    Time for a LootHoarder psa! If you are a hoarder like me (who knew!?), then it's likely you have somewhere between 280 and 290 pieces of unused mostly legendary gear floating about in your inventory just waiting for this event to come up. Here's the LootHoarder guide for all my hoarders out there to think about in addition to the suggestions above:

    Identify a subset of your gear with your desired perfect traits regardless of level to NOT scrap. This is a prep stage for if ever NG decides to allow gear to be upgraded/removing level caps whatnot. It may never happen. But thats what some folk said about allowing survs to level past their original caps or to allow epic survs to upgrade to legendary. You easily have the space to hold on to some gear in case they ever do it for gear too. The only penalty you suffer for so doing if it never happens is that you're right back in the same position you're in right meow this time next year thinking about that upcoming scrap event.

    Yep. Except I scrapped everything (around 26M in gear) last week. Got sick of waiting. It's fine though, since it got me to be able to upgrade all but 2 survivors, and all the Legendary 21-->24 gear I had.

    @Gindy do you have a gold vs time chart handy?

    From my experience if people are going to rush upgrades it's best to do it right away.

    20 hours is "X" amount of gold but 10 hours isn't "X divided by 2" amount of gold.

    Anyone got a chart?

    What? This will never happen.

    With that said, I still hoard loot with optimal stats 'just in case'. :wink:

    @DLich / @JayZ -- if I remember correctly, time::gold is a linear equation in the high-level sense. Yes, there's some fluidity if you do the math to the minute (hence the difference in decimals), but it doesn't go quadratic like soup::gold does as you approach the 300k mark.

    Rather, it aligns most similarly to XP::gold. For every 7'ish minute window it costs 1 gold. Eg. 1-7 minutes to speed costs 1 gold. If your timer is between 8-14 minutes it's 2 gold.... 1197 - 1204 minutes (19:57h - 20.:04h) will cost you 167 gold... and so on.


    (haven't thought about this in a while since I stopped rushing after my Training Grounds hit L19 :p)

    @Gindy @JayZ thank you. If it's linear then that's good.

    If I recall when I rushed my workshop it was 225 gold for 48 hours.

    I never actually looked at plot points but 7 minutes per gold can easily be plotted in a few hours or so.

    @Gindy / @DLich I could have sworn (but I might be wrong) that something was not quite linear. Maybe it was speeding up hospital time with gold? Again, I might be wrong, but there is something nagging me in the back of my head. I'll continue to update my post when possible so we can maybe get some rough confirmation that it is linear with upgrades.

    Hospital time is nonlinear. It gets exponentially cheaper for less time. I don't remember numbers right now, but 2 hours is 25 gold, and 1 hour is 10. Not the correct numbers I'm sure, but they will be available in a few days :)
    In a way, all of us has an El Guapo to face. For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us.

    I believe that to be true, but I cannot be certain because I am not a god ;)

    Yes...but you´ll also need gold to speed up the upgrades fast enough ;)

    That's perfect
    I have 289 pieces of gear and I was going to get the XP booster later today

    I'll hold off on the booster until the event starts
    Thanks for the heads up, glad I checked in here this morning

    FYI, it looks like the best value for speeding up your upgrades is between 10 H and 20 H if you choose to speed up your upgrades with gold. You should only use gold to speed your upgrades up IF you are close to maxing out on XP and don't want to waste XP.

    See my post above for some numbers. Will continue to try to fill more in when possible.

    EDIT: Added some clarifying language.

    I would also add to this statement, "Between 10h - 20h" and when you have supplies to immediately start your next upgrade..

    Speeding an upgrade then having your shop idle while you continue to farm is no bueno. Even if you save only a few gold, it's still gold saved!

    Thanks for leading this charge - great info!

    I need supplies to upgrade my training grounds and workshop first! I thought I had more time to prepare when @Teeceezy said spring cleaning would be pushed to summer.

    Glad it isn't a paltry 1.2x though.
