    I can't find any real information(since the crash)

    luck and heartwood quests:

    I am fairly sure no luck for getting runics
    but what about the random magic items would luck bump the loot?

    In theory Luck helps with the properties of a looted item in these ways:
    - Intensity
    - Amount of
    - Relevance between

    I am not sure it helps with the amount of items spawning, their type or whatnot. I say "In theory" because there are people disputing this, or arguing for instance that lower luck than X number spawns better items, and so on.

    I hope I understood the question.. If not just nevermind!

    I was asking about the heartwood quest items you get in the colored backpacks.

    random items such as elven weapons armor and jewels.

    It has been stated that luck factors in loot generated by mobs when they're killed and that luck has no effect on treasure/locked chests that are spawned. I don't know for sure how the bag/satchel/boxes loot is generated.

    If I had to guess I'd say that loot is generated upon a 'kill shot'. Treasure/locked chests & bag/satchel/boxes have no 'kill shot's thus are not effected by loot.

    No...the only time luck has any effect is on actually loot off of a corpse.

    This is yet another example of a very tiny fix that would do so much for the T-hunter.
