Oceansfull has been a big disappointment this year, just like last year. I had problems wanting to play for a few months after Oceansfull last year, due to hours wasted trying to get the recipe book, and this year has been just as bad. I collected 128 items, from the clams in Antonica, and never got the recipe book. So far, none of my characters, on Thurgadin, have found the book. I got 3 books on Maj'Dul and 2 on Public Test and that is after a dozen hours of play. I am sick of spending hour after hour going around in circles opening clams when I don't have the recipe books (last year's and this year's) to go with the marine/sea theme. And please don't tell me to buy the books on the broker. I've seen the prices of both the books and the completed items (when they are even available) and they are way too expensive for non raiders. Hopefully the price will come down on this year's books when more are put on the brokers but last year's will still be way too expensive. It is a shame you didn't put that as a reward for the Overseer's Oceansfull quest this year.
