For the Savant crafting level 375-405, Why would you craft Abiding Thwarting Rune for 3 Capricious Stars and 1 Essence of Reverie, when you can craft Fine Unwavering Rune for just 3 Capricious Stars? You'd save 1 plat per craft.

From 405-435 it is cheaper to craft Fine Weapon Rune-Rune of Wisdom. It is still 6 Capricious Stars, but only 1 Essence of Reverie instead of 3 per rune.
