We've reached a peculiarity in our shards economy in the last few weeks, at least at is pertains to smiths. Given the current going price of Shadow (125k), Copper(150k) and Bronze(190k) hammers on the shard, some interesting things are now true. It has now become a better value, in almost all cases, to sell ingots in raw form than to bother smithing them into either Shadow, Copper, or Bronze hammers. This is taking into account ONLY the raw cost of the ingots themselves. If you take into account the opportunity costs (granted, most people don't conceptually understand this, so they can't possible account for it) then in most cases, each Sha/Cop/Bronze hammer you make and sell is actually costing you about 100k.
