At 8:46 in the first video Stephen Frost shows a 'gathering node' that is a plant mass. The loot pinata gives Spirovine and Spirovine seeds. Stephen then points out that the seeds are for planting back at your housing plot. So here we see gathering of Spirovine (usage unknown) and the Spirovine seeds that enable to create your own node of Spirovine at your housing plot. The concept I would hope is that once the Spirovine is harvested you have a chance to get seeds again, and then we repeat the cycle. This was mentioned by Jeremy but for me this was the first time I was able to put the loot of the active item to the action of creating my future node. So .. we all saw that in the PAX East press video there was a 'socket' that was a mine. Does that mean that one of the possible loot items from the loot pinata could be some sort of 'seed or crystal' that would allow us to grow ore? When I kill a big hairy monster that drops skins (like the pumera @5:41) could I also see some sort of 'pup'? that can be raised and skinned later? how awesomely evil would that be!
