In order to bring the jc writs into the line of something people might actually want to craft, either triple the reward, or drop the quality of improvement required one tier. Even with the improvements made to JC (and I'm a fan of everything from the dust in ore nodes, to grains from daily writs, to the improvement cost reduction) writs are still just a disappointment. I'd rather get a survey, because that at least is worth the effort. Anything over ~900g/voucher is lost money on PC/NA as you can buy anything you need at that rate.
