Lucky Devil


„That's almost too much luck for one person. If something's really, really rare - it probably falls into your lap sooner or later. Congratulations!”



Matter of luck, patience, persistence. Achievement that is splitted in two parts. Hated by many, but loved once they get it. Today we will talk about Lucky Devil achievement that grands us 4 points. We invited some Lucky Devils to share their thoughts and to talk about their road to success. Maybe you are struggling with this achievement now and need some motivation? Believe us, you will find it here. Let’s start.


As mentioned above, Lucky Devil is divided into two parts. The one that is considered easier part is to unrust golden armor from Slighty Rusted Armor. According to Tibia Fandom, chances to get one are 944 unrusts. You can loot that rusted armor from different monsters, but you can also buy it on the market. Pretty easy, or? So let’s move on to the second part.


Fishing from water elemental corpses. If it is only the beggining on your Lucky Devil-journey, you probably feel motivated and count on „Congratulations! You earned the achievement Lucky Devil” after each elemental that you use your fishing rod on. Of course, chances that you will get it after few tries are still there, in fact it’s a matter of luck.




Elyrea, achievement hunter from Antica, has looted Leviathan’s amulet after 43 water elementals (169 total in bestiary). When he got the other part (unrusted golden armor), he had just 208 water elementals killed. We also asked another achievement hunter from Antica, Nasty Kasper, about his experience with the amulet.


Nasty Kasper: My Lucky Devil Experience? It was years ago (ed. 2014), I was just starting to play after the break, I was around 200 lvl more or less. As always, you could find a lot of more or less useful things in my backpack. Of course there was a fishing rod, no worms, but it was there. Buried deep somewhere. Those were different times, there were not as many exp spots as now, especially with water elementals, there were no imbuings or other similar facilities in the game. Then I went to Talah - hydra island. It was probably the times when water elementals were still falling into holes. It was very popular to lure waters or other smaller monsters running there and kill only hydras there. However, I decided to try out everything that ran there. From the scraps of memories of that moment, I did not catch them for the achievement, only for loot (at that time, you could get any loot from water elementals only with a fishing rod). After the hunt was over, I went to the depot, unpacked the loot and packed myself for the next day. Only on the second day, I accidentally opened the backpack in which I had a fishing rod. I remember this surprise when I saw the amulet and started to wonder what it was and where from. One of the guild mates said then that it was needed for the achievement. I started looking for information, and it was true. This item was so rare that at that time this achievement was not 100% confirmed yet. Then I felt very satisfied and motivated. Since I have one of the very difficult and rare achievements why not start doing others? And I started ...



We wish all of you this kind of luck. However, it is not always like this. Some people need more kills, more time. We asked Lee Kun, achievement hunter from Pacera who is also administrator of Tibia Fandom and TibiaLD about his own experience and his way to Lucky Devil. He killed almost 39 thousand water elementals and over 4k massives!

Lee Kun: I usually don't "rush" through achievements, I rather take it slow and save money and patience. I started with the rusty armors, mostly buying them, and eventually got the golden armor a couple years ago. Since then I've been working-ish on the amulet, but like I said, very slowly. For the longest time I rarely put any effort on it simply because there were easier/faster achievements to get. Eventually I got to the point where Lucky Devil was one of the few achievements I had left.
Then, I occasionally hunted them, switching between Water Elementals and other weak creatures for bestiary. Later, for a few months I also started to hunt daily in a party and during this time I wanted to save Stamina, so once again I was rarely hunting Water Elementals. Over the past few months different things happened and I got to a point where I couldn't stall anymore. I got Deep Sea Diver and Firewalker, stopped hunting for exp and even had PC problems that prevent me from doing anything dangerous in game.
I almost always hunted the Water Elementals on the northern PH cave. The southern one is smaller and you must also kill lots of Quaras and Massives. Massives are of course also a chance to fish the amulet, but I wanted to get fishing statistics and couldn't mix data from both creatures. I hunted Massives in Calassa a few times as well but I gave up after about 4k. We don't know if the chances are the same or not but either way Calassa is much more annoying because of the speed, the stronger Quaras and the lower proportion of Massive Water Elementals. So I just hunted PH over and over again until I finally got it.


You probably wonder if there is any guaranteed success to fish the amulet. As we mentioned in the beginning – patience and persistence. But what if you are struggling with it too long and maybe need a break? Or maybe you are tired with killing just water elementals? There are hunting spots where you can finish your bestiary entries for different monsters and still have a slight chance to loot the amulet. Maybe try southern spawn in Port Hope, where you can also kill Quara Scouts: Hydromancer, Mantassin and Pincher. If you will use helmet of the deep or depth galea, you can also hunt Massive Water Elementals. There is probably chance to loot the amulet from them, but the main advantage is that you can make some steps underwater for Deep Sea Diver achievement. If you are checking what mini world change your server actually has, maybe you will be able to get Down the Drain achievement for killing 50 water elementals in Outlaw Camp Water Elemental Dungeon. Who knows, maybe you will be lucky enough to loot the amulet there? We have some tips for you from other players.

Lee Kun: As the name says this achievement is all about luck. My first tip would be to not spend too much time on it if you have easier/faster achievements to get. During this time you can kill water elementals if you get them in hunting tasks rolls (for Monsterhunter progress) or if they're boosted so you take advantage of the faster spawn rate. I do think it's worth to start buying the rusty armors though because they aren't very expensive but you'll still depend on other players to sell them to you (so you can't get several at once like you can hunt 8h of water elementals in a day if you want to).

Pyzaa: When I got bored of killing water elementals I asked my friend if he will make bestiary for those monsters. I was just walking behind him and I was fishing from dead bodies. I got the amulet after 200 tries during that hunt.

Nasty Kasper: Try to make bestiary on hydras or giant spiders if you don’t have it yet. On Talahu and Malada you can find some water elementals too. Not many, but if you have luck, maybe you will get the amulet.



Maybe you already have the achievement and have your own tips for the community? We would love to hear your story! And if you don’t have it yet, we wish that you got some motivation here and your journey to Lucky Devil will be a pleasure, not a struggle. 

Lee Kun: The nice thing about achievements is that the harder it is, more satisfying it will be to get it. I suppose that players who were really lucky and barely put any extra effort into it consider this achievement just another one. For me it's was one of the hardest achievements to get, so also one that made me very very happy. And now, every time I stop to think about my next achievements I'm a bit happier when I remember I'm done with that one, hahaha.

Btw: I keep the original Armor I unrusted and the Amulet I fished as tokens, they are worth a lot more than any other identical items.

  1. It's a good idea to bring a fishing rod when hunting Inq Seals (HFF -> Crystal Caves -> Quaras) since the quara section there contains a pretty decent amount of Massive Water Elementals too. :)
