From what i understand, with the advent of guild halls, our profession is about to be destroyed. From a fan faire blog: The harvesting NPCs will be of a specific type (miner, gatherer, etc.), and you can tell them to go out and harvest for a certain tier of resources. In a couple hours, you can then check back in with him and get the results of 100 random pulls from the proper node type. What affect do you think this will have on us full time harvesters? I don't like it. Next thing you know there will be a shiny harvester npc, ack. Opinions?
