I get that it takes 99 smithing to make, but why is it 36 hours of basically zero xp. This seems like probably the best way to ensure no one makes them. For 3 hours today I have gained 201 xp like jezz thanks rs

Masterwork is meant as a source of profit, hence the barely any decent exp. If it's made it'll be made by people making it for profit, not exp - I think the reasoning was if it was easy to make or give a lot of exp then everyone would make it in bulk and just dump it on G/E thus making it effectively worthless as opposed to how it does work.

A day ago? I was hearing just the platebody for masterwork was selling for 300m on its own. The helmet? 75m. I even heard that apparently the first set of masterwork sold for 1b.

Don't assume this is the costs right now because my source of knowledge on this is via talking to multiple people in game so it changes almost every day with each new person I talk to while mining. So chances are in several hours from now it'll be even different because next day (which was a few hours ago from now) I was told the full set of standard masterwork was selling for 400m.

You answered your own question in your statement.

The idea is to ensure not everyone is making it because keeping supply low keeps the value high.

So the idea of the smithing update is to stop people smithing. Ngl I was already doing that.
Also once again, just go to a different area if you dont like the "spam".

Nothing will come from complaining about it.
