Lucky is an Invention perk which has a 0.5% chance per rank when hit that the damage dealt will be reduced to 1. It can be created in armour gizmos.
This perk does not stack with Saradomin or Zamorak warpriest armour. Lucky works on all damage types, including typeless damage taken in combat. This means that it works on reflected damage and Helwyr's bleeds, but does not activate for Araxxor's cleave or when trying to eat a dwarven rock cake (cooled).^{[source needed]}
When the perk triggers, it prompts the following message with X replaced by the reduction: Your Lucky perk reduces the damage of this attack by X.

 All numbers in parentheses refer to level 20 gear.
Given a monster's minimum and maximum hits , and the rank of lucky , the average damage reduction of the perk over hits can be calculated approximately as:
Calculations[edit  edit source]
 The average ratio of damage taken, , from Lucky to that of without Lucky is
 The average damage reduction is then, after some rearranging,

 A calculator for this is at the top of this page.

 All hits that are taken have the possibility to proc Lucky.

 Clarification : This does mean that for that there are no elements in this set.

 The set of values in for integer is the same in both the numerator and denominator of the ratios for any given .

 Simplifications
 This can be simplified if the assumption is that every value integer , integer is taken to be the same . In this scenario, there is no random element and the above is then only dependent on the proc chance. A table is provided at the top of the page.
Using these simplifications, the damage reduction reduces to
