Forging (in General)

I'm not quite sure how using a character with a high MPR to forge is better than say one with 1 MPR. The larger character gets a bonus, but the smaller gets more regenerated BA and the purchasable BA costs next to nothing. I guess I just want someone to explain to me why a larger character is better and by how much.

difference between a 1 MPR character and a say, 2 mil , higher MPR character is the amount of NW you can forge per BA used.

for that 1 MPR character, that NW/BA is next to nothing while for the high MPR character that could be multitudes (around $1.000 or so I guess)

And since the amount of NW you forge is always lower than the amount it costs to buy a BA, using a very low MPR character to forge will never earn you any profit.

OK, thanks for clearing that up.

The NW forged per ba is not always less than what it costs to buy ba but the amount of money you will make from it is. That is what the forging efficiency is based on. How much NW forged compared with the price of the ba.

^ To put what Nem said in simpler terms, the more BA costs, the better forging is.

but the forging efficiency is based on the items when comparing them. So forging the same item on a lower MPR char still does the same.

but that's besides the point, Nem is right :)
