What it does[edit]

Ironically, we still don't have any information on what this does on GuildWiki. --Life Infusion «T» 18:49, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Could it be that it increases your chance of getting a pig? And the negative fortune decreases your chance? Because I got several positive ones and then I got a pig. Nicky Silverstar 11:18, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
I think it does increate your chance of a pig drop, as I just got six lucky aura's and then two pigs. FirstSunspear 21:28, 8 February 2008 (UTC)


what the hell is DRI? --VVong|BA 20:10, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

No clue here. Maybe Drop Rate something-or-other. Should definitely be re-written to avoid mysterious TLA's. --Valshia 20:16, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Could be increased drop rate I did get a green item shortly after using my lunar tokens:-),not 100% sure if had that one will have to check it again,maybe near Ragos:-)--Dan Mocha 20:58, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
I recall Gaile claiming that it has no effect at all. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 00:11, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
01Apr2008 updateclaims: Increased the effectiveness of the Lucky Aura. Probably does something unless that was an April Fools joke. --Belzag 22:16, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
It was (thus giving the most convincing evidence from the defs so far that this really does nothing). --Xeeron 22:25, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
No change with the percentages on lock picks. The Waldo 22:46, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
i got lucky arua then used another fortune and got a celestual tiger so i believe that it affects the fortune 

Lucky Aura effect[edit]

As seen here, there is an aura surrounding one with Lucky Aura. Now here's my question ... Is it possible, that it couldn't be visible because of, I don't know ... graphic drivers? I mean, I've been using ATI Catalyst 7.8 for few months (since the only working Catalyst driver after 7.8 for AGP graphic cards is 8.1 which came out last month) and since I've installed new drivers, I've already noticed few changes in graphics in GW, and I'm wondering, if the drivers could do that (some stuff not showing or showing different than before)? --Шєвч [TALK] @ 19:58, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

It's likely, some graphics cards wont show boss auras. The Waldo 22:51, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Well then someone fix it... becuase i wanna see it :) Mr-HaXx 23:18, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Lucky indeed[edit]

3 slavers chest opened while lucky aura was on, 2 voltaic spear drops, both req 9. My guild mates were pissed at me lol. For the record: I do not believe that lucky aura has any effect, but this is just to good an opportunity to pass to get tons of people running into slavers with lunar fortunes, hehe --Xeeron 22:29, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Why a voltaic spear, instead of any other rare gold drop?-- 22:11, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
anyone tried opening the zaishen chest with the aura Chaos Beserker 09:43, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
I did an Urgoz With Lucky Aura, Req 9 Zodiac Sheild Inscip :D Amethyst Aegis.png Exalted Amethyst
I got one at the beginning of every round in HA, and captured Halls for a while. Also, I used one and then when I was playing, I got a whisper from my friend saying that he and his girlfriend were getting married, and he wanted me to be his best man. FleshAndFaith 03:11, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
I got one then the very next fortune i opened i got a celestual tiger WOOT user phenix flyer


Yeah, it was kind of overpowered. Too bad that I won't be able to Frenzy-Healsig solo Hell's Precipice on my monk anymore :( Paddymew 15:22, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Celestial Mini Pets[edit]

Perhaps this increases the chances of obtaining a celestial mini pet from a fortune? I opened up less than 40 fortunes, had at least one lucky aura on me and managed to get a Celestial Tiger even though it is only supposedly a 0.33% drop rate (about 1 in 300). --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

I doubt it; I got this loads of times, and it took me 400 damn fortunes for me to get a Mini. You just got lucky. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 21:25, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Think about it--almost everyone who gets a celestial minipet gets the lucky aura first. So the fact that you got your celestial minipet after getting lucky aura doesn't mean a thing.-- 18:31, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
0.33% chance doesn't mean that you will get one mini for every 300 you open, it's 0.33% for each fortune you open. -- 21:27, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

The problem is that in order to accurately determine the effect of the lucky aura on cele drops we'd need a control - an accurate count of the drop-rate without the aura active. In my experience it's extremely rare to get a mini drop before getting the aura. It's possible but I doubt it's common enough to accurately calculate the drop rate (and as far as I can tell no one has noted which came first when recording drops). It would be kind of funny if it turned out the base drop-rate for the mini was actually something like 0.1% but the lucky aura was so common it pushed it up though. 10:46, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

See Talk:Miniature Celestial Dragon#Drop Research, specifically this comment. -- 05:33, 7 February 2012 (UTC)


Maybe its just an aura called Lucky Aura? like preorder auras. ppl are over thinking 05:09, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
