I play pvp thief, but am not above stealing from convenient monster if near and no players. I have changed character to be more effective in spawns- became elf for nightsight, tracking difficulty, rasied stealth to 120. Now, special items from monsters are more frequent. This raises query: since luck seems to play no part in special item stealing, does elf abilities? The elf racial ability to "find" more rare items when mining and woodcutting- does it apply somehow to "finding" more rare items on monsters, in this application? I have stolen more special items as elf than as human. This may be luck, and not coding. But the difference of one mornings activities asks me question. Does anyone know? Thank you.
