Luck

So, to get off of the whole server down mess, I wanted to bring up the subject of luck.  I saw one post in the official forums in which a person commented that HGL has a "luck" modifier on some items, which is essentially the equivalent of magic find.  Can anyone from beta confirm this?  I hope so, as magic find was awesome.  :)

    Yep I have a piece of equipment that has luck +32. I had no idea what it meant though. Perhaps now is a good to to actually read the manual. lol

  • It is and it does effect.

    I have 200 luck on live and it makes a huge difference on drops. Lots more legendaries have dropped for me along with 2 uniques as apposed to beta where I had no luck and at lvl 22 i had only seen 1 unique.

    I am only lvl 14 on live atm so it makes a huge difference if you want a comparison.

    I have a few items with luck on them. Haven't seen a difference in loot. Even w/o any i've been seeing better drops than what some ppl have reported getting so far. I've gotten at least 20 gold/yellows whatever they are. Tons of greens and blues.  So much loot drops it's hard to tell though.

    Actually one of my characters in beta had some equipment with luck on it.  I couldn't find where to look in my stats to see how much luck I had though?  But when I donned the lucky armor, then whenever I went into an instance, there was more areas that I could explore.

    Also... The little icons on the bottom right of your screen... whenever you do something related to those 3 icons, loot appears around you.  What do those icons stand for?  I don't have a book or anything to read, haven't received my game yet.

    Unless I'm blind, I don't see an explanation of them in the manual, which is kind of annoying (unless, of course, I am blind) ...

    Don't feel bad.  I haven't figured them out either.  :)  I also didn't see any explanation for them in the manual.

    From what I understood, those are short-term achievements to be met, the reward being that loot-drop you mentioned. The hammer-icon, as far as I could tell with my Blademaster, meant something kill "Kill X bad guys using a melee weapon". All three mean something similar. Do all three, and CASHING!

    Now playing: City of Heroes/Villains, Age of Conan

    Played: Eve, Hg:L, Vanguard, WoW, FFXI, Planetside, Neocron, Battlezone, EQII, AO, CoX, AA, DDO

    I win at Vanguard.
