happen.

    Everyone assumes that the luck on an item is good luck. This is the grand joke. I bet that for any item that has luck, there is a 50% chance the luck is good, and 50% chance that it is bad. What else would explain the great diversity of opinions and experiences people have? The truly lucky person has, by chance, put together a suit containing a majority of good luck over bad.

    If having luck inhibits your characters suit to the point where u farm less because u could use another stat then get rid of it. If i can get 10 kills with 0 luck verses 9 kills with 1000+ luck then your better off having no luck. You wont even notice it in my book. People associate the high number of luck like 3400 with actually meaning something when in fact it is probably a non substantial bump in loot to the naked eye and requires a huge sample size to actually see any difference with luck vs without.

    After all this time, and still we are not certain as to the effect of luck on loot. I think that it is at least time for a Dev or two to weigh in on this... Throw us a bone after all these years of wondering...

    "Luck" was always a ridiculous system that favoured certain classes over others. Tamers always had the easiest time building luck suits, etc. Drops should be based on your RL luck.
