Ah, okay, thanks for the info. Helps explain some of the price. I would buy the mats myself, but I don't have a toon that can create what I'm needing. And yeah, no one did pay the 5M, the seller had to reduce it down to 3.5, which surprisingly, it looks like someone or (someones) bought both 27 armoring at that price. About 2M out of my price range. lol. xD Hopefully I can find someone willing to make them for me. I'll def cover the crafting price. Just wish I could get them sooner then later. :P
Yeah, you're probably out of luck for now. What happens is a raiding crafter gets lucky, then has to sell obscenely high because they know the first people who buy their armorings are cybertechs who will reverse engineer it and sell for lower (sometimes they even use a ticket-exploit to do so). Eventually, when multiple people have learned the schematic, it goes down in price. In my opinion that's why they're so high at the beginning.
I may be wrong though. Definitely not an economist.
