So here I am trying to make a Rogue Rajamala Blademaster as an alt, so that I don't really have to worry about her having any responsibilities and can resort to eating butterflies as a naked forest hobo if I have to. Thinking in the long term Blademaster swords are stupidly easy to make so the only thing money wise that I'd worry about turning into dust is a scabbard and a set of ringmail, which honestly doesn't cost much.
Then I got the name "Conquering Spirit" made of Lead and Mercury (Cinnabar). I immediately decided that I have to preserve this for eternity.
Turns out that you can't non-decay Blademaster swords, so now the cost went up from 50 credits to 350 to get the band of fire.
That's a footnote of 1.95 million gold, or ~250,000 butterflies and ~2,000 nets from what I'm looking at.
There's gotta be a better way to get that dosh, but it's looking bleak for a naked forest hobo blademaster. Any tips? Thankfully I got til like July 11th of next year.
