    Because I loot robber barons and norse towers so often, I usually carry a couple mil coins and can upgrade a legendary piece all the way to +10 and yes it is expensive, and costs about 100K-200K coins for each item to get to +10, but in my opinion it's worth it.

    One thing is that people misunderstand probabilities. If it's like 30% or something that's a 3 in 10 chance. So 3 times it would be successful out of 10 times. But the thing is that the events are exclusive. Trying 10 times at the 30% chance does not guarantee an upgrade. Trying 50 times at a 30% chance does not guarantee an upgrade.

    That being said, they want you to use rubies to have the chance go up to 100%. BTW, using rubies does not reset the chance to 100%. It is 100% only for that upgrade. So basically you will either spend hundreds of thousands of coins to upgrade an item completely or spend tens of thousands of rubies.

    Technicus is basically end-game material for castle lords who have millions of coins with nothing much else to spend the coins on.

    while that is true, it seems weird that you can try and upgrade something over a dozen times and fail each time, and repeat that for a good 12 levels, when each one should be giving you anywhere from a 1 in 3 chance to a 1 in 20 chance

    50 times at 30% would only have a .00000001798% chance of happening. Better chance to be struck by lightning this year. I've never had anything that bad from the tech, but I do often get to a 99%+ that it should've succeeded. Get a 99% chance waaaay more than I should.

    Definately worth upgrading decent equipment, Technicus is not a rip off whatsoever

    It can be ridiculous at times and maybe there should be a max fail thing in place but its definitely worth it.

    You wasted thousands? Your not even in the ballpark.

    I've spent millions and millions and millions. Maybe more than 50 million I would guess.

    It's an essential part of the game. I love you technicus!

    it is very important, and it really helps get great commanders and castellans, and it does have good and bad times. i can every so often get a piece up to level 10 techi with just 2-3 fails, but their are times where i spend 200K just to get to level 6. its kind of a luck of the draw thing.

    however take out techi... and then super gens lose a lot of power.... hmmm now thats an idea
