    Default Sharn Crafting Mats

    After running through the chains 5 times on difficulties ranging from r1-r8 I went to upgrade one item (emerald ring) to add con +21. When i got to the station I had less than 25% of the mats needed. So if i extrapolate that out I can expect I will need to run the chain over 20 times just to upgrade one item? I thought the idea of the crafting was to create flexibility to players, not to punish and created extreme grind.... if i need to craft 2-3 items per toon we are quickly looking at well over a hundred runs to get close to only 3 toons done. We already have farm the gear I'm not sure why we are looking at such a grind to finish the items. Devs...can we confirm the recipes are correct? When I look at the dampened mat it is requiring 5 of the ignots that also require 5 of the mats that fall in quest. Is it really intended to be so many?

We'll kick the recipes to where they should be (it'll be a very large reduction) for an upcoming patch - I've gotta flip a few other things around for the general flow as well.

    And shepards we shall be, for thee my lord for thee.
    Power hath decended forth from thy hand so our feet may swiftly carry out thy command.
    And we shall flow a river forth to thee and teeming with souls shall it be....
