Another guild member said he put a bow that gave metal and 400 crystals, but after he put it through the toilet, it turned into a club and now only gives 90 crystals.

My thinking is, maybe warriors should put their items through the toilet FIRST, and then dismantle them and it will give MORE crystals because it will turn into a mage or scout item.

We can put more than one item in the toilet each day; we only get aura for the first item.

I don't play a warrior character on any server, so I can't test this, but it seems to be a sound theory.
Yeah it will give you a chance but not always as I did test it out.

I had a few people tell me that it worked about 50% of the time.

What do you guys think about costs of upgrades?

They seem pretty high overall. I am not sure if it will be worth to upgrade an item ten times.

And also over 20k crystals for a socket is waaaay too much. That's like a month of dismantles.

I am a mage on one server and a scout on the other two.

The mage costs jump from 48 crystals at a 2X upgrade to 2052 for 3X upgrade. I can't even begin to wonder what a 4X upgrade would be. On the other hand, upgrade costs for gold are 10 mill each. I am getting 20 points of improvement per stat. On a 3-item epic, 60 points total. That's 600 million gold.

Scout upgrades cost less, I've noticed, by a significant amount. 500-600 crystals less, and metal seems to be maybe a little less, or maybe the same.

I don't play warrior, but from asking around, those costs are even less. There I understand though, because the warriors have another item to upgrade.

As for the gem slot, I don't have a problem with that. As I explained to someone else, at high levels, we are not getting very many epics, even if you DO shroom the shops on epic weekend. So you have an epic you stuck with for a while, you upgrade it slowly, and you end up with it 200 points higher than anything you'd get out of a shop, quest, or toilet. The only thing it is missing is the gem slot.

You are going to have something better than you have gotten, and that you are likely to get for a while. You add that gem slot to the 200 bonus from upgrading, have a 527 gem - that's 727 extra points.

I think the trade off in that case is worth it, but I've not tried to get 20K crystals yet either

My thought also is that some upgrades costs are too high in relation to amount of mats we can get.

What I would like to see is amount of mats that item gives when I hover them. So I know what item to buy in relation on what mat I need more.

25 shrooms for a gem slot isn't awful.

It's actually less than I thought it would be.

I love the chance at double resources. That's a nice twist!

Well, that's the point. Why would I spend money on mushrooms otherwise? I've been a non shroomer for quite a long time and I know 25 mushrooms is not such a high price. Instead of buying a griffin every couple of weeks, you can add a gem slot.

I know Playa is still tweaking things, and I'm all for that.

I play mage, scout, scout.

My mage is still getting decent crystals on 99% of the items I come across. 200 - 250.

Yesterday, on my two scout servers, I was getting like 24 crystals on every item. The only one I didn't get it on was a follower epic that was replaced.

Did my scouts get kicked in the shins or did I just have a really bad item day?
