In general there seems to be a weak correlation between each of the attributes and costs,both when you consider every exorcist and the individual group. - For corporeality the mystics seem to have a weak negative linear correlation. The rest look like they have a weak step function - For sliminess the mystics seem to have a weak negative linear correlation. All except the Pummelers (Which look linear) seem to have a weak step function. - For intellect the Mystics again appear to have a weak linear correlation. The Slayers have a linear positive correlation, the rest seem to have a weak positive correlation. - For hostility the Mystics have a weak negative linear function, the Wraiths have a positive linear one, the rest appear to have a positive step function. - For grotesueness the Mystic have a weak negative correlation, the destroyers have a positive linear correaltion, the rest seem to have a weak positive step function.

So one is always negative linear. One is a positive step function for everything, the other 4 are positive linear in one, but have a step function for the rest.

But unfortunately we can’t have them all due to anoying guild rules.

When no slayers are present total cost is 48737

When no eliminators are present total cost is 48444

Max 3 pummeller restriction isn’t relevant yet, but destroyers are used. Re-running this when destroyers aren’t present yields the following results:

When no slayers or destroyers are present the total cost is 49934

When no eliminators or destroyers are present the total cost is 49162

So the money saved by the destroyer call out fee is worth it in both cases, and we don’t need to worry about the pummeler restriction.

based on this model the best choice is therefore: A: Spectre Slayers (1942) B: Spectre Slayers (1999) C: Mundanifying Mystics (2862) D: Wraith Wranglers (1887) E: Wraith Wranglers (1747) F: Mundanifying Mystics (2842) G: Demon Destroyers (1459) H: Phantom Pummelers (1804) I: Wraith Wranglers (1961) J: Wraith Wranglers (1934) K: Mundanifying Mystics (2842) L: Mundanifying Mystics (2783) M: Spectre Slayers (1857) N: Phantom Pummelers (1778) O: Wraith Wranglers (1747) P: Mundanifying Mystics (2775) Q: Wraith Wranglers (1513) R: Mundanifying Mystics (2940) S: Spectre Slayers (1686) T: Mundanifying Mystics (2821) U: Phantom Pummelers (1756) V: Demon Destroyers (1567) W: Demon Destroyers (1942) Total cost is estimated to be 48444

There is still quite a bit of variation, and I don’t think all of this is random, and if I was doing this for real I would definitiely analyse the data further to svae more money. As it is lack of time means that I will go with the above for my entry.
