i think i might restate this as "the people who are less content are those who liked well the group that previously controlled the supply of SS"...which is to say, players who had comfortable arrangements and supply agreements that suited them are, naturally, ruffled. i've seen no evidence that the aggrieved extend beyond that privileged population.

If the DEVs wanted SS to be made easily available to all, they'd have prolly made more SS mines. The fact that there are so few suggests that this rare and potentially valuable resources is meant to be fought over.
the devs implemented the crafting system in its entirety hoping for "friction" or some similar thing. not necessarily fighting, as GM Stormcrow later said, but scarcity is intended to give us something for which to compete.

If it was really scarce.  There's far more SS out there than there are the salts needed to make anything you can make with silversteel.

So basically you have just given Heman an idea for the next item to be controlled. Will be fun watching you all scream when he controls the salt trade as well.

That would be difficult - Silver steel is only found in 10 mines in fixed locations, salts are harvested from dead elementals and they are in many and varied places...

Unless one wanted to make the argument that is the whole point of controlling the ss market given the most useful items made with salts also require ss.

There are far more high grade diamonds out there than could ever be made into jewelry.

If you sufficiently restrict the supply of silversteel you would expect the value of salts to decline.

This particularly makes sense for a group of players based in the southern continent, where there are no elementals to harvest salts from.
