First off, I know Instances are a part of the game, even in the Main Quest line, so lets just settle that I do them when I have to.
That being said, I don't like them. I do not like the Skirmish approach, and I do not like the Raid instances. It is just not how I want to play the game. It is not how I want to earn in game currency and it is not my choice of path to get better gear. However, we can barter Marks and Medallions for gear, we even get (via the Sages of Eriador) the opportunity to get even higher currency via repeating instances and getting Marks of Victory. AFAIK.
Well, this is of course a useless statement or even a useless thread, but let me just say I really do not like or enjoy these parts of the game and hence bartering stuff with currency, any kind of currency, is not something I presently think I will be doing and thus I loose the chance to get significant gear. Give me an alternative.
Thank you for wasting your time developing this and I apologize to potential readers of this thread if you in any way feel offended, disturbed or just want to get to catch me online and rip my guts out.
Have a good day.
