What Is Luck In GOW Ragnarok

In God of War Ragnarok, the Stats of Luck can be located in the Armor tab at the bottom of the stats section, written as LCK. Like other stats, such as Vitality and Strength, Luck is given less importance and is often ignored.

However, if you truly want to maximize your potential, you need to take this stat into consideration as well. The main function of Luck is to enhance the reward type obtained from enemies and increase the triggering probability of Chance Abilities. 

Increasing The Drop Rate

The first perk of LCK is that whenever you kill an enemy, it will drop more loot and better rewards. As the loot is random, you’ll receive different rewards each time. If you increase your Luck Stats, you can collect a stockpile of common and medium-tier upgrade materials as drop loot, which will help you level up your gear more quickly and efficiently. 

While you cannot receive some upgrading gear as loot, there are many common materials that you can collect in this way. This means that having upgraded LCK Stats is always helpful during the progression of the game. Although you receive more rewards from common enemies through increased Luck, it is not implemented on the Containers or Game Bosses as their rewards are fixed.

Increasing The Probability Of Passive Abilities 

Most of the Weapons in GOWR have a passive ability that activates a buff to enhance their effective ability. The description of the gear tells how often the Chance Ability will activate during combat. For example, the passive ability Of the Dragon-Scaled Armor set is that it randomly enhances the Strength and Defense of Kratos after performing successful dodge and parries from incoming attacks.

This ability of the armor is random, and you cannot predict when it will activate. But if you have high LCK Stats, we can say for sure that the chances of triggering of ability significantly increase as compared to those with low LCK. When a passive buff gets activated, you can see its name and effect duration from the left corner of the screen.

Other Perks Of Luck

While the main purpose of Luck is to enhance the loot and the chance of passive ability, it also influences some other factors as well. Among all the rewards you will find as loot, Luck will significantly increase the amount of two things: Hacksilver and Experience Points

Gaining more XP is a fair advantage in the game, as it allows you to unlock better Kratos’s skills and more abilities for improved and impressive gameplay. Other than that, having Hacksilver is also crucial as it helps you in upgrading your existing armor sets or unlock new armor for Kratos to dominate on the battlefield. 

How To Upgrade Luck

You can upgrade luck in a few different ways. First, you can travel the world and explore the seas in your boat. While your deep explorations, you will discover pieces of the Yggdrasil tree that enhances the stats effects. You can use these pieces to get Two LCK points for each piece if you have any in your inventory.

Other than that, the most feasible way to increase your LCK stats in God of War Ragnarok is by upgrading your equipment and gear. Also, if you pre-order the game, you receive a free Armor set for Kratos, which also grants LCK points. The Armor that focuses more on the Luck stat can further be upgraded to increase your points. So if you have the required materials to upgrade an Armor that enhances Luck Stats, make sure to go for it.
