    "Not enough black stones on the market! Not enough flowing in!".

    Reality is, there will never be enough black stones available when the demand is stupid high like it is right now, get used to it, start grinding for more black stones.

    On a side note, the situation will probably last a while given the incoming gear. Looks like scrolls groups will get popular again.

    Personally I rather like the depletion, ...it gives you something to do and work towards.
    If the market was overloaded as it was not so long ago, we'd just...buy and be done, which is ..meh

    Plenty of black stones. Hard and sharps are the issue for me at the moment. I guess it'll be one less field grinder resorting to "gathering" just to supplement my own needs. Less field grinder means less junk lifeskillers need to buy.

    I have like 3,000 of each in storage.
    I never use them because I don't enhance gear due to the frustration from RNG failure/success.
    I purchase all my gear from the MP instead.

    That's part of the economical cycle. People gather resources, others farm gear, people buy gear. Everyone is happy and gets a little reward for the effort that will benefit someone else's niche, as well.

    A minor hicup such as taking crutial resources out of the cycle, won't look good for some people having to enhance their own gear.

    Everyone is happy? If the forums and reddit are any indication, I would say the exact opposite. Most people are miserable.

    I'm also speaking in terms of when things are rolling like they should be.

    Implying Reddit and official forums remotely represent the playerbase.

    If anything the rather stable population displayed since early 2017 on steamcharts indicates the opposite of what you state.

    I'm too lazy to gather and just burn energy on Patrigo. There's my cheap influx of stones, and from non-stop fishing and relics.

    On average, only about 15% of a game's population use the forums, any forums. You ever notice how many "what's the event" or "where do I get that" posts in General Chat on patch days? Those are a sampling of the people that don't read the forums, and so, don't know. As an example, I am in a guild in DDO that has 200 unique accounts in it. Of those, only 5 players use the forums. In Aion, with only 8 unique accounts in our Legion, I was the only one that read the forums. What's said on the forums is hardly representative of what's going on in game. Using family names in chat in game is revealing too, since the biggest complainers seem to have a lot of toons to use for spamming chat.

    Yeah I hate gathering. I rather grind until eyes bleed which is fine with me. I want hardsharps to drop with grinding

    I just got 4,000 stones yesterday from scrolls; Awakened Kama scrolls are your go to. If people REALLY want stones they would organise more Kama groups.
