Was invited to a 16 man end game instance. Really nice except for the lag when everyone started spamming graphical skills (Think 16 RK's in one place).
Doing lvl 50 heroics on Belsavis, Illum and Corellia is very important to get the barter items for raid gear. Mine isn't up to standard and it hurts alot. Also going datacron hunting.
But the shinys after killing bosses is just really, really good. got endurance raised by almost 100 just by 2 pieces and will alot
And everyone gets a piece of raid gear/item when looting the chest. It is BOA and specified for your class. Rolls are for schematics and high tier crafting materials. I liked that idea alot.
It will be hard trying to combine raid schedule for me on both lotro and swtor, but hopefully I can fit it together somehow. Lotro still has the upper hand.
