Talk:Thaum crystal

Huh. That's kind of freaky. I wonder if smashing them is really supposed to be able to reduce the number of thaums in a room? I can't imagine how that's supposed to work, anyway.

I can donate some thaum crystals to SCIENCE if you're running out. I was going to experiment with smashing them but never got around to it (so much for breaking through to the Dungeon Dimensions that way). --Ilde 03:20, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Well someone (Elanor maybe?) wrote that they bugged it I think, probably in the newspaper article that chronicled the introduction of shards.

I can just fly to the nest to get crystal eggs so it's not hard to get more but I don't have the time to finish the testing today.

I guess these weird things are designed to keep people from raising thaums too high in arbitrary rooms, but the stale thaums diminishing is very weird.

That article mentioned that it was to be fixed soon but apparently not yet... Maybe it's designed that way?

Ok so the weirdness also went to bug #118350.

Just need to find a room that starts with less than 500 thaums stale thaums to check that it adds up to 500 with fresh thaums + stale thaums = 500.

Have you tried the Artificers' Academy? The smithy "has seen some use of magic", and I think that's all stale thaums. --Ilde 05:09, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Ok got the fixed bug reply about the negative thaums, hopefully the whole thing is simpler now. Need new research. --Frazyl 06:49, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
