When an enemy dies, there is a chance that it will drop a HP globe.
When you pick it up, it will heal you for certain amount of HP.
Potions, on the other hand, can't be bought and, if I remember correctly, have a CD after each use.
This gives you a way of regaining your HP and having a non-stop action from start to finish if you use some strategy and play smart.
Instead of having HP globes and potions, GW2 could have eating/drinking.
You could do it only outside of the battle (of course) and would increase your regeneration so it restores your HP in no less than 10 and no more than 20 seconds.
Food/water could be bought in stores, but could also be a relatively common drop by enemies.
Auto HP heal after each battle does not only hurt realism and logic, but gameplay too.
It removes a lot of danger and strategy.
In GW2, each and every profession has a healing skill, meaning that they can use it in order to prevent loss of HP and, well, healing!
Not to mention that players can act like idiots and that fall damage starts to lose purpose.
With having eating/drinking, a player will be motivated to be more careful and be more strategic.
If a player is some dumbass who is bad at dodging enemy attacks and using heal, then he will have to use food/water in order to regenerate too often and will simply run out of it.
Now, I don't ask some uber HC thing here, just something which will motivate players to play smart.

Fuck everyone who wants to make games for casuals only because of the profit!

Nothing good will ever come out of pleasing fucking casuals!
Not to mention that automatic HP healing after each battle is not even for casuals, but for fucking retards!
