I am a solo player as well and have a private guild with my husband, so many changes as of late have changed the game. There has to be a way for small guilds not just meet in the middle because that is not what is going to happen. I don't mind doing the work as hubby does not play as much as I can. However, not to be able to get gear without HE event seems unfair there should be a workaround, be it resources, quests, etc. Please consider others as well.
