This was a secret? lol... thought it was just another ship 2 spam thread
It is. It's also another comically misleading topic. 4 million? 8 minutes? Where are these numbers coming from?
4 million works out to 333⅓ EX-Cubes. Suppose your item hunting nets you 13★ and 14★ weapons in a 2:1 ratio and you indiscriminately cube everything (instead of keeping more of the latter), it would take around 61 13★ weapons and 31 14★ weapons to get 333⅓ EX-Cubes. (In the process you'd lose around 150k appraising the unidentified weapons but let's set that aside for brevity.)
So... is the 8 minutes to identify all those unappraised drops, convert them all into EX-Cubes, convert those into Grinders and lastly sell them all? It could probably be done a little quicker unless you wanted to take a bit of time looking for any drops in that you might wish to keep (good 8-slot augment sets that might be useful affix fodder in particular). That's fine.
But it forgets the time needed to farm 61 13★ weapons and 31 14★ weapons, or perhaps even to clear out the storage necessary to temporarily hold them in the first place. It's likely assuming Cradle of Darkness UH which is probably the only source that drops 13★ and 14★ in a ratio somewhere around that but also in that kind of volume. If so, that time needs to be added. Now it's not 8 minutes anymore.
More to the point, it's not any 8 minutes. Since the new schedule dropped on Wednesday morning we've had 20 scheduled Wild Easter windows and 2 Cradle of Darkness UH windows. There haven't been any unscheduled ones. The rest of this week has 1 more scheduled, next week there are 2, and the following week there's only 1! So in three weeks of scheduling we have 6 windows of Cradle of Darkness in total. Not a lot of opportunity! Also I think triggers (which unlike windows would take a few minutes to fill) are only in Fresh Finds and likely have an SG cost.
In short it seems like Sega may have already been aware of how rewarding this one UQ would be and limited its windows accordingly (maybe in response to any inflation it may have caused on JP?)
But hey, if we're ignoring combat time and the costs of both indiscriminately mulching potentially useful weapons into grinders (opportunity cost) and freeing up enough inventory and storage space to keep that many of Cradle's drops (admin cost), here's a few more totally sensible ways to make that money that you surely had no idea about until I mentioned them!!
Put up the 331: Pole Dance emote ticket you totally have in your Player Shop for 4 million!
It'll sell within 8 minutes because of how extreme of an undercut that is.
