How to Get the Recharging Aspect in Diablo 4

Lucky Hit in Diablo 4 is a bit of a fickle mechanic – it’s taken the community quite some time to work out exactly how it functions. We now know, of course, that Lucky hits are their own class of chance hits, separate from Critical or Overpower hits. Lucky hits can trigger effects depending on our Skills or gear, like the chance to make enemies Vulnerable. Unlike Critical strikes, however, increasing the chance to deal Lucky hits is a little more difficult, so let’s see how we can get even luckier. Here’s how to increase Lucky Hit Chance in Diablo 4.

Increasing Lucky Hit Chance in Diablo 4 With Gear

Some gear drops with the Utility Affix of +X% Lucky Hit chance. This Affix can appear on Amulets, Rings, Weapons, Shields, and Gloves – so if you’re looking to reroll an Affix using the Enchanter, these are the items to target.

There are hundreds of Affixes in Diablo 4, and an increase to Lucky Hit chance is only one of them, so don’t get discouraged if you have a hard time finding one.

Increasing Lucky Hit Chance in Diablo 4 With Elixirs

The Elixir of Combatant Fortune, which I have found two of from Helltide Chests, increases Lucky Hit chance by 30% for 30 minutes (as well as the usual experience increase of 5%). This Elixir is rare – like I said, I’ve only found two of these, so use them wisely.

Lucky Hit chance increases are additive. This means, for example, if you were using a Skill with a 20% Lucky Hit chance, and you popped an Elixir of Combatant Fortune for an increased 30%, you’d get the following:

20% [Base Skill Chance] x 1.30 [Increase from Elixir] = 26% Lucky Hit Chance

This means even the biggest bonus to Lucky hit chance you can get will only increase your base chance by a fraction of its normal value.
