It will cost you 1 Forge Point to fulfill a trade offer. Note that only the player that accepts the offer will have to spend 1 Forge Point; the player that created the trade offer won't. In guild-only trading, no Forge Point is needed.
You will receive 1 Forge Point every hour up to a maximum of 10. Should your Forge Points reach the maximum of 10, the timer will stop. It will start again (with the same time left on the counter as when it stopped) once you have 9 or fewer Forge Points, therefore it is highly recommended that you spend your Forge Points as often as possible.
Buying Forge Points
You may buy the first Forge Point for 200 coins, and thereafter the price will increase by increments of 50 coins per point. In the diagram below, the cost of FP has risen to 11850 coins, from the original 200 coins.
Forge Point Purchase Cost Formula
In determining how much X amount of Forge Points will cost in terms of coins (Y), use the formula:
Y = X(initial amount to purchase) + 50(X(X-1)/2)
y = 25x2 + (Initial Value - 25)x
For example. I need 23 Forge Points to finish researching a technology. My starting cost is 3000 coins.
- Y = X(3000) + 50(X(X-1) / 2)
- Y = 23(3000) + 50(23 x 22 / 2)
- Y = 81,650 Coins.
- Y = 25(23)2 + (2975)(23)
- Y = 25(529) + 68,425
- Y = 13,225 + 68,425
- Y = 81,650 Coins
The equation is built upon the fact that purchasing a FP increases by +50 coins every time you purchase one.
