Most of us got this in our heads at least once, that herbalist are at least now just a mix of a medic and alchemist that once you promote to cleric, would make other herbalists useless. And that he has nothing to do with herbs besides using them as ingredients.
What if he got more uses as a crafter, mostly related with plants? So instead of carpenter and potter crafting those potted plants, they would only do the pots, empty. Those then would be used as ingredient for all the potted plants, crafted by the herbalist.
This would make him (after cleric access) become more of a gardener.
What you guys think? Is that shifting too much their roles?
