The price of armored scales has risen grom 5 silver to 9 silver in the last hour, I think that it is because barracuda dropped them. But now is fixed:

I think they will be at 15 silver in a few days. What do you think?

"Hey everyone,
As Jeff has stated, this is not a bug – if you have further thoughts or comments about farming and loot, then feel free to post in the GW2 Discussion forum. This thread will now be closed."


So.. they back again?

No, he is saying that the fact that the barracudas are no longer dropping loot is not a bug.  Armored scales will return to their normally scheduled price... so long as the bots are controlled.

There at the price they are meant to be at at the moment, in fact I 'd say they need to be lower like ancient bone.   If Anet do add more Karka Dynamic events in SouthSun Cove then expect Powerful to drop in price as well.  *hopes*

Why would you want t6 mats to be cheap, it gives you a way to earn money. (farming them) when everything is cheap pretty much the only farm you can do is dungeons, excluding the trading post.

If prices are lower then people who want to craft weapons and armor can do it without paying inflated prices,  it's not just about making money on the TP, think of the casual players. Also people who want ascended backpieces who need 250 powerful blood for example, this makes it viable as well. Is someone really going to go out there and farm the living day lights out of them to be able to craft something? Probably not, they'll use Tp.

This. Crafting armor is completely stupid now, it makes max gear even harder to get, I thought I had it rough when I crafted my set, I was ahead of the curve at the time, so I bought my mats to craft my exotic set 3 to 4 days into release, when no one had those mats, but the prices now are just ridiculous, I can still run dungeons for my alt's armors, but I don't see how a new player is supposed to get those without a ton of grief and time spent.

The easier they are to farm, the lower the price they should be. You can farm these thing like it's nothing.

yeah i guess that makes sense, easy to farm cheap, hard to farm expensive but the thing is when armored scales where expensive they were really easily farmed in WvW so bots have a big weight on it aswell since they couldnt farm that area so well.

When I needed them for my legendary, I would get around 30-40 an hour in frostgorge from the barracudas


And that was when they were 20-25s
