I feel that once you’re in the post/late-game parts of the game, things like filling up the bestiary/obtaining the legendary items is a huge grind that frankly isn’t worth the payoff. Things like fighting Belveros for the Dragon Scales, or clearing dungeons just so you can fight the Sky Pirates for the miniscule chance that Flintlock or Shanker will appear, is extremely tedious. I’ve fought 40~ Sky Pirate ships and have only seen Flintlock, I’m not sure if I want to try to fight another 40 ships to see Shanker.
For the legendary weapons, by the time I was able to obtain them, I was basically done with the game, and filling out the bestiary/fishiary is all I have left. NG+ doesn’t keep my items, so I basically don’t even get to make full use of the legendary weapons.
I know you guys have said that you’ll adjust the appearance rate of the Shade of Belveros, but maybe you guys could do that for the Sky Pirate Captains as well, because now it’s just a tedious grind.
