I remember I think reading something a long ass time ago saying to usually shop at I think level 28? Since thatís when the better stuff comes in. Iím probably wrong about the level.

So the question is would the best time to buy all of your aeq right before youíre about to start your first pro season when you have all your saved up bts from the beginning or to buy them as your dot progresses in the middle of his career?

I have a few dots from way back where they had decent careers kinda and I bought aeq but I was young then and had no idea what I was doing lol.

1 Option - Lv 1 - 10
2 Options - Lv 11 - 20
3 Options - Lv 21 - 30
4 Options - Lv 31 - 40
5 Options - Lv 41 - 50
6 Options - Lv 51 - 60
7 Options - Lv 61 - 70
8 Options - Lv 71+

Build EQ Cost
New Item = 15 BTs

Attribute Bonus
+1 = 12 BTs
+2 = 25 BTs
+3 = 50 BTs

With Bonus Ability:
+1 = 30 BTs
+2 = 60 BTs
+3 = 90 BTs
+4 = 120 BTs
+5 = 150 BTs
+6 = 180 BTs
+7 = 210 BTs
+8 = 240 BTs
+9 = 270 BTs
+10 = 300 BTs


with that said, i do not typically shop until my dot reaches lv 51 for the six options

Personally I don't even shop anymore. If you have your heart set on gambling with your build...

You can usually take a swing or 2 for the fences at 31.

Try again at 41.

51 is the best time. You'll be right at that age that if you're going for a 4 AEQ build, you'll have to switch to Light training. If the math isn't working for a 4 build, you'll know you have to step down to a 3 build.

Definitely not 28... if you wait 3 more levels, you jump from 3 items per roll to 4 items per roll at Level 31. That's worth being patient.

Basically, the longer you wait, the more pieces you'll get per roll... but the less flexibility you'll have because at higher levels, you'll risk running out of time, training points, and Bonus Tokens.

I've also seen multiple people over the years claim that you get a higher percentage of "good" pieces when you roll at lower levels... and at higher levels... and at mid levels... but with so many competing theories and such thin evidence to support any of them, I'm pretty sure there's no difference.

51's probably a good level... gives you the best of both worlds. Enough pieces per roll to give you more options, and enough time to fix things and adjust your training if you have the worst run of luck trying to roll good pieces and decide to just build them instead.

You can also budget yourself: 5 rolls at Level 31, 5 rolls at Level 41, 5 rolls at Level 51, 5 rolls at Level 61, etc. Lets you start early but still gives you some flexibility and some later-build rolls to get extra pieces.

Lots of different ways to do it, and lots of ways to make AEQ work, so it's hard to pick one "best" way. But one thing I DO know... the WORST way is to go into AEQ with no plan at all. That's a recipe for failure. Whatever your plan is, HAVE a plan and STICK WITH IT.

I get most shopping done at 31 - good tie to find 5% or +3 attribute pieces

One thing to keep in mind is that this looks linear but it's not.
You hit 11 in the middle of your first season. You hit 21 early in the second season, and 31 late in the second. 41 comes near the end of the third season. 51 comes late in the 4th season, when you're 160 days old. Then it takes about 100 more days to get through the last 2 tiers before you're maxed on options.

Those off seasons are a good time to shop and reevaluate your BT needs anyway.

As you can see by the posts above it's hard to pin down a 'perfect' time to shop for AEQ. For sure never before level 31... but after that my advice is this;

I always START at level 31.... if I have enough BT's saved up (which I usually do). I won't shop with less than 136 BT's in the bank. Why? Because is costs 125 BT's (max cost) to create a piece... and it costs 12 BT's to do 4 refreshes per shopping trip. Why 4 refreshes per trip? Because every time your dot cycles through a Multi-training session it get's 12 BT's. This way I not only self limit my attempts at AEQ but my BT bank remains always full.

Over time I've found out that getting quality pieces when shopping is very much random. It's random as to how many refreshes you might need... it's random as to the piece quality per refresh... and it's random as to when is the best time to shop. Because of that and the limits I put on shopping... such as never spending more than 48 BT's shopping for a single piece before I give up and build the remainder of my AEQ (however many is left to get after shopping)... if I don't get quality within the 1st 2 shopping trips (8 total refreshes)... then I wait until the next increase (start at level 31... next increase is at level 41... then 51... as Sugar Kapaa posted) before I shop again.
Very rarely has this method not worked and I've had to build my AEQ... but be both aware it can happen... and prepared if it does... and you won't be as frustrated when shopping for AEQ.
