I propose an idea for Rare to change all of the loot in an original fort into humble gifts and generous gifts for a few weeks next season or in the future. This will help players (especially old school players) try to obtain the Mercenary Voyages Commendations (Bilge Rats - Mercenary Voyages). How about this event goes out during ... Thanksgiving?
An Idea for Humble Gifts
just release gift dig quests imo
I dunno why they are so overly conservative on some commendations while others are flooded with convenience but there is no harm in flooding gifts into the environment
The reason I would go quest over world event is more people will do it, you could flood world events with gifts and a sizable chunk of players will never even know it or focus on it.
Have it be a Larinna type of quest situation and more will participate and produce them.
