Poll Question: Which category do you fall into? (If you dont take drugs, please Opt Out)

sovl38.png

Where's a quick summary of cost of the actual pills themselves:
qx536d.png

I just did this to see the true cost, and it astonished me. Remember, this figures are estimates as ofcourse other time your rehab cost will rise and rise, which means it will cost you more and more.

I'd just like to see how/if people are managing to actually grow their wealth with these huge costs? Ofcourse there are many different ways to make money in Torn, but the obvious one which most people do is the Torn City Bank. (Assuming 2bn investment for 2 month periods, estimated only).

Per week: 25m
Per month: 110m
Per 2 months: 420m
Per 6 months: 1.26bn
Per 12 months: 2.52bn

For me, I'm in category 5 atm, costing me around 37m per rehab (10 xanax pills). Meaning this is costing me about 2.2bn every 6 months (2.62bn including cost of xanax pills @ 800k each). So for me its a 1.36bn shortfall every 6 months..

Again, these figures are estimates so please no bitching about accuracy. Also, generally my estimates are quite low, so actual figures are higher (also info here doesnt include the exponential increase in rehab costs).

Hope you guys are enjoying the xanax.

Which category do you fall into?

Are you staying afloat? (If so, how?)

Category 7/8. Costs me 50 - 60m per 8 Xanax. Fortunately I rarely get that third daily Xanax done, so it works out to about 100m a week. 5b+ in a year ... Been going backwards for a while now

Holy crap, that is very expensive! I guess you've taken a lot of vicodin as well which all adds up..

I think I speak for many people, that they are just using their savings to pay for it..

Eventually things will catch up, unless they are really working hard with their money to keep up.

Wow this poll is top-heavy. I'm almost at 2k Xanax taken and I'm in category 1
The majority of players have taken less than 2k.

Seriously? After how many xanax used do you then rehab?

I'm assuming PT have Herm X, that must help a lot if you've been in the faction for a long time.

i remember someone a while ago, went to rehab after just a few months of no rehab, it cost them 950 mil.

i'm cheap right now only 3-4 mil per 10 xanax. (this is just an estimate)

I rehab 1x a week, and then again 2 days later, because I'm in PAs. I suppose I could just rehab every 5 days but I'm a procrastinator.
I don't count xanax. 17 a week maybe?

I've been in PT for like a year. The rest of the time I had very little Herm.

I didn't say before but I'm able to cover the costs just fine, ofc, being in category 1.

Category 7, paying around 6m per xanax pill for rehab currently.

Still within budget though and as long as my company profit isn't wrecked by these updates I doubt I ever won't be able to afford this. Even if it is I still make a decent wage from stocks, will just have more capital to work with then.

Just out of curiosity, where would 15m a week fall, category 1 or 2?
I'm at just over 10m. So is that category 2?

Well, I just took it as rehab every 10 xanax taken. Just to simplify things, its quantified in xanax taken not timescale.

so you need to work out how much it would cost you to rehab after taken 10 xanax.

Right, but that's not my question.
I'm asking about the gap itself, between category 1 and 2. From 4m to 8m per 10 xanax is double, you'll be in that gap for quite a while.

So just round to the nearest one? If you're at 6m per 10 you'd round up to category 2? Even though it's months away?

I'm staying afloat with my property rentals; I need to get a real job paying more money and just count on my trains to increase my stats.

i was terrified when i saw where taking xanax may go and for a moment, i thought i might go for drug free gym while i can. But after seeing this, i won't. i don't even know if i'm going to live after taking 10k xanax!

The other drugs aren't as addictive, it's the hermetic that makes the difference

Category 7/8. Costs me 50 - 60m per 8 Xanax. Fortunately I rarely get that third daily Xanax done, so it works out to about 100m a week. 5b+ in a year ... Been going backwards for a while now

*Please note*


Hmm that estimate seems to be a little bit pricey if the rehab decay cap does actually hit somewhere around the 8.5 mil mark as reported previously - with hermetic VI your rehab bills should be around the $50 mil mark for 8 xanax.

I know you know this already tigger, but for others out there in a similar situation one thing that would help a bit if you're moving towards or have hit the rehab decay cap is hopping into a cruise line job. The R&R special in a cruise line job would cut around 1 xanax worth of addiction from your rehab bill every 4 days (depending on your factions hermetic level), which is a saving of $500-600 mil per year just on its own in this case - plus the extra $250-odd mil you'd get per year in wages @ $700k per day.

That might not fix the problem altogether, but it should help slow the bleeding a little. Put that together with your 3 bil per year in bank interest (6 x two-month deposits with 10/10 bank interest upgrades and TCB) and a few item stocks that you sell the items from (eg. FHC, SYM, PRM) and that should pretty much get you past the $4-$4.5 bil per year it should cost to cover your rehab bills going forward (if you sell the items of course).

From there you just need to find some way to make the extra $1.2 bil it costs per year for your refills and 2 xanax per day (up that to about $1.5 bil per year if you're doing 3 xanax per day).

Still in category 3 - about 2.5 mil per xanax with no R&R special, $2.3 mil per xanax with the R&R special (R&R basically saves me one xanax worth of rehab in every 12 xanax cycle).

Hermetic XI is obviously a massive help here though. Can't tell you how much I love our hermetic.
