Imperial Wootz IngotsFollow

I've been watching the market on our server for a couple weeks and that has brought up a question.

Does anyone have some insight as to why the completed ingots rarely make it to the AH? I know SE added these to Einherjar loot pools, so it should stand to reason there should be more being sold than I see currently.

Are they being sold in Rolanberry bazaars? I made a few runs out there and didn't see any myself.

The khroma Ore market seems to be out of control on the demand side, I haven't been able to get a single one for 300k in forever.

Ideas, thoughts, opinions?

They are often being crafted by the people that get em (or their friends), or being used by the people that getl the drops. It's like god drops used to be. They were not put on the AH, the LS crafters would synth them into vermy cloaks/cursed armor/etc etc.

Why do they not make it to the AH anymore? Here is why. They cost 881k for a crafter to make. That's like 19k profit but then AH fees will eat most of that. So there is no good reason to synth the ingots, there use to be then there was 100k or more profit per synth but now it doesn't make any gil.
