Overview

Composing is an upcoming game feature which allows players to sacrifice unneeded drops and turn them into custom potions. The concept of composing was first introduced in the game forum in 2012, and part 1 of the feature was introduced in summer of 2103, with part 2 expected to be released in early fall of that year.

When a player composes a potion, he must select to make it either bound or guild-bound. Bound potions act like any other bound item in the game, and cannot be given away to any other player. They are intended for the player's personal use only. Guild-bound potions are able to be given to other players in your own guild, or left in the guild store for other players' use. However, no composed potion may be sold or given away to someone outside of your guild.

Breaking down items

Some Items can be broken down to convert them into fragments. Fragmentable items:

  • must not be bound (that is, they must be tradable). Quest Items and other bound items may not be broken down.
  • must be of one of the nine types of items that can be worn as gear: Helmets, Shields, Swords, Armor, Runes, Rings, Amulets, Boots, or Gloves. Potions, resources, bottles, and items of any other type may not be broken down.
  • must not be of epic rarity.
  • must be dropped by creatures in PvE. Items sold in stores may not be broken down.

Types of Fragments

Depending on their rarity of the item broken down, you'll get fragments of the corresponding type:

  • Common items will yield one or more 0.gif Common Fragments
  • Rare items will yield one or more 1.gif Rare Fragments
  • Unique items will yield one or more 2.gif Unique Fragments
  • Legendary items will yield one or more 3.gif Legendary Fragments
  • Crystalline items will yield one or more 5.gif Crystalline Fragments
  • Super-Elite items will yield one or more 4.gif Super-Elite Fragments

Number of Fragments per item

The number of fragments you will receive for a given item is based on the item's level, and is calculated with the following formula:

Fragments = RoundUp(SquareRoot(ItemLevel / 100))

Item level: 1-100 101-400 401-900 901-1600 1601-2500
Fragment(s): 1 2 3 4 5

In addition, items which have been hellforged produce one additional fragment (of the appropriate type) per level of hellforging. Thus a unique, level 450 helm with 3 level of hellforging will produce 6 fragments (3 because of its level and an additional 3 because of the hellforging).

Fragments do not require backpack space. They are simply listed on the player's "Composing" page until used.

NOTE: If you are looking for common fragments in the 401 - 900 range, the lowest level creature to drop common items in this range is the level 433 Gobbler.

Composing Potions

Note: The information in this section is based on the most recent proposal in the game forum (Revision 1.2, which can be viewed here: http://forums.huntedcow.com/index.php?showtopic=56864), and is subject to change, possibly major change, before it actually is introduced within the game.

The number and type of fragments (and the amount of gold) required to compose a given potion depend on:

  • The number of skills included in the potion
  • The level of each skill included
  • The desired duration of the potion

Fragment Cost per Potion

For each skill added the Fragment cost is as follows:

0.05 Common Fragments per skill level 0.05 Rare Fragments per skill level above 50 0.05 Unique Fragments per skill level above 125 0.02 Legendary Fragments per skill level above 175 0.02 Crystalline Fragments per skill level above 250 0.02 Super Elite Fragments per skill level above 300

The number of Fragments per skill is rounded up for each type of fragment.

Gold Cost Per Potion

The gold required to compose a potion is dependent of the potion duration and total skill level in the potion.

Instant Completion Cost

Instant completion cost = round up((1 - (percentage completed / 100)) * initial gold cost * (2 ^ instant completes in last 24 Hours))

Composing Time Per Potion

The time required to compose a potion is dependent of your composing level, potion duration and total skill level in the potion.

Composing XP/Levels

As a bonus, in addition to being able to create potions with new skills and higher levels at each level, for every ten (10) levels you get to create an additional potion. For example, at level 10 you can create 2 potions at the same time and at level 20 you can create 3.

Level Table

Players initially start at Composing Level 1 and gain Composing XP for each potion created.

formula XP Required for LVL = ((LVL-1)^2) * 250

Experience Formula

  • if potion duration > total skill points

XP = round up [(total skill points / 60) + (total skill points / 500)] * 10;

  • else

XP = round up [(potion duration / 60) + (total skill points / 500)] * 10;

You can use the online calulator of drugie to calulate the XP: http://zt.sparkonline.net/composing/calculator.php
