What is your current Luck Level?  And what path did you take to get there?

Roughly 100%. Actually got an exotic essence of luck from a green item today. I never even dreamed that would be possible.

I bought a few thousand blue items a day before the update when they were still around 50 copper each. The double clicking was fun.

Around 36% I think. I'm not too concerned, its going to be a long term process and I'm ok with that. Having a 0.2% vs 0.05% chance of getting something worthwhile doesn't excite me.

I loathe farming, so I figure it's not much used to me. Just like 44% or something.

I'm only at level 24. I've been selling green and blue drops while the market is hot.  I'll consider buying in bulk when items move back down to their lowest prices.

Though I'm left to wonder how many hours I would have to play for the increased luck to make it more profitable than simply selling everything and ignoring luck gains altogether.  This would also include the salvaged crafting materials that can be sold as well.

It requires 1 million luck points in total to just reach luck level 183. :surprised: To put that in context, the luck points earn for doing the dailies and monthlies for a full year combined is only 30250.

I'm at level 50, it happens from casual salvaging the golds I earn from doing meta events, and the golds that drop as a result of the increased MF.

32% by salvaging for daily and monthly. Not much, but I never had the feeling anyway that MF adds much to droppings. I used to have around 180% and there were days when I found nothing at all and days when rares kept dropping. Changing maps frequently is the key.

I'm sitting at 80% from luck right now.  Assuming each additional level of MF requires 10 more luck than the previous, it'll take 758,030 more luck to reach 300%.

Somewhere between 40 and 50%  I had been saving the blues I got as drop from the invasions.  I had several mules full.

I saw somebody in LA this weekend who complained because he couldn't use his stack(!) of exotic luck thingies... As he was already at 300% (or so he claimed, nobody could check the last, naturally).

79% currently. Salvaging all blues and greens I get as drops. Gold income has slowed down significantly, but I'm already seeing returns in rare and exotic drop rates. Either that, or RNG is in my favor lately.

I am at about 78%. Salvaged about a stack of ecto. I got a lot of piles of crystalline dust back which I sold so it wasn't THAT bad money wise. I got heaps of points from this, but geez what a pain it is sitting there double clicking for ages...

I'm somewhere in lower 50's. I think 54%. Notice nothing in drops from 0%. But it's still quite low.

You do know you can "stack" them with an Artificer?

I'm currently at 71%.

I've been salvaging all of my blue and green drops since the account-wide luck was introduced.  A large number of the items I've salvaged have come via loot from invasions, both drops and from opening champ bags.  In a couple recent invasions, I used well over 100 salvage charges on blues and greens from item drops and loot bags.  Most blue and green salvages give 1 or more essence of luck, and sometimes you even get the rare or exotic versions .

Sitting around 80% now, I salvaged about 30 ectos at one point, but got tired of double clicking. I have salvaged everything that dropped, including exotics since the change.
