So, Wakfu could solve both of these problems by implementing a new ultimate boss that drops the best gear in game. However, give this ultimate boss a skill that resets the server. So whenever anyone attacks him, he goes first and resets the server.
Elite players will always have new gear to chase, and new players will have friends to group with. It's a win win.
