    Looking for some info if someone can. Been back about 2 weeks and trying to get used to new stuff. You can get very high luck now so i had to try. I have got complete garabage with 1450 luck. I know the formula for the "chances" but question is did anyone get anything worth while with high luck? I tried killing swoops, scorpion thing, onis, etc. If there is something better to kill, would realy love to know. Thx.

    People will have their different views on it. For me it has never worked as intended although the dev's say that it's working fine.
    The only thing i have read from players is that it works in doom and that the luck of the highest damager is taken into account for a chance of an arti drop. I would only consider wearing high luck V's DF or peerless boss myself.

    i dont think luck has anything to do with how great the stuff is, it has to do with how much you get.

    mosnters have the ability to drop a max amount of stuff.
    usually like 1-4 magic items, 1 gem, 1200 gold.. something like that it varies.
    then the magic properties are set like runics. 1 to 2 mods, 35 to 50 intensities. it also changes per monster.

    so with high luck you will get the max items more often. not better junk.

    The guide does say that mods and intensities are affected by luck but as you point out each monster has it's own template and so if as in your example the range is between 35-50 and you get lucky with a max roll you will only ever get to the top end 'cap' of 50% and no amount of luck will take you over that mark. And so my assumption is that the only loot worth trying to effect is that dropped by the top end mobs who have a higher cap on mods and intensities.
