How are Clam Gall and Powdered Mother Pearl not Purple/Gold items?

Their price is now 7K each to buy and they make purple and gold food. Their scarcity is crazy. They are green when all the other alchemy reagents are also green, but can be found in every zone pretty much everywhere. Makes no sense. Increase the drop rate or make them golds. I get golds more often from crafting than you can clam gall unless you REALLY farm it. I mean i even get scrib jelly from my automatic crafting items i get every day. It is also a green and used to make rare foods as well.

    I recently discovered how pricey and sought after Powdered mother of pearl is. Had 400 sitting in my craft bag I was never using. Decided to sell 300. Not sure they are that hard to get. I passively racked up 400 without even knowing I was doing so.

    I find that they drop better from Abyssal Geysers than from farming class, personally. Which puts them more on par with the reagents that drop from Dragon hunts and Harrowstorms.

    Unfortunately, that does mean that as less players do that content, we can expect less on the market.

    Because if they were higher tier ingredients, they'd be priced at 100k with Chromium.

    You probably got them during jubilee. I know that's where the majority of mine came from. They do also have a low drop rate in daily alchemy writs.

    They could atleast make drop rates for those higher then they currently are from IC parcels.

    Not really.

    Kind of too bad I'm not into the trader scene. For some reason I have gazooolas of both. I could probably make millions - as I don't use them myself.

    Why is Potent Nirncrux white and not gold?

    I actually wonder why MoP & Clam Gall are alchemy reagents, does anyone actually use them in alchemy?

    All other alchemy ingredients are green as well. Price has nothing to do with what color they are.

    A little.

    Quality tier is one of the things guild traders let you use as a filter.
    Being able to search for purple furnishing plans while excluding the greens and blues I'm already max knowledge on is something I find useful.

    Extending this quality tiering to other things could potentialy be useful for more precise trader searches.

    Hardly a priority improvement given how much of the game is still broken, but if it was a quick job to implement it then sure, why not?

    There is a text filter, just type the name into the box and it will show any that are on the trader

    Agree, i recently spent 500k stones on those bags. Rate was approximately, one drop (2-5)? per 100k stones. Way too low

    I know.
    I'm already doing that when after one specific item.

    The colouration option isn't used for that job, its to reduce the scope of a search to a managable size while still being able to find multiple desired results in 1 search.

    Think in terms of quickly looking for rare provisioning ingredients in several dozen traders by excluding the common ingredients, then apply that idea to other searches.
