    Manastone Shortage...

    I see a potential problem with getting manastones in the near future.

    This is how it is on Triniel Asmodian side but may be different then yours.

    Phys Crit +13 are 150k+ each right now, +15 crit are not even on the broker and the manastones to make them are going up and starting to not show up on the broker due to the few who are buying them and synthing them up.

    I see it as a problem because if you want to socket good gear like abyss or 50 golds you need 10+ stones per piece so one person can go through hundreds per set but that one person doesn't generate half that much in their leveling career.

    I see these prices skyrocketing soon on just about every server if they haven't already...

    Thoughts?

    Not to mention the HQ rate on manastones when crafting is terrible.

    Not a whole lot of +15s on AH on Elyos Vaizel but the few that are up are 180-200k+. IMO, that's already a ridiculous price for a manastone.

    +13s are 85-175k on Azphel. There are a grand total of 10 up.

    The 21 +15 stones are ranging in price from 174k-250k

    I haven't sat down and priced stuff much since the bannings, so maybe things are on the up, but my initial findings using Ruke's spreadsheet was showing very minimal profits in selling hundreds of potions and scrolls (Like 10-15k where the stack itself could go for 350k+). I tend to shy away from sales less than 10% on material costs that don't go quickly, either. Took me 3 weeks to completely rid myself of a batch of 450 mana potions I made at one point.

    You crazy dawg, the reason +15 Crit stones aren't on AH is because they're in my inventory, been buying any that are under 110k for the past 3 weeks

    Now Godstone prices, those are something to bitch about

    I've lost count of how many 43 templars i see with fucking para godstones. They've dropped down to 8mil on Triniel but still.
