Vindication. All the long playing players have said that the luck of the person that opens the chest has no noticable bearing on the drops that come out, and it turns out we were totally correct. So basically the only way to use this information effectively is for everyone on the team to be running high luck gear during the boss fight.
This does show how misleading empirical evidence is. So many people opening chests in high luck gear either solo or as a team were toally off base and any positive results were purely as a result of the RNG.
Taking this into consideration, the best way to get good drops is to solo the game yourself wearing max luck gear. The boss health will be at it's minimum while he deals his minimum damage levels. You are guaranteed to get the last hit in.
Very interesting news. Now I would like to know if wearing Soul Eater rings increases the chance of a boss dropping its soul. And if so, do you have to trigger the chest drop for it to take effect or not.
EDIT: On that note I decided to send Konami a ticket myself asking about the effects of the Soul Eater Ring.
