Also, information from the luck thread has brought some light to the use of luck regarding boss chests. This, so far, only applies to boss chests.

When you open a chest, the game picks a random short list of possible treasure from the total possible treasure the boss can drop. It then applies an algorithm on each item in the series to see if you get that item. If the check fails, then it moves down to the next item on the list until you get something.

The interesting part is that on normal to rare items, the algorithm includes luck as normal. Luck in this case increases your chances of obtaining an item. But on the super rare items (yasutsuna, valmanway) luck is NOT part of it. It has it's own formula.

What this means is: luck is bad when trying for rares. You want the formula check for the common items to fail and the only way you can influence this is by keeping your luck as low as possible. Hopefully it will fail enough times to allow you the chance for your Death's Scythe.

Summary: you want items galore? Increase luck. You want valmanway? Decrease luck.

Should add something about the screen size...

First thing anyone should do before playing the game is change the screen size options to include 2x as well as 3x. You can press in the right analog to change the zoom. You don't have to play with your character super tiny.

The OP mentioned this in the 2nd paragraph...

Why did this get stickied

THIS SUCKS

belongs in FAQ


While it may belong in a FaQ, it is still useful as a sticky.

I do see you get around though and it is fail now that before you tried to defend your "trolling" as pure opinion.
