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

  • Higher Luck stats result in enemies dropping more loot and better rewards.
  • Luck influences the drop rate of common and medium-tier upgrade materials, aiding in leveling up gear more efficiently.
  • While Luck boosts rewards from common enemies, it doesn’t affect rewards from containers or game bosses, as their rewards are fixed.

Increasing The Probability Of Passive Abilities 

  • Many weapons and armor sets in GOWR have passive abilities that activate buffs during combat.
  • Luck increases the probability of these chance abilities activating, making them trigger more frequently during battles.
  • These passive abilities enhance Kratos’s combat effectiveness and can include buffs to strength, defense, or other attributes.
