Lucky Charm

Lucky Charm increases your likelihood of finding extra treasure whenever loot is stashed.

Lucky Charm is a civil ability in Divinity Orginal Sin 2. Lucky Charm increases your likelihood of finding extra treasure whenever loot is stashed.


Lucky Charm Notes

  • If Lucky Charm happens to activate when you loot an object, you will be notified by a 4-leaf clover visual and a distinct "shwing" sound.
  • When looting an object that lucky charm activated on, the lucky charm loot appears in addition to whatever other loot already existed there.
  • It is unclear exactly how much benefit you get from each level of lucky charm, but it is definitely possible to get purple level items from levels 3-4 of lucky charm. Some players have also reported getting "legendary" rarity items from levels 4-5 lucky charm. Higher levels of lucky charm absolutely do increase the net average quality of loot received. 
  • Lucky charm can proc on essentially any lootable object, from crates to barrels to fish carcasses. It is unclear if the type of object being looted affects the proc chance or loot quality.


Version History

  • As of version v3.0.158.595: Lucky Charm is now a party-wide talent. Players no longer need to select the character with the talent to open containers
  • Version v3.0.151.229 and older: Only triggers with the one with this talent, not the teammates.

      does anything happen if i have lucky charm on multiple people? Or does it just apply the highest one? I'm gonna assume its the highest one and put more stuff into other abilities

        I think it is area dependant.
        I was as level 12 at the Sawmill with the Lone Wolves and it gave me a level 14 legendary..Moving to a lower level area gave me lower level item..I am not sure if having higher than 5 does anything like Bartering or Thievery...
        I suspect it does not.The frequency it procs looks the same as 5 and as 7.(with gear)
        Level 1-2 gives scrolls money or grenades.Maybe green items.

          As of recent patch (Hotfix v3.0.159.021), I'm pretty sure I saw the message "X shared Lucky Charm with Y" while looting a box and getting the 4 leaves clover visual, so it seems they have changed it to work for the whole party.

            is there any benefit from having lucky charm on 2 characters? I have it maxed on one, does it make sense to pour it into 2 characters now that it is "shared" across the team?

              151.229 patch: If I have 8 lucky charm (5 base + 3 from gear) the luck bonus will never trigger, however if I decrease it to 6, gears start pouring. Definitely needs fixing....

                If a chest is locked, will lucky charm proc from the person who picks the lock? Or can I pick the lock with a high thievery character and switch to my lucky charm character to open it?

                (I only just started the game, so forgive me if that's not how lock picking works)

                  The rarity of your "bonus loot" depends on the loot containers level. For example: Divine items are available once you reach level 16 on your characters, as such, you can only find Divine items in loot containers which are able to spawn level 16+ items. I did find my first Divine item via Lucky Charm on the Bloodmoon Isle and a lot more frequent on the Nameless Isle. Same applies to Legendary items, which usually start being available in Act 2 etc. -- My Lucky Charm rank is 10 currently, yet I am not sure if the actual rank of Lucky Charm determines the possible rarity you find or rather how frequently you actually "trigger" the bonus loot - I feel like the latter is the case.

                    I don't think this is true:
                    Only triggers with the one with this talent, not the teammates.

                    Got 0 luck on my main char, but 7 on companion and got legendary boots from fish barrel and clover with sound.

                      retested this after release of patch 143.909

                      maxed at 5, +1 from gear (so LC at 6)

                      opened 200 containers in Act 1

                      -very first trigger was an epic level dagger, (level 2, heh), so you can find epic gear right from the start in act 1.
                      -most of the gear was either rare or epic level, with a few magic pieces but no legendary.
                      -the gear was usually better than what vendors were selling, and most of my best gear was from LC up to level 7.
                      -adds a bit more interest to opening every container you see.

                      conclusion: totally worth maxing this skill on one character, still.

                        The character with Lucky Charm has to be the one opening all the containers to get it to trigger? Or can you get the bonus if someone in your party has Lucky Charm?

                          You can get Divine items aswell from Lucky charm, Not sure what minimum level is required but i think it's 6.

                            Also if lucky charm activates looting an object you can reload a previous save, loot everything up until that point again, and save scum for stats as well as go loot from a different object to spawn a different item (Example, you loot a belt you can load the save, go to a different barrel, and get boots, and proceed to save scum the item for the stats you want)
