    Avoiding calculating crafting costs with CDs

    Ok so to explain short:
    There is only one way to craft a Sha Crystal - which is the daily cd of 5 ethereal shards - which is pretty cheap.

    As my default mat price I use: min(vendorbuy,buying,avgbuy,crafting) - buying is just my own formula which also takes in a bit of dbmarket-data, no biggie. Unrelated to the problem anyway.


    This means that for mats like the Sha Crystal - where I craft 1 a day, but use and buy thousands - the crafting cost reflected is the cost of actually crafting it is the daily, cheap cost. Which is kinda true, since it's the only actual "craft".
    But, I don't feel it's very logical unless the produced sha crystal is actually the finished product you're going to sell - which may be the case for some junior goblins.

    So, options to solve this:
    -Fix the formula; either custom remove crafting from the sha crystal mat price, or swap out "min" for "first", which is what I currently do.
    -The option "exclude crafts with a cd from craft cost" does not help in this instance, since sha cystal can only be crafted in one way.

    Am I missing something?

    I really want to make a setup where I change as few as possible of the custom mat prices- I try to fit them all in one formula. If I must, I will -but in general I explore all options to avoid it first.

    Any suggestions, or should I give up and do custom prices for such items?

    Wishlist: Another button next to the old one that says "Exclude all crafts with a cooldown from crafting cost calculation, period."

    I would probably not use the crafting cost of Sha Crystals at all, since 99% of your stock comes from purchases, not crafts. So I would just set a custom price for them, whatever you have as your Shopping price.
