I just spent 40 min escorting those damn slow caravans to Fortune's Shore. Made absolutely sure that I stayed right with each caravan, even applied buffs to the caravan masters to make SURE I got credit. Then didn't make it all the way across the zone to the boss before he was killed. What awards did I get for just under an hour of play? NOTHING. Not a single piece of planarite, sourcestone, & certainly not a piece for the World Event quest that was my entire reason for skipping a guild expert run to do the damn thing.
Starting to think this game has enough stupid bugs that it's just not worth the frustration.
