First of all I apologize for the small outburst and for my bad english. I realize that for many people my "problem" in not wanting to play raids may seem silly or trivial, but I would like to explain my point of view.
No one is obliged to create the legendaries, however the legendaries enrich the game and are somehow a visual message both for themselves and for others of being a committed player or willing to invest real money to get the non plus ultra of the equipement offered by Guild Wars 2.
I created Aurora because it was beautiful and looked good on my character.
Before that, the Predator as a status symbol.
Then I tried Xiquatl but I stopped because while I was doing 22k of elder wood I didn't want to play the Scourge with the scepter anymore.
I love the legendaries, I like their aesthetics, I would cover my character so I'm not a type of player who stands back in front of millennial collections, intensive and methodical farming or challenges of various kinds.
There is only one thing I DO NOT want to do: being forced to play something I don't like in the game. In the case of Coalescence, the raids.
I don't have a fixed gaming group (which speaks my language) with which to do raids and I don't want to be forced to create it. The environment of the raids (and I attended for quite a while) is highly toxic and requires constant presence and a certain kind of attention that at this moment I can no longer give.
There are players on Guild Wars 2 who love only one of the three experiences offered by Anet, in my case it is WvW. I live in the WvW and I don't want to be forced out of it, but I bent over doing a bit of pvp when it was absolutely necessary and I certainly didn't hold back for pve.
But the raids just don't.
And for Coalescence the raids are obligatory, so I would be obliged to either train myself in something I don't like doing or pay those who do it for me.
In my opinion this is where the mistake of Anet is: players should play to have fun and finish their game day satisfied with having accumulated something more for the legendary they are building, attending the environment they prefer: the pvp, the pve or wvw.
Please, give players the chance to play in the world they love, I'm finishing creating Vision and I was ready to start Coalescence solely for the visual effect they would have created together with Aurora and now I have discovered that I will never be able to do it, because I don't want to play raids.
Personally, it doesn't seem right.
