    Default 1.1 Content Update (73502)

    • When a luck enhancer triggers, and the mob is capable of dropping items of one rarity level rarer than the item which would have dropped, you get a random item of the rarer rarity instead.

    So, this means that with Asteroid Miner's enhancer I won't get white stuffs while others without enhancer get green and purple? 'Cause I think I bought that to not to be like it was. Well, for me it's egal. I'll never buy that enhancer anymore. For me it's enough to fool me once.

    so, you're saying the trigger point for the miner's luck enhancer was NOT correctly set up until this patch?

    What about everyone that spent plat on them between the initial rollout and the fix?

    Just curious if there will be any restitution for the cash outlay for a bugged item.

    Allow me to shed some light here. The luck enhancer was not broken before but we decided to make it even better! Here's how the luck enhancer works, before and after the patch:

    Old Luck Enhancer
    Whenever you receive a drop the system rolls for what loot you will receive. With the old luck enhancer the system would roll for your drops twice, then give you the better of the two items. This happens behind the scenes. So it was possible to roll two white items and then receive the better of those two whites. This is how all luck increases have worked in STS games up to this point.

    New Luck Enhancer
    The new luck enhancer still rerolls your loot, but the rerolled item will always be one rarity better than the item you should have received. With this enhancer if you roll an orange the system will reroll and give you a random green item, assuming there is a green item that drops for your level in that map.

    As you can see the old enhancer was not bugged, but we have reworked the enhancer to be significantly better. We did this because we love you! <3

    Yupp. That's how I got whites and greys at all the 30 seconds, except one green. But I though it was working like if there are 5 players in the dungeon and we kill the Mysterious guy and noone using enhancer, except me, than I'll be the luckiest one.

    In the old system, if it triggered it said "Feelin' lucky" but if it didn't re-roll a better one and it gave you the original roll, it didn't say anything else. So that's how you might have gotten a grey. But if it did get a better item (determined by color) it said "You are lucky!" and you get the better one, so that's how you sometimes would get a white item and they'd say you are lucky.

    At least that's how it was in PL.

    In the new, apparently, if you roll a grey it re-rolls a white, white goes orange, orange goes green, etc... totally different.

    Yupp.. But we are talking about the new Asteroid Miner's enhancer, that gives 100% better luck/ reroll chance, not 25% chance for a reroll as it is in the simple Luck enhancer.

    So.. I got all of the items as better ones.

    Hmmm... Another update right now.. What's that?

    Thanks for a really nice patch! Mainly, I just wanted to admire the beauty of the phrase, "rarer rarity". It just sings, doesn't it?

    Thanks for the clarification! We ran a SERIOUS in depth test of the 100% luck potion in the guild the other night, and we could not find any significant increase in how it works over normal drop rates.

    Might take the time to retest it again and see if we can actually make it work this time.

    This might just make it worth it to buy another batch of plat.

    If a pink drops in that map yes... But as per the summary, only if a pink drop is available in that map.

    Are the pinks from the Mysterious Figure in the drop table, or a separate roll? If they are separate, would this affect them?

    Ah, so now the lixer increases base luck. Much better. Previously the enhancer was borderline, now - statically more robust!

    Thx for the clarification Flip.

    Default Enhancer not working properly

    The enhancer doesnt work properly, here's a screenshot to prove it, this image has been uploaded directly from my iphone and hasnt been tampered with what so ever. The thing is that i got a blue item without it being re rolled. I wasnt happy with the outcome, however the Star Legends were helpful and they did reimburse me.

    The fact is that i had spent a fair bit of time running after pink items and i would much rather have choose to receive a random pink item then the premium, if this is possible i would like the staff to contact me on my email. My character name is Darkshadowzz.
