Kiss my ass about white knighting. I don't like ANet's legendary design as it is 100% based on grind, save for the couple instance tokens maybe and those are at best, tedious. It's piss poor design and I didn't defend it the least bit.
But if you think there's more skill involved in Blizzard's juggernaught, you're fooling yourself - because it's equally zero. Z E R O. Can tell me what was challenging about any single of their legendaries though, if you feel otherwise instead of slinging insults.
I liked that they had a story though, sometimes a rather good one (liked the daggers whole theme, tbh.) - and I wish ANet would take a page from their book about that. No argument there.
There's more skill involved in getting a legendary in WoW than getting a legendary in GW2. If you played WoW, I'm not sure why you even want that quantified for you.

Keep insulting me please, it just shows you've never been a part of any decent guild.
MMOs PvE by its nature can't be very hard, because of the diverse playerbase it has, it's only logical, and empirical evidence shows the same.
And lol, if you want to show you got skill, go to PvP, the only place where it's possible to show.
Beating some AI isn't hard, beating human intelligence is.
How does insulting you disprove anything I've said; when I quantify it for you in the paragraphs below? I'm just calling a duck a duck.

Anyone who open their argument with "assumptions" can't be taking serious from the start. Do you think someone who have made 5 legendaries from the scratch never play real end game PvE? Do you think WoW is the only PvE worth while game out there? Ever heard of FF11? Do you think someone who played MMORPG for 13 years would just go out and contend with just farming for tiny claws and tiny fangs to pave his way for legendaries?
WoW is not the only game with good PvE design - but it's certainly the most obvious example.
You're kind-of backing up my statement that you haven't played an MMO with good PvE design at any sort of high level by bringing up XI, though. That game was abhorrent, through and through - speaking as a player of 3 years.
You're just kneejerking because your MMO pride is hurt. I quantified my assumption pretty well. Whatever point you're trying to make has been lost by you getting 2mad over getting called out.
I've made my argument - and since this is off-topic, I'll quit posting in this thread.
