    Upgrading walls with wall rings

    I have some level 13 walls that I want to use wall rings to upgrade to level 14. Level 14 walls cost $6 million to upgrade. Wall rings are worth $1 million each, so it takes 6 wall rings to upgrade it.

    I'm currently getting a 20% discount because I purchased Gold Pass. Therefore it only costs $4.8 million to upgrade to level 14.

    I went to upgrade a wall and it still wanted 6 wall rings to upgrade it. Shouldn't it only utilize 5 wall rings to upgrade the wall, being as the discounted price is only $4.8 million? Why does the use of wall rings not recognize the 20% discount?

    Simply because wall rings are, and always have been, based upon full (undicounted) price.

    No magic item is based upon "actual resource cost", none at all. They are based upon a specific action. So for example, a Book of Heroes cost the same regardless of the hero's level at time of use.

    Because wall rings aren't actually equivalent to 1 Million resources.

    Each level of walls takes a certain number of rings to upgrade one wall. That number is set at a level such that when the walls are full rpice, each one is 1 million worth of wall - provided the walls at full price cost at least a million.

    But they are actually set at x rings needed for this level, and that number takes no account of whether the walls are currently at full price.

    I'll sell my entire village. I'll take 25% of what I paid for it. Deal of the century.

    The same reason hero books still only finish one level of a hero even with a discounted upgrade cost. The magic items arenít effected by discounts
