I think the ultimate solution to this is a system where everything
that can be dropped can also be crafted with only a few exceptions
on either end.

In other words, a few rare items that can only be found from
monsters and a few rare items that can only be crafted.

Then people can choose to either be a wealthy member of society that
is social enough to have connections, or they can be more
anti-social and rely totally on drops.
