Talk:Money making guide/Smithing Masterwork armour
Anyone have numbers on if the overheat mode for the autoheater is an increase of profit including the coal cost? It'll depend on firemaking levels (since it affects maximum heat).
I'm getting that the use of the overheat mode is a small increase over not, but only something like 1.5-2k gold increase per activation (without rapid perk). Anyone else?
Profit calculation is broken[edit source]
Somehow the profit calculation is showing 8.8mil an hour at time of writing (I saw it at a peak of 10 mil). However as I've been smithing masterwork over the last week, the average profit from 6 full sets is roughly 5.8 mil an hour. This is with tinker, rapid, blacksmith outfir, superheat form, powerbust of masterstroke, perfect juju smithing potion, and all the artisans boosts on W70. The problem in the calculation seems to be the output gross value calculation for 1 hour. It says 23m for the products after an hour, which is grossly inaccurate. Given 1 bar of masterwork takes 25 mins to smith, with 5 minutes for lining, riveting, etc, in 1 hour you can smith 2 glorious bars into masterwork related stuff, and since the average glorious bar is valued at 4.9 million, then after 1 hour you have 18.8 million worth of value, not 23m like the guide says.
