GW2 endgame = jump puzzles and mini dungeons.

Seriously :) I think a lot of people have grinded out to 80, finished story and run the dungeons for their gear and think that's all there is to it but have hardly checked out the JP's and mini dungeons at all. Maybe some people think that most of the JPs are just a stupid vista-like 5-10 minute jump up a mountain but many are actually very well designed content in their own right and most have their own zones. IMO you truly haven't finished the game until you've checked them all out.

I've soloed at least half of them and only asked for help when I needed it but whenever I did most people ended up profusely thanking me from bringing them along as they had no idea that the game even had stuff like this etc. I'd say people generally had more fun doing most of these than exploiting/skipping and DPS-ing dungeon content lol. For those reasons I'd say bring some PUGS along from the zone whenever you do them even if you don't need the help. Things will go faster with someone to help res when you fall etc instead of waypointing.

Some mini dungeons are better designed than actual dungeons imo with my favourite ones being Provenic Crypt in Gendarran Fields and Forsaken Halls in Dredgehaunt Cliffs which had a very unique and fun torch/light mechanic. Bring a 5 man to that one though, especially like the NPC hints :)

Anyway here are the lists from the wiki, I haven't finished them all yet but I've been saving the 70-80 ones to hang out with rl friends who are more casual so we can finally do something together lol. Most are also very quick to do, usually under an hour and not more than two. They are also a refreshing reason to go into the PVE zones again.
