A final column in the disassembly tables would simply take the computed cost of the component (second to last column) and divide it by the components per hour (current last column). This sortable column would then be a guide to how expensive an item is in terms of the components it produces over an hour. In a comparison of two items that have the same cost per component, players would prefer the item that produces more per hour, which the table provides fairly easily. But sometimes players will want fast and expensive components, and other times slower and less expensive. "Value of Time" provides this more specific index more clearly, and sorts in a much cleaner way. I definitely wasn't going to mess with the templates, since I don't know much at all about them, and couldn't find a clean way to even play with one in a sandbox, so I need some insight as to how hard it would be to add this new column.

Done! Let me know if you want tweaks made to it. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 15:15, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
Just saw the new column on the Precious Components calculator, and I'll be buying Diamond necklaces rather than taking the extra time of making Rings of Slaying myself! Excellent results, and a perfect example! Thank you! I'll let you know if I see any tweaks, but so far so good. THAT 1 CH00B (talk) 15:52, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

Closed - This has been implemented so this thread is now moot. ɳex undique 18:24, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

Addendum - Following the suggestions of some users in discord, I've adjusted the calculation to give an efficiency ratio using your own time value, per efficiency, rather than this calculation. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 23:32, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
