Guide to Crest Plate use

Postby -SS-Thrawn-SS- on May 5 2017, 7:13am

This is a simple thread that documents how many crestplates are needed for each building level. Also included are simple math to calculate how much gold each crestplate is worth for each level. Since they were released with the Orisons of Glory pt 9 event, I hope this thread will help you plan how to use the set of plates you earn to your best advantage.

EDIT 2017-07-12 the final osman section is completed! Many, many thanks to the numerous people who contributed values out of my reach! Enjoy, and happy KaWing.

Yeah, I'm bummed but not surprised about the diminishing returns at higher levels. Over 4x more efficient to build lv1 in abyss compared to getting a lv10.

Yeah zorkay, that's how I felt about lowlands. I'll add them at some point to make it complete, but I thought this was shorter and sweeter.
