i dont know if its ever been suggested but personally i think it would be pretty cool to have a profession who makes weapons such as Staves, Polearms, Bows and Crossbows.
the gathering profession to go with it would be (i think this is funny) Lumberjack, of something of a Wood Gathering nature.
it would work the same as any mineral or herb node. in areas you just gather different types of wood.
similar to a miner you would need a table saw (like a smelter) or lumber mill to cut different types to make a certain wood.
with the Wood Working side of it you would make the weapons i already stated and for instance a Staff would require a certain gem you could get from a Jewelcrafter.
its something ive thought about for a while considering ive never seen any profession make these things.
im sure some will think this idea is no good but i think it would be interesting.
