There is NOT a treasure hunter effect or any effect that increases drop rate with this on. You can believe it if you like. I'm not going to sit here and say to you "DON'T KEEP THIS IN YOUR INVENTORY!". What I WILL say is that if you keep it in there for the extra drop rates you think you are getting you need to tell you cult leader to come talk to me so I can convince you otherwise. Tested: drop rate "omg". Verdict: Are you high?

Here are some quotes others posted. They kind of gave me a laugh.

when i returned to zi tah i got a moss and a cuttings from almost every goobue i fought left the area

a fellow LS member of mine went 0/60 on the R/E Okotes after eating lucky egg he was 1/61

i got one fron a exp party lvl 55 and camped VE
got claim and ate egg and got empress band first try 1/1 had THF subbed for TH1 so i think it works prolly 100% drop if your thf above 45 with both TH and the egg.

wtf is that? ^

wow so this egg of mine does everything ^^
helps with synthing results, helps with drop rate and even can get me an opo crown...[/quote

All I can say is....2hours in Dynamis....no Af2. Then I eat Lucky Egg. 2 Pieces of af2 drop in 5min, lol.

LMAO~~~~~~~~ Here is the best one of all! Get ready:
ok me and a friend were in ordelles cave and im pretty sure you have heard of stroper chyme...well im 1/267 on him with a thf sub but as of today my friend brought a lucky egg with us and he didnt know what to do with it while we camped so i said eat it just joking around but then he did and we killed stroper chyme 13 times and got 2 archers rings and they are super rare! so just try that eat it and see my friend did the testing himself and having it in your inventory helps but if you eat it it makes it extremely good and it only lasts for 30 mins but you can have more than 1 also my friend used 1 and when it wore off he used another

It looks to me that this guy and the one who posted this about the Stroper Chyme have something in common:
[quote]I am on Ramuh server.. I am currently 1/1427 in a 5 day period.. I am not leaving till the second ring drops. My opinion is do not waste your time on this like I have, you will regret it.

The drop rate is NOT that horrible. I've helped 4 people get 2 each and have NEVER EVER had that bad of a drop rate. Stop smoking pcp. You said you are 1/267, then said you got 2 more rings? And 1427 in 5 days? No. You could've easily farmed the gil it takes to get Archer's Rings in 5 days...

They are all @#%^ing idiots. I don't mind for a karma attack, but I feel this post really needs to be posted. It'll be worth it once you all read this. I have an Opo-opo crown and that's all this egg is used for.

Lucky Egg is just an edible quest item to obtain Opo-opo crown. It does not give you luck or any form of Treasure Hunter trait at all.
No Luck Function

OK, for all that have been carrying around lucky egg and other "luck" items, they don't work. November 2007 developers at FanFestival confirmed, no special hidden effects for luck, no luck function in the game. So, the lucky egg still needed for the OO Crown, but that appears to be it. Of course, the items still do have some effects (as noted) when eaten, just not any luck in increasing outcomes of fights/drops/synths, etc.

farmed these the other night with my friend. i had no luck items, he had a 4 leaf mandy bud thingy. it was me (drg/thf) a drg/blu and a rdm. within 45 mins we all have Lucky Eggs. We got the first real fast, then waitd a while, then the last 2 dropd one after the other. we then went on to farm all 3 of us complete sets of lucky items bud,tail,egg in about a 2 hours total time.

i think thats proof enough that they work

I use all the luck items..... Im not after a debate, I have the space so I choose to carry them, I think this is personal decision that people have to make.

I have this, Four Leaf, wild rab tail and the mill desk..... as a point of interest I get good Kindred and Beasty seals in ptys.... in one pty I got 6/7 that dropped. This is NOT my maths but a friend worked this out as roughly 1 in 7,900 chance.

Maybe it was just my night.

It never seases to amaze me when people always jump up and say show me proof!

well the the pundulum swings both ways my friends, instead of asking for proof that it does indeed work, bring proof that it doesn't before shouting the odds.

just my 2 gil

i personally believe it does work, i have recently aquired TH2 and it werent working for me, so i went and got me rarab tail 4 leaf mandy bud etc, and its made a noticeable improvement.

**** it cud be shear coincidence, it might not, but id like to think they help therefor i shall keep them, until such a time SE or some else shows me indefinate proof it dont matter how much lucky crpa i have.

Gonna get one of these soon see if it helps some more ^.^

Wow! You got the Empress band first try?! That is pretty rare, considering nobody else has ever gotten an Empress band from VE. Ever.

I think theres alot more here than meets the eye...ive come to belive that when an spefic mob in a spefic area is over farmed (xp ptys excluded) it causes the drop rate to deminish...back when i farmed fangs in carpenteres landinf when it became popular drops were horid...after a while it mellowed out i went out there and had almost 10 stacks of fangs in a little over 3 hours...any way on the subject of the egg...i think its just a matter of opponion i realy think it does but thats just me another example is zi`tah (gilsellers farm gobbues to **** and back) i take my 75 mnk out there and get a cutting every 10-12 mobs where as my rdm lv 57 i getting them every 2-3 kills

This dropped in an exp. PT. I lotted a 540 on it and thought I was screwed, but my 540 won. The next day, I went to see if I could get my keys for MNK AF. I intended to wait for a BST that was leveling there(there's almost always someone killing bombs), to let me lot on a key. Well, no bsts leveling that day, but I started talking to someone that was waiting for Serket, and he agreed to help get the key when he was done. After the bodies were cleaned of from the MPK fest, we began. First wraith dropped key. I then ask if he has time for bedeaux and he says sure, so we go there and key drops on 7th kill. Half jokingly I mention the Crawler's Nest key, but he says sure. So we go kill helm beetles for 2 1/2 hours and no drop. It started getting discouraging, so I decided to eat the egg. Next pull, key dropped.

3 AF coffer keys in about 4 hours? Sounds pretty lucky to me. I was using WHM 60, and he was DRG 70. Waxing crescent around 40%.

i don't think it's superstition at all. there has been "luck" items since forever. i carry this and a four-leaf mandy bud (and i should grab a wild rabbit's tail) everywhere i go. in every party about 80% of the Kindred Seals drop to me. given.. i suck at lots, but when it comes down to waiting for items to drop from Treasure, i usually get the good **** :)

As far as I can tell from the posts here, there have been a grand total of 0 good tests done to see if this actually improves drops, and doesn't just make BRD's cry when you eat it.

Way to listen to rumors, go buy another Millionaires desk.

do you think it is possible that something such as DEX STR ACC EVA MND INT CHR etc could increase the affect of TH TH2 and just plain drop rates i had all this EVa+ boosting gear on my warrior and i got 3 travelers mantles in a row and when i switched for lvl 30 centrion gear i couldn't get drop at all just a thought but maybe EVA has more to it then avoiding attacks

my lucky egg history

My friends and I camped Sozu Rogberry a while back and we got claim. So 3 of us eat a lucky egg at the start of the fight. When he dies, what do we get? Nada. (I was thief btw). So, we decide that we'll hang around for a while and see if we can get him to pop again. About 3 hours or so later, we get him again (this time no eggs, not even in inventory). Dead Sozu Rogberry, and lo and behold, the thief's knife drops.

So what is the point? .... I have no clue. I think this whole lucky egg is just one giant conspiracy that was easily spread due to the name and description of the egg. :/ Who knows, I could be wrong (I certainly hope so... otherwise the egg I carry is just a waste of a badly needed inv slot).

P.S. Gee... whatever monster could you be talking about that drops the oh so precious ring... could it be the monster that you are 8/102 on? hmmm.... I wonder.... (responding to the guy who is secretly camping stroper chymes... oops?! did I say that outloud?)

Ok. i would definately like to have one of these. But i got a few questions first. Do you HAVE to eat them for the TH? Or do you just have to have them in your inventory? Also, Does this stack along with TH and a 4-leaf Mandragora Bud? And do you need to eat the 4-leaf Mandragora Bud? lol. thats it. Free cookie to anyone that can answer me. thx.
