    Hi there,

    I hadn't used my t-hunter for a while so I decided I was going to have a little try of him last night....

    Then I realised he only had 98 mining still! I wanted the full bonus without having to use gloves so I went mining... after around an hour and a half I was GM mining! It was getting late so I decided I would have a look at his gear.

    I read somewhere a while ago that luck has an impact on how good the loot in the chest is?? is this correct??

    I hope it is as I decided to have a blast with reforging and I have put a suit together for him.

    I have managed all 70's with 100% LRC as well as 30% LMC (40 with void totem) and a rather impressive 2700 luck with my 10th year statue thingy....

    I am going to pop a few maps tonight as I really need imbue ingreds so I thought I will loot the gold/marties and ingreds and then once I have "worked" all the guardians out of the chest bring in my trusty beetle and take everything from the chest. I will sift through as I collect and will store any decent items but I was wondering if with this luck I will get more relic yielding pieces or at least more powerful items?

    If the bonus luck gives isnt all that good I may give the suit to my tamer so I thought I would ask the experts here if they run a high luck suit on their Treasure hunters.

    Thanks in advance.

    Actually, no, it won't affect the chest loot - it will affect the loot on the guardians though.

    tbh, I only take the special items from most chests, unless I want something to unravel for imbuing. With EC in grid mode you can see exactly what's in the chest, so when I've got the things I'm interested in I just remove the chest with the rest of the stuff still in it.
