Another crafting materials thread ...(1)Category: PTR FeedbackJanuary-5-2014 7:22 PM PST (7 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
I've seen people complaining about the amount of crafting mats which drop, and I tend to agree - there's definitely an overabundance of some and shortage of others. I salvage whatever I don't use in town, and I've crafted a few things - typically one attempt when in town, because I'll only get enough Exquisite Essences for one try on a rare craft.

I also think Demonic Essences are also too low.

Contrary to other people's posts - I've got WAY too many Common Debris.

So in my stash right now -

1183 Common Debris
301 Iridescent Tears
13 Demonic Essence
5 Exquisite Essences

Hopefully that helps the devs understand the ratio this is off - I haven't been crafting like crazy, but something in this mix is off.

EDIT: I have created another thread in the PTR General forum titled "PTR Loot Inventory" - This details the loot I found from a fresh playthrough of the game and includes info on drops and materials found.

Thank you for putting together your feedback about crafting. Threads like this do help us find trends, and anecdotal evidence like this goes a long way to lending credence to common issues.

We're currently doing some tuning passes on crafting costs and crafting material drop rates. As I pointed out in this thread, there's a chicken and egg aspect to crafting and resources. Crafting will need to be tuned anytime item drop rates are adjusted, so it's often in a state of evaluation and correction while we're in beta.

Are you going to allow us to buy white items from a vendor as a level 1 & salvage them for debris?
Because right now it's the best way to get debris by far, only 50g per white item as well


I've seen this brought up a few times and want to give you all a heads up that it's going to be changed. Items bought from a vendor will no longer be salvageable in a future beta patch.

Also, thank you all for taking the time to test things out, and sharing your thoughts. It means a lot to us and has been very helpful. I've been keeping an eye on your feedback about crafting in this thread, and will be passing it along.
