I don't know because I've seen people with just 1k AP raiding and I've been playing since 2012 which seems unfair as these new players are allowed in hardcore content even though raids in gw2 are kitten easy these days as casuals complain all day.
I remember when there was an AP requirement even back in dungeons.
So why are these people allowed?!
For your info: I have all legendary armors, 12 legendary weapons and know EVERYTHING so don't judge me!
I'm probably better than 90% of this casual playerbase!
I'm Hunter, he/him
