Please rebalance ascended trash material drops a bit


I open my bags on a level 53 character. Doing this gives you plenty of dragonite ore and empyreal fragments. But bloodstone dust will only drop on a level 80. Why? Whats the point of this? Just let it drop at any level. Farming bloodstone dust, despite being easy, will cut your profits from bags in half. Its such a waste of time.

    Get out of SW farm, lets say to AB meta or any other possible meta there is, get drowned in bloodstone dust, make a house with bloodstone brinks.

    Dragonite ores and Emp Frags don't drop from bags BTW, they come from bandit chests.

    Mr. Z, open this gate. Mr. Z... Mr. Z, tear down this wall!

    Yes, unfortunately, this game still has some semblance of seriousness to it and you might have to forgo certain types of loot to acquire others.

    I hate to break it to you but unless you find farming ingame fun it is far less efficient than gems to gold or TP flipping. From your drops it looks to be from Silverwastes.
    You could just delete the excess accountbound ascended materials if they bother you so much.

    IMO if Arenanet wants to increase gem sales they ought to limit Silverwastes drops through diminishing returns and dropping the 150% MagicFind boost but that's going to be an unpopular opinion. There was a whole bunch of people complaining about Istan nerfs.

    You can manage your stockpile of these things pretty easily by feeding the numerous conversion items as part of your daily routine. I sometimes use the gear loot from them to complete the Mystic Forger daily or set aside the loot bags given by them in my bank until I need raw materials from the items inside.

    In that case, don't farm bloodstone dust. Unless you actually need it, in which case farming it would not be a waste of time because you actually need it, or?

    Stop breaking everything down to gold/hour or accept that specific account bound materials might require taking a hit in gold/hour gain. It's called balanced rewards, or else everyone would have to no life out of Silver Wastes.
