I play another game that has a uber world boss. It's got some of the best loot in the game too. A couple of differences, tho.The world boss isn't just randomly roaming around. You have to kill six smaller bosses, which are about on a par with ToC 10 man. You collect these items, place them on an altar, and it summons the boss inside a random dungeon. A port opens to the dungeon, then you fight the boss's minions. After those guys are gone, the real boss pops up. The entire time you are having to dodge and kill the dungeon baddies too. Also, the loot is instanced, not the dungeon where the boss is. So, anyone can come thru the port and take a few whacks at the boss, and hope to get something good. The best stuff drops straight into your pack, and isn't BoP. You cannot just come in, hit it a few times, and run away tho. To get loot you have to do some serious damage. It's best to be in a raid, since the damage will stack raid wide that way. One lone wolf wouldn't be able to come in and steal the boss away. Some of the best fun tho is that it is a PvP server. The summoning of a world boss doesn't happen too often. When it does, it turns into a battle that is usually the type for the history books. Usually a PvE guild will summon the boss. Then a PvP guild will show up to try and prevent folks from either entering the dungeon or taking the portal. Of course the PvE folks send out a call for some backup. It gets epic, and is huge fun, both for the PvE and PvP teams. If WoW could implement something like this, it would be great. I'm not sure how it could work on a pure PvE server tho. Maybe summon it to Wintergrasp? I'm sure they could figure something out tho.
