Increases in buying costs of houses, info from tstotopix & wikia.


  • This is some great information, thank you...
    You just had to look didn't ya!...
  • Thank you for this @Muhsterino. I don't House farm in my main, but seems like the best way to get ahead in my Crawl :/ I was beginning to wonder if the increases ever stop. $230,400 is a bit crazy for one house. :o

    Makes me glad the price change happened before I started playing.

    I'm glad they didn't raise the prices of the KEMs.

    I think they did. They used to be a fixed price long ago I believe.

    anyone wanna crunch the numbers and tell me how many of each house i should buy that's viable?

    i've currently gone up to around the 20k per house mark, or around 10-15 of each colour

    Except for the purple house, once the cost is maxed out the ROI time for perfect collection is the same:
    (these numbers assume no bonus)
    Orange: 180000 cash/250 cash/cycle = 720 cycles. 720 cycles x 16 hours/cycle = 11520 hrs = 480 days
    White: 192000 cash/200 cash/cycle = 960 cycles. 960 cycles x 12 hours/cycle = 11520 hrs = 480 days
    Blue: 216000 cash/150 cach/cycle = 1440 cycles. 1440 cycles x 8 hours/cycle = 11520 hrs = 480 days
    Pink: 230400 cash/120 cash/cycle = 1920 cycles. 1920 cycles x 6 hours/cycle = 11520 hrs = 480 days
    Purple: 216000 cash/75 cash/cycle = 2880 cycles. 2880 cycles x 3 hours/cycle = 8640 hrs = 360 days

    So purple will pay for itself 33% faster, but that's only if you're able to collect more regularly. The higher house types will pay off at the same overall rate, but that assumes perfect collection.

    Brown is a little different because of the very short cycle:
    Brown: 17300 cash/6 cash/cycle = 2884 cycles (rounded up). (2884 cycles x 5 min/cycle) / 60 mins/hr = 240.33 hrs = ~10 days

    A brown house will pay itself off in about 10 days, but only if you're on there tapping every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day.
