Data

Merging Clover's old research with my own gives the following data:

Divining
  • bonus - chance of success
  • 118 and possibly higher - 0
  • 184 - 0.55
  • 192 - 0.65
  • 205 - 0.75
  • 230 - 0.85
Convoking
  • 0-198 - 0
  • 204 - 0.05
  • 207 - 0.15
  • 215 - 0.25
  • 220 - 0.35
  • 260 - 0.75
  • 277 - 0.85
Enchanting
  • 0-250 - 0
  • 255 - 0.15
  • 264 - 0.25
  • 270 - 0.35
  • 274 - 0.45
  • 284 - 0.55
  • 292 - 0.65

Analysis

Curve fitting gives:

Divining
  • Equation: Y = ln(X - 43.2) - 4.37
  • Error: 2.36%
  • Parameters: cutoff = 122, half-life = 51
Convoking
  • Equation: Y = ln(X - 141.13) - 4.05
  • Error: 2.25%
  • Parameters: cutoff = 198, half-life = 37
Enchanting
  • Equation: Y = ln(X - 202.44) - 3.85
  • Error: 2.06%
  • Parameters: cutoff = 249, half-life = 30

Pampering

This is the approximate amount of times a freshly deluded item has to get shown to another person who manually accepts the offer in order to get it to an octarine haze:

  • small paper packet ~50
  • rose rhodonite rings ~110
