still in headstart. if after a few months, things were impossible to craft, then I'd say there was a problem. But really.... we are only a few days in . Wait for some of the dust to settle.
As far as I know, Trion doesn't award prizes when you finish teh game, so take your time and enjoy the journey.
Hmm. I have about 35-40 Rare Crystals. not that hard to get :P
There are NPCS that, with enough renown, sell you blue items. Granted, those items are expensive to us right now, but it may be a possible solution.
Nonetheless, i see your problem. For a lvl 24 sword, such a requirement should not be. Why break a blue one to craft a new blue one that might even be inferior?
And how many lvl 24s are ever going to see that sword? Why have it in game anyway?
I have a few in my bank left over and I'm on Silkweb, I'll help you out. Morena is the name I am pretty sure I'm the only Runecrafter over 225 (I was the server first 300 Runecrafter). Hopefully you are a Guardian

wow ... go play it ... it hands everything to you from the start
give it a week and let the supply build
Run more instances- that's the easiest way to get blue items... that will eventually get broken down. That and daily workorders... I've gotten plenty of mats... even 'rare' items that way. Only level 20 and I'm doing 4/day. Not sure what the limit is... but plenty of opportunities.

As for the WOW comments, give me a friggin break. I'm an EQ vet, i'm no stranger to working for my gear. The difference in EQ and this game is leveling speed. In EQ i didnt mind spending 3 days re running a dungeon at level 20 for 1 item because i knew i would actually get some use out of it.
When you can level 2-4 times in a day, relatively easily, in the 20's, there is really no excuse for low level blues to be that hard to come by. You've got recipes that take you pretty much doing every quest in the zone to get enough faction for, that then cost 1.4plat, and then you can't even recoup your money by making the item and selling it because all blue crafted items in the game apparently rely completely on a single crafting class to make.
The only valid argument i've seen here, and it is a very good argument, is that its incredibly early in the life of the game. I will accept that argument.
Once again to the people who used reason, logic, and stayed positive, thank you for your responses. The rest of you, go back to briarcliff and pwn some n00b carebears and drink their tears, or whatever it is you guys say.
