Something I haven't read with this update is how it might/will change the cost of items in Eorzea.
So far costs have been (mostly) dependant on shard/crystal availablity and the cost of the same (with the exception of high rank synths and the ammount of people able to do them).
There is a few changes in the current update that I forsee will impact on these costs:
-Increase in shard/crystal drop rate.
-Decrease on shards/crystals needed per synth.
-Almalgamation of +1 into NQs and +2 into +3s.
With the inevitable flooding of Shards and Crystals into the market I think prices will now depend much more from quality and quantity of mats themselves than the shards/crystals.
As a meadium, low level Armourer which has't played the supply/demand part of the market I'm wondering how people things these changes might affect the market.
