I am asking. With this recent wave of scripter catches etc ingots on Sonoma are about damn near impossible to buy. If you can find someone willing to sell, they are wanting outrageous amounts for the higher end ones. One of these amounts was 250 per for valorite. I can understand keeping the scripters out. That does not bother me one bit. Paying 250 gold for a val ingot does. Everyone on this forum cannot argue the fact that the scripters did control the market, but they kept the prices fairly decent. 100 was most you paid for an ingot. I would like peoples input on if they should or not. For the woods I have never LJed for them or really used them other than for enhancing. I always bought from the great BOD house that was every shard. Bought 10k each and have not needed more. So cannot really say much on this subject.
