To begin with for all the trolls out there cracking their knuckles as they put their fingertips to the keyboard I will not come back here to read the insults and patronising replies so its a waste of time. I am here as is my right and for the very reason these forums exist, to give an opinion.
Lost Shores seemd to have mediocre rewards in such as the items that can be bought with the commendations but in the end I didnt get a chance to get any loot drops as in my case I had limited time to take place. I had just a few hours before the last event of the Lost Shores. I was hoping I could run one character through the chain of quests before the last big event but the way the weekend was designed I couldnt. I didnt mind missing the first two one off events on Friday and Saturday but the quest chain was in two parts and in the end the window for the first part was short and so I couldnt get access to the second part.
Also the last major event I missed because of where it was placed on The Lost Shores and I couldnt find it as the map was mostly blank for the zone as I hadnt had a chance to open it up. I ran into dead ends a lot. Some guildies in the event tried to explain how to get to the area but in the end I logged off and watched TV feeling completely alienated form the event by this time.
The idea of one off events is a nice idea but shouldnt be so time limited so as to cause exclusion of people who cant attend.
I suggest that it is fine enough that each major part of the event may be a one off but keep open the associated quest chain until the last event and make the whole thing last a week bookended by each weekend. Even dare I say repeat the whole thing once or twice more (so its a limted time event and not just a one off event) to give everyone a chance to play but leave the changed state of the world as caused by the initial event permanent after.
