Levels = power.
Optional grind as in, everything you could possibly do is in GW2 is a grind with a shiny wrapper over it.
In the real world people "grind money" for "cosmetic crap", stating that because legendary items don't increase your power level in anyway is fluff. People will want those weapons, people WILL puchase those EXP potions and people will grind those weapon tokens.
Power can mean many things and having a diamond ring vs his iron band is power in any world.

Nothing new, see Guild Wars 1...
And don't spout foolishness and not expect to be called on on it, why would you even draw a parallel to gambling...perhaps because you have never gambled and have no clue?
That's my only guess.
The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.
