Luck is a trap attribute that gives the player a chance of catching a mouse even if it would have normally gotten away. Aside from power, a trap's luck rating also provides a chance to catch a mouse purely from luck. It is not uncommon for lucky traps to catch mice that are far more powerful than the trap or even sometimes outside of its primary power type; although luck makes no difference when using a power type that is ineffective against a mouse. Luck does not affect the attraction of mice. Additionally, hunters who complete special offers or donate for SUPER|brie+ receive an additional 7 luck added to their trap's luck and a Golden Shield on their Hunter's Profile page for 30 days or more.
The actual mechanics of how the various trap attributes work to catch mice are a mystery and part of the fun of the game is figuring out what strategy works best against the mice you are interested in catching.
Details of luck
Luck is nonlinear, so the more luck you have, the more effective it becomes. Hence 8 luck is more than twice as good as 4 luck.
The trap effectiveness meter ignores any contribution of luck to your catch rate. This means the trap effectiveness meter is a very poor indicator of your ability to actually catch a mouse.
The weapons with the highest luck are the Chrome MonstroBot and limited edition Chrome DeathBot, both with 30 luck. The base with the highest luck is the Rift Base with 11 luck. The Golden Tournament Base has only 8 luck on its own, but it gains an additional 4 luck when coupled with a Champion Charm to give a total of 12 luck from the base, or combined 15 luck for the paired base and charm.
The charm with the highest luck is the Ultimate Luck Charm (20 luck). The event-only Lucky Rabbit Charm provides 6 luck, while the more common Ancient Charm and Chrome Charm both provide 5 luck. The Champion Charm gains a bonus of up to 4 luck when paired with a tournament base.
Thus the highest possible luck value in-game is 78 luck, achieved by pairing the Chrome MonstroBot or Chrome DeathBot (30 luck) with Rift Base (11 luck), an Ultimate Luck Charm (20 luck) and the Lucky Golden Shield (7 luck) at Twisted Garden with the Yellow Dewdrops poured out (5 luck) during bonus luck event (5 luck); although that particular combination has the wrong Power Type to catch any mice in that location.
Since luck is nonlinear, it is a good idea to pair high luck bases with high luck traps and high power bases with high power traps.
