Apothecary gold bonus not working

My gold multiplier is 2.25. With apothecary that should raise to 2.5.
The fight should yield 1393. I end up with 3359.
If my multiplier would have been 2.5 I would have ended up with more than 3482 (due to match 4/5).

If I use the multiplier 2.25, I should have more than 3134. This is correct as I got a lot of matches 4/5.

Or am I missing something? Apothecary was not stunned or anything at the end of the fight

Merchant trait only applies to the gold earned in battle, not the PvP bonus.

Apothecary modifies the gold earned in battle, pre-cap. This is the same as Alchemist, or Valkyrie for souls. Each in-battle resource is capped, and then multiplied by the value you see on the world map.

The only ways to increase the post-cap multiplier are:

  • Wear Armor
  • Pay for VIP levels
  • Increase difficulty levels (outside of PVP)
  • Earn the guild statue bonus (for Souls [purple] and XP [blue])

The formula for gold earned in a fight is:
gtotal = (gpvp + min((gmatch * modtraits), 105)) * modglobal


You forget in your formula the trait bonus ;-).

Ah yes. Thank you, amending.

Alright, that’s the part I was missing. I think it used to be different long time ago when I was playing alchemist.
So the trait is quite useless.

@Lyya you mean max rather than min. But thanks for the formula!

No, I meant min. You get whichever is smaller of 105 and the per-match gold, modified by traits.

You’re absolutely right: lesson learned: don’t reply at 5am :slight_smile:
