I like the idea of rewarding something like tokens for armor for these group events in the open world. It means more choices for those of us not doing dungeons and if the tokens are account bound they can't be farmed by bots.
i just want pve instanced content that larger guilds can run together. WvW is not a viable option, some people hate pvp.
But you'll also want that content to drop the best gear in the game, gear that is available in no other way, won't you?
If I'm wrong, then I don't mind if you get your raids. I really would be happy for you. But those of us who don't do dungeons are already disgusted about the Ascended gear and are waiting for it to be available through other means, so maybe you can see why we would be very wary of raids?
