    Okay, hate sounding like a hung record, but the event is pretty much done in my case, my boat just isn't good enough for the event . . and I simply don't have the pearls to chase the event, I need what pearls I have for castles and talents, but it was fun while it lasted though, damage vs event hp just isn't worth the prize drops.

    This is just my opinion, not trying to flame the event, good luck to those who can keep up with it and the nifty skins earned.

    Yes loot of 60 crystals (60*220 = 13.2k worth in pearls) is really bad for 25m hp. Last event was 18k pearls for 9m hp (i.e. 2.78*18k = 50,000 pearls for 25m hp), and that was a bad payout in comparison to other events. The NPCs was also much easier to kill last event and no risk of killsteal. I only think a few players will participate heavily for the 3 emperor bags at #1 except for whatever is gained from sniping from noobs trying to do the event.

    The shipwrecks are however decent in my opinion: Crystals, 60p lvl 1 and especially Hailstorms. This is decent preparation for next event.

    And the ammo from shipwrecks will work well with kraken.

    The quests can be worth it though if in a good team. 20k pearls for 1 vial and one knife is good if with 6 or 7 people and 60k pearls for 10m dmg on Romeo and 10m dmg on Juliet is also decent. I'd say the daily quests is like 50k profit if done in a good and large team.

    It would seem avoiding events is the current trend.
    And I'm particularly glad that I did not participate.

    Yeah Lady.Wolf. In some way though, this event is particularly spicy since Seafight made those offers right up to the event of 1 weak of commonwealth officers lvl 2 for 17500 crowns ea. A couple of my clannies bought the officer for extra dmg and hit chance. It's surely unintented on Seafights part but they kinda made it seem like this was a NPC event while it ended up being the comparably least attractive time to have increased NPC strength since there's shipwrecks.

    OK I might be too optimistic, but I have a question for the players who shoot this event: has anyone actually won the black rose design? I have shot 51 event ships so far, and no luck. I seems the success rate is in the range of 5/100 (I would suppose 1/100 is perhaps more accurate).

    When I shoot the event ship, I use a combination of level 2 Commonwealth Guardian (which I can get for almost free by boarding the HRMS Surprise in maps 23 and upwards) + level 1 Agility trainer (10,000 pearls for 4 days covering the event). The event ship's damage is around 4.5k using Agwe's armour plates, which allows me to shoot down 1 event ship without having to be repaired.

    for the record I got the Black Rose after sinking 67 event npcs. So "small chance of winning" starts at 1/67.

    Although the original Valentine Event topic has somehow changed to the Chinese New Year Event.

    The chances of winning the Black Rose design are purely random and must depend upon luckily finding any Dragon ship containing the Black Rose design code. I wasn't particularly bothered whether I won this new Black Rose design or not, but by sheer luck it was gained just by shooting the second Dragon on the first day of the event.

    Lottery ticket next? :)
