#chocolates that speed up bashing (not mint, for example) = b (for buffs)
cost of chocolates (low and high) = c (for cost - 3cr low, 5cr high)
duration of chocolates buff = d (8 hours)
(b*c)/d = cost of chocolates (x)
Pad x with some profit amount - ideally if you pay 5cr you should pull a thin profit, if you get them on sale at 3cr (almost 50% off) you pull some decent profit. Call the offset for profit y.
x+y = z, which is how much per hour you should make with chocolates.
Next, calculate how much those chocolates help you kill things faster- I'd say this is the tricky/finnicky part because yeah tankiness and dps and all that are going to vary wildly. Eyeball it, don't get too caught up on the details. That's going to be p (for percent).
So your percentage speed-up p correlates with income goal z - z is a percentage of g (goal), which is how much gold you make on a normal run. If chocolates speed you up by 100%, z = g. If chocolates speed you up by 50%, then z is half of g. If chocolates cost you 3k to fully buff and we pad with profit to 5k, and speed you up by 100%, bashing on its own should net you 5k/hr, because when you chocolate up you double that and reach 10k, which gives you the desired profit margin.
If chocolates cost you a more realistic 10k gold to buff, and chocolates boost your bashing speed by 25%, then 40k/hr is fair for base bashing.
Are you still trying to answer my question there? Chocolates would be something above and beyond standard bashing costs, is there and area that is considered impossible to survive bashing without them?I agree that chocolates aren't worth the current cost/value if you're purchasing them to increase your gold payout while bashing, but that is a separate point from the question I am attempting to ask. Are you trying to say "5k profit" is still what you consider fun or reasonable profit in 30 minutes, or a different amount?
