Fix Alchemy and stones.

Who thought that the change to modify alchemy stones to only take high end materials was a good idea???  Alchemy is already nerfed to hell for profit, and you're making it so only high end mats that are used for crafts are allowed to be used on alchemy stone????  Seriously?

These changes are completely unfounded... At the moment it's been put to where if you don't currently have a high ranking alchemy stone, you're more or less -----ed.  Completely.  Although it took a lot of ore to upgrade a stone, it was actually abundant and allowed people to try.  Now it's rare rng that determines your stone.... go back to the old system... who seriously thought of this?  All this did is put a solid divider between people that have their alchemy stones now and people that don't.

Now let's go to selling alchemy stones... they're already hard to sell... now you're making them harder to get AND sell with this change as you won't be able to upgrade them to a level people want.

on the one hand, doing this prevents a few people from buying out the entire marketplace of low-end resources just to dump them into an alchemy stone

on the other hand, what was wrong with Alchemists providing a demand for low-end resources hardly anybody ever bothers to harvest?

 

Good thing I held on to a big pile of plywood hardener...

First off I don't have an alchemy stone yet.

Personally I think it is a very good move to only allow high end materials to upgrade alchemy stones. These stones are supposed to be one of the last items you get after enhancing your gear and putting good gems in. It makes complete sense (to me) that it takes skill and thus effort to upgrade them, not cheap and super easy to get materials.

It seems that you dont know anything about alchemy stones, yes, the materials wasn't expensive, but you needed like 10k of ores to TRY to upgrade it, multiply it for 200 each ore, and you get a very nice number just to TRY, I say try because it fails a lot of times, to get a stone of second grade, it could take 2-3 milions in ores, and the price in the AH was 3M. So the only way to earn some money, was to get a rare one, and that a double upgrade, or triple, so keep counting money, it was too expensive and not rentable, now it's -----ing impossible to get one stone up.
