    @Sole, the brass telethon, silver store, and gold seedinvest mini automatons should already be working. if they're not, please bug the broken one.

    I don't know if that's what you meant by your post but

    Being able to change any npc pet into a conversationalist would have some interesting results lol

    I put a new store tag on the mini silver automaton. It should display alongside the conversationalists in an upcoming patch in the Crown Store.

    All (custom?) NPC's to have access to any NPC function would be awesome.

    Mini Automaton's also being able to hold a conversation and fullfill a shopkeeper etc would make sense in situations where multi role's are needed/desired.

    Yeah, would be nice if vendors got some of the conversationalist functionality.

    Blew my mind all over the universe when this wasn't how it was implemented from the start. Especially since the first iterations were the brass automotons... then we got a grand total of 8 mostly ugly NPCs instead of paying to activate our exiting NPCs.

    To be honest when I saw how it was implemented, I lost a lot of faith.

    Kind of like how we got 362 different mannequins instead of just patterns to apply to the crafted version?
