The ultimate answer is priceless due to the fact you get three free wishes if you acquire the glorious gold of the Lucky Leprechaun. However, let us assume you’re quite nuts and refuse to give back the pot of gold for the wishes. Instead, you cash it in like a complete fool! A Leprechaun’s pot o’ gold generally contains 1000 one-ounce pure gold coins. At the current April 2022 gold rate of $1,956 per ounce that makes a pot of gold worth $1,956,000.
Consider the fact that you passed over wishing for a billion dollars, or more, for this paltry $1.956 million. Not to mention wishing for a plethora of other things that money might not be able to buy. Fantastical things such as immortality! The real worth of a pot of gold is its priceless wishes. The glittering gold is the source of a Leprechaun’s supernatural power and good fortune. If you cash their gold in they will most likely hound you for all the rest of your days. The little lucky fellows can hold a never-ending grudge when they feel cheated! They often get downright ornery, and could possibly impart bad luck upon you!
The Three Leprechaun Wishes
You can also get those same wondrous wishes without finding the gold. Most of the time it’s hidden at the end of an elusive rainbow. The paranormal calculations required to find rainbows end is something best left to master metaphysical mathematicians or those who practice powerful magic. Your best bet is to simply capture the Leprechaun. One must devise a Leprechaun Trap baited with the highest quality shamrock. A real piece of gold in the middle of it increases your chances of success. Usually, a cage of pure iron is employed for this task. Take extra care in your capture, and containment method so there are no hard feelings after the wishes are granted. Do not use The Leprechaun Summoning Spell to catch them! This is only for help against dark Leprechauns who are threatening you.
Wishes Based On Luck
Remember that Leprechaun wishes aren’t like Genie wishes. Leprechaun wishes are based on good luck imbued upon you. This means you don’t get the malicious trickery that the Genie’s wishes are infamous for! After that, you have to put in some effort, and let good fortune take its coincidental course. So you can’t wish for world peace but you can get a billion dollars by winning lotteries, gambling, playing the stock market, etc. As for immortality, there can be a number of methods in which you would luckily stumble into it such as being injected with top-secret cellular regeneration nanobots from the future courtesy of a time traveler, or perhaps a top-secret government project. You could be lucky enough to find a powerful practitioner of magic to imbue you with an eternity of youth. You may also wish for love, and it will find you. However, you must at least leave the house every so often. With good luck on your side, you will win every time!
Despite the outward limitations of Leprechaun’s wishes there is a chance to grant various other wishes via magic. Leprechauns can channel their luck into magic and they do have the ability to perform spells. Although not required by supernatural law to do so they could go beyond lucky wishes and delve into their mystical magics. This is where treating the Leprechaun with deep respect comes into play. It’s not often they will go to the enchanted effort but it’s worth a shot by simply being nice to them. Stroke their ego and say it was pure luck you managed to capture them or find their gold. Befriending a Leprechaun can imbue your very soul with eternal luck to infinity and beyond!
