Things have changed a bit since the last time I played, mainly crafting changes. I was around when the central market just came out and it sort of turned me off from the traditional crafting money makers. Things that you once had to farm for are now easily available, and easy to make items like simple tools and crafting clothes seem like a waste of time to even make honestly. This seems to have made it's way up to things like balenos rods, which I'm considering making. I recently made a bunch of metal solvents to just sell them for easy profit. I'm doing estimates and it isn't clear I will be making much more from crafting the balenos rods vs. just selling the solvents. Not to mention the time it will take to make the rods and there's really no shortage of them on the market.
