I have decided to finally pursue a legendary weapon after years of saying I would/could never afford it. I was stoked about the crafted precursor helping to bring down the cost until I finally found a solid accounting of what it takes to get that precursor, so now I'm not so sure its feasible anymore.
Looks like the crafted precursor is still cheaper than the purchased one, but it is not free by any means. Looks like I will be on this road for quite awhile even with my stockpile of crafting materials.
Has anyone done this that would have any advice?
