Magic is 1 of the 7 methods of progression in the game. It is to be unlocked (when?).

1

Magic has two tabs: Astronomy and Spell Book.

Upgrade Shards or Chances? Online calculator, v.2.1[1][1]

Some thoughts about calculations (time when upgrade will pay off): Magic/calculations.

Astronomy Edit

At Astronomy you find mages. They can create either "shard fragments", "complete shards", "ancient shards" or something else.

There are four basic shards types. That is: air, water, fire and earth.

By default you have one mage. He produces 50 shards per hour with 1% chance of getting two shards of any type.

Moreover, you can hire more mages. There are four types of mages who produce a specific type of shards. That is: air, water, fire and earth.

Shards are used to craft casts. Casts are the special ability which is to be learnt at Inscription.

Non-confirmed: higher mages produce more complete shards.

Confirmed: complete and ancient shards are used in "balls", "storm" and "strike" (confirmed eample: "Elemental shield").

Costs of mages Edit

Main mage: cost of upgrading Edit

The formula of Shards Per Hour and % Chance To Get 2x Shards: Calculator(thx icyphoenix). So we don't need now those tables; only hiring mage costs.

As previously mentioned, the Main mage can be upgraded. Then all hired get its bonus after fired and re-hired.

Then the cost of hired will increase.

There is a feature that bonus is floored to integer (i.e. 50 and 51 shards per hour give both 25 shards per hour to a hired mage).

Here is some figures what are the costs of upgrading + the cost of hiring. (We need a formula that shows the changing cost of hiring mages)

Hired mages: cost of hiring Edit

Moreover, there is a need of some statistics on the inceasing cost of hiring. To get a formula. 50/1 cost:653

51/1 cost: 656

51/2 cost: 659

52/2 cost: 662

53/2 cost: 665

54/2 cost: 668

54/3 cost: 672

54/4 cost: 675 

55/4 cost: 678

....

54 shards + 3% chance = 672 cost of hiring

55 shards + 5% chance = 682 cost of hiring

56 shards + 5% chance = 685 cost of hiring

58 shards + 5% chance = 691 cost of hiring

58 shards + 6% chance = 695 cost of hiring

62 shards + 6% chance = 708 cost of hiring

64 shards + 10% chance = 730 cost of hiring

66 shards + 6% chance = 722 cost of hiring

66 shards + 7% chance = 726 cost of hiring

66 shards + 8% chance = 730 cost of hiring

67 shards + 10% chance = 741 cost of hiring

67 shards + 11% chance = 745 cost of hiring

74 shards + 10% chance = 766 cost of hiring

74 shards + 11% chance = 771 cost of hiring

74 shards + 12% chance = 775 cost of hiring

75 shards + 12% chance = 779 cost of hiring

76 shards + 12% chance = 783 cost of hiring

76 / 13 = 787

76 / 14 = 792

77 / 14 = 796

78 shards + 14% chance = 800 cost of hiring

78 / 15 = 804

78 / 16 = 809

79 / 16 = 813

80 / 16 = 817

76 shards + 15% chance = 801 cost of hiring

77 shards + 16% chance = 895 cost of hiring

78 shards + 17% chance = 814 cost of hiring

78 shards + 18% chance = 818 cost of hiring

90 shards + 15% chance = 851 cost of hiring

90 shards + 16% chance = 856 cost of hiring

96 shards + 22% chance = 915 cost of hiring

Non-confirmed:

+1% chance ron average increases costs +4.

+1 shard on average increases +3.

But in fact it goes from +3 to +4 and so on. So it must be a percentage increase, not absolute numbers. So higher levels will give a quicker cost increase.
