# E&P Emblem Cost Calculator

## Guvs Emblem Calculator

Hey all!

In view of the posting I did on this thread (Reset & Re-Classing Projects (share your experience) - #2 by Guvnor) I wanted something which would give me a better idea of the cost of resetting various projects as well as allowing me to plan out how far & how much emblems I could use on different heroes.

So I made the below calculator!

### What it does:

This calculator does a couple things. Primarily it is designed to help with emblem planning/ working out costs of moving or assigning emblems & whether you REALLY want to do thatâ€¦

1. Calculates the final node you can get to with current emblems
2. Calculates the Food & Iron cost to go from current node to last possible node.
3. Tells you the excess emblems you have & how many you need for the next node.
4. Calculates the total food, iron & emblems committed at the current node.
5. Calculates the food, iron & emblem costs to an input â€śtargetâ€ť node
6. Calculates the food, iron & emblem costs of â€śmaxingâ€ť the talent grid
• Some pre-set â€śmaxâ€ť points of Nodes 7, 15, 18, 19 & 20.

### Instructions for use:

There is a tab with this on it. Just read it.

Feel free to make a copy or just work off my one.

## Update Log

30 July:

• Input the node you wish to progress to
• Outputs will include excess/ required emblems, food & iron costs
• Added Emblems required to â€śMaxâ€ť the Talent Grid
• Preset â€śmaxâ€ť points being Nodes 7, 15, 18, 19 & 20
• Other points you can simply use the â€śtarget nodeâ€ť calculation

Booyaah!! Itâ€™s hard to manually calculate repeatedly embleming projects as well as stripping heroes of their emblems. I have plans to strip Kage and Albe of their emblems in favor of GM and Vela but I am hesitant cause i have invested a ton of food and iron on them and i am still leveling HA and Adv Farm, the former is iton-extensive. Will check on it later. Thanks, Guv

Thx @Guvnor

It is a nice addon as for several hero classes embleming to level 20 is not worth it.

A bit ironic, I was looking for an emblem cost table. My browser already had this tab opened but Iâ€™d forgotten about it

Awesome tool @Guvnor, thanks!

I am working on a general calculator app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jaroderoose.empiresandpuzzlescalculator), would it be interesting if I included these emblem calculations into the app, to be able to do some quick calculations on your smartphone?

Iâ€™ve been working recently on emblems calculator, which shows the stats depending od the chosen path (eg. below). But google docs doesnâ€™t support macros

It does, just have to re-write the macroâ€¦ It also uses a completely different syntax & code set-up compared to Excel VBA. Its close but not quite the sameâ€¦

But there is no ability to â€śimportâ€ť your VBA code into Google Sheets.

I know itâ€™s only been a few days since the changes so obviously havenâ€™t had the time to gather all the info and work on this, and also this might not be as valuable as it once was with those changesâ€¦but are you planning to update this to account for the new costs?

Hey Guvâ€¦

Awesome resource but there is a tiny booboo in the food calc at node 6. You have 497K for the food cost. Should be 157Kâ€¦

Thanks Guv
