I think some of my items just moved around.
I used a 100% lockpick booster and failed a lockpick.

I get a LUA error when opening the crafting menu.

Code: [Select]
[ERROR] addons/nondb-beta/lua/nondb/sh_store.lua:976: bad argument #1 to 'JSONToTable' (string expected, got nil)

When using a lockpick booster, you need to kill yourself and respawn, otherwise it won't take effect. The same applies to other booster packs.

Plus, when using a booster that increases a stat by 100%, it basically means the chance for that stat to work is doubled, it doesn't mean that its guaranteed to work. Someone could have 100% rare find chance, but that doesn't mean there guaranteed rares from opening crates/chests.

50 + (50 * 100%) = 100%...

It's not that simple...

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but say an item has 2% chance to be found, with the booster pack it would be 4%

Yeah, and I had a 50% chance of picking the lock.

To reiterate what has been said a thousand times... Formula:

Code: [Select]
chance = baseChance / ((100 + attribute)/100)

Example:

Code: [Select]
Base chance to find a relic (example): 20% --> 5
Better chance to find a relic: 50% --> 50
Chance = 5 / ((100 + 50)/100) = 5 / 1,5 = 3,33 --> 30%
