Messed up reagent prices

The crafting changes have shifted the market a bit, but the price for most reagents are still quite bad.

Elik can never keep the rare items in stock: blood moss, grendelweed, diamonds, and black pearls. If he paid more for them, and charged more for them, he could keep some in supply. (You might not like paying 1200 for a black pearl, but you would at least be able to buy one if you wanted it that much.)

Meanwhile, Elik is usually maxed out with many other items: he almost always has 100 acorns, mistwood, and stone blocks. These items are overpriced, and he should cut the price. (He used to always have an oversupply of Nightshade, but it seems like more people have discovered how valuable that reagent is :-))

Ideally, he should always averable about 50 in stock, so that if some comes in and buys or sells 3 dozen, he won't run out or have to throw any away. (Actually, this is another issue -- Elik can keep 100 times more wands than any of us would want to carry, but now that we can hold 999 of each reagent, Elik can only carry one/tenth as many reagents as we do. Perhaps he should be able to carry 10,000 of each reagent in inventory, and try to average 5,000 in stock at any given time.)

This may help the reagent problem and sounds like a great suggestion.

Perhaps Elik should be given the Transmute recipes and, every hour or so, he could convert some of his common stuff into the rarer reagents. Granted people would still be camping out waiting for the diamonds and black pearls, but then they could appear even if no one was selling them.

If he has an oversupply of acorns, perhaps they could revert back to mist wood or some other system to even out his stock. I think it would be a good idea if he had a "clearance" or "inventory adjustment" every now and then. Especially on those Antique Wands and Ruby Slippers that everyone ditches as soon as possible.
