Total clicks: 20

 

Number of fill: 9 (10th fill decays)

 

Number of empty: 10

 

 

 

Conclusion: 9 full trips, 63 essence crafted before decay.

 

___________________________________________________________________

Total clicks: 42

 

Number of fill: 20 (21st fill decays)

 

Number of empty: 21

 

 

 

Conclusion: 20 full trips, 100 essence crafted before decay.

 

___________________________________________________________________

 

Large Decay status (33.3%, or 3 essence):

 

 

 

Total clicks: 130

 

Number of fill: 64 (65th fill destroys pouch)

 

Number of empty: 65

___________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

Final conclusion: 122 full trips (123rd trip destroys pouch), 616 total essence crafted.[/hide]

 

 

 

[hide=Medium Pouch]From a fully repaired state:

 

 

 

Medium Pouch to decay:

 

 

 

Total clicks: 91

 

Number of fill: 45 (46th fill decays)

 

Number of empty: 45

 

 

 

Conclusion: 45 full trips, 270 essence crafted before decay.

 

___________________________________________________________________

 

Medium Decay status (50% fill, or 3 essence):

 

 

 

Total clicks: 268

 

Number of fill: 133 (134th fill destroys pouch)

 

Number of empty: 134

 

 

 

Conclusion: 133 full trips, 399 essence crafted before pouch is destroyed.

 

___________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

Final conclusion: 178 full trips (179th trip destroys pouch), 669 total essence crafted.[/hide]

 

 

 

[hide=Small Pouch]From a fully repaired state:

 

 

 

Small Pouch to decay:

 

 

 

Total clicks: N/A

 

Number of fill:N/A

 

Number of empty: N/A

 

 

 

Tested with over 500 fills and empties.

 

 

 

Final Conclusion: Small pouches never decay.[/hide]

 

 

 

Some conclusions can be derived from this data:

 

 

 

  • [*:3ll8kths]
When a pouch can no longer decay any further, it is destroyed
 
[*:3ll8kths]The rate in which a pouch decays does not follow any geometric pattern
 
[*:3ll8kths]Each pouch is independent when determining the rate in which they decay (Using all 4 pouches will decay a Giant pouch at the same rate as if it were to be used alone).
 
[*:3ll8kths]The rate in which a pouch decays is based on number of essence put in said pouch, not the amount of clicks. Therefore, you could fill a Giant pouch 120 times by putting 1 essence at a time, or you could fill it completely 10 times.
 
[*:3ll8kths]The first values in which a pouch degrades remains constant (Giant is 120 essence, Large is 261 essence, Medium is 270 essence). Further decaying has shown to have a precision error of several whole numbers (Eg. Giant pouch first level of decay, or 75%/9 essence has shown to decay to the second level of decay, or 66.7%/8 essence, at either 18 essence [2 fills] or 27 [3 fills]
 
[*:3ll8kths]It is inferred that the reason Small pouches don't decay is because the decay value would result in only 1 essence being held, therefore making said pouch obsolete.

Wow, well done! Good research, and pretty cool to look at.

 

I never had one of my small pouches decay, but my large one does all the time :(

 

 

 

I don't see this as insanely useful but cool :) 10/10 for Effort.

You destroyed your giant pouch to write this guide. Awesome :D

 

 

 

Good to know, now let's see if I can get myself to repair my giant pouch every 10th run.

For the advancement of general knowledge 10/10 :thumbup:

 

 

 

Its interesting to note that there's no math involved, but I guess jagex doesn't want to complicate everything into higher math when a simple decreasing for-loop will suffice.

 

 

 

Oh, and thanks for that little side note on the small pouch... the implication was not necessary but appreciated.

I read through most of it and it looks like this took awhile for you to collect. THis will help me when I need to runecraft later on.

 

 

 

You would make a good PMG mod. :D

Oh but I am a PMG mod, you should check the Moderators list at the top.
