Warning: 2H Damage enchant cannot be used (activated) by Shadow Walkers since they do not get 2H weapons (Offhand Dagger does not count). Even though Shadow Walkers can enchant gear with 2H Damage enchant. Strongly recommended that Shadow Walkers *not* buy 2H Damage recipe or Transfer Plates. https://www.venan.com/boh_forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1932

Black Market sells Large Energy Potion for 6 Gold Shields which recovers 20 energy versus 18 energy using Gold Shields (Note 1, second post) or +11% energy. If you spend Gold Shields on energy, Large Energy Potions are a good deal.

If you spend Gold Shields in Captain Valor Raids, you might consider Tier 5 Gems from the Black Market. With a Gold Finish in Goblin King Raid, a Tier 5 Gem is 956 energy or 318 Gold Shields (Note 2, second post).

Black Market Transfer Plate Create (if creating)
64 Gold Shields Flux (8*8 Gold Shields, Black Market Prices)
85 Gold Shields Essence (17 *5 Gold Shields, Black Market Prices)
= 149 Gold Shields

Black Market Transfer Plate Disenchant (purchase and immediately Disenchant for Flux or Feat)
16 Gold Shields Flux (2*8 Gold Shields, Black Market Prices)
25 Gold Shields Essence (5*5 Gold Shields, Black Market Prices)
= loss of 108 Gold Shields, Black Market Prices.

50 Essence for 5 Gold Shields, Black Market Prices
8 Gold Shields, Black Market Prices, for 1 one specific color Flus

For Comparison
45 Essence per 5 Golds Shields or 9 Essence per Gold Shield average for Incursion Levels 1-4
Guesstimate:
4.2 Gold Shields / 1 Random Color Flux average for Incursion Levels 1-4
6.3 Gold Shields for 1 one specific color Flux for Incursion Level 1-4

Black Market appears for 12 hours at a time. Appears to only sell items for Gold Shields.

Research Note: appears to have an 84 hour cool down or 3.5 days. If this is accurate, Will always appear Sat 8 PM ST (3 PM EST) and Wed 8 AM ST (3 AM EST).

Equations and Notes

Postby Bj_Knows » Wed Feb 06, 2013 9:18 am

DRAFT
DRAFT
DRAFT

EQUATIONS:

Note 1)
12 energy / 4 Gold Shields = 3 energy per 1 Gold Shields.

Note 2)
Horde of the Goblin King [v1.5.1 2012-Jan-01 11:35 AM, n= 27 (>= 1225)/ 28 (total), Warriors of the SPOON ]
211,760 Raid RPP / 6,175 Barb
268 CV = 9,158 to 9,226 CV or approx 3.07 Tier 5 Gems
161 HT = 5,440 to 5,556 HT
1,975 Zeetha
Gold Finish
1,462.57 ww (Not Clean Report) use 1471 ww from Forums
3,000 CV / 9,226 CV * 1,471 ww * 2 energy = 956.64 energy per Tier 5 Gem or 318.88 Gold Shields per Tier 5 Gem

Data
Essence
1,061 Essence, 28 Random Color Flux, 118 ww in Max Incursion (Level 4)

1,061 Essence / 118 ww
* 1.5 ww / 1 Gold Shield
= 13.4873 Essence per Gold Shield Max Incursion

3+5+7+9 / 4= 6 Essence per 1 ww average for Levels 1-4
* 1.5 ww / 1 Gold Shield
= 9 Essence per Gold Shield average for Levels 1-4


Flux
118 ww / 28 Random Flux
* 1 Gold Shield / 1.5 ww
=2.8 Gold Shield per 1 Random Flux Max Incursion

Guesstimate Flux Rate
Guesstimate Assumption, Flux and Essence Ratios stay the same (not true in reality due to Vile Elite 100% Flux Drop)

if
Essence (Max Incursion) / Essence (average for Level 1-4)
= Flux (Max Incursion ) / Flux (average for Level 1-4)
and
Flux (Max Incursion) / Flux (average for Levels 1-4)
* 2.8 Gold Shields / 1 Random Flux (Max Incursion)
then
13.5 Essence (Max Incursion) / 9 Essence (average for Level 1-4)
* 2.8 Gold Shields / 1 Random Flux (Max Incursion)
=4.2 Gold Shields / 1 Random Color Flux

4.2 Gold Shields * 3 for all color Flux= 12.6 Gold Shields for 1 each color Flux
1 each color Flux + Transmute Recipe = 2 one specific color Flux
6.3 Gold Shields for 1 one specific color Flux

Data
2013-Feb-02, Sat, 3PM EST to 3 AM Sun
2013-Feb-06, Wed, 3 AM EST to 3 PM Wed

I was misled by the BM sale of Flux, and assumed that I'd get 5 Amber Flux for 8 gold. But I got only one, and the number 5 presumably indicated the total amount for sale. Just a warning to others...

Transfer Plate "Energy Regeneration Rank 3"

Postby Bj_Knows » Sat Feb 09, 2013 9:17 pm

Subject:
Transfer Plate "Energy Regeneration Rank 3"

Transfer Plate "Energy Regeneration Rank 3" should reduce the time to regenerate 2 energy by 7 seconds (293 instead of 300 seconds). If you use this in an Incursion Portal or Raid, and enter immediately when Incursion starts, it will let you get 2 extra energy. Thus it will take a combination of Incursions and Raids equal to 225 to pay for itself.

Research Note: Regenerating 24 energy will take 58 minutes and 36 seconds. Since Portals are open 60 minutes, this gives you 2 extra energy per portal versus 22 energy taking 55 minutes (normally, you can never get 24 energy in an Incursion Portal).

Every 3 hours and 35 minutes (86 Energy) you will earn a free 2 energy.

I thought the same thing when I first saw it in the store. Took a while to figure out the 8gs purchase was for just a single flux. I wonder how we can make this a little more clear. . . . . .

It does say "1 Amber Flux" as the description... We understand the confusion with the Large Energy Potion since it doesn't have a number on it, which we will address in the next update.
