Difficulty actually affects the chance for rarer items to drop; as in, Peaceful Mode has the lowest drop chance, while Very Hard Mode has the highest drop chance.
Someone has sumstuff somewhere and stuffs it in stuff with something…

Yep I always turn the difficulty to the very hard mode when I find a titanium chest plus I equip my luck armor and as you might guess get a piece of bread from it :|

I feel like if you're playing on peaceful and turn the game on to very hard only when you find a chest your luck chance won't change. As well, from what I remember, Jack said there are 2 types of luck, double drop chance and then better loot chance.

The ingame stats thingie shows
"Luck Chance" (default is 1.00, my armor takes that up to 1.03)
and
"Luck Amount" (default is 0.00, I can't remember ever seeing it change, but it's not like I've ever tried)

Same thing, though it was before the 3.00 update.
Seeing that mobs dont despawn when you quit to main menu, its safe to say that the same can be said for difficulty drop.

I always set my playthrough to very hard anyways. Its not so difficult as long as you have your ranged and melee with decent range.

Yeup, Constantly on very hard, only changed to peaceful once. Have had no shortage of "rare" drops that's for sure.

Luck doesn't effect chests it only effects mob drops. Higher the luck chance is it is more likely to get a rare mob drop. Higher the luck ammount the higher chance to get multiple raeres per mob drop. I have tested this with a program I downloaded and did several trials on chests and mobs of various types with luck chance and ammount set to 100%. The drop rate is 100% on mobs every time and on chests it is a hit or miss as done in normal gaming. :o_O: :no: :disapproved:

Are you completely sure on that? The chance i get treasures or manufacts from chests was noticably higher whenever i drink a luck potion (which increases my luck from 1.2 to 1.61, which is a pretty huge boost).
