Glad your loving the shard. The reason why we set up those monster towns was to reduce the vendor amount and increase the monster amount that is outside of dungeons. But I understand that liberating the towns will be satisfying.
The reason you don’t see any staff is because the team consists of Dreams, Hybrid and myself. There is no in-game staff currently. This was decided because in-game staff on ZH shards tends to go inactive after a few weeks or do other naughty things that ruin it for everyone else.
I will see if the event can be automated.
