In Topic: The Guild Wars 2 Endgame... Let's be realistic here..

Cosmetics as end-game doesn't work.
For one, once people glue their eyes onto one particular set or look they won't ever change it (cultural t3, for example).
And second, if end-game really was about cosmetics then why haven't we seen any new armor sets since release?

As far as legendaries go, there is no plateau of progression. It's one big gap that ascended gear (with its stupid crafting material requirements) spread out further.

That's one seriously broken game design.  When a whole line of statistics (healing/vitality) and related gear and skills are considered 'bad play' it has terrible game design written in all caps all over it.

It has its uses but if you are looking for "smoother dungeons" your optimal group won't have a pure support. Five glass cannons soldiers is simply the best there is and sadly enough ANet loves their warriors and guardians.

In Topic: How are your trait points distributed?

Basically: spend 30 points into Valor no matter what. Altruistic Healing (or Monk's Focus in WvWvW) is too good.

Yeah ANet increased the chance to obtain a pre-cursor on the mystic forge... from .001 to .002!

With only the icy runestones to go, for me, the pre-cursor itself is my only obstacle. Given how tycoons have manipulated the market ruthlessly my options are gambling, farm 400++ gold, or just wait until the supposed pre-cursor quest arrives (which will require equally grindy, arbitrary demands, of that I have no doubt).

The most efficient groups are ones in which every member is full DPS. If you want a meat shield as a crutch to your lack of twitch ability and group synergy, well that's up to you. Won't work in higher level fractals.
There are hundreds of games out there with established class roles. WoW is the best one but I hear RIFT does a good job of it as well.
