  • Luck challenges technically have Narrow difficulty, ranging from -5 (guaranteed success) to 4 (100% success chance).
  • In practice, since no character can gain or lose Luck, only the success chance matters.
  • The difficulty of Luck challenges can sometimes be modified by other qualities, such as A Little Knifework.
  • Luck challenges may also have rare successes, as sometimes seen when upconverting items like Jade Fragments
