1 Luck counts as 1 Evasion, 1 Accuracy and an increased chance of getting a Critical Hit.

It replaces Evasion and Accuracy, but it's still recommended to have atleast 30 Evasion. Still not sure why that is though. : )

I think it also increases Rare Steal/Drop success.

No, Luck has nothing to do with Steal/Drop Chances

Though Luck does affect the hitrate of attacks used by and directed against that character, raising Luck by one point isn't equivalent to raising Eva and Acc by one point. An obvious example would be a character under Darkness: when attacker and defender have the same Luck, you have a 10% chance of connecting regardless of Accuracy. Only the Luck stat (aside from abilities like Aim and Luck) will increase that chance.

In the PAL and Int versions, the sum of your Luck and Evasion stats needs to be at least 290 to guarantee evasion of all evadable attacks (including Dark Ixion's attack), and this obviously cannot be done by Luck alone. Evasion isn't needed in the other versions (since they don't include Dark Aeons), but I wouldn't recommend maxing Luck just for the purpose of guaranteed evasion. It's much simpler to raise the Evasion stat.

Besides increasing the probability of your own critical hits, Luck also decreases chances of receiving criticals. It has no effect on steal or drop rates (there are armor abilities to increase the rare Steal rate though).

"In the PAL and Int versions, the sum of your Luck and Evasion stats needs to be at least 290 to guarantee evasion"

You mean 190 ah?

PS.> My chars have 150~170 Evasion and 255 Luck and always Evade the evadables ones.

it's the SUM of your stats, not the average.

Example: 255 Luck +35 Evasion= perfect evasion

Luck is so hard to max out with all characters...
Well, maybe it's not hard. It's just very very time consuming.

It takes 9-10 hours to gather all the luck and fortune spheres. That's not too bad, but it's not for everybody.

I wouldn't battle against Earth Eater without a full-powered Wakka with Loner. It would cost me way more time.
