So here we are again........ Given the fact every player requires literal hundreds of both types of stone to upgrade/downgraded/upgrade gear the fact it takes me on average 2 hours to gather 2-5 stones is detrimental to mental health. Add to the fact after using all my available energy I have to wait days for all my toons to recharge or buy energy pots. Strangely enough it is actually faster gathering the bloody things than it is to buy off the market. Spent 2 hours the other day trying to snipe them and got a grand total of laughed at. I put a buy order for twice the market price and still couldn't get one. Why is this? 1) Drop chance extremely low. 2) Demand extremely high 3) New player joining 4) New classes added And so on and so forth........ If the stones were back to the 4-8 million base price they were originally they would be sucked off the "lottery market" as they are now and likely have 12 million+ buy orders. These are not esoteric resources, they are required by every single player and in large amounts. Restricting the addition of these stones adds nothing but frustration to basically every player except life skillers and afk gamers (derp). It is probably the most frustrating thing in the game for me. Even if the drop rate on gathering was doubled it wouldn't be enough. How many of you spend a decent proportion of your game time running from tree to tree or falling asleep watching the market? All because these stones are required for COMBAT and are introduced into the economy by basically pushing R. Gathering isn't fun, it isn't involving and certainly isn't why the vast majority of player play this game. Due to the fact these stones are in such high demand, accessories that drop them from heating are held artificially high. A Tri ancient guardian seal and tri ancient weapon core sit above 500mil..... Higher than a Tri Serap. Don't get me started on the scarla necklace. Basically these little oversights are seriously break the in game economy Please DEV's, pretty please with sugar on top, change a SINGLE number from 0.2% to 0.8% or have them drop from monsters Valencia and above. Also remove them from heating accessories for the before mentioned reasons. Hardly original as posts go but we need to post 1000 a day on this issue guys.
