imperial alchemy fail?

5 posts in this topic

Posted

Alright so Im artisan alchemist, i farmed lets say half of the ingredients to make the 525k for artisan alchemy, it asks for 25 Elixir of Carnage, and they sell for 35k on my server and the npc buys them for 525k so if i sold them on market i woulda get 875k and to npc its 525, can someone explain me the logic behind this? because i dont get it, Im pretty sure if i sum up all the materials to make a elixir of carnage i would actually be getting more money just by selling the mats..

edit: made some quick math if i sell oil of corruption id make millions instead of wasting them on the elixir of carnage...wtf

 

any help is appreciated thx

I consider Imperial Alchemy more as a tool for grinding exp and contribution than a way to make money.

 

The higher tier elixirs give a massive amount more exp per craft than the more basic stuff, imperial alchemy allows you to craft and dump them in massive quantities.

You only end up with a small profit per elixir but your selling them by the 1000's.

You also are generating lots of extra turn in items from all the additional crafting required for these elixirs.

 

35k is only 22,750 after tax for those without a value pack compared to 21k from the imperial box which give you an instant return on your money.

Make sure to factor in the procs and multiple returns you may get. :) Some of the elixirs are really lame to make with what ingredients they ask for though.

Check mats for each of them and see which one you can make a profit with, without having to compete with thousands of them on market and counting the cut you get even if you do sell them in some reasonable time. Not all of them are profitable. Be smart.

Point is, the market will NOT and is NOT able to digest that VOLUME of trade. Usually, people buy stuff that are useful to them, mostly combat-related like +AP,+crit,+att speed and most important +EXP. It is often that the imperial items are useless or at least NOT popular unlike Balenos Special or Milk Tea or Experience Elixir.
