math is hard, when there are multiple factors that play into he real money to gear aspect of the astral shard ah
in ops post he states an established tp to pp ratio based on point code trades and other store bought tradable items and established pp value of those items
the asah bypases all these player dependant comversion means with a tp to shards to gear path
what value do you assign to that ?
straight math doesnt apply very well when there are factors such as conveniance,time and no hassle aspects that factor alot into the asah option of gear aquisition
