Default Number of Manastones that will drop

I've been trying to approximate the number of Manastones that will drop on Green, and estimate how that will affect prices of Manastones on blue when the servers eventually merge. Assuming constant poopsocking (almost guaranteed):

Evil eye spawns:
28 minute respawn
=~2 an hour x 24 hours/day
=48 a day x 30% spawn chance (approximating)
=14 EEs per day
X 7 months before legacy items cease
X 30 days / month
= 3024 total EE spawns
X 8% manastone drop rate
= 241 Manastones that will drop on Green

With over a thousand people trying to get one of these things, that doesn't sound like much!

How much do you think manastone prices will be when the servers merge? Assuming they're like 600-800k today, will they drop to 300k?

Add a factor for how many manastone owners will still be active players at blue/green merge?

Thank you Cen - my thoughts exactly.. . Holy shit. There are literally dozens of threads of people talking about how they are going to literally sit in front of their computers for 20 hours a day for 2 weeks straight, and this harmless thought experiment gets just absolutely lambasted?

Yikes.

There is no tolerance for math here. Math is not classic, it ruins the mystery that is EverQuest.
