Personally I think people are looking at this from the wrong angle. If anything I think depending on how it's implemented exactly it could be a -great- tool for raiding guilds in recruiting new applicants to their guild, because as gear is made universal you can test the strength of that new hunter who wants to join your guild rocking blues and greens, and know whether or not he can actually play his class well when given the gear or not. This allows guilds to take a chance on someone whose gear may be behind the curve. So often it's frustrating when you get someone who sounds good on paper that you have no way of checking out until you give them a shot. When you have a very small guild any new people you bring in has the power to upset the apple cart, so it's important to bring in the right people. This will allow smaller guilds to not feel as if they "waste" gear on a trial who just can't / wont ever hold their own weight -- and it can give those without tons of achievements or previous HM history a chance to show they have the chops to perform.I also think that for those players whom maybe do not like guilds but are talented that their individual realm ranking for challenge modes can somewhat serve as their badge of honor or proof that they know what they're doing when trying to get into pugs? I think that it gives those whom don't go the guild route a chance for their characters to still have personal progression. It makes it so not just the top tier arena players and top tier raid guilds get any type of recognition or personal glory. It gives joe-schmoe the chance to say you know what, I am awesome to, here is my gold ranking to prove it...
