Was it a luck epic? Those give you nothing.

Yes, it was. But still sucks because it's epic.

Something is really wrong with the prices. I tried to sum up what it would take me to upgrade my epics. Here are the rough results per item (I am level 411):

Level 1: 4000 / 0
Level 2: 5500 / 26
Level 3: 7500 / 2250
Level 4: 9200 / 4600
Level 5: 11100 / 7100

TOTAL : 37300 / 14000

So to upgrade all my (10) epics to level 5, I would need roughly 370K iron + 140K crystals. I am more than happy to pay the iron price. But those crystals will take me 3 months to collect. The thing is, I update my epics every 3-4 months. I guess most shroomers update their inventory at least 2-3 times a year. So after 3 months I will have all my epics upgraded to level 5 and will have to choose between continuing upgrading them and starting from scratch with slightly better items that I could buy from the shop. Of course I will choose to keep my current items and keep improving them. This way you are stopping me from buying new epics (and lets face it, epic events are where most shrroomers spend their mushrooms). The end result is that people will spend less mushrooms and feel miserable because they can't upgrade their epics to level 10 in some reasonable time (less than a year).

What I think needs to be done is: increase the crystal income so that shroomers can upgrade all their epics to level 10 within 6 months. Thus they can buy new items, upgrade them and start collecting resources for the next 6-month cycle. Non shroomers should also be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel without waiting for years.

ps, And if I can collect the resources for levels 1-5 in 3 months, this certainly doesn't mean I can collect the resources for levels 6-10 in another 3 months. Just note the difference between upgrading your Fortress levels 1-10 and levels 11-20.

is 16182 crystals correct?

if it is real that would be a harsh increase in costs.

Thanks for the info, rvm1975! I can tell you what the bonus for the level 9 upgrade will be. The formula is fixed : 3% of your current stats (not the original stats). So it will be (571 +152) * 0.03 = 22.

Your info is quite valuable, but you should stop focusing on one item. My strategy is to upgrade all items equally. So for the price of 16K crystals instead of getting +22 x3 points, you can upgrade all of your other 8 items (if they are not upgraded) 3 times. So for the first 3 levels the bonuses will be 8 * (17 + 18 + 18) = 424 x3 points. You are just not supposed to reach level 10 upgrade so soon. If you do reach it with a single item, you will pay a heavy price.

Thanks for the advice. It is quite obvious and on my toon I got three 4x items and rest are 3x.

Shlanga is used for some kind of research and I am dedicated to make 10x item. Need 10k more for 9x

A month and a half into the Blacksmith update I have almost forgotten he exists.

I do dismantle items daily and there's a nice shroom socket option but in the end every once in a while I check if there's even any point in upgrading an item and spend some of the resources.

I really feel indifferent to all of this.
