Service[edit]

INFUZ-5959 [Merchant] was introduced in the patch notes as "A new vendor, INFUZ-5959, has been added to the Mistlock Observatory" and "Added an INFUZ-5959 infusion vendor". Has a new unique overhead+map icon that's a combination of agony and a stack of coins (merchant icon). Service is probably "Infusion vendor" (as per patch notes) or "Infusion merchant" (merchant because [Merchant]). --BryghtShadow (talk) 20:30, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

I've added both new icons File:Agony merchant icon.png, and File:Agony npc icon.png. Feel free to move/rename them as you wish. I can't remember exactly what they are for nor think of a way to properly name them. -Darqam (talk) 20:39, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

Cheaper?[edit]

It appears that using INFUS-5959 to buy your way up the agony ladder is slightly cheaper than crafting them. A +3 used to cost 4 +1s and 4.488s, but now it's just 4.480s (and 4 +1s). Am I correct?Daddicus (talk) 03:26, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

You are correct. It costs exactly Silver coin 48 Copper coin via golem. Reagents cost 14 Silver coin 96 Copper coin per 10, which is 1496/10*3 (448.8) copper. For the sake of rounding, it takes 3 to make a +3AR, so I'll buy 30 reagents to make 10 +3AR. That costs total of 44 Silver coin 80 Copper coin at INFUZ-5959, and total of 44 Silver coin 88 Copper coin via artificer. Edit: fixed typo.--BryghtShadow (talk) 03:54, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
The other bulk prices are cheaper than crafting. Even more if you upgrade it step by step (I think I did the math correctly?)
  • +3 AR = Silver coin 48 Copper coin vs Silver coin 49 Copper coin
  • +5 AR = 22 Silver coin 40 Copper coin vs 22 Silver coin 44 Copper coin
  • +7 AR = 94 Silver coin 8 Copper coin vs 94 Silver coin 25 Copper coin
  • +9 AR = Gold coin 80 Silver coin 80 Copper coin vs Gold coin 81 Silver coin 48 Copper coin
  • +11 AR = 15 Gold coin 27 Silver coin 68 Copper coin vs 15 Gold coin 30 Silver coin 41 Copper coin
Another thing to note is that... you're not buying any extra reagents that you don't need (so making a single +3 only costs Silver coin 48 Copper coin and 0 remaining reagents, rather than 14 Silver coin 96 Copper coin and 7 remaining reagents). On the other hand, you have to be careful that you only make the required amount, and time may be more valuable than gold so doing a direct +1 to +N conversion takes less time. --BryghtShadow (talk) 04:29, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
Good. I'm not going nuts. Thanks!Daddicus (talk) 19:47, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
