Why is it that, I can mine full emeralds from nodes all the time, but the rare and valuable drop is just a shard.
Made this observation in 2007 with sapphire, ruby, adamant, and especially beryl shards.
Why, if mithril is the most rare and valuable metal, are mithril flakes only a mid tier crit item.
Give them credit though, there was no Mithril ore being mined!
Why is it possible to find shards, crests or Rohan, and flakes in some crops that you grew and harvested yourself.
Left over from days gone by, finally working its way to the surface. This is by far the most reasonable craft related oddity!
Why are wood nodes just fallen branches, even where there are no trees around. (Shouldn't the nodes be more like saplings)
Well I was a bit confused why there were no wood nodes in Forochel, seems like a dead limb could be dragged and left there, did it really need to fall from a tree?
Why are mining nodes named so generically, (Khazad skarn, eastemnet skarn, westemnet skarn, etc) but wood nodes reflect actual wood types.
There ARE more possibilities with wood names. After Iron and Steel made from Iron, there is just not much diversity in good metal. Bronze is far inferior to any ferrous metal and the other metals are used in jewelry. Titanium? Adamantium?
Why are cooks guild recipes just useless tea with horrendous cooldowns? Is there nothing else that a guilded cook can do? (Maybe some warsteed food?)
I could go for mount food that adds an extra 5% to mount speed, but does not stack on a +68% (or better) steed.
Why is the t9 scholar dye just a boring shade of brown? Did they run out of colors?
Will the last tier of mining have us mining full mithril nodes? Mithril being the best metal.
What would be the last tier of wood? Or crop? Or hide?
Their naming convention on even mundane trophy items lacks any cohesion or creativity. How is anything ripped from a corpse "Glamorous"?
There are lots of wood varieties left. I would like a tier 11 lute made with Spruce top and Ebony fingerboard. Hides? "Fricken Awesome Hide" is likely to be the best tier. Crops? They could start naming crops like ore nodes, Gondorian Tomato, Mordorian Onion etc.
