EuedeAdodooedoe Posted March 1, 2017 Share Posted March 1, 2017 So, while it's still seemingly not worth the trouble, I thought I'd do some math for those who do want them sweet crowns for good, fancy head gear. The math is actually a bit convoluted... If you start with "n" amount of thulecite, then the math per time you use up a construction amulet would go about like this: n - 2 (this is where you craft a construction amulet, which takes away 2 of your existing thulecite), n - 5 (this is where you craft a thulecite suit and a deconstruction staff, both using the amulet, which results in loss of 40% from the construction amulet, aka 0.4 green gems), n + 1 (this is where you first deconstruct a thulecite suit, gaining +6 thulecite, in total equating to 1 more than you had before. The following is just a continued process of constructing and deconstructing thulecite suits via construction amulets and deconstruction staff respectively, until...), n - 2, n + 4, n + 1, n + 7, n + 4, n + 10 (construction amulet breaks, deconstruction staff stays at 20%. Total green gems used up for this process = 1.8, which gives 10 thulecite more than you had initially, aka n + 10). Now, the question I brought up to myself is whether it's worth/more efficient to use a construction amulet in order to craft thulecite crowns. To determine this, I needed to find out the total amount of green gems used in order to create a certain amount of thulecite crowns. 10 thulecite normally equates to 2.5 thulecite crowns. With a construction amulet, with its thulecite included, you could craft 4 crowns for an extra 0.8 green gems used up. So, it's 2.5 crowns for 1.8 green gems, or, 4 crowns for 2.6 green gems... Seems like both are pretty close, if not the same, right? Well, lets try and get the crown amount to be the same for both equations in order to determine how much of them each use up the green gems for the same amount if thulecite crowns as each other. Lets scale the numbers up a bit first though by like, say, 10 times, so we get 25 crowns for 18 gems and 40 crowns for 26 gems. Then lets divide the crowns' amount to equate the same amount, so 25/5 = 5, 40/8 = 5. The same must then be applied for their respective gem amount and with that we will get an answer for this question: 18/5 = 3.6 26/8 = 3.25 Well then... If my math is correct, then it is slightly more efficient to use construction amulets for crafting thulecite crowns. Hope this is useful for somebody out there when crafting those sweet sweet crowns, in case you've been crafting them without an amulet this entire time ^^ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
