So I know that EPA means "echoes per action", but since these actions don’t directly give you echoes, it’s an equivalency. But one thing that’s been bothering me is, items have both a value and a sell price [typically both are in echoes and the latter being half the former], so which is the value used to determine EPA.
Let me give an example so I’m sure we’re on the same page. I’m currently hovering around 75 Dangerous, so I spend time at Wolfstack pummeling spiders for fun and profit. One specific task rewards me with 66 Silk Scraps on success. If I needed Silk Scraps and had to buy them, this would cost me 1.32€; but if I wanted something else, I’d have to sell the Silk Scraps, and get 0.66€. Which is the basis for EPA?
Next, of similar importance, is your chance of success calculated into EPA? This same action currently has a 66% chance of success. Is my EPA 1.32€ [100% of 1.32€], 0.87€ [66% of 1.32€], 0.66€ [100% of 0.66€] or 0.44€ [66% of 0.66€]?
I’m probably overthinking this and I’m sorry if anyone is confused, but when I see mention of EPA I genuinely don’t know what it means.
