Right, want to clear this up and it caused a bit of a 50/50 in the community and angered a few, this is my idea to maybe put a bit of balance on the situation and then a counter idea to fix it up and hopefully keep even ground on prices/value for upgrades and taking mind of the eco too.
So the new update allows 100% success rate with scrolls, but the costs are somewhat worrying as the numbers needed for some upgrades are far beyond the normal market price people wish to pay for the Ranks they provide.
Now i've checked the POS market a bit, currently i see most Regular Donator scrolls going for about 20t, that will be my baseline value here!
-Donator scroll requires 10 to upgrade into super
-15 super are required for extreme
-25 extreme are required for legendary
-35 legendary are required for uber
So if we do the simple maths at least, 150 donator scrolls for a extreme which honestly alot, that's about 3q if you consider donator scrolls selling for 20t a piece, which is super expensive for Extreme as they sell currently for 500-800t on the market and has been that way for a good few weeks i'd say.
Next up, 3750 scrolls to make an legendary ultimately, which works out at about 75q for a legendary again if you consider donor scrolls for 20t each, that makes for a very over expensive legendary scroll considering not maybe 2 weeks ago Uber Scrolls themselves would sell for 50-60q! Making it very very expensive!
Finally is the Uber scroll, it would now be 131,250 donator scrolls to make said item, again at 20t per scroll, that is a whopping 2,625 quintillion on the game, values that even the richest players basically don't have! And a value of donator scrolls i think the server probably hasn't even seen in total to this day?
These numbers are at best, unreachable and extremely unrealistic in terms of the servers very new basis and limited player-base in regards to these items being farmed enough to reach these numbers, but the price in general, most would sooner sell there scrolls, than pay the prices shown to make the scrolls, meaning the scrolls would flood the market, ultimately lose value and scrolls other than legendary/uber go down a very large amount!
The counter claim i have is simply this, make the values so that the price is maybe 10-20% above current market prices, this initially would be more expensive to make the scrolls, but would stabilise the prices of scrolls when they sink into the game, and create a nice economy for farming them, both new and veteran players would have ways to profit from this and get there 2 cents!
This is roughly the values you need to make this happen:
5 Regular scrolls = 1 Super (5 reg scrolls)
10 Super scrolls = 1 Extreme (50 reg scrolls)
15 Extreme scrolls = 1 Legendary (750 reg scrolls)
15 Legendary = 1 Uber (11,250 reg scrolls)
Now people may argue and say the end number is still maybe a tad unrealistic, but its more than 10x less than previous 131k, it will still help to sink items from the economy and bring stability to prices, and would rise the prices of certain scrolls to meet the donation prices more accurately.
This is because supers sell for 80t sometimes atm, 5 regs is 100t, so the price would rise for supers.
10 supers would then be 100t, extreme are 500-800t, price would rise to 1q or more each!
Extremes being 1q or so each, having 15 make a legendary would make sure legendary is a minimum of 15q on the market, up to maybe 20q even.
15 legendary being 15-20q, would make uber 225-300q on market, bring it more to spec of the new cost on donation for the uber scroll!
Please reply/support if anyone does agree with this, and thanks for reading!!
