So it would seem that millions of you are embarking on your Zafaria crafting gear based on the scarcity of sand stone and stone blocks. I went through all the realms on Saturday and collected a few stone blocks until a full trip of the realms produced 0 (zero) stone blocks. It reminds me of the Zorg guy on 5th Element where he says "Zero stones, zero crates!"
THIS METHOD WORKS WELL ON FREQUENTLY ADDED ITEMS THAT ARE GOING TOO QUICKLY FOR REGULAR BUYING
Here's what you do:
1) Spot the item in the list that you want and click buy multiple (it will have already been sold out by the time you even see the item so don't stress out)
2) Click the slider on the buy multiple to the maximum or as close as you can. Clicking it one at a time will take forever and will only frustrate you so just click in the bar near the right side of the bar near the Max marker.
4) Click on the Buy Multiple button again, and repeat steps 2-4 as quickly as possible. Sooner or later you'll see this wonderful message! (otherwise you're never going to see it)
I hate to give out these kind of tips because it means that I'll get fewer items in the bazaar when I'm desperate but given how frustrated I was the other day, I can't bear the thought of how frustrated younger wiz must be that can't manage to buy any crafting items they need.
See you at the bazaar until they add a good place to get sandstone :)
And P.S. for the people looking to find the Conga drum recipe... it's sold by the crafting guy in the commons of Celestia. Why does Celestia have conga drums and not the more well-travelled Marleybone? Hard to say but space aliens like music too! So keep that in mind when you start your crafting quest in ZF.
