These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
It's Easy, so It Sucks: Taloc's Hollow solo instance, accessible to level 51 or higher characters. You are practically impossible to die as you are given a super buff that gives you 100,000 HP, a 5,000 damage AOE attack and a 7,000 damage single-target attack (10 second shared cooldown), and a super-powerful defensive skill - while filled with fake "Elite Mook s" having stats roughly comparable to 1-2 star non-elite ones.
Scrappy Mechanic: Aethertapping. Aether is required for all Item Crafting, but the nodes are only found high in the air. Combine with your measly one minute of flight time requiring two minutes to recharge, and you're going to spend a lot of time tabbed out of the game waiting to fly again. Adding equipment that increases flight time do not speed up your flight time regeneration, so if your maximum flight time is 5 minutes then it will take 10 minutes to fill the meter up!
