I've spent the better part of the last 3 days doing these. While they are a nice refreshing change of pace and also strangely addicting, BW needs to tweak the way that treasure and quest objectives can be found. On a heavy pop server, when things get really competitive amongst diggers these quests lose their shine. It can be beyond frustrating to have people following you around and then setting their seeker droids down exactly where you put yours. Twice today I've had people do that and find the special item for the area I was in even though my dig spot went down first in the precise area they dropped theirs. This is a really really frustrating mechanic that seems to discourage social play. Which seems counter-intuitive in a MMO. Maybe if BW expanded the number of active areas/planets at a given time, this wouldn't be as much of an issue.

But yeah, these quests are a nice change of pace, but could definitely use some additional tuning.
