    With my tamer, in solen hive, i've killed about 40 queens. And only 1 crystal ball found. 1404 luck and a cu to kill the solen queens.
    Then i've tryed with my mage, with only 850 kuck. 20/25 queens killed and 6 crystal balls.
    Is this a bug? Luck doesn't work killing monster with pets?

    You link it to a pet, and it will summon the pet from the stables (or wherever it may be) to your location.

    RNG= what seadog said. RNG means that your loot drop is totally random.

    What I mean by them being screwed is that the loot is usually garbage. I have a luck suit well over 1400 and can hunt for hours without getting but a few items worth keeping.

    I don't expect to get high end items every time I kill a high end monster, but it would be nice if the dev's bumped it up just a teeny bit.

    The higher your luck the more items you get, but it seems that it's just more stuff to throw away.

    Thanks, now i've understood. But if it is so, luck is not so important, for now, isn't it?
    It needs a fix?

    Actually, the higher your luck, the better the item intensities are..

    I put together an 1880 luck suit & tried killing the sphinx for a 1/2 hour. I "thought" I was seeing more properties then usual on items but the intensities ranged from 1% to 5%. So I put some decent armor back on...

    Luck affect loot in two ways : probability of a well-filled loot bag, and number/intensity of item properties.
    I assume that getting a crystal ball of pet summoning is not affected by Luck.

    Actually, the higher your luck, you are supposed to get higher intensities as well as more properties on the items, to the max of 5.

    Luck doesn't affect the drop rate.

    It only affects the intensity of the properties on weapons and armor in the drop.

    aye, luck will make a difference by shifting the probability upward that an item has more intensity or more properties than is usual. Its not a guarantee for each item, but rather give an increased chance at buffed loot. If you want to see it in action, try killing rune beetles for 45min with and without a luck suit. They have a nice enough loot loot table that you should see the difference. Since # and intensity of properties don't apply to a pet ball, I'd be surprised if luck increased drop rate.

    OTOH, i thought luck did improve the drop rate on things like antivirtue items...

    The Dev's have posted about luck several times both in the forums and in the FOF. There is a formula that determines if you get a bump in the treasure tables. If you are consistantly getting the bump the pet summoning ball might have a lower percentage chance of being recieved in that table. I also noticed that I didnt get very many summoning balls with my tamer with his luck suit but I came back another time without my luck suit and got two in the same quest run.
