dont see it getting "improved" there are very few limits now they removed energy cost on processes , those non automated ones i think are very deliberate to stop supply just going out of control, be it logs for boats , meat in cooking , bsp everything has one thing you cant automate.

myself i do mog daily scroll probably gets 50 rough stones a go. and just using marketplace buying any under 8k gems , decent processor is getting 8 ish powder a go

I finally stopped giving a f*%£ and ground down my black stone weapons.  They can give up to 99 BSP each and they literally drop. Off. Of. Everything. 

Some people called me nuts, but I'm happy with my 30k black stone powder in the bank.

That sounds like a plan.

Yeah, that was me before I started alchemy and crafting advanced cooking/alchemy stations.

"Any Remedies?"

 

YEAH!  ....if everyone would stop grinding up the GREEN common quality crystals by the dozen... and use Alchemy to make BLUE ones so they yield 6x the powder!

Ez, nerf junk crate exp 

That's fine for lowest tier Ore crates & Log crates ... but don't you dare suggest touching it again on my Calpheon crates!  Those things take me a while to process!

So as more and more players are getting large node working empires, more and more incredibly common "low value" items are becoming nearly impossible to obtain. 

@CM_Aethon @CM_Praballo  are there any plans to remedy this issue?  Like creating more sources for blackstone powder OR increasing their max price so that the marketplace can properly balance out it's value?  For instance having all mining nodes give rough stone as a bi-product when using workers to harvest them?

Dande and yellow accessories are bigger issues, u can grind for blackstones pretty easy but I admit it's a issue.

I adapted my economy so it no longer relies on BS powder.

Abandoned Iron Mine, elites.

This.

In fact, not just the elites either, normal mobs drop them better than most other places it seems.

I can fill my bag with blue junk crystals in about 15 mins.

There is a literally unlimited source of black stone powder in the game. It's a little more expensive than the market, but you can get millions if you want.

The shortage is ONLY for the current market price.

I wouldn't say there's shortage. It's just that the price has increased a lot. You can still get unlimited Black Stone Powder if willing to buy overpriced crystals or grind normal Black Stones.

Think one of the reasons for the price increase is the change in scenery. Mediah, Calpheon and Serendia drops loads of Magic Crystals. People used to buy those cheap to grind Black Stone Powder. But the only place left in these(lower level) regions where people still grind actively is Sausans. So much less green/blue crystals are being listed.

Also more people making crates and other items that requires Black Stone Powder.

Jewelry NPCs sell green grade crystals for 30.000 silver each. High enough processing levels will yield between 8 and 12, with an average of 10 Black Stone Powder, the cost is roughly 3.000 silver per BSP that way, making it a bit more expensive than the marketplace (2,7k), but has at least infinite supplies.

True :  crystals are better method in my case

at the end if you have high process skill you obtain 55+ bsp for every BS armor.. if you buy them at 165k (for example during event) , you pay 3.0k silver each bsp

it is a waste to use BS but at the end , like alterist said, at least you have infinite supplies (sometimes it is better than stop production process)

You get BSP for 3k even from vendor items... For cheaper go for socket crystals... Cheapest blues/yellows are easily in 2.5k range...
