    Just wow--Been away 7 years and come bac and all my runes for mining and treasure hunting are borderline worthless!! Ok price check on ingots--i see colored ingots going for 10x what they used to go for. And any backround on why copper is so expensive and bronze is so cheap--i dont understand......

    Price check on lets say 1000 ingots of each color- price for each individual color please--Atlantic shard if you may, but also very interested to hear about other shards--

    I AM GOING TO BE RICH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Because of what bods people want to complete. Right now Copper hammers in demand due to reforging, more so than other hammers.

    See my thread here where as part of the chart I put in some estimates for ingot prices based on what they are selling for across shards (averaged).

    Bronze hammers are almost as good as copper, and those are possibles. And, shadow hammers from normal copper BODs, as well.

    Personally, my big shortage has always been DC ingots - I can't mine or buy them quick enough for the amount of BODs I get
