mircea_popescu: 2. the problem with cons is that if you pop, you get loot, but if your output is < bundle bv, you get maculature.
mircea_popescu: (2.1. i have a shitload of processed maculature, ie lbn, which doesn't sell worth a crap ; and a bunch of high q dusts/mites i made this way)
mircea_popescu: ((2.1.1. maybe with mocky's bot being active the lbn stocks burn off and there's some demand, dunno.)))
mircea_popescu: 3. the bv of the bundle can be either book+ink or mites. these are two directly separable classes.
diana_coman: I suspect it will burn off, yes; fwiw even with those mini-runs I eat up a stack of lbn in < day
mircea_popescu: 4. should i have noob click or click myself ? what if higher level crafter has better chances at looting high end shit if he loots ?
diana_coman: I suspect you simply need to click it with noob
diana_coman: but better chances bla bla don't even come into play if you don't have enough input to even account for them
mircea_popescu: so in conclusion : a. waiting may be wise ; b. if mite % is < book+ink % then i want mites. if not maybe not, because i suspect it's better to do 10 clicks 10mn each than 1 100mn click ?
diana_coman: think of it: high crafter means ALSO high q and you are aiming for high end so ...
diana_coman: then I don't know, it might be feasible for you; with fox I can tell you that on a 1-2 clicks sort of thing chances are ~0; because she'll get out of it about a quarter of what she put in so ...
diana_coman: and since lower q harvestables are barely paid even 120%
mircea_popescu: well wtf can i tell you ; atm the problem is "here, take the risk of this 8 or even 9!!! figure click, and the result may well be a) 24% or so of what you put in and b) market valued ~120%, even if you paid 250% on the ingredients, and used the most expensive tool/bp in the game etc".
diana_coman: I am not at all that keen on tinies; sure, on the odd occasion they pop when overloaded but onth I'd much rather pop on a small
mircea_popescu: i think i lost like a billion and a half last month doing consen.
diana_coman: I honestly don't see the case for high q crafter click; the ~only "reason" is your repeatedly stated assertion that higher q crafter has better chances on high end stuff
diana_coman: which btw is unclear where it's coming from so it's kind of suspiciously "because I know something you don't "
diana_coman: and to wrap up earlier thread re better chances of highly skilled to hit high end stuff: do you mean that in the sense that high skill means better chances of higher multiplier i.e. get one time some 10000x of input?
lobbesbot: Logged on 2018-06-17 23:38:57: <mircea_popescu> ^that'll be the last batch for at least a while.
diana_coman: anyway, getting back to the dilemma re clicks, it would seem that noob can do 1-2 clicks with a lighter heart; highly skilled should better make sure they have enough stuff for a long run where "long" is up to one's luck pretty much
