    Getting ready to make a new suit for a character. Just wondering if Luck is still broken? What is the best level for Luck on a suit 1000, 1200, or 1400?

    It's been stated it doesn't work as intended. No I don't have a link.
    Luck does in degree get better loot. My Imbuer likes the results of a good Luck suit. I get more jewelry with 5 mods and better overall loot. I do regard most of it "Junk" for an imbuer. Just my 2 cents....
    if a new rng goes in & luck gets reworked it'll be a better day.
    I aint holdin my breath..........

    I don't know if it works as intended or not but it for sure works much more than just a bit.

    I really should just save a response on a note pad for each time this comes up, until it's corrected. :D

    First up, Luck isn't broken- at least not in the way people seem to think that it is.

    Here is the quote from Draconi, that he made just after he left EA/Mythic:
    So, it is working except for this part:
    So random weapons/armor/jewelry mods from monster drops are still going to miss the luck factor in some ways.

    The best level is the higher you can get, the better.

    I will not speak for the whole community on this, only from my experiences with luck and loot. YEPP. it's broken, has been for a long ass time, and no nothing ever gets done on it. Honestly I can't remember any other Dev mentioning anything about luck (could have missed a post or two tho) other than Draconi's post about it, and that was like ummmm THREE years ago or so. :sad4:

    I have a luck suit that is 1400+ and I leave it in the box for storage until they actually fix it. I have found there is a sweet spot at 775-825 range. I get better bumps when I am in that area.

    Then again I have heard those lately that theorize somehow the accounts themselves could be glithced and be unlucky.

    All that being said, I would experiment with different levels of luck and see if you notice a sweet spot for you. I can tell you that with RNG being like it is real life luck plays a part. Babble did get that right :thumbsup:
