The people willing to eat the dog poo complain because the rest of us won't also eat dog poo.

If you want to do end-game content, that's great. You should get your sweet gear quickly. If other people want to do solo PvE content, that's great. They should be able to buy the same gear, but probably a lot slower.
1 you seem to forget the notion of quality first of all. some things are prettier than others. those things will be more sought after. but is seems redundant to unravel such a simple principle of economy (scarcity) as we've even 'invented poo brownies' to further our points...

2 What has been described above as boring content is considered by most gamers in terms of 'hardest' or 'easiest'
Having objects that are available only by beating the game at its top is what gaming has been about for a long time.

3 This HAS NEVER BEEN ONLY FOR GEAR, some of the rarest and sought after mounts and cosmetics in WoW were available via Raids.

4 What u consider dog poo (pvp and ops) have been considered my mmo communities since 2001 as the fun content available. This has been voiced many times, over many games, by many people. Not arguing you have to like it, just pointing out how what you want, completely works against what the average gamers wants from the game. Cool items for no effort at all, and no items to show for the effort....
