Four requests to the Developers I'd like to make

    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.

    Agreed.

    However, it would be nice to have some small difference in guild stone to differentiate those that have been around for a very long time.

    I like most everything you said. I'd like to add something...

    When you use colored wood to craft things you can then "dye" them using most any dyes available from tokuno dyes to plant dyes... can we do that for colored Ingots as well?

    There are 100's of items that "ought" to be craftable. From Marble tables and benches to the wooden benches and yes even those lovely pews ...... can we do something about that?

    I'd like to see a way to get more stone. And I'd like to be able to mine up rare chunks of Marble, so I can craft with it. Maybe we could even get some rare marble stone from lava fishing as well... And perhaps this might be something for a 120 carpenter... new craftables and such... and perhaps you can gain a 120 crafting scroll from loyalty to a town carpenter.... Just a few idea's roaming about in my head.

    I like the guildstone idea, it was always a status item when placed at the guildhouse.
    As far as other items I'm not sure #2 will ever see light due to the new items from the Void Pool. Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that there are items you can earn that offer 100% smelt rate for ore. Seems unfair that only ore has that possibility, but I guess it is what it is. Shields need more mods to choose from for sure. It's sad that I would rather run around with something level 1 Shame, because I can't possibly craft anything in the same ballpark. Shields need more mods available, or possibly even have the caps on shield mods raised.

    I agree. Leave the legacy stones with their one of a kind look as it is. What I am seeing in my mind would be like what we have now with stonecrafting. But instead of the new guild stones being just made from one type stone,the guild leader could actually create a schematic of what the stone would look like and what type granite would be used and where. The new guild stones should be constructed of three parts The base,column,and crown.Each could be made from three different granite types. Or if the guild leader decided to dye them with crafted stains and Tokuno or maybe even Haochi's pigments.

    Now that has some real potential. I'd like to have shadow iron granite stone walls. It would look like the stone walls found in Umbra.

    I pretty much LOVE all the ideas here so far, especially the ability to gather materials to build homes. And wouldn't marble be a wonderful addition for that... Furthermore, it seems to me that no "drop" of armor or weapon or shield should be more powerful than what could be crafted by a Legendary crafter (after all who the heck is back there behind the scenes making these pieces for a monster to drop? Get real, monsters don't craft stuff...) - but that's of course only my opinion...

    Some ideas I have been thinking about the last couple of days that pertain to crafting the guild stones.The guild stone should come in the different sizes. A simple one tile guild stone that is as small as the legacy stone.A larger guild stone that is two tiles wide by one tile deep.The largest one would be 2x2 tiles and be as tall or taller than a character when on horseback.The base could range from the plain block base all the way to the very intricate designs as seen in the 5th century Roman era. The column would have a few different shape options. Round,square,triangle,rectangle(for the 2x1 guild stone),octagon,pentagon,and hexagon.

    A few ideas of some images that could be placed on the column:
    ~Profile of animal heads. Mascot.
    ~Town banners,guild banners,all types of weapons,shields,or helmets.
    ~An image of each virtue.
    ~Crafting tools such as smith hammers.
    ~An image of each skill that is available in game.

    The Crown of the guild stone:
    ~A miniature statue of a knight,mage,dragon,horse,eagle,any weapon or shield,and an actual crown(maybe earned if the GL a Duke/Duchess of a town),and many other images could be used in many aspects of creating this new guild stone. Only the imaginations of the developers would be the limit to what could be done with this idea.
