Why do people interpret "Tanky gear" as "Take every deadly attack to the face?". You still have to avoid damage when possible, healing is there for unavoidable damage, or to offer a safety net for when people ♥♥♥♥ up. I don't recall playing a game where you could heal or tank your way through stupid.
I recall at least one.

Well the only thing I really do is dailies (sometimes) and fractals/dungeons with my friends.
Yeah perhaps you should just focus on doing stuff with friends as that can always be pretty fun no matter what you are actually doing. When most of my friends and guildies still played, we had all sorts of events like playing hide and seek in major towns. We also walked from ratasum to ebonhawk while chatting in teamspeak. Good times lol.

You could try to do group content such as wurm, tequila and WvW. It can be quite fun if you join team speak even if the content itself isn't anything special. But honestly, buying a new game is probably the best thing you can do at this point. If you have that many lvl 80 chars and you also don't feel like playing them much, it means you have likely exhausted this game. I don't see how someone could suggest something that you don't already know about. If you have played since release then you have already seen it all. Hell, you probably have names for most of the rocks found in Tyria...

I feel that I'm in a similiar situation as you. I'd want to enjoy the game but there really isn't anything that would spark my interest anymore (aside from trolling map chat). I quess the problem with themeparks is that there are only so many different rides.

In Topic: Best utility infusion

Magic Find makes you get more loot from opposing players so it's not a bad choice if you do lot's of WvW. Like it was mentioned, MF doesn't affect the stuff you get from the loot bags itself, but it should make you get more of them.

I spent laurels on the karma infusion when I returned to the game AFTER anet had made the changes to karma boosters (I was so pissed).  You guys made me feel better about getting it and keeping it.
The karma jugs and other such items are a lot rarer now as well. Most of the Karma comes from events now and those are affected by the infusion.

Don't get me wrong: I love the accessibility that comes from not being forced into a very specific lore (For instance, factions in other MMOs are one of the primary reasons why I don't play those games: I get that they create immersion, but I'd rather play with my friends, access all the gold I have on my account or play an engineer sylvari.), but if one is going to create a living world, then players need to feel a connection with said world. And, as I said, I think that this connection is way too optional in GW2.
Keep in mind that this connection doesn't have to mean just restrictions: for instance, I think that giving the players the chance to access the PS from anywhere in the world, by simply pressing a "Start mission"-button in the PS panel would be a decent addition. As would the ability to replay it. It would certainly have to mean certain restrictions, but there's a lot of room between GW2's take on lore and something like Baldur's Gate.
It would be nice if people would feel more connected to the world, but I don't know if forcing the story more is going to help. The game has many different players while currently the story offers no dialogue choices and some of the characters have really frustrating personalities. It doesn't help that the player character with his boy scout attitude is the most annoying of them all.
Those features you mentioned would be useful though and in fact you should be able to replay LS season 2 content.
