Luck & Looting, free/ordered

4 posts in this topic

Posted

So I've heard from a few people that Luck does not work when ordered looting is on, it only works if free for all looting is on. Which seems very odd, I have worked for 3 luck from 150 titles, use a luck gem, bringing me to 4 luck. I invest in nodes like Hexe and Monastary to lvl 4-5 to up drops. I play -alot- more then my brother he isnt able to get this amount of luck. 

Now when the weekend comes and we play together, Id like to be able to benifit from my luck/node investment to up the drop rates we get in -total- when we party up, but if its on ordered looting and what was said is true, we get 0 benefits. If we move it to free for all, well its very random who gets what. 

I also remember our very 1st day of playing before we had any pets, we were able to open a corpse see a weapon/armor stone, close the corpse and let the other guy loot it, to keep things even. With pets this is impossible, and not using pets...welll we all know the outcome of that. 

and as far as I know the leader setting just sells everything and the party splits silver? rather then being able to allocate the loot e.i hand a Mark of Shadow to said party member when it drops.

------

all that being said does anyone have any insight on how luck/looting works with different loot settings? or knowing what Im trying to achieve what my best set up is? 

 

It would be a shame  if due to the loot settings I benefit more from being selfish and playing by myself rather then grouping with my brother or anyone else for that matter.

you know you can buy luck+1 crystals in calpheon from the vendor for 100k? they can go into ANY equipment..it's ez to get 5 luck..

also i think you're referring to special deals group setting..there's also other settings one i believe is greed/need or master looter? but i might be mistaken only ever used special deals or free for all

my main concern is when the luck stat is in effect or not, being at 5 means nothing if you dont know when the game is considering the stat or not. Ill check out the greed/need or master looter options if they are indeed in there, but that still leaves open the fact that luck may only be in effect during free for all loot setting and not any other being able to allocate loot or greed/need is nice, but not at the cost of actually getting -less- loot because luck is turned off ._..

you get the exact same drops at the same frequency using special deals as free for all so why would it be any different for the others
