Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Fixed Luck

Hack of Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow


The luck stat is bugged in Dawn of Sorrow and has almost no effect on drops. Even a full 99 points of luck only increases drop chances by a small fraction of a percent.

This patch fixes luck so that each point increases soul and item drop chances by +0.1%.

This patch only works on the North American version of Dawn of Sorrow.

Great for Replay

Reviewed By: VernonKun on 06 Oct 2017

I still remember the painful experience of grinding when I first played the game. This hack makes the drop rate much more reasonable. Good for people who wants to replay and have 100% collections. For the record, I just completed both Aria of Sorrow and Dawn of Sorrow with this hack with 100% souls and items (with the exception of Gergoth’s soul and later great swords). Each of these take me 17 hours. Without this hack it would take much longer to complete Dawn of Sorrow.
