How can "luck" be a skill you train? Wouldn't that mean it isn't luck, but rather... skill? The very concept of luck as a skill is flawed.

Furthermore, this seems like a shameless attempt to just add more loot for no extra effort. You even say the skill will be leveled simply by getting drops on the luck drop table. So it's a skill you level up by doing literally nothing different, and you get extra loot based on... how much extra loot you've received.

No support.
I'll keep score from now on.

maybe you are lookin at life with a narrow belief system.
No, I just happened to roll high Intelligence during character creation and that gave me the ability to know the meaning of words.

You cannot train your luck. Luck is an abstract concept describing the experience of notably positive, negative, or improbable outcomes. In other words, it's your perception of purely random events.

It is the result of our evolution training our brains to recognize patterns, often in cases where there is none. We view a series of totally unrelated positive or negative events to be somehow related to us or something we did. A person might believe they are lucky because, by chance, positive things happen to them. This leads to confirmation bias, where people will search for or interpret events that prove their preconceived notions. In this case, someone might believe they are lucky, and when good things happen, they are solidified in that belief.

if we go by what you are saying, and luck isn't realistic then most stuff in every game should be removed, cause it's not realistic.
My argument is not that this shouldn't be added because it isn't realistic. You seem to have misunderstood.

My argument is that this skill is just an attempt to get more loot for doing nothing more than you're already doing, and that luck is literally not a skill. You cannot train luck.
