I'm not sure why you find this whole situation to be comical. By removing/nerfing Trina Matchlock from sea content less people are going to venture into the sea, making the content out there less desirable and welcoming to new players like you who can't afford an epheria and +6+ boat gear. The rewards for participating are now halved, so no guilds will be interested in forming up parties/guild related content to go out there now besides like 1-2 guilds. Less content in the game to do = a good thing to you. Ignorance is contagious, please don't spread it, thanks.
