I used to skip gold quests for mercenaries for a long time, except when starting a new ascension to get a quick boost.
I always played the active style, but recently I decided to check if it would help to go on idle by buying the idle ancients and upgrading them to levels where they used about 1-3% of my total Hero Souls. The damage done was too low to notice when the idle mode kicked in, so I continued in my active style.
But now I suddenly get a bit more gold then I have at that moment from mercenaries, where I previously got about xE15 lower.
Probably one or more of the following ancients have some great influence on the gold gained from mercenary quests:
- Libertas (gold related)
- Nogardnit (gold related)
What is the actual calculation for the gold gained from mercenary quests?
Some information about my game:
- Mercenary levels: 15-25
- Tested at levels: 8000-8100
- Gold at the moment of collecting: xE636
- Gold gained from the mercenary: xE637-xE638
- Gold gained form the mercenary before added ancients: xE622-xE625
- I got 7 autoclickers clicking the field, 1 clicking the upgrade for Tsuchi
- Level of Xyliqil: 0
I wrote these out of memory, exact gold amount may not be correct, but the actual differences between them are.
The wikia page didn't provided much info either.
