I agree that Ugdenblooms are too rare, it’s the only crafting material I’m always lacking.
But I don’t think a special vendor is really needed, I guess I’d just make Ugdenblooms available at the Coven quartermaster, and make Kilrian’s soul a guaranteed drop on all difficulties.
The drop rate of other materials is fine I think.
Farming blooms is good for health. Forests and stuff. Hiking. Best MI in the game.
As for the bazaar idea, I think the chance of Crate ever doing that is like the chance crafting Stonehide Stoneplate Grieves of Kings on your first try and then crafting the exact BoM you want and then crafting a copy of all conduits without doubles. And then getting 10 royal flushes in a row.
Ahahahaha! And it totally fits. He still has to save face as a preeminent Undead Lord but sav… err, sell his soul at the same time. So what better front than a Bazaar for various components? It’s genius, I tell ya!
Yup. The one logical reason, besides the whole input-outcome equation, is that players may be tempted to just find the easiest way to farm for coin (like the crucible, let’s say) and ditch good ol’ fashion farming in campaign.
PS: Omg, “fashion farming?” Well, you could say that gathering legendary items is something like that
