    Rune Calculator

    Are there any alternative links for this?

    The one on the main site is down, and I really wanted to try this out, like finding out how many el's I need to make a Zod :lol:

    Oh, you need 14,281,868,906,496 El runes to make a Zod.

    THe number of runes needed can be easily calculated using one of the following 3 formulas. There are three scenarios:

    1. Making a runes #1-#21 (el - pul)

    number of runes = 3^(F-I)
    where F= final rune# or the rune# of the rune you're trying to make
    where I= rune# of the input runes


    2. Making runes #22-#33 (um - zod) by using runes #1-#21 (el - pul)

    number of runes = (3^(21-I)) * (2^(F-21))


    3. Making runes #22-#33 (um - zod) by using runes #22 and above (#22-#33)

    number of runes = 2^(F-I)



    If you understand enough math to do exponents, you'll understand this easily. If not, I quickly constructed an excel spreadsheet to do it all for you under the 3 scenarios I set out:
