    Default Crafted crafting Items

    Hi , Ive notice that on the AH apart from mined or Foraged crafting components other rare crafted components are virtually non existent , For exaple components like Nightmare Ichor , Regal Distillate etc .
    I,ve actually been try to buy Nightmare Ichor but, havn,t seen any on AH .
    Also some of the prices for mats are a bit inflated. Considering its just a matter of simply farming them .High prices recipes are not required , say unlike Amenders and such like . So why are ppl charging so much .
    If you want the server pop to grow don,t make life hard for them

    Supply and demand, more like.

    If you're looking to buy certain mats, perhaps ask in the Trade channel when you're in a major hub?

    Prices will always be based on supply and demand. But availability depends on people bothering to farm or craft the items. In the case of the ones you mentioned, they are considered "old" and not relevant any longer. They are from a previous expansion, so the need for them is tiny and the effort required to make them is huge. This is normal for most games whenever there is a new expansion. People move on from old content, eventually reducing the amount of old materials available, while the new ones will be sold for next to nothing after a little while, because everyone and their alt does the new content instead.

    Auction house listing fees, which are a % of the asking price for the one who would list such items, make it non-viable to try to sell low-demand expensive mats, because they likely will not sell the first time they list them, nor the second time... and soon the crafter is at a point where they paid more for listing fees than they can ever hope to sell that stuff for.

    So your best bet is: ask in chat.
