As for the mithkabobs higher priced in Jeuno, that is explained by the AH surcharge.
Fire crystals have come back down again, so you can rest easy, Syrian.
IMO, weekends are crazy-ish. Because XP parties are harder to find, people spend their time crafting and doing other "boring" stuff. Common ingredients skyrocket because demand goes way up, and quantities of goods for sale increase as well. By Tuesday, things stabilize until the next weekend.
The one thing on Seraph I have still never been able to grock, is why don't the dang big ticket items drop in price? Like boots, signa, hairpin and so forth. You would think that eventually they would make their way into more characters hands that need them, so then the quantity sitting in AH would go up and price down. But it doesn't seem to happen, and looks to the observeer as price-fixing.
On the other hand, we all have a hand in this as buyers as well. If we as consumers don't pay the price, it gets returned from the AH and they have to put it up again for less.
Come to think of it, maybe Seraph isn't so whacked, and we are just upset about high prices.
