1) Bring back guild stones and make them craftable with granite. I miss having them available. I know they have been out of circulation for a long time now. I'd like to see each GL have the option of having a physical Stone or not. Recruiting through the use of the guild tab on the paperdoll shouldn't change. I'd just like to see some of the "old stuff" brought back. 2) Of the three main resources that can be gathered. Wood,ore,and leather. Ore stands out as the one resource that can be lost after it is found. Even with the +5 mining gloves,a lot of valorite,verite,agapite,and even gold ore,on occasion,is lost. There have even been a couple of times that I have lost bronze ore at 105 mining. If the potential loss of ore through smelting is needed for some kind of balancing reason,then I'd ask that the stacks aren't automatically cut in half. Scale the loss by skill instead. 3) Speaking of Ores and ingots. I would request that the Developers look into the possibility of allowing us to create limited types of alloys. Steel and brass come to mind as two possibilities of what could be made with the ores we already have. It would be interesting to suit up a full plate steel armor and shield. 4) Imbuing shields. The available mods that we are allowed to imbue shields with is lacking. I can get a shield with much better mods off an ettin or earth elemental than what my legendary artificer can make. To me,this doesn't make sense. Please consider allowing the players more room to make better shields.
