The Guide to Job Tiers, Loot, and Pawn Shop Analysis

by Salvatore del Piede » Fri Jun 26, 2009 9:38 pm

This topic gives detailed information on all of the tiered jobs and the loot earned. It also includes a benefits analysis of doing the tiers versus dock raids. The data can be a little overwhelming, but summaries are included at the end of each analysis section.



Low-level tiered jobs (opened April 2009)

"jobs per tier" x "energy (E) per job" = "total energy used per tier": "loot earned" +"experience (XP) earned doing entire tier".

Job Tiers, Loot, and Pawn Shop Analysis

I've broken my analysis into 2 parts. This first analysis looks at the lower tiers that get you loot to trade for SKILL POINTS. The second analysis looks at going on to do the higher tiers for loot to trade for PREMIUM STOCKPILE ITEMS.



ANALYSIS #1
"Should I stick to dock raids?
- OR -
Is it worthwhile doing the tiers to trade for skill points?"

Here are the numbers to help YOU decide:



LOW-LEVEL TIERED JOBS:
(Mugging, House Burglary, Stoplight Car Theft, Liquor Store Robbery)

First, let's look at the individual skill point trades. The most "expensive" is the one for 9 skill points which costs 1665E. Equivalent dock raids would get you about 9 RLs which would increase your attack by 63 and defense by 36 (versus 9 chey) for a total increase of 99. However, 9 skill points multiplied by your mob size gives you a much better return.

It takes 4880E to earn the loot for all 49 skill points. You could do 108 dock raids instead, which would get you about 27 RLs. Those 27 RLs would only increase your overall attack by 189 and defense by 108 (versus 27 chey) for a total increase of 297. Even if you only have 50 in your mob, the skill points multiplied by your mob size gives you an increase of 2450! This suggests that it's worthwhile doing all low-level job tiers that earn you loot to trade for skill points.


MID-LEVEL TIERED JOBS:
(Jewelry Store Robbery, Bank Robbery, Drug Dealing, Liquor Smuggling)

Again looking at individual trades, on the mid-level tiered jobs, the most "expensive" skill point trade is the one for 7 skill points, costing 5694E. Equivalent dock raids would get you about 32 RLs which would increase your attack by 224 and defense by 128 (versus 32 chey) for a total increase of 352. However, 7 skill points multiplied by your mob size still gives you a much better return.

It takes 19451E to earn the loot for all 49 skill points. You could do 432 dock raids instead, which would get you about 108 RLs. Those 108 RLs would only increase your overall attack by 756 and defense by 432 (versus 108 chey) for a total increase of 1188. Even if you only have 50 in your mob, the skill points multiplied by your mob size gives you an increase of 2450! This suggests that it's worthwhile doing all mid-level job tiers that earn you loot to trade for skill points.

ANALYSIS #2
"Earn loot for skill points then go back to doing dock raids?
- OR -
Do all the jobs for skill points AND premium stockpile items?"

Here are the numbers to help YOU decide:


LOW-LEVEL TIERED JOBS:
(Mugging, House Burglary, Stoplight Car Theft, Liquor Store Robbery)

After doing only the tiers that get you skill points on the low-level set of tiered jobs, it takes just 1155E more to earn the loot to trade for 10 Rocket Launchers (RLs). (You'd only expect to get about 6-7 RLs if you spent that E doing dock raids.)

Next, you can get 10 riot shields (RSs) for 2350E (versus 13 RLs doing dock raids.) (You may debate this one, but I'll take +80attack & +100def for 10 RSs versus +91attack & +52 def for the 13 RLs any day.)

Next, it takes 3205E to get 5 armored vans (AVs). That's not much of a deal, considering you can get about 17-18 RLs doing dock raids. However, since it's a requirement to be able to make the final trade for 10 big momma grenade guns (BMGGs) and 10 mighty magnums (MMs), for comparison, we need to combine these two pawn shop trades:

After doing the tiers required to trade for all of the skill points, it takes 5845E more to get 5 AVs, 10 BMGGs and 10 MMs. These items will increase your attack by 405 and defense by 420 versus 5 Bearcats, 5 Humvees, and 20 Chey. Spending the same E doing dock raids, you could expect to get 32-33 RLs. Those 33 RLs would only increase your attack by 231 and defense by 132 versus 33 Chey (though you would get 1782 more XP doing the dock raids).

Low-level tiered jobs - SUMMARY
The data suggests that it's very worthwhile doing ALL of the tiers for ALL of the low-level tiered jobs. Rather than doing only the tiers for skill points and then going back to doing dock raids, doing ALL of the loot item tiers of ALL of the low-level jobs will increase your attack by 174 more and defense by 288 more.

MID-LEVEL TIERED JOBS:
(Jewelry Store Robbery, Bank Robbery, Drug Dealing, Liquor Smuggling)

After doing only the tiers that get you skill points on the mid-level set of tiered jobs, it takes 7707E to earn the loot to trade for 10 RLs. (You would expect to get about 42-43 RLs if you spent that E doing dock raids.)

Next, you would get 10 RSs for 5374E (versus 119 RLs doing dock raids.) (These get you +80attack & +100def versus +833attack & +476 def for the 119 RLs.)

Next, it takes 6272 E to get 5 AVs. You would get about 35 RLs doing dock raids instead.

Since the all of the above tiers are requirements to be able to make the final trade for 10 BMGGs and 10 MMs, for comparison, we need to combine all of the premium stockpile item pawn shop trades:

After doing all of the tiers required for skill points, it takes 27713E more to get 10 RLs, 10 RSs, 5 AVs, 10 BMGGs and 10 MMs. These items increase your attack by 555 and defense by 560 versus your standard stockpile items (10 Tac Armor, 5 Bearcats, 5 Humvees, and 30 Chey) (although you do get 7797 more XP doing the tiers). Spending the same E doing dock raids, you could expect to get 154 RLs. Those 154 RLs would increase your attack by 1078 and defense by 616 versus 154 Chey.

Mid-level tiered jobs - SUMMARY
The data suggests that it's worthwhile doing ONLY the skill point tiers of the mid-level tiered jobs. Neither the individual loot trades for premium stockpile items nor the aggregate of all loot trades for all premium stockpile items get you as much return as doing dock raids. Instead of doing ALL of the tiers of ALL the mid-level jobs, doing only the tiers for skill points and then going back to doing dock raids for RLs would raise your attack 523 more and defense 56 more.


Disclaimer: Since I'm only human, there may be a few minor inaccuracies in this data. Overall, it will not effect the analysis. If you have any questions about my calculations, please send me a PM.

RANDOM NOTES ABOUT TIERED JOBS:

  • You do NOT need to complete all tiers of all low-level jobs to be able to start doing tiers of the mid-level jobs.
  • Once you do all 11 tiers of each job, no more loot can be earned by doing them further.
  • Once you complete all tiers of ALL jobs, it does NOT reset. Doing everything does not allow you to start over and earn more loot.
  • Everything is subject to change.
