Mystery shop analyis

I collected some data about Wartune's new Mystery Shop, and I was thinking what is the best buy strategy. I will share what I found, feel free to comment! 

The first thing is, you shouldn't spend real balen in this shop, use only bound balens. Let's hope you stacked up a few tens of thousands from dimensions, because it seems you are not getting more. The bound balen producing dimension mines are seemingly non-existent.



Here is the list of useful items so far:
You can buy the same item for different prices: pure balen (or bound balen), bb + kyanite or daru, and bb + mystery stones.
The item is always the cheapest in bb terms when you use mystery stones, and its always the most expensive when you dont spend an additional resource.

As you see, all gems (divinity souls, eudaemon diamonds, normal gems, and resist crystals) can be purchased. Will crystals seem to be more rare than the others, but the rest is pretty common. 

What catched my eye that whoever made these prices, was not aware that Wartune has regular gem events, where you can create higher level gems and get extra gems. As you see, a lvl 2 eudaemon diamond costs 20 bb and 1 mystery stone, while a lvl 3 cost 90 bb and 4 mystery stone. However, when you combine 4 lvl 2 eudaemon diamonds (during an unlimited event), you get an extra lvl 3. So effectively, if they sell a lvl 2 for 20 bb, a lvl 3 should cost max 40 bb. (but 2 lvl 2 is still better because if you combine them during an event, you will get chests).
The same is true for everything: the higher level a gem, the more expensive. So in general, you should buy only the lowest level gems (I marked them with dark green). Since there is no reward for making lvl 2 divinity soul or lvl 2 resist crystal, in those categories the lvl 3 is a good buy as well.

Please note that I recommend buying even the lvl 5 will crystal. Although in general will crystals are much more expensive than resist crystal, here you can buy them cheaper. Additionally, will crystals are more rare. So I think it's okay to buy even higher level will crystals if you can afford.

About the miscellaneous items: so far I found 2 which I find exceptionally great deal, marked them bright green. These are beads of influence and vulcan hammer. These are "must buy" items.
Eternal heart is good too, especially since its less common now in dimensions (although you can find it still). The gift of god I find overpriced. Mahra, mount whip and mystery stones are useful items, but you can find them in large quantities for free, I wouldn't waste bound balen on them.

Please note also something very important: you are limited to 3 buys per day! For this reason, I recommend buying dark green items only if you have at least 1 purchase attempts remaining afterwards, or if this is the last shop refresh before you log out - to make sure you can also buy the top items if they come up.

I'm pretty sure that even if you buy only dark green items, you will buy the 3 items most days (if you check the shop every 4 hours), So you will spend about 200-300 bound balens, and about 10 mystery stones each day. If you have 20k bound balens like me, this will be enough for 2-3 months for sure. If you have a LOT more, like 50-100k, you might consider buying lvl 4 gems too, but don't forget, those will be suboptimal purchases.

Lastly, I would like to mention that there are other items in the shop, but they are really, completely utter junk. Here is the list of them. The sylphs could be useful to some beginner players - if they weren't so expensive.

There are really a lot of items, so I'm sure my list is not complete. I didn't see empire truncheon for example, but I hope it exists :)

Mystery shop would be an okay change after wild shop - if they didn't remove bound balens from dimensions.

*** UPDATE 03/08 ***

I updated the above tables. Advanced mahra and sepulcrum is highly recommended items too. I moved vulcan stove from junk to recommended for the following reason:
Now you can get vulcan's hammers 200-600 per week from Narrenda. And you get only 200-600 stoves, where you would need 600-1800. Yes you have some saved up from AB, but that will run out quick... You will need the stoves :)

  1. 400 balens for 90 stoves. 560 balens for 50 star sand. Any amount of balens, for fate/leg stones. Best laugh I've had in a while!

    1. Ah so prices higher in Russian version, sorry to hear :( the other prices are identical? I hope ours wont get nerfed... I remember buying good luck charm for 150 insignia in wild shop for a long time. Then one day it became 3000.... even the correction was incorrect, since it should have been 1500.

    2. Numbers are higher, real money is lower.
      The thing is, your 1000B is like $10. Our 1000B is like $1.81. So, your price for sixth shield of 1000B was a decent amount, ours price was still 1000B, but apparently is is not the same thing. I think it is an overlook, but not sure.

    4. No one else on our server could kill 2nd boss yet (as I know) so I guess its really hard. I don't remember doing anything special, I kept nuking and healing, and the boss died just before it could kill us... Of course I had 6 lvl 8 fire resist crystals equipped, but thats it, didnt even have fire dimension.Will try to pay more attention on Sunday when we do 2nd round.
      Third stage is a different story, spend 2 hours to figure out how to kill just the trash mobs :(

    5. Second boss is either fire or water. To keep from having to convert resist crystals, I keep a set of lvl 8 water crystals, fire, and wind. Dimensions also need to be fire and water. Resist minimum 1k. You dont need to kill fire and water boss at the same time like first set of boss. If you kill first,you just wait until the other team kill the other boss. If they can't kill, then you have to start over.

      I found that fire boss does a big attack every 4 attacks, so need to time guardian rune, knight's apolo shield accordingly. Heal up after. Need to focus on heavy attacks, group heal and defense. No need for puri or scatter. Guard in front to take chaos from fire.

      Third stage mob is hard to kill too. When you first kill, you are split up 1 per person. I don't even try to kill, I just die and then come back. If you die, come back and you can fight with your group. The four of us can kill mob.

      Third boss is wind. Need very high wind resist. I only killed this boss once. It seems like only 1 team needs to kill that boss.

  8. Lv2 will crystal for 40 BB

  9. Seems that the shop doesnt refresh itself and instead remains static til you manually refresh it (for free, as long as you wait 4 hours). So if two good deals come up but I only have one purchase attempt left, I can buy one, and leave the other til tomorrow. Goota say, as much as I'm still pissed that they nerfed bbs from dimensions, this shop is working out pretty well. Until I run out of bbs, of course :D

  12. 5000 balens for EITHER 50x"Gift of Gods" OR 50x"Blessing of Gods".
    I have only found them for Balens-only, so maybe they go cheaper

    I do not have much money, but if I could afford it I would buy the gifts...they are normally worth Much more than the blessings....no?
    Maybe a glitch or something?? But well, if the blessings are overpriced and the gifts are at its "normal" value, then buying these it is not worthwhile....!

    1. its still overpriced... imho they worth 10 balen each. recently they had big spender event, you got FREE 250 blessing and 150 gift for spending 10k. so yes 10 balen seems accurate. dont buy for 5k.
