Why is Sunstone so rare?

Why does Sunstone so rare? 3500 Gold for 1 Sunstone make it one of the most expensive Reagents at the Bazaar. I remember for a time there were HUNDREDS at the Bazaar. I heard rumors of some fool who said Sunstone was way to common and that they should make it way hard to find. You know what? It's these comments that people say that ruin it for the rest. I heard the person who said this quit the game a month later. Idk if that's true but to me, that's just messed up. I'm not trying to be rude here but I think Sunstone should be a bit more common, just so I can see Stone Blocks not have a mad rush as violent as my state capital's Walmart on Black Friday.

Sunstone isn't that hard to get, and your rumor is just that a rumor. There's nothing to it. It's somewhat rare so people don't sell it. You can transmute it from Sandstone. Rare reagents are not going to be made common just because you don't feel like looking for them.

I agree that Sunstone should be more common. When I was farming in Zafaria for them I picked up over 50 sandstones and not one of them I ever got a Sunstone.

Hi.

I recommend you to feed your pet with stuff you don't need. In about few months i got like 200 of them.

The following plants when gardened, at some point will drop sunstone as well. But then again too many are not inclined to garden either.

Deadly Helephant Ears
Evil Magma Peas
Fickle Pickle
King Parsley

I usually buy Sandstone and transmute it to Sunstone but it helps to refresh the page in the Bazaar for Sandstone and Sunstone. There was one time where I was really lucky and was able to buy over 200 Sandstone but I'm sure that was just luck on my part.

Actually, I found the post last week, it said:

Why does sunstone need to be so common? For something that's a rare reagent it's not rare at all. They should make them much more rare. (The guys last post came out a month later on the small fansite was on saying he was leaving because he got out of college and wanted to begin life)

Yes I transmute Sandstone to Sunstone, I'm not stupid. I look for them as well, I farm reagents, I've stone block farmed and Sandstone farmed Stone Town and Ore farmed and Parchment farmed and even farmed spiders in Savastaard Pass for Spider Webs, yes, you read it it was for a recipe. One if the few things that goes over my line in Wizard101 are insulting my Retired Frostzilla and calling me a lazy player.

I agree with you they should be a little more common and cheaper. I am on a crafting quest right now which requires me to use Sunstone and it's making me bankrupt trying to get more!
