I still don’t understand how cradle made this an issue?
Cradle drops lots and lots of 13-14* weapons and units.
People turn all these weapons and units into cubes.
Then they turn all these cubes into grinders.
Then they sell the grinders to an NPC for a ton of meseta.
Now people have lots and lots of meseta. They buy up all the popular items they like/want because they can afford to- What used take several days of farming is now only a couple of cradle runs. An hour or two, tops.
And so all the cheap/affordable items got bought up, and now the only ones left are the ones at the inflated price tag. That's what you're seeing now.
I hope that explains things simply enough.
