A lot of people have this ideology that 'infinite mana' is the freest thing in this game.
So lets do some math. Math is fun people! Especially for summoners that have nothing better to do with their life except watch the grass grow.
Level 69 Elemental Summoner (I know, I've been slacking)
Weapon: +9 Demon Staff
Pic includes self buffs / unicorn buffs.
Farming Location: Blazing Swamp
Party Style Orientation: Solo
Clarity: 1 spirit ore / 20 minutes
Spirit Sharing: 5 spirit ore / 20 minutes
Boxer Summon: 8 spirit ore / 2 minutes. (Yes, with clarity, my boxer runs oom in 2 minutes of me nuking)
Seraphim Summon: 1 spirit ore / 2 minutes
Heal Cubic: 10 spirit ore / 15 minutes. (Lets just say 20 minutes.)
Aqua Cubic: 5 spirit ore / 15 minutes. (Lets just say 20 minutes.)
BSSC: / nuke
Wind Walk Potion / 20 mins
Total Spirit Ore / 20mins: 1 + 5 + (8*10) + (1*10) + 10 + 5
= 111 spirit ore / 20 minutes
BSSC: ~105 adena each / nuke
Spirit Ore Cost: 480a
Healing Potion Cost: 396a / ~50x every 20 minutes
Windwalk Potion: 1440a / 20 minutes
1. How many level 35 nukes does it take on average to kill 1 mob at blazing swamp?
Lets say 10 on average.
2. How much exp does 1 mob give solo / 10% clan buff exp?
~40-75k (including overhits), so lets take an average of 50k
3. On average how much exp do I get in 20 minutes?
3kk exp / 20 minutes
50k exp average from mob
3kk/50k = ~60 mobs killed / 20 minutes
averages 10 nukes to kill 1 mob
600 * 105a bssc = 63,000a
4. Lets say an average of ~50 healing pots are used every 20 minutes
50 * 396a = 19,800a
Spirit Ore Cost= 53,280a
Spiritshot Cost = 63,000a
Wind walk potion = 1440a
Healing pot cost = 19,800a
Grand Total: 137,520 adena / 20 minutes of soloing with "infinite mana" Fun Facts:
I make around 30-50k adena / 20 minutes.
Glow wisps dont have drops, which make me really suffer.
I average ~1% every 20 minutes. It would cost me a grand total of:
13,752,000 adena for 1 level of consumables.
I am losing money with this build, unless I get REALLY lucky on drops.
I've actually gone broke 3x, and had to sell my alts gear for shots. RIP.
I've recently stopped using major heal pots, and switched to greater heal pots to save adena.
