Ugh. Not pleased about this. If they keep those two stupid find an easter dress and find a tuxeo and pants (It should be either/or if they did) then it's going to be the RNG screwing people over -more- than they already did. I was looking forward to a holiday I could do for fun rather than obligation towards the drake. Now I'm going to be stressed about getting the achievements instead of actually enjoying myself.

The dress and suit existed for the holiday before these changes and were not part of any holiday requirement. IF they change that, they will increase the drop rate -- it used to be 1 in every 80 eggs for any piece of clothing.

*dress and suit achievement, I should say -- where you find one in an egg

Yeah, but they didn't apply to the longer achievement. I intended to try for them anyway, as I have every year (Never HAVE gotten anything but candy from the eggs) but I'm more frustrated that this year I'll be doing that with a 'crap, I need to find it, GAH, I didn't want the stupid dress again, I need the shirt...' sas opposed to feeling "Whoah! I got the dress! And I got it again! this is awesome!" After I got eight lovely black dresses over Valentine's day. Needless to say, it got to the point I was just tossing them over to my bank alt because I had nothing to do with the things anymore. As opposed to the year before, when I only got one on my main, and my boyfriend surprised me by buying me one for an opposite faction alt that didn't have one. That made me really happy...and that happiness, I think, is being taken away by making certain random things 'obligations' instead of 'hope for it because you WANT it and enjoy it'. They have to up the drop rates for everything now on every holiday events. What you get no longer becomes something to be proud of, it just becomes something everyone has because they want the end goal of the proto-drake. I'm not saying I don't want them to up the drop rate. The drop rate is really low because the outfits were their own reward before. But now they're a reward for something else, and that cheapens what they are themselves. Short QQ is just that Noblegarden didn't count for the protodrake before, so I was looking forward to trying to get those clothing items without the areas even more swarmed by others who don't want them but just want the drake. I want the drake, don't get me wrong, but I like enjoying the events for what they are too.
