Jupiter Mining Corporation is back. Let me know what you need forged. I'll be switching to an econ clan by then and should be able to crank out some decent results.

Also, I know every little about econ clanning, but have no qualms about joining up on the econ side (my singleton nature only applies to standard clans). So, if you don't mind taking an econ clan newbie under your wing, I'd love to clan up!

Let me know...

and I had eyes on the top forging spot now that Ranger isn't a NUB anymore. /sigh .... ah well... i'll still make top 3... :)...

QBsutekh137 April 18 2007 11:58 AM EDT

Wasp, I CM'd OB, since he had asked me before about forging and such, so your clan has the inside track. *smile* I need to figure out what I want to do for sure and will be getting back to people today...

Thanks for the offers and comments! Viva la forge!

Sut, I have tons of stuff that could use a forge job...

QBsutekh137 April 18 2007 12:36 PM EDT

What rate do people forge at these days? NS, I will let you drive that -- I trust you to give a fair price. *smile* Bring it on! I gotta go dust off my forge-performance spreadsheet and get it onto Google Docs! ROCK!

AdminNightStrike April 18 2007 12:59 PM EDT

Sure... rates are typically around 30% of the NW difference..................................... *ahem*............

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] April 18 2007 12:59 PM EDT

Im almost sacred to see what Sut can put out in 24 hours...

QBsutekh137 April 18 2007 1:31 PM EDT

NS, yeah right... *smile* I'll take 70% or thereabouts...

By the way, is anyone working on forge formulae optimization? I used the CG formula from the Wiki, and 85,15 appears to work every bit as well as 85,16, with one less BA to use. Are there better formulae somewhere else?

Both 85,16 and 85,15 follow the 2,1,5,2 factors, so they are both sweet. The less BA usage means the 85.15 formula yields around $499 per BA while 85,16 yields $497 (and I think the 85,16 trials had a better run of luck -- I only do five cycles per formula to test which is better...

QBsutekh137 April 18 2007 3:24 PM EDT

Yeah, I'm pretty sure 85,15 works on a CG just as well with one fewer BA used.

You can check out my forging results (I do a spreadsheet for each item I forge):

CG Forge Results

I am not sure about the "Luck" thing...seems kind of circular, but at least it normalizes NW gained a bit so one knows an average to expect per cycle...

[RX3]Cotillion April 18 2007 3:32 PM EDT

Wow... LoL...you have a lot of time on ur hands... This is what my forging sheets look like, half completed because I got tired of doing it. Laugh all you want

QBsutekh137 April 18 2007 3:43 PM EDT

I didn't laugh... I shoved a sock in my mouth, so that just about stopped it. *smile*

I don't have a lot of time, that spreadsheet was from my CB1 forging days. Oh yes, the forge is not new to me! *smile* My sheet helps refine recipes to optimal "sweetness", and gives factors to be able to tell which items yield better forge gains. I'd be happy to send you a copy if you wish.

[RX3]Cotillion April 18 2007 4:11 PM EDT

Hmmm...Sure i'll take and bookmark your spreadsheet. I take jobs based on 1st come 1st server basically.

Lumpy Koala April 19 2007 4:53 AM EDT

You can join my clan, mine is free for all :P And you don't really need to forge in my clan hehehe, my reason of having an econ clan in the first place is because I want the cheaper transfer fee. And the new forging bonus is really a bonus :)

[T]Vestax April 19 2007 5:03 AM EDT

Half the members of Soup Ream are my former clanmates! Now it really makes me wonder what happened after I left.

QBsutekh137 April 19 2007 9:58 AM EDT

TheWyldeOne has asked to have his AGs forged after my week on NightStrike CG, for the record. We'll see if I can optimize that formula too. *smirk*

AdminNightStrike April 19 2007 2:12 PM EDT

Don't forget to update the wiki...

QBsutekh137 April 19 2007 3:25 PM EDT

Good point, sorry, duh... I made changes to forge page and Combat Gi page itself.
