I think that being able to spawn minions and send them out to cause mayham is a much better way than having the bossman roam free.
In addition, this is another reason to enter the wildlands in the first place. IF you don't, you'll have to continue to be attacked by whatever it is that the bossman is sending....though this does present an inherant flaw. If you can handle whatever they are tossing at you, you can leave them there and gain a wack of xp which would imbalance the game. A mechanic would have to be included that no xp be given for those roaming wildlanders.....OR that the game is balanced such that the xp gained from them does not do significant impact.
