Considering scholars were used far more than metalsmith for crafting in RoR, we don't have much to complain about.
It is fair to me that the lvl 85 scrolls were one-offs, frankly, it takes 15 minutes to do the 5 wildermore survivors dailies, and you basically get 20 of the best scrolls as your reward if you crit. seems pretty fair to me.
You have to look at prior expansions as guidance. with RoI we were using lvl 66 scrolls for lvl 75 raids on scholar. and for Mirk/MoM, we were using lvl 50 scrolls for that content.
It is a fair trade off to use on-level scrolls at 85 with the requirement that they be one-offs. no complaint here.
