Premium - PCALC (PPs) Update · on 12/9/2009 3:37:26 AM 64

Hello everyone,

The following changes were officially rolled in earlier this tonight for Premium Point costs in terms of PCALC:

Resistant Armor: Changed from flat 1500 surcharge to: (Sum of Resistance Bonuses (offset for penalties) / 10) * 1000

Enchanting defender items: Changed from Not Permitted to 2*bonus surcharge

No longer double counts attack scripts as flaring surcharge and scripted surcharge.

No longer charges for temporary enhancements.

Added 600 point surcharge for spiked items.

Added Permanent Enhancives according to the formula: (Adv Guild Cost to recharge * Item Enchant) / 250

For the perma enhancives, an example:

So, for example, a player kills a krolvin warfarer and finds a rapier with plus = 12, +2 Constitution Bonus, +3 Ambush Ranks.

Duane, the Adv. Guild rewards guy, will recharge the rapier for 12780 Bounty Points per 10 charges. If a player wants to get it enchanted to +17, then the cost would be:

(Final Enchant bonus * 100) -- Base enchanting cost to increase to +17 + (12780 * 17)/250 = 869 -- Enhancive item -- Total = 1700 + 869= 2569 Premium Points

Note that with quite a few of the formulas/points above (such as the spiking and the enchanting permanent enhancives), they have been in use for quite some time when such items were worked on/negotiated already, though never reflected in PCALC itself.

This update is reflected in Premium 9 but is not yet updated on the website. Please direct ALL questions or comments regarding this to the Benefits folder of the Four Winds category.

Subject: Re: EZ scripts using Sadie Scrolls

Original question by Rohese: I was hoping to add another EZscript to Roh's book using premium points. The original 3 were added by other means so this is the first time I will be using a Sadie Scroll on it. I was hoping to use the points on my second account and wondered if the point deduction as per Premium 9 [EZscript - 1200 (one action), 600 (second action, and all subsequent actions] related to the item itself or the account using the points i.e. if I were to add another script in the future using my first account instead, do I get charged the 1200 again or 600.

Thanks in advance!

According to PREMIUM 9 and the PTB, if it's the first EZscript your item is getting, it's 1200 points. If it's a subsequent action, it's 600 points. So, if your item already has a few EZscripts on it, an additional one would cost 600 points. And any others you added on after that would also be 600 points each.
