[Math] Gem continues - Advice, stats, and math [More math, Math Apocalypse]
Because you do not refresh your battle items, I usually stop at 1x continue.
If I can get the bosses within killing range ( 5% HP to 30% HP depending on attacking team ), reviving the whole team at 100% HP used to be worth it for 3* / 4* materials but now I need 4* heroes more than I need non farmable ascension items.
I was so looking forward to Bag of Holding when I thought it added 2 slots for battle items instead of +2 per slot. The only advantage of +2 per slot is Revive scrolls ( meh ) and Miracle scrolls ( just say no ) and Harpoons ( )
But what if you did not stop at 1x continue?
A very good friend of mine did 7 gem continues in a row.
Each gem continue adds +25 gems to the cost. This is an arithmetic progression.
If you do 30 continues, the final continue will be 800 gems, and your total gems spent will be 13,125 gems.
75 gems + 25 gems per continue
( n / 2 )* ( 75 + 75 + ( n - 1 ) * 25 )
( 30 / 2 ) * ( 150 + ( 29 * 25 ) )
15 * ( 150 + 725 )
15* 875 = 13,125
