Arreyanne, what the difference between your buids in term of luck and power level?

He runs a storm at 710 and has 125 luck

It's a variable and another variable; meaning it's practically impossible to discern what is actually happening.

Let's say luck is a direct modifier to drop rate, well if your drop rate is 0-.9 you wouldn't ever see enough of a significant difference to determine luck is doing anything at all (as an example) even if it tripled the number.

This also means there's the potential of one player having a significantly higher base drop than another player making it seem like the luck modifier is actually hindering the second player.

RnG is gonna be RnG no matter how much you multiply it by.

I'm not being negative but I'm so sick of hearing/ reading about luck.

Obviously it's luck...so it's dry streaks and hot runs, and every variation of cadence in between. As everyone knows or should know by now because the devs outright said it.. 190% ( base 100+ 90= 190% ).

Thats the max so stick close to it and just try and have fun, Never forget that part.

Re: Luck % - Community Experiment

I have been getting about 1-2 Legendary pieces a week.  Since I have about 150 hours in the game, and around 8 total legendary pieces, you do the math.  I read about people getting 2-3 a run, and just shake my head, cause I know my luck is bad in things like Lotto, and games of chance, this just proves it. 

 

Glad people are doing well with their drops, maybe one day, I will get enough to move up and on...

The main problem with luck is that a majority of people do not understand how +190% works when it comes to odds of getting something. For an easy to understand example: Let us say with 100% luck for every 100 npcs defeated there is a chance of 1 legendary dropping. Which would be a probability of 0.01 or 1% chance of getting a legendary. If luck is changed to 190% then 1.9 x 0.01= 0.019 or 1.9% chance of getting a legendary. So yes, it may do something but the odds of getting say a legendary is still very low.

Luck stats arent the only factor....equip all your highest power gear prefably with some luck, run gm 3 only with people who are about equal to your level....enjoy the legendary rain...fyi you wont get a legendary to pop every 5min but you are pretty much guarenteed 1 or 2 every hour or so IF you play as a team....

The drop level depends on average item level of the group. And the much making seems to be very bad. As if this is the case the most important in matchmaking should be the same item level.

 

They definitely need to fix the drops in this game
