For years, Jagex Ltd. has offered Runescape‘s players small ways to alter the drop-rates of desirable loot.  Today, however, the company has taken a new approach to giving players agency over their profit-making.

A project started by Mod Timbo during the February Game Jam, this update radically changes the ways players can improve the loot from monsters and other situations.  Old items such as the Luck Potion have been updated, but new items, such as the Luck of the Dwarves ring, have also been included.  These items now modify the player’s Luck, which comes in four tiers.  Each of these tiers provides bonuses to different aspects of the game such as the drops from Slayer monsters and Clue Scrolls.  For precision of information, the table has been copied from Jagex’s website;

  • Level 1-50 Slayer monsters
