Well, this event is fun to some, but it's a bit grindy, unlike the game itself. The event quest is nice and fun, but killing pirates outside is tedious.

When games have this kind of grindy events, it stresses me out, because I feel obliged to do them in order to get their rewards, and it can consume a lot of time that would be better spent if these people were playing the real game.

When the event is over I feel relieved. Unless you are level 20 and bored to death of doing the same quests, getting rewards is not a good way to spend time, since they are not end-game gear most of the time, and you can't get level 20 gear if you aren't high level enough to play the higher level quest and drop the required gems.

We could be levelling up a lot faster doing regular quests, but no, everybody goes to the pirate isle and you feel obliged to do the same grind of gems and doubloons...

@(Unverified) I do admit, it's a little annoying that there really isn't much more going on except raids and SR/CC going on party wise at the moment. However, I am actually enjoying it a lot. I was to low level on the only character I really care for last round, but now I am the right level, so jumped in and am loving it. Granted, as a DPS based Falchion enthusiast, there really isn't much that I consider amazing available. That said, I am still trying to get a level 12 version of the armour to upgrade II(so close!) and then I think I will go for the Necklace with +attack and upgrading that.

Basically, it's a nice change of pace to have a goal beside leveling and cursing at the RNG when that one special item from that one chest in that one quest doesn't pop. Of course, I am still cursing the RNG because I know there is a rally good falchion available in one those treasure chests, but I also know it's an absurdly rare find.
