Price check? (in General)

So I didn't get quite as far with my NUB as is optimal. I also don't really want to sink a bunch of CBD into BA for an NCB, so I thought I'd see how far buying a character would get me. I don't think I can get much,if any farther with a NCB w/o buying BA so...

Is there a rough estimate for CBD to MPR ratio?

I'm not really in need of a character at the moment, just putting feelers out there to estimate the cost. If it matters, I'd like to take the same strategy as I already have; 4 minions.

Enlisting another Minion

When enlisting another minion you get the choice between 2 prices (except when you have a base character)

* Choosing the top option, the most expensive one, the new minion will get 1 experience for every $3 you pay.
* Choosing the bottom option, the less expensive one, the new minion will get 1 experience for every $5 you pay.

1) Convert your current MPR to xp using EXP = MPR*(1.4307*(MPR^0.2501))

2) Add expected xp gain to the EXP yielded above.

3) Convert the new xp total to MPR using MPR= (xp/1.4307)^(1/1.2501)

I got this from the Wiki, not sure how accurate it really is

There's no fixed CBD:MPR ratio really...
I bought koy at 12m if that helps.

I believe a 4.6 mil mpr single minion went for 31 mil + xfers recently.

You can probably get one for 5-10 mill around 3.5-4.5 MPR.

Correct, that's what Priestess of the Moon went for. Worth every dime, I'd have spent a ton more on NCB BA to achieve less.

The only real problem with straight buying a character would be equipping it. Tanks and tattoos are kind of expensive up high...

I've seen several 4.5m mpr characters go for sale, does anyone ever sell a 5m+? a 6m+?

Ask Sutekh if he still wants Hubbell. You'll have to use the email function.
