I find that acquiring Kamas early on is too easy. Combined with a few other factors, it creates an odd economy where it's often easier to just go and mine Kamas directly than gather other resources and sell them, making said resources unreasonably expensive, if they appear on sale at all.
"odd" is a nice word. The economy is completely idiotic is what I would call it
Mining kamas is far superior to actually being a trader or crafter in terms of pure money. The only thing that kept me from mining my cash is how boring the task is. Then again there are bots...but we want to play fair, don't we? I have fun trading, especially the stuff I am crafting or buying stuff that is underpriced and re-sell it for more. Yet, I am making far less than someone with high mining and a high tolerance for tedium. Only very high level crafting stuff makes you some money, although that will soon change too with everything flooding the markets. So what we got is people earning tons of money way too easily and goods being worth nothing due to overabundance.
We either need another (not so easy) way to generate money or we need equipment sinks. In one way or the other the economy has to be shifted.
@OP: Just grind till level 40 and then use copper and manganese. Using your copper on iron is a waste of money.
@kilerama: Prices are falling not rising. What gave you that impression? I can see the royal sets falling from 200 to 150 to today 75-100 from what I saw. It is ridiculously fast. Same for national Riktus geard. Amaknian Riktus set was being sold for 10 kamas a piece today. A few days ago it was 50+
