Where did I say they shouldn't be as geared? Don't put words in my mouth thanks. I said there should be incentive to grind because it makes them gain levels as well as skill points, that way they can participate in PvP. The more people making pvp a part of their play the better given how dead siege/nw was and still is. And again you don't address the fact that seahunting being contested and grindy does not change the fact you put in less time/silver investment for the same return as softcap+ geared player who put months and months into getting that gear. Why are you dodging that fact? Enhanced gear drops are not at all reliable and barely bump up the average silver per hour for most people. Myself I have never had anything but normal drops for accessories. Why should someone put in a few weeks to make a boat to make 80m per hr versus a grinder who put in months and months of dealing with hellish rng to get to an ap lvl his class can grind hytria effectively? The rewards are incredibly skewed for seahunting.
