I've PVP'd a lot but haven't been too far into endgame raids. I can adequately heal all hard modes, but have never done Lost Island or story mode OPs. Just wondering when you know you're ready to go into ops.
I can heal very well in every hard mode except Lost Island, which I've never done, and I have two pieces of Black Hole gear, a few pieces of Columi, two Rakata systems, and the rest is filled with battlemaster gear and one piece of War Hero gear. Is that enough to do either HM Lost Island or SM Ops?
As far as your gear goes you can do SM ops and even HM of KP and EV. Battlemaster is sort of a middle ground between columi and rakata and war hero is between rakata and black hole, so you should be fine. LI is not a hard flashpoint to heal as long as your tank and dps know what theyre doing. As for operations you should only be doing SM KP/EV for the weekly group finder reward. Your main focus should be getting black hole coms from the weekly operation missions and getting some rakata from HM KP and HM EV which are both very easy.
