    Hello. i am wondering - With the diamond expansions, im guessing that the cost of diamonds goes up by 200 periodically as per the table in the wiki.

    Right now I am in IRON AGE, and have 1 x diamond expansion left - 200 Diamonds as cost.

    My main query - How do i know, or can find out how far along the chart i am on ? The screen tells me how many diamonds it will cost me to buy 1 expansion. But what if i want (in future) to buy 2 x diamond expansions in the same level.

    is there an easy way to see how much the NEXT expansion will cost (there are 2 expansions per age). is there an easy way to figure out where you are on the chart. ?

    It doesn't go up by 200 each era.

    In general, they cost the same per age. If you want to know how much the next two will be, you can base it off of what you paid last. You only get 2 per age until Arctic where you get 3, OF - 6, VF - 4, SA - 6

    No they don't. Wiki link is right in front of you and still you can not get it right? :rolleyes:

    Since you can only buy 2 extensions per age, costs of the next extension will either be those of your age, of those of the next age. On the chart you can not surpass your age, so that is where you are.

    With the link that you have already provided at the beginning of this post, it literally has the information that you seek. It's laid out with a chart showing costs of coins/diamonds and the increase in those costs per numbered expansions. It's in the section under Expansion Fees.

    The wiki page says:
    The diamond purchases CAN be made retrospectively. So, If i go up an age WITHOUT buying a land area with diamonds, I *CAN* buy them retrospectively.

    Currently, my net purchase of a land area will cost me 400 diamonds. So - is that land area number 3, or land area number 4 ?

    if i want to purchase it, will my NEXT land area cost 400 diamonds ? or will it be 600 diamonds ? (ive upgraded ages since my initial post)

    Now - do I purchase 800 diamonds ? or 1,000 diamonds to secure 2 land areas (assuming i have upgraded an age & can back-purchase land areas)

    If im at slots 15/16 - do i purchase 1200 or 1400 diamonds. its only knowable if you manually keep track of where you are. The screen does not advise you (from what i see)
