Saving Stones

Recommended Posts

After staring at the Skills section for 5-10 minutes, I've decided this post belongs "here" [*places it down carefully*], seeming that I'm after the opinion of advanced crafters.

 

I'm contemplating getting my 6th vegetal nexus. I have many ingredients for the extracts in storage. However, I haven't seen many saving stones for sale and if it is because crafters don't like making saving stones, I will not be able to sell Redefined Vegetal Mixtures and Potions of Power. Thereby wasting a lot of my time and money - not to mention a PP.

 

So is it that the Mixtures/Potions aren't readily available or is there another reason to prevent there being many saving stones?

Whatever the reason(s) I'm curious to know :icon13:

 

Thank you.

I had a very difficult time finding a steady supplier of the Mixtures, have one now. The emes are not in ready supply either.

 

I have made 72 of them according to my counters and will make them for anyone asking as the experience is good. There just does not seem to be a big demand for them (unless no one is asking me and asking other crafters instead?)

Well, I second that. I make my own mixtures obviously and could supply as well, since you are talking about vegetal nexus, I'd say this belongs to Potion though :P And for making money with Potion or leveling Potion you'll only need vegetal nexus 4 :icon13:

I have made about 34 of them and sold only 1.

 

A saving stone is like a NMT, something people don't go through often. People making low level things can't afford a saving stone (it'd be a waste anyway) and those making high level things aren't going to try too early (again a waste of the saving stone).

 

So who's using them? People already at the level (or near) a high level thing. Sort of narrows down both your audience and the chances they'll break the stone.

As someone who's finally getting to the point where I'm mixing goods whose ingredients are worth more than what I expect a saving stone would be worth, it's interesting that the crafters haven't been able to find buyers. The only reason I haven't purchased one or two is because I only ever see bots selling them -- and bots are almost always expensive, in my experience. I definitely could have used one a little while back: critical failed on some steel greaves and a tit shield :). Not only were the ings on those > 25k, they're a real pain to get.

 

Based on my sample set of ... me, it sounds that there's potential demand, but that it's not being realized because the mid-high manuers may not know the mid-high crafters?

Well, I've had people contact me because of rankings or word of mouth, it's not really so hard to find a mid to high level crafter :medieval: Just ask in your guild or look at the top 20 and see if there's somebody there that you recognize or know...
