I see no indication that the economy needs more goods refined or crafted.

In fact, if not for refining in hopes of getting crits for gating purposes, I'd say we have far too much *refining* available already.

Crafting feels like we produce more than we use, but the surpluses aren't as ridiculous as the refining surpluses.
He who wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper.
