My concern as well, I was under the impression that Crafted items will ultimately be better than most found items though I can understand getting epic items from very successful trial runs.So, if I read correctly, does this mean that the very best items will no longer be crafted by players, but looted off of the Trial bosses?
Because as I noted in my post, every other MMO in existence tells us how this is going to turn out and as I also pointed out, some features will exacerbate the situation and the guld between the 'hardcore' and 'casuals' that is inevitably going to develop.I absolutely cannot understand why minutes after awesome content is revealed there is always people that bring up irrational concerns..
I have seen nothing which says there's solo content in it, ZOS' comments talk about group content only.

So you are concerned about "Elitism"? I personally wonder how this term has grown so much hate to its name in gaming environment. Isn't it completely usual that some people want to be better at what they are doing than others? And isn't it obvious that gaming shouldn't be different than any other activity on the globe you can participate in?
Any kind of sports, any kind of job, love, whatever people do there is always some kind of competition involved. So why do people hate on players that choose gaming to be an "Elitist" in? It shouldn't even concern you. Can't you play soccer and enjoy playing it just because someone in Champions-League is doing better than you and earning lots of money by doing so?
Then you complain about "Premades"?
The whole point of playing an MMO once was to find a community or a group of players that share your own abitions and goals and to just have fun playing together. Why do people wish to alienate this general idea so badly? So do you truly enjoy partying with 11 other people who you have never seen before and will never see after just to see the content and then (probably) hate on the grouping tool if it did not party you with a bunch of pro-players in order to make the completion of the trial fit in your own personal timeschedule?
I'm kinda getting a headache from thinking about this twisted logic...
By the way, half of your last point is invalid because you obviously did not understand what you read right there... the other half... I will just refuse to comment on that.
A few concerns:
Those that played wow and other MMO´s who focused on raid content will know that specific people will tell other players how to play the game.
If you want to play it your way, you are insulted and excluded from the content.
Seeing that the adventure zone has a timer running, I am afraid the same Elitism might come up here.
People so scared of not having the best time will harass everyone who in their opinion is guilty for their weak time. This will make the whole Adventure Zone inaccessible for players who believed in the TESO philosophy "play as you want".
As far I understand, those Adventure Zones are only for premades right? Its similar to heroic raids then or rated BG´s at wow. If you cant commit to a schedule of a guild, you are out as the grouping tool wont support it. How is ZO going to address that issue, or do you want to release content that only 5% of the players are able to see?
When we bought TESO we were told that crafting is equal to raid gear. But now you say raid gear is the best in the game? So were we lied or how does this work out now?
Don't get me wrong, the idea of an 8 hour lasting dungeon run sounds fun. It reminds me of the days when I used to play professional wow and we streamed our raids on TV stations around the world. Fact however is, who really has those 8 hours and the ability to form premades?
In my opinion the idea is fun, but we will need protection from Elitism, a free to enter grouping tool and some solo content for those who refuse to group.
