Does Luck Stack?

Say I have three items. One gives Luck, the spell. Two give Luck +1 bonus. Does this mean that all my rolls get +3?

    As I understand it, yes, Luck can be stacked.

    How powerful is the luck effect? Was it a staple character feature in AD&D 2nd Edition, or was it something that was invented by Bioware? Moreso, is there any explanatiion as to why it is so rare effect on items in BG´s?

    It seems powerful. It's hard to feel, really, as it's just more RNG in your favor. But I play with Item Revisions, so I ended up with these items at the near end of SoD.

    Chant has an effect similar to luck, in that it increases the party's melee damage and decreases incoming spell damage. Also, fatigue penalties are negative luck penalties, which means a fatigued character could easily get wiped out by a Fireball. Watch out!

    People often underestimate the little numbers, focusing only on the biggest ones. If +3 luck is insanely powerful, then +1 luck must be one-third of insanely powerful, which sounds pretty good.

    Getting +6 to luck for one character would be amazing. Chant gives +1 luck for six characters, which is very similar, but it's not nearly as eye-catching and is much easier to overlook.

    I'm always having my clerics prep the party with Bless/Chant (or with IWDification Prayer/Recitation/Righteous Wrath of the Faithful). The little boosts quickly add up and I tear through things with ease. My big complaint with the Luck spell was the short duration (but I believe Spell Revisions improves that).

    Spell Revisions improves basically everything. There is no spell in SR that's not useful.

    This is proving a challenge as my first playthrough with it in BG2 is with a sorcerer.
