Will this new penguin be available in the cash shop too? I mean, is it like a regular pet that we can breed to get a higher tier?

Also, what skills can it get?

The fish won't sell anywhere for more than 30% because you can't ever know what node the spots are associated with

LOL, of course you can know: read your minimap. It's that easy yeah.

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. 

Have you even bothered to try fishing outside of hotspots? I fish a lot better than before the patch out of the hotspots. Based on my experience I can certainly say that fishing for me is more rewarding than before. But I have actually fished (not much, just as always, because it's too boring for my tastes) after the patch, rather than just give up because it's the current trend of the guild or whoever else.

Just found this tweet: https://twitter.com/BDO_News/status/748128166095519744

It is a pet but it's exclusive and only obtainable via the event. Since we can't get 24 seals, there will be only one penguin for every player..

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)

Hmmm... Should have known this sooner. I had 10 Maehwa Seals because I got nothing on last day and on another day. But thanks, I will make sure to get my reward!

Not since the patch. But prior to it I did often in the process of spending hours on end hunting for new hotspots. I didn't give up as a "trend" -- as stated, I stopped before the patch even hit, as I'd been focusing on getting all of my characters to soft cap, and getting properly geared.

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 noticed this about the events lately. I did not get to finish the Pirate Rum contest because of this. Plus it was RNG DX

That was exactly my problem with changing hotspots.

 Some of the events are really difficult because of this. The Rum contest was over all of a sudden, at least for me. I was pretty new to the game and did not know what to do with the Rum till I found this page. Next to the factor time the rare infos in-game are very annoying. I'm not sure if I will finish the second part of the event.

Magic carpet and lamp if anyone wanted to see them before starting to shovel the desert. I think the carpet is awesome.

If I collect 5 seals and arrange them, will I lose the seals? I want to collect 12 but I don't want my seals to reset upon claiming a lesser reward.

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.

Yes gathering skill reduces it.  No one should be doing 0 gathering skill anyway, let's be serious here.   It took me maybe 10-15 mins or so tops, and that was about 100 feet from the quest giver.

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%).
 

Wait... so you're complaining that it takes too long and it's too boring, then you suggest that they change it from a guaranteed drop... to a random drop?  WTF?   So instead of taking a set amount of time, you want to possibly make it take even longer due to RNG?   Seriously?     Are you mental?

If you want the higher reward, do not arrange them in the correct way until you get the 12, because it will consume the amount of seals you have used to get the lesser reward.

I'm not even going to bother, no need to waste my time on you. Re-read what I said and figure it out.

Do you mind if I ask on which lever your Gathering Skill is? Just to have a scale to know when it is sensible to go digging. I want to dig for the scarabs when I reach Prof 3.

What are those crystals? I couldn't find them in the bddatabase. We don't get just two shards for 8 seals, do we?
