I'm sure this has come up so feel free to merge the threads, I do not come to this sub-forum often and I'm not going to read through all the topics.
I feel like eternal planar dust is far too difficult to obtain at the moment, and at least on my server the price has been driven so high on these dusts that it is inpractical to craft items with recipe's that include eternal planar dust.
It's not profitable to buy eternal planar dust because it is so expensive, sometimes even more expensive than the items you craft using eternal planar dust. With the nerf to corrupted / malformed souls, you can't exactly grind expert or raid rifts anymore, so you're really only left to grind regular rifts. And the drop rate is rather poor. With this item being in such high demand and on such low supply, the prices will only increase and unless changes are made using consumables become more and more difficult.
You need to re-think the recipes for a lot of these items. I speak mostly from an Apothecary standpoint, and it's terrible at the moment. For example, it shouldn't cost you 7 platinum to craft 1 black dye, but that's what the prices are right now. Nobody in there right mind is going to craft black dye when eternal planar dusts are so rare. I need to make consumables, and nobody is bying black dye at such a steep price.
I use black dye as an example because it's easy to see how out of control a cosmetic item has become, but the issue lies among many important potions that are becoming harder and harder to craft as well.
