How is the cost calculated?

In the formula table, the total cost listed is 62,750+. My calculations: 3 x 220 (rice paper) + 8 x 7,750 (droid parts) and assuming Splintered Wood was acquired through loot, and ignoring the shards for the moment = 62,660. Where does the extra 90 come from? Camomiletea 18:52, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Looks like I hit a wrong number on my calculator earlier lol. Yup you're right the figure should be 62,660. Which is Droid Parts + Rice paper since the wood can be looted off Dwarf and Worker mice. -- Grexx 19:01, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
The cost of Combat (285) + Glutter (151) + Susheese (164) = 600 gold. adding that to 62,660 which gives the lowest possible Ambush cost of 63,260 gold. -- Grexx 19:09, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
I think any listed costs should exclude any bait costs and only mention that as an additional cost as per the ACRONYM, etc. -- B.Rossow talkcontr 19:12, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm fine either ways. I calculated it this way in the formula table since that was how it used to be calculated. Never put any thought into it though. But for simplicity that seems preferable, especially considering we have new traps coming up that require crafting, making it impossible to accurately calculate any of the bait costs. Looks like the price of the Ambush is going down again (almost as fast as the price of gas :P) -- Grexx 19:21, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
