Denarii Exchange Boost

I noticed Plarium doesn't give what they promise.

I can count, but Plarium can not.

But that is unlikely, they can very well to their own advantage.

When I activate my Phylarch bonuses, in particular the Denarii Exchange Boost of 40%.

You might think if you set your Argentarium on 500 Denarii which normally takes 1 hour=60 min. minus 40% is 36 min Yes???

No for Plarium is a 40% boost of 60 min.  42 min. and 51 sec. can somebody please explain?

Because if I calculate 60 min. minus 40% with a calculator (60 x 40% = 24) 60 - 24 = 36 minutes!

thanks in advance,

well let me try to explain, knowing plarium their math is always upside down so it will go like this

Regular exchange for 500 denari is 60 min.

40% in their case means you get 40% more in the same time so it means

500+40% = 700 denarii per 1 hours, which lead us to 42 min for 500 denari

hope this helps

Hoi Tripl,

Thanks for the expanation and yes it is helpfull.I was thinking that direction but did not figure it out yet.

It is the same when big company (electronics giants) says you can buy tax free on a certain date  with 21% tax 100€ + 21% is 121€.

if you think 121€ - 21%= 96 so it is the same error in backward calculation.

But for me it was not clear the 40% boost was on the amount of Dinarii instead of 40% boost on time.

Thanks again regards,

Hi! It's not a bug. The boost increases speed of conversion, it doesn't cut the time. Which is a different formula. 

Let's say that you can convert 500 Denarii in 1 hour. If you work 40% faster, you can convert 500+200(40%) Denarii in 1 hour. Which means that 500 Denarii will be converted in 42+ minutes.
