I still make lots of easy money selling black dye. No complaints. Keep my alts and friends stacked with potions and scrolls. And mats are all over wildermore.
What scholars need, though, is a reduction in the stupid time it takes to "read" a node. At max level, it's like a second to harvest ore. Still a good--what, 8 seconds?--for each scholar node. That's the only place I feel scholars get the short end of the stick.
