    You can get back the wls you invest depends on how many stats you've purchased.

    Also, if you have the patience, you can always save the chems you've collected till pandemic happens

    You can get your WLS back, of course. Moreover, try redesigning the world, so you will be able to sell provider punches during carnival it sure gets a couple WLS each day (you could sell punches 30-60/WL last time I checked.)

    It's profitable, but farming 10 minutes a day earns more.

    ^ Not right.

    I have 6.6k science stations (Just for my own gain to get fuel packs everyday.) I’ve calculated that with 6.6k science stations I could make easily 22 Wls (If I harvest 2x a day) + the additional leftover red and green chems. (which can be recycled for gems). I get roughly 500 fuel packs in total from 1 day worth of farming in which fuel packs are somewhere 20-25/1 (25/1 is pretty instant sell)

    Not only that but I get around 12k exp from each harvest. I’d say it takes me a hour (all the 6.6k) in total to farm all of them without rayman (might also be because of the poor design.)

    Then we also have the Carnival and pandemic in which you can profit heaps by either collecting chems or selling punches.

    It’s relatively a nice investment indeed but it’s boring and there’s really no way around it since you have to watch your science station all the time so it doesn’t break the science stations nor, you don’t miss any of them.

    From my experience with science stations I can tell you that it takes a lot of time to profit. You would need to harvest them every day. I only made about 8 world locks a day from that. Eventually I couldn't keep up with harvesting every day and I sold my science farm. So my recommendation is buy them only if you know you have the time to harvest them. Good luck with this

    if you very diligent, and was able harvest on time (2 times per day) you can get back wl you spend within 5 week, full no miss.

    most people sell their placed science for 6.5/wl or even sometimes there 7/wl seller. but you must double check if you want buy placed, tips don't afraid to act like king xd. you're the buyer, if that person doesn't allow you to check science after you exit/kicked the world or something else. just leave, believe me you don't want to experience scam like they did to me.

    btw currently i own 2k science buy for 330, idk good deal or not xd. but i don't care i need for fuel pack, its hard to find fuel nowadays

    tips harvesting from me, if you use slime or sliding clothes (abominable or slippery coat) like me, dont use any portal its inefficient when collecting chem IMO. and also use chipper/rock hammer + cyclopean visor so you wont break the science station.
    if you can afford unstable tesseract, buy one for take all the green chem for saving time and not get bored (optional).
