This is really what the premise of what an mmo is, it's way worse in other games. At least you don't have to be max gear to do this event.
True, MMos ive played like WoW and SWTOR you always have to grind for gear and to lvl up. If you want a game where it's easy and actually updated play Xenoverse. But us who enjoy MMOs and grinding will stay here
I don't think it should be hunt anymore. Maybe a quest in each area, for each tier. That would be much more enjoyable than doing the same thing since we've started this game.
There is already quests for dragonballs, it starts at lvl 5
