I posted previously about the Fryse Willow mat for Reachmen furnishings being locked behind a group dungeon, but didn’t get much attention other than a “buy it in guild store” response.

Well, I am also concerned about the availability of Arkthzand Sprockets. I am seriously thinking of buying the Aerie when it goes on sale. Based on the number of Starmetal that I have used in Thieves Oasis to furnish it to half full (about 700 Starmetal at this point), I looked at my 100 Sprockets and started to worry.
I have done all 4 Markarth dailies for 30 days on one toon, and about 2/3 on a second. I have completed the zone content on one, and deconstructed all gear when I get it. Note that the Radiant Bastion set is in the style that uses the Arkthzand Sprockets, and deconning them will yield style mats occasionally.
One thing I have noticed is that the Arkthzand Sprockets don’t have a guaranteed drop from the delve and world boss dailies. I am fairly certain that Alinor and Elsweyr had a 100% chance of their style mats to drop. Why is this region more restrictive?
Also, there is the Voidcaller gear in the Nighthollow style that drops there, yet no style mats are obtained if you decon them. Same for the Witch-Knight set which is Wayward Guardian style. Will these sets yield mats from deconning in the future when Wayward Guardian motif pages drop from those dailies? What about the Nighthollow? I haven’t heard of any plans for that style to become available.
Is this planned, or just a huge oversight? It takes time to accumulate mats for furnishings and crafting. Can someone explain the rationale behind this, if there is one?
You are delaying the purchase of the Aerie until most players have already completed the content, and even when you get the house you will be unable to furnish it properly given the mats you have accumulated from endless grinding. This is not a recipe for player satisfaction.
EDIT: hmm maybe should have put this in the Housing Section instead
