I just went to alchemy and bought a Formula 1: Angel Imp Potion A for 100 gold This is my first time. HAve no idea what I'm doing.
I'm broke and that was in my budget but now it says that it cost 2,500 to craft. But it says
I need three angel imp potions and two cherbub feathers which both cost wayyy more than 2,500.
What do I do?
Cost to Craft has nothing to do with components. Once you've gathered the three angel imp potions and two cherub feathers, you will then be able to try crafting the item, a process which will - in itself - cost 2500 gold per attempt. Luckily the success rate for this formula is Very High so it should only take one attempt.

...or you could sell the formula if you've decided you don't want it, and try one that has less expensive components, like the Orb Aggregate or the Giant Rainbow Lollipop.

A little question about alchemized EI's. Can they be used for crafting in formulas where EI are needed? If yes, is it every formulas or just some of them?

You can use the Alchemised EIs wherever there's a formula which calls for any EI. I believe there's actually a few things which specifically ask for the Alchemised version, such as Faustine's Bottle. Lei Trigar's formula thread covers whether a particular formula calls for specifically Alchemised versions, or if any version is okay for crafting.

I know Lei's thread and I really heart it. I'll double check with him then to know if there's a difference in the way they are written in his thread then since some of then have (Any) and other doesn't. Thanks!

I've made some minor textual changes to hopefully increase clarity & updated a few links.

Hmm. I think I might dabble in a little alchemy. I need to put my hoarded trash to use.

I just have 1 question, I have about 87 radio havoks
and i just wanna know, is that even worth trying to craft
anymore? I dont see many people going crazy over that
item anymore.

Is it even worth all the effort?

RIG formulae are really only useful to the die-hard gambler who likes to keep on playing. You'll almost definitely get more gold from selling the components (the fail items) in the MP than you would from making & selling the RIG. Once a RIG is more than about 6 months old, the interest tends to die right off, as we Gaians are always chasing the new shiny.

So, I would say that it's almost definitely not worth crafting any Radio Havoks (or any other RIG formulae).
