I'll try to answer the Dungeon Questions.

1) Shouts are good even without Altruistic Healing. At low levels AH healing is barely noticeable anyway so it's okay to put in points for Shouts, which actually helps increasing Survival with the Vitality Bonus. The benefits of Meditations (which have long recharge) can be covered by Shouts.

Spirit Weapons will perform well enough but you won't have enough points to have all the improvements you may to try and see which among them you really need. (Eternal Spirit, Spirit Weapon Mastery, or Improved Spirit Weapon Duration) It is possible to run with one of the Spirit Weapons while running with a Shout Build. You don't have to trait Consecrations just yet, they are useful but you don't need to buff them. You can swap them in or out when the need comes for them. The most you would use is Wall of Reflection during the Spider Section of AC (which all paths have to encounter)

2) Yeah for the moment I would suggest something that does increase your health pool.

I would probably do something like this. The weapon set is quite defensive without losing any offensive control. Second set could be a GS or a Hammer to provide more punch. Keep a Scepter in your bags if you find that you need to stay out of range. You can swap one of your Shouts for a second Spirit Weapon. I just felt that the Sword will be quite enough to have constant damage will you play defensively.

PS: There are parties that do kick low levels but there are those who are nice enough to have you with them regardless.

Can you post that build in gwskills?  iPad won't open gw2db builds.

I suppose I could link tons of pages where Blizzard's Devs are in the forums addressing issues, or how they continually update patch notes as time goes on.  Most of the reason a lot of people are miffed is because we had nothing but what little was said in the forums by the devs.  Leaving messages like "lots of rangers utilities will be looked and made more attractive.  Expect to see lots of ranger changes" and then as the fever gets built up for the patch, people are left hugely disappointed because their excitement and speculation was left unchecked.  Could you imagine if Blizzard did their patches like Anet does?  Millions of players logging in to find all kinds of stuff screwed up and moved around, this nerfed or that buffed. But I think ANet's mindset is that since we dont pay a sub fee, they can do as they please and to hell with us.

Off memory I bet the responsiveness of blue compared to red 2.5 months into wow and 2.5 month into gw2 is pretty comparable. The bar has been raised due to the tenure of wow. Give it time and come back if it changes. I don't think they're doing anything that I would consider negligent when it comes to fixing problems. Things take time.

I played wow for 7 years. I enjoyed it while I played it, but got tired of the mechanics. I'm playing gw2 now. Blizzard isn't the spawn if satan.  Neither is anet. Both provide a product for me to purchase or not.

Love the forums:

Threads stating how much better anet handles customer concerns than blizzard.
Threads stating how much better blizzard handles customer concerns than anet.

Each his own, but I wish forums only provided data and facts rather than "here what I feel at the moment" posts. It's hard to identify vocal minority posts.
