Sometimes I wonder what Gaia was thinking when they made things.
Like some of the formulas for Alchemy requires items that came from RIG items.
Now there aren't so many of those items around, & the prices are just.....burning_eyes
I was the same. I think I crafted one formula when it first came out...the orb aggregate because I had so many orbs from playing zOMG!
But I didn't like it nor could I afford it at the time.
Even now, I wouldn't do it if it wasn't for the formulas that requires nothing but cache ingredients.
When you get to level 1o, you get a formula to craft Crown of the Thrice Great.
It's a nice item, but requires items from the Alchemy Starter kit. I think it was 1o of them. x_x
