It comes does can the players afford to pay the high price, and the work that goes into collecting them. Before the farming, they required a lot more work, they were only found I think in mud, and on level 4 (I think) and level 5 and 6.
To go and gather you (general you) needed a AOE shovel, persisting pies and some type of brew. For those who were making the pies, 400c give or take a bit was a fair price. If you had to go a farm because you couldn’t go out and gather, not the needed skills, you buy the shovel and brews there because you couldn’t make your own, that was another 10k approx. for these items. Many did it because they could sell the yams and make back the cost and have enough to buy the shovels, brews and some pies. Higher skill levels, high in the attributes let you go faster and get more of the yams.
Now, with players able to get the seeds at shops and grow their own, they can sell the yams at a cheaper price and still make coins, no need to buy the expensive shovels and brews. Shop owners don’t have to pay as much for the yams or can even grow their own. Players know that and refuse to buy them at the high prices, so prices had to drop. It will level out, I think that 50-75 coins is a fair price because I know what goes into them the royal pain in the rear of making the fortified butter. THAT NEEDS the TIME ON HOW LONG it TAKES to MAKE LOWERED ( @james please, please listen to me on this, please) . Yes, my second peeve at the grind of making butter. 1 hour and 40 minutes to make one mass craft of purified milk, another 1 hour and 40 minutes to make fortified milk then I forgot how long it takes to make (will be doing so as soon as a batch is finished in being turned into fortified butter) then you can make the pies in the mixer then put them into the furnace.
It is a long process, so I think the price should represent that, but no more than 100 coins, 75 to me would be fair.
I know, too long, but when I was complaining, I didn’t totally understand how long it took to make the fortified butter, and that is the hardest part to me. You had to kill at least the stout goats to get the milk glands. Before farming and you can now turn the oats into milk.
