|Expert Luck: increases your hero's luck by 3.|
Heroes with Luck as a starting skill:
Heroes with a related specialty:
- Melodia the Druid casts Fortune with increased effect, based on her level compared to the level of the target unit.
- Maximum positive luck is +3. This may already be obtained through artifacts and adventure map locations (e.g. Fountain of Fortune), so often there is little need to also spend a secondary skill slot on it.
- Lucky strikes are not sufficiently numerous or powerful to rival the bonus damage of Archery or Offense. Even when expert Luck increases luck from 0 to +3, the resulting average bonus damage is 2.4 times lower than what expert Offense provides to melee attacks, and 4 times lower than what expert Archery provides to ranged attacks.
- Luck is unpredictable and therefore cannot be relied on when planning fights.
