Comparing 3 months old GW1 with 3 months old GW2 would be implying that ArenaNet didn't learn anything from 7+ years of creating and maintaining GW1.
Runes are easy to get and current ZaiShen mission alone gives you enough gold to afford any rune within a week with just half hour of playtime per day. Getting max stat gear are dirt cheap and easy in GW1 compared to in GW2. The only grind you need in GW1 are getting the exotic skins that you may like and titles. You don't need to grind to have the max PvE performances for your characters, unlike in GW2.
Economy wise, because let's face it, the bulk of the complaints generally comes down do this : a casual player (whatever that means) cannot afford such the best items. For Ascended items this means being able to buy the mats to craft them.
So economy wise, you cannot compare a game that had (because I don't know the current situation) a flooded market and a brand new game.
So really what could Anet even learn ? Players praised how easy it was, some of them even saying "maybe it was a tad bit too easy". Others, see GW1 as the epitome of perfection...So yeah...it's no wonder that Anet doesn't know where to stand and decide to half ass everything.
I won't really talk about the logic behind how "dirt cheap" it is because after playing it for such a long time, I can't imagine myself as a new GW1 player.

LB title makes so little influence in your performance, even in DoA. Also, you can get max LB just by playing DoA with heroes, by the way.
What a coincidence : "For each rank of Lightbringer, you deal 5% more damage to and have +1 damage reduction against Abaddon and his demonic servants." So at rank 8 that's 8 dmg reduction and 40% increased damage. Hey ! Isn't that the same amount some people estimated for the difference between Exotics and Ascended ?
