Indeed it does, I managed to get 2 Jho gems for the Handicraft jewels I needed and a Scalp+Fang to finish my Vangis all in one run when I snuggled my pig once.

Lol if you think it works then it works...
say if you broke a window and a person says its bad luck too, in this world and day and time you were bound to trip over a shoe while entering house, if your a believer then you say its bad luck too. i would say wow..., how stupid was i not to see this shoe.
im just tired of all the believers being all gay with it and spreading the word to everyone :bounce:

I totally agree, just let me rerphrase that (I did an essay on superstitions once Real Happy): This is how superstitions get started, through coincidences. Because a few people got lucky after snuggling their pig, a huge myth comes up that pig improves the chance of getting rare materials. Think about it this way: How many people snuggle their pig and get rare materials? A bunch. How many people don't snuggle their pig and get rare materials? Quite a few. How many people do snuggle their pig and don't get rare materials? Way, way more. Also, if it had some truth to it, don't you think it would be added to this?

Superstition or not, the pig ACTUALLY DOES do something. It's been proven a few times, once even by a hacker we had here once.

I shall explain ...
Luck ... the MH skills, not the superstition. Adds a few variables to a certain number in quests that determine your rewards. That variable determines how many items you get in the 2nd row of the reward box. That section that usually gives bugs, shrooms, bone pieces and in later quests, sometimes even monster parts or tickets. The higher the variable you have, the more stuff you can get from that row.

Good Luck - Increases the variable by 1
Great Luck - Increases the variable by 2
Pig Snuggling - Increases the variable by 2(im 75% sure it's 2, if not than its 1)

Yall can look it up with the search function for it was tested.

I don't remember the thread jcn is speaking of, but I do believe that snuggling the pig increases your chances of getting rarer mats by a small degree.

To Snuggle, or Not to Snuggle........SNUGGLE GDit!! WTF can it hurt?

If your a pessimist about the whole pig thing, try this and ingrain it into your extra-quest curriculum. You WILL see a difference in your rewards, eventually.
Snuggle every other quest. That's it. That way if you don't believe, you'll still get the benefit of it if your wrong. If you do believe, well you'll still get the lower rarity items generally not received by chronic pig snugglers (that just sounded bad- "You got some of that Good Pig to Snuggle Maaaan?").

I personally believe in the pig, but I'll be the 1st to tell you it's iffy too, though.

Piggy has not been kind to me thus far. I snuggle'd for 5 Rathian+ runs and nothing rare came up. Then I didn't snuggle and 2 runs later, I got a Ruby.

like i said, the pig doesnt effect rarity items, it effects that second row of the reward box, that row that usually gives you stuff like bugs and shrooms, rocks and spheres

it is important to remember that all loot in this game is based on percentages. the pig increases the odds of getting rare items; however these odds will never reach 100% so there is no guaranteed way to get the items.


think about it like this, even if u wear the jaggi head mask you still wont get a gem every run. but if u wear the mask every run for 100 runs you will have more gems then if u did not wear it at all.

the pig may work, or not. you can hardly judge one way or another after just a few tries.
