Parallel Kingdom Upgrade Costs for New Weapons



Parallel Kingdom Upgrade Costs for New Weapons by jaysn

I upgraded my first new weapon today, and wrote down the costs as I did so. The weapon was created with metal, and had a gem added at level 1. It was upgraded at 1%.

Lv…Cost………..Total Cost
+2….250…………….250
+3….501…………….751
+4….876…………….1,627
+5….1,628…………..3,255
+6….3,130…………..6,385
+7….3,756 ………….10,141
+8….4,382………….14,523
+9….5,259………….19,782
+10…6,260………….26,042
+11…7,387………….33,429
+12…8,639………….42,068
+13…10,017…………52,085
+14…11,519…………63,604
+15…13,147…………76,751
+16…14,900…………91,651
+17…16,778…………108,429
+18…18,781…………127,210
+19…20,910…………148,120
+20…23,164…………171,284
+21…29,424…………200,708
+22…48,205…………248,913
+23…104,549………..353,462
+24…273,580………..627,042
+25…780,674………..1,407,716
+26…2,301,955……..3,709,670

The total cost for a capped, gemmed, and infused item is 3,709,670 gold. I’ll also double check creating an item from metal with the gem at creation time to make sure it’s the same.

Here are costs for a single infused item:

Level |Upgrade Cost |Total Cost |+ Gem |Total + Gem |Extra vs double infusion
+1…..100…………….100……….35……….135……………..
+2…..200…………….300……….105………405…………….155
+3…..401…………….701……….245………946…………….350
+4…..701…………….1,402……..490………1,892…………..615

Upgrade Price For Weapons and Armor by Drooooo


Didn’t see this posted anywhere else – hope it helps…

Here’s the weapon upgrading costs I experienced under the new(v2.1) pricing structure.

This was done with an axe, but it seems that each weapon and armor type currently follows the same pricing scheme. (anyone have evidence to the contrary?)

Also, keep in mind that you can get almost a 25% discount for each upgrade based on the wear of the weapon – I suggest:
Knocking the item down to 1% or so*
Unequipping
Upgrading
and then using resin

(this makes a +20 cost around 105k instead of 137k!) Some brave souls have even gone down to 0%!!!*

Upgrading to level 1 costs ~75-100. Total investment: ~75-100
Upgrading to level 2 costs ~150-200. Total investment: ~230-300
Upgrading to level 3 costs ~300-400. Total investment: ~530-700
Upgrading to level 4 costs ~530-700. Total investment: ~1050-1400

Upgrading to level 25 costs ~464460-616900. Total investment:
~841740-1118000

Good luck, happy hunting, and yes, I too spent some serious cash on upgrades prior to the new system, so let’s just forgo any more complaining! (It’ll probably all change at some point in the future again anyway!)

*It also appears that it takes ~6 uses (hits) to drop a level 1%, and since you can get a discount of up to 25% that means that every 4% drop in weapon status is a 1% drop in upgrade cost, or each hit saves you about 1/24th of a %
Which means that:
For level 21, every extra hit you take saves you about 10 pieces of gold on upgrading, and
For level 25, every extra hit you take saves you about 400 pieces of gold on upgrading.

Thanks to all for helping with the refinement of the numbers, and especially Dolio, who has some extra tidbits about dumpability and monster levels listed in the next post.

  1. Info is a bit old now, but still a fair guide. the % of a weapon no longer affects cost and 23 and up is now broken down into smaller chunks (23.2, 23.5, etc)
