This is a topic Domino brought up back before SF launched and kind of shelved until she could see how the market for adorning materials would play out. It's now ~2 months after SF, and I'm noticing that fragments still seem to be consumed much more than powders -- there always seems to be a glut of powder and a dearth of fragments. And when you look at the numbers required for items, we can see why. Consider that powders only come from treasured-type transmuting, and say you get about 3 fragments to every 1 powder. That's not so bad; after all, treasured adornments have a net requirement of 1 powder and 3 fragments. The issue arises in all the other recipes, where 6 fragments are consumed. For legendary adornments, it only takes a net of 1 powder -- now you're going through fragments at a rate of 6 fragments : 1 powder. Fabled adornments are a little nicer to that ratio, in that they take only 2 fragments for every powder (a net "gain" in fragment ratio). So treasured adorns take roughly what you expect from a treasured item transmutation. Because of that, the market size for treasured adorns isn't too relevent to my point. Now consider the reletive market sizes for Legendary and Fabled adornments; the high price of manas makes legendary a much more common choice for everyday adorning. So, for each legendary adornment made, you're 3 fragments "behind" the ratio you get from treasured items. For each fabled item, you gain 3 fragments back, but the market is much smaller so there's still a net glut of powder. Add on all the powder from legendary items and you've got a lot more powder now. We can turn it into infusions (and make legendary adorns that eat up more fragments) or even manas, but what I'd like to suggest is the thing Domino originally considered: a way to downconvert powder into fragments. Each other adorning resource can be acquired from conversion, except the lowly (but oh-so important) fragment. To that end, what I'd love to see is a recipe to convert a powder into say 2 or 3 fragments. That seems to be a pretty fair ratio to me, considering it takes 10 fragments to convert to a powder (of course, running that in reverse, ie 10 powder to 1 fragment, just seems ludicrous). What are folks thoughts on this? I've seen this overabundance of powders both while skilling up in adorning and at the high end in making T8/T9 adorns.
