I calculated the cost of the items to make Nomy the Snail, and that is so much more gold than what Nomy the Snail is even worth when you sell it. It seems like this Alchemy thing is kind of a waste of time and gold.

YUP! Definitely.

Fault on two parties.
Gaia themselves for asking a ridiculous amount of items. 50x something etc.
Users for the inflation of those items -_-

You're paying for the alchemy experience points.
You can also say you're paying for the fun (or "fun" ymmv as to whether it should be quoted) of crafting items yourself.
But mostly, you're paying for the (eventual) ability to make things that only come from Alchemy.

How do users cause the inflation?

Not if you craft the good things (philosopher's cache, alchemist's case and orb aggregate).

Users are the ones selling the items razz The people who sell the items you need to craft the items are ridiculously priced.

Oh, so this is all comes down to an endless cycle of greedy people. Gaia makes things more pricey because people keep selling things more pricey. We keep selling things more pricey because we want gold and to afford those other pricey items. I think I get it now.
Why can't we all just calm down and make everything affordable? User Image
