    Hey Guys,

    I've read as much as I could find on building a sampire luck suit, and wanted some advice / opinions on if it is worth it or not to build a fighting sampire luck suit (as opposed to just a swap-to-for-last-hit suit) and possibly how to go about it.

    I'd prefer to fight bosses (Navery, Medusa, the easy soloable ones for sampires) so I'd prefer if the suit were capable as well.

    Anything you guys can add / help with is appreciated it.

    Booglerz

    I regret making a Luck suit as I have yet to see a noticeable difference in loot.

    I get better loot with just 140 luck vs 2200

    Ya and from initial looks, its really hard to fit luck into a decent samp suit anyways (would have to miss out on something, hci, mi, si, or lmc etc) which seems bad vs anything that is hard to fight anyways... If someone has a nice suit they've made I'd love to look at it for inspiration, but I think I might stray away from a luck suit on a samp atm. Thanks for the help.

    I made this luck suit in the picture below. After using it many times I would agree with Lord GOD. Its just not worth it.

    I also agree. Hitting statue and conjurer's seems to work out just fine. If you are farming in Fel with perfection it's plenty of luck already.

    It really depends on what you are killing and what you are looking to get. Someone posted parts about it before, but luck provides a boost to the point pool when you are getting items. It is possible to have too much luck and turning good items into bad ones- because it will add negatives (cursed / weight / ancient) to the item. But, the Devs haven't posted the formula that I am aware it.

    So, in other words, there are times when 900 luck is better than 2000 luck. Which I am against UNLESS you are going to let people know so they can modify their suits and such.

    I only think luck is worth it for the highest end bosses to increase you chance of Legendary artifacts in Fel. Unfortunately, most of these bosses are suited too other char types than a melee warrior. I am with the crew and recommend not going to the max with luck on your suit. You will do so at the detriment to other mods which are far more useful to your sampire.

    Luck is handy if you are hunting for Legendary artifacts. For big bosses it's better to swap suit.
    For small monsters don't try to maximize luck, keep balance. I'd say that 2000 luck is as good as 2200 luck... at least you hardly notice the difference. I prefer 4hci+130 luck pieces to 150 luck pieces. You can craft pretty strong suit with 1500-2000 luck.
