So to make my +6 orb I need a total of 230 +1 orbs?
I am still having a bit of trouble understanding the guide :-(
So basically these are the orbs I need to make?
Specific Orbs Needed=1 (3 Star), 2 (5 Stars)
So I go to the 3 star guide
Specific Orbs Needed=2 (1 Stars), 2 (2 Stars)
and start here?

This is a nice thread, and I can understand it's utility for making one star through 4 star orbs (of these 4 star seems the only one really worth making, because you can just refine a bunch of times for 2 star and 3 star items without much trouble), but I'm having trouble figuring out why anyone would want to make a 6 or 7 star star orb etc. from one star orbs. There are often sales for 5 star orbs and 10 star orbs that allow you to upgrade from 5 star to 10 star more cheaply than making the orbs themselves. If you use this guide to calculate the cost of making even a 6 star orb at one star orb sale prices you will see that often buying sale priced 10 star orbs is a much better deal.
PWI adds the sales to give us added value. It makes sense to use them IMHO!

So out of curiosity... how much would this cost for Occupy Daddy's Credit Carders?

...just buy 2 ocean orbs..
will1smith - I've just recently used this guide for the high-level D.Orbs and I noticed that to make my Dragon Orb +9 I needed 790 1star Orbs, and not only 750.
I double-checked to make sure it wasn't a mistake on my part, but I wouldn't be able to tell you exactly where I think the extra 40 come from.
If anyone else feels like making a D.Orb +9, please count the 1star Orbs used, so we may modify the info on this thread, if what I saw was indeed correct.
Asterelle - Sanctuary - Instead of 2740 of those 1 stars just buy 2 ocean orbs. This opening post needs to be fixed so it doesn't give people bad advice.
Mayfly - Dreamweaver - I've yet to see 5* DOrbs in the boutique for less than the price of whatever 60 1*s are selling for that week.

This is not "How to combine D.Orbs from boutique purchases" the intro clearly states this guide is for those wanting to use 1 star orbs. Is it cost effective to make a 10 star from one stars, heck no, but anyone in their right mind should be able to figure it out.
The purpose behind it was to inform people of the method to create orbs successfully and without having to do the math every time themselves. I wouldn't honestly suggest making anything higher than a 7 star from one stars, then you start breaking the price barrier compared from boutique cash shop to AH market values, given consideration to potential market changes.

I designate d.orb duty to scrubby \o/
This is an poorly formatted "guide" that can cost people who don't know any better (the usual target audience for guides) a lot of money. There has never been a time when making 10* orbs from scratch was a good idea and by inserting them into your formulas without pointing this out, you are steering people into bad decisions.
The guide on PWpedia is much more useful. It clearly shows how to make individual orbs while explaining the best way of doing so.
For refines +1-4 and I'm told even +5 just use mirages. Soooo much cheaper than using orbs. On a g16 it cost 5 mirages for a refine so my theory changes on high level weapons. There I would use mirages for +1-3 only. Once you get that level of refine you can start in with the orbs where this guide may be very helpful.
i just used it guide and it is awesome, so TY very much Kado, great Guide, a Mode should make this thread like locked or something

Awesome guide Kado b:victory. I have used this guide each time i made orbs.
Some people need to know how to make lvl 1~4 orbs to make higher orbs b:chuckle. Only when orbs are 4.5 silver for 1* is it cheaper to use orbs usually, no matter what the gold price.
Btw, just a side, would you like to add this for 11* and 12*, rather than making a 10*, just buy one, and this will reduce the cost of making 11* and 12* considerably compared to going from scratch. Just a thought.
