Inspired by the unattended scripting thread. Randomization happened around 5 years ago or so - the randomized resources. A lot of people used to sell runebooks to resource locations, a lot of people could log in, do some mining or chopping and get what they needed. Now the output is not worth it for a lot of people. I know I used to chop a lot more wood (reflected in my handle) and mine a lot more, but now it's not worth my time and so I don't. In the old days, I could have spent an hour or two every week and mined and chopped what I needed, and even have some to sell to others. Now the wood and ore I get in a few hours just leaves me really pissed off. I still have a lot of resources from the old days, but I know that if I stick around past the anniversary, I'll probably run low. At that point I'm going to have to buy from somebody, and I have a feeling that whoever I buy from probably didn't get them honestly. Not a very good feeling. I kept the answers limited, but I did think about having options like "Yes, I'm a scripter and love the random resources"
