Avoiding Familiarity with Pirates

Perhaps you have heard about the upcoming Dungeon 2 armor sets.  If not, I'll give you the basics - these are 8-piece, class specific sets, obtained via quests that require you to complete tasks solo or in small groups.  Four pieces of the set will be epic in quality.  The armor sets - and related quests - are currently live on the test realm for everyone to see.  And not everyone likes what they see.

One of the required quests begins in Gadgatzen, which leaves those who have spent time and effort gaining faction with the Bloodsail Buccaneers out in the cold.  Gaining faction with these pirates - for which you are rewarded a nifty pirate hat - happens to have the nasty side-effect of immensely lowering your reputation with all Goblin towns, which means the town guards will attack you on sight.  While many of us would question the wisdom of grinding to hated with the factions that control all neutral towns, loyal Bloodsails are unhappy they're cut off from these new content quests - and that Blizzard continues to add content while leaving their favored faction out.
