I was thinking about the crafting aspect and current implementation. My thought was what if the best gear did not drop from raids/etc, but instead to get the best gear the best raids dropped only items used to craft the best gear and you had to go to a guild buddy or pay someone to craft the "uber breastplate of doom" for you if you were not a crafter or did not have the skill? So, once you had all the items you could have them crafted together. I know people like to have stuff handed to them, but I believe this would help to bring in more aspects of the game together and feel more like a community. It would also bring more of a dimension to crafting since they could add experimentation to the mix of components. This could be applied to different levels of gear too, not just the best, although some items obviously need to drop for us to use. Just a thought.
