Soooo way to go - how to break alchemy: let app 1 upgrade all stones, use ingots/plywoods to upgrade stones and lastly making blue elixirs now takes 3 green elixirs (same as before) and a blue reagent that costs 50k silver . . . .wtf  seriously screwed up - 3 green elixirs (27k silver) plus 1 blue reagent (50k silver) = 1 blue elixir 52k silver wtf

eh... I don't really mind; alchemy has always been the life skills that costed more, tis a hobby for the rich after all. I'm sure you can make plenty of silvers another way.

this makes me kind of grind my teeth, while I leveled alchemy strictly through Pure Powders and Liquid Reagents, mainly for the advancement quests, I did try my luck with making a few alchemy stones and all of them were poo. Knowing that new players will have to grind less to get something I spent hours and energy on is just...ugh.

Let's look on the bright side though, it's a bit easier for us to obtain higher end stones now, no?

As one of the highest alchemy level players in NA I gotta say I'm disgusted by this change, way to kill a lifeskill, this is another proof that this game is ran by monkeys, obviously.

you forgot to take into account marketplace tax with and without value pack if you where to sell that shit on hte market, like many people USED to do before this patch to Make money. Now its a huge Loss to do so.

 

there was already a short supply of the good elixirs on the market because of recipe requirements, and with this crap alchemy is completely broken. now its not even possible to make money by selling on the marketplace. only idiots would buy green elixirs to turn them to blue now. its not even worth to make green into blue even if you made them yourself for yourself. not to mention you also would need ot upgrade them to party elixirs where you use 2 blue elixirs and have an rng chance to get 1 party elixir or 2 party elixirs, and with only one its a gigantic loss as you need 100s of party elixirs for node, terretory and guild wars.
