This will neutralize pricing items for sell at least for this particular armoring. If a crafter doesn't need the components to craft a hilt 27 I can understand a 3M charge. But 3M plus components...really? It takes no time to learn and craft the items. But regardless...karma my friends!! Be fair when pricing items..it doesn't take that much!!! Peace, out!
The free + mats thing is definitely awesome for the player base. I always tip. It has sort of ruined things for the crafters though, since you can't sell anything on the market. :-) Not that I'm complaining! My crafting income comes from other sources, but I thought it was an interesting observation.
