From my (Bad) experience in the previous event I will advise everyone:

1) Log on and off every single day and not expect the seal to Stack. 

2) If in the end you missing one seal because the dates and hours of the event don't align properly with your Region (NA/EU). Do not delete the remaining seals or go for fewer rewards. Just create a ticket and wait. (It took them more than a week to come back on me on the last event)

It was in the beginning of me playing the game. I needed the space so I took another reward only to see them responding to my case after 10 days. I have created a forum threat as well on this issue. It took them days to decide what to do. So yea help some ppl but unfortunately not myself :(

So... we get fishing boat and penguin but the fishing skill is ruined because you can't count on any of the nodes to sell the fish to.  The scarce seagull fishing hotspots only last 10 mins.  There aren't enough in the zones where we have nodes.  I have a node network that spans the entire coast from Velia to Epheria.  The fish won't sell anywhere for more than 30% because you can't ever know what node the spots are associated with or count on the hotspots that are very scarce.  

In other words... fishing is a waste of time.  A HUGE time killer.  And after filling your bag / boat...  you get 30% for gold fish.  

Fishing is dead.  Giving away boats and pets isn't going to change the fact its worthless now.  (Artisan 5 fisher that has fished from day 2 of the game... but not anymore.)  

This is the cue for Daum employees to make up fallacies that don't work in order to make it seem like its an okay deal to ruin everyone's life skill who chose fishing.

Fishing is not totally worthless, you can still get lucky and get rare fish along the coast of velia and other easy spots while afk fishing (artisan 3 here).Just before the update, my last over night afk fishing left me w/ a full inventory of mostly rare fish, same w/ the night before, but before that just all blues and greens. Hit and miss now, but i wouldn't say worthless. Still a great source of income for newer players :)

And just like the meahwa event, you can keep them accumulating in your rewards without claiming them until you have enough to make the pattern

PSA:  Don't ----- up the seals.  You only get to lose one seal if you want to get the 12 seals and the 8.

@CM_Tytyes the quest for the scarabs requires 50 and 150, is this correct or are the patch notes how it is supposed to be? I don't think anyone wants to sit in one place and dig for an hour, so I hope that 10 and 30 are correct.

Also, I just did the math and if we really need 200 of these, and it takes 20 seconds to dig up a scarab, even if we pretend that the time it takes to claim the items and start digging again doesn't exist, it would still take almost 1 hour and 7 minutes of doing nothing but digging. No one wants that.

Edit: Time probably goes down if you increase your gathering rank, but it's still more time doing something boring than I'd prefer. I would recommend changing the number down to what it says in the patch notes, but make the drop rate lower for the scarabs (it is currently 100%). At least that makes it seem like you are actually hunting for them, not just sitting in one place hitting a button over and over.

The collection events have all been pretty time consuming. These type of events seem to be designed for players who play a lot of hours, since anyone who doesn't must dedicate all their playtime to completing it by the deadline (effectively putting their progression on hold for weeks).

I'm find with spending a lot of time on the event, my issue is how boring it is. With the eggs you had to find them or fight mobs, with the petals you had to run around and gather them then farm them, with this soccer event you fight mobs, but with this one you aren't doing anything. That is my issue with it, it is a long time of doing nothing.

Do you get seals everyday you log in and if so how many do you get? Is it possible to get multiple penguins during this event? Also are the seals obtainable from enemy drops?

This is the cue for Daum employees to make up fallacies that don't work in order to make it seem like its an okay deal to ruin everyone's life skill who chose fishing. 

Yep, Artisan 8 fisher, hotspot hunter, yada yada. I'd stopped fishing as often prior to the change to focus on other areas of the game, but after the change I gave it up entirely (sold my rods, ship accessories, fishing clothes, etc.). I don't mind the movement of hotspots or the gulls that much - I can get why they wanted to balance it. I don't favor it, for sure - but it wouldn't be quite so terrible, IF you didn't need a series of nodes for your catch to be worth something (also for distance bonuses). I didn't bother continuing to fish after the change, knowing my node setup wouldn't suffice for the (unpredictable) spawning of hotspots - and I didn't want to sink all of my CP in linking every island just on the off chance I happened to hit a hotspot in a certain zone. That's not to mention the additional issue of increased lifespan decay on fishing boats.

Most of my fishing guild moved onto grinding/siege/etc., and wound up forming a new guild to that aim (including a few Master ranked fishers - our guild used to hold at least the top 10-15+ for ranked fishers on our channel). Which is fine, it's just unfortunate to render that aspect of the game fruitless.
