Post - NCB BA costs (in General)


QBBarzooMonkey September 16 2006 2:04 PM EDT

A question for you NCB vets - does your BA cost go back down to a "reasonable" (not $910 per BA) level as soon as your NCB ends? And at what point does it cap?

More than .5 mil a day in BA costs will get really hard to maintain after a while...

TIA! :)

Yes it returns to normal after the NCB is up. It doesn't cap, it is always your bonus % times the normal BA cost for your VPR.

buying BA gets close to 3/4 of a mil a day towards the high levels, Jayuu, Mikel and a few others would be able to the most exact figures.

I'd like to know what the post-NUB free BA quota will be like? 7 every 10 minutes?

Also, what's the amount of BA one can purchase in the post-NUB phase? At present I can buy 576 BA max daily.

BA buy ammounts and regen rate only depend on time been playing. Check Help! to find out.

BA allocation is based on char size, so you get to 7/10 at the same with out without bonuses. Char size is also the factor in how much BA you can buy.

It might just be doing it's job oddly enough, it's got to be close to replicating the amount the January first aught five folks have spent.

Darn.

roughly half way up the MPR ranks it goes to 7 per 1- minutes. So the average NUB should finish around there.

Halfway? I'm still at 8.......

When you are below about 2.5% of the top VPR, you gain 10 BA per 10 minutes.
When you are between about 2.5% and about 15% of the top VPR, you gain 9 BA per 10 minutes.
When you are between about 15% and 45% of the top VPR, you gain 8 BA per 10 minutes.
When you are above 45% of the top VPR, you gain 7 BA per 10 minutes.

Found in the Help! section under Battle Allocation

if I'm not mistake it's 60% of the top MPR

Whatever is in the Wiki is correct, at least when I was working up, so about 4 mos ago? Ranger answered my question then and answered it now, so I think the value is the same....
