i've read the skill and the way i understood wits was that it's about speed on looting. never noticed any difference on quality and i leveled up a few dedicated scavengers with the ninja skill
however there was some discussion about high wits characters and their own scavenging runs while you're not playing, and i think it makes sense. my high wits guy in my last playthrough after i loaded scavenged 10 ammo. maybe bias there, but it does make sense
I just don't understand why I played hours and hours, finding garbage. I've never found a katana or other blade or good blunt with low level guys. As soon as I have level 7 wits, it all changes. I do understand it could totally be coincidence. I guess no one else noticed, so I'll assume that is the case.
tbh i have no idea what this break item is. i thought it was meant as break the speed search (with low wits) and create the loud noise, was that it? or is it something to do with breaking open rutsacks and getting more stuff out of them?
Yeah, I don't get the break item thing either. However, I believe I am right about better wits better items. I tested it last night, searching neighboring homes alternating with no wits and seven stars. Seven stars found auto shotties and assault rifles and morphine.
No wits found a .22 pistol, flares, alarm clocks, and junk...
