Exception Craft Gem-up Formula/Table

Postby akerson » Wed Nov 30, 2016 7:57 am

Have you ever wondered how many gems it takes to upgrade an epic balmung to make sure you have enough on hand? No? Well I'm gonna tell you how to calculate it anyway! And then provide a lookup table just incase you wanna check stuff.

Calculating the gem upgrade cost is really simple. There's two components: the base gem cost (which is based on the price of the item) multiplied by the quality multiplier (so higher quality items take more to upgrade).

Step One: The base gem price:

Code: Select all

0           0
1           5
100         25
500         35
1000        60
5000        100
10000       150
50000       200
100000      300
1000000     1000
10000000    2500
100000000   5000

If your cost is between two values, then you linear interpolate between the two (calc here: http://www.ajdesigner.com/phpinterpolation/linear_interpolation_equation.php). So for example, if your item price is 3000 -- you are directly between 1000 and 5000 and thus you'd be the average of 100 and 60, or 80 gems.

Second take that number and multiply it by the following number. You are looking at the CURRENT quality, not the quality you're looking to upgrade to:

Code: Select all

Good       0.125
Great      0.2
Flawless   0.3
Epic       0.5
Legendary  1

So in my theoretical example of my 3000 price item, if I was looking to upgrade my good craft to great, it would cost me 80*0.125=10 gems. That's it! If you have a decimal (say 10.25 gems), just drop it -- the formula always rounds down.

To make it easier for everyone, here's a lookup sheet of items in alphabetical order. Enjoy everyone!!!

Upgraded Midas' Gloves to legendary yesterday and was so happy about that.
