I'm a Runecrafter among my favorites items to create is Astral Runes. I can craft doubles which usually yields me a massive profit , but lately, they've decreased in value. Because of this, I've had the need to switch towards Nature Runes which I don't particularly like to craft as.
I'm aware that Bonus Experience Weekend played it's role in killing prices of just the majority of items and yet... this is absurd. The current Market Price for Astral Runes is 121 Gold Pieces. This is 22gp higher than Pure Essense which is shocking to say the least. However, I am able to create doubles and so I would still have the chance to make a profit. (Astrals are up in the past few days but they droped from 125-121 this morning. It's good that I sold mine prior to the sale.)
