The raven candles magic circle adds the followiing stats to your trap setup:
- adds 50 raw power to your setup
- adds 50 mystic power to your setup
- a 5% chance of gaining the mystery stat (an additional chance to attract mythic-creature ghosts on each hunt when you are using Nessy's Golden Reserve, Nessy's platinum, Nessy's supreme, or one of the Nessy-like members of the shadetouch family (Shadetouch purple, Shadetouch green, or Shadetouch blue) as bait
Efficiency (bait usage)
The raven candles is a burner that uses one additional bottle of bait for each hunt.
You can combine the raven candles with other burners or anti-burners to adjust the number of bottles you will use each hunt.
Burner use and strategy
Dealing with the burner aspect of the raven candles is a perfect example of the kinds of choices and trade-offs you must make throughout Virtual Scotland.
There is no correct answer — there is simply the choice that benefits your current goals the most (or the choice that minimizes the amount of pain you feel watching bait disappear). It's all a matter of taste and your current goals.
Many people prefer to use cheaper bait with the raven candles. They tend to see burner components as an occasional necessary evil.
Others will use Nessy's Golden Reserve or mocktails with the raven candles in their setup, because they are trying to capture a ghost that requires more raw power, more mystic power, or more something to catch than is otherwise available. Again, this is purely a matter of taste.
Only you know what is most important to you in Ghost Trappers right now, and that is probably the most important factor to consider to help you determine the best strategy for your own use of the raven candles.
