Pets picking things up decreases your luck. I put mine away when I'm at a boss and say a prayer before I loot.

10% of the time it works every time.

In before this gets taken out of context...

Always find an epic spot for tempting your RNG fate on big enhancing items, nothing upsets the god of RNG like sitting in front of the auction house.

Confirmed best place to attempt enhancement is in front of mutant ogre.

Whenever you are doing a gathering quest (guild or otherwise) that requires you to gather a large number of one item, the second to last gathering cycle will always yield just enough items that you will be 1 item short of completion, no matter how many of the item you could get in one cycle.

We have one member who has crazy rng.  It is well known in our guild that if you want an item to drop for you, you need to party with this player, have him lay on the ground, and tea bag his face.  He is not for sale.

How nice to have this finally confirmed by a CM.  I noticed people keep trying to climb higher to enchant in their videos.  First it was just the barrels facing the dock, then the roof of the storage at Velia, then it's the wind vane of the house beside the blacksmith, then it's the top of the ruins near the shipyard.

Higher the enchant the higher you need to climb for success, otherwise it's bad feng shui!

I actually have an altair for RNJesus in my house in Heidel after seeing it somewhere once. 10/10 successes so far from me and my friends to enhance gear with concentrated stones. I recommend using it. The more sacrafise we make the more satisfied he will be.

Ever notice how your webcam mysteriously turns on when you play BDO? 

@CM_Aethon is watching you, and sets your RNG depending on your mood and body language. 

Remember, if you want that TET you have to give good time.

Going into enhances with the thought that I'm going to fail seems to give me ungodly rng... I double tapped a pair of muskans to tri last night (duoed at 23, then immediately tri'ed off the 0)

I'm a living voodoo doll, so if I'm team up with him, my RNG would become neutral o.O

yup    people who spend 0 get tets in the 30s, people who spend $$$ get tets in the 100s

I spent $$$$ and I just didn't enchant shit . I bought the gear , so my fail rate is at 0%. 

rip Iron. sometimes you'll learn.

That your zodiac has influence over your rng. With trent owl i get allot of drops but enchants fail more with a char who has that zodiac sign. Goblin gives me allot of blackstone drops like it is some kind of event, but the rare loot drop sucks. And black dragon gives me more success in enchanting. I have no proof of it of course but thats my tinfoil hat theory.

Also since the zodiac signs are going to be randomised it doenst really help me to shake of this tinfoil hat.

The longer you farm a certain kind of mob the lower your drop chance is for rare items.

This actually was a mechanic in DIKUmuds. Each mob maintained a 'kill list' of the players that killed it, and how many times.

Since memory was at a premium back then (and everything was server-side) the list was only 20 players long. So the trick was go do something else for a while, and let other players bump you off the list.

 

The "get up high to enchant" thing is interesting, as I've always gone near the water (low points, obviously) and I've had terrible luck enchanting.

And I'm also convinced your zodiac sign affects a lot more than just cozying up to vendors.

Being away from the game for some days, gives you better rng when you log back on

good loot rates are tied to hotspots, like fishing hotspots, that move around mob packs and different mobs within the same region / level.

I so understand you avoiding this rng trap. Somehow it seems worse then a slot machine.

Most likely just an attempt to access all attached devices in case they're used for the game.
