Black Shell

As you cast Rubayak's Power Storage on a black shell stars will start to appear inside the shell. The number of stars in the shell corresponds to energy at least equal to the number of pinches of purple mineral powder within the shell, rounding down. A shell with 2 star could have as much energy as 14/5ths a pinch of purple mineral powder (2 and 4/5ths), while a shell with energy equal to just 4/5ths a pinch of purple mineral powder would show as having no stars at all.

  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out one tiny sparkling star."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out two tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out three tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out four tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out five tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out six tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out seven tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out eight tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out nine tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out ten tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out more than a dozen tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out more than twenty tiny sparkling stars."
  • "The interior of the shell is filled with a faint swirling pinkish mist, within which you can make out many tiny sparkling stars."

To get the best results, cast Rubayak's Power Storage at full GP (and in a quiet room, with no GP draining items on) and average the results of the first few casts on a shell to get an idea of how much power is actually getting into the shell. Then keep track of how many times you've cast RPS on the shell. Multiply to find the amount of power contained in the shell, and use the star messages to help verify you are correct.
