Topic: Items and InventoryDate: 01/01/2018 08:26 PM CSTFrom: DRAFIXSubj: WPS cost calculations on new yearsSomething seems off and extremely expensive with the numbers being quoted for 5 services by Culd during new years for my 6x lirion bow.
>Culd whispers, “12,357,125 for 5 service points.”
[A wide-grained thick ruic long bow has a combat effectiveness rating of 2 points of Sighted weighting and a 50.0% chance to have a combat effectiveness rating of 3. It has 5 of 10 services towards the next full rank of combat effectiveness. It has been serviced 5 times in this service window, which resets in 59d 23h 59m.]
According to Tysong:
let’s say for max cost possiblity, it’s 6x (30 gear points), scripted (max 20 gear points), and if they count the flaring as separate surchage (7 gear points), total of 57 gear points. 57gp * 6500s per = 370,500. Additional 10% surcharge for crit weight/padding. Should of been 2,037,750 silvers.
12.35m for 5 services at a non linear rate, just to bring to heavy sighting would costs what? 30 billion silvers or something absurd like that? I thought this was meant to be accessible and cheap as long as you don’t do many services per 60 day window. If 12.35m for 5 services is cheap then what would be expensive?
Can these formulas be reviewed and confirmed that this is the way it is meant to be?
12.35m with no reason to justify other than “it’s great!!” .. ehh.. I also priced a 7x, HCP, fusion, t5 ensorcelled armor for about 2.2m. Which in my opinion is a pretty great item too but I don’t think it should be 12.35m great.
