16 man just means you can afford to have more people who aren't pulling their own weight and still kill stuff. From my experience.

In my experience so far, there is a difference between 8 and 16 man raids.

The biggest difference is the trash. The actual encounters seem to have similar difficulty levels unless some of the people you are bringing to 16 man are not producing or as "skilled" as what is needed.

The only exception to this would be 16 man pylons due to not being able to just 2 shot the mobs like you can on 8 man.

Yeah, the trash is infinitely harder on 16 compared to 8.

The loot is not fine. We got more Rakata gear on hardmode than we do in nightmare. In nightmare, we're lucky if we get anything that isn't exotech.

I've also noted from my experience that if you want the most gear per person and the best gear available, 8man hardmode will drop more/better loot than every other setting, including 16mans and nightmare.

Indeed. Nothing like a ******** of exotech gear for a NM clear.

I have never done an 8 or 16 man opp (I play alot of pvp) so just curious, if say 2 items drop from a boss on 8 man is it only 4 items drop on 16 man? (double players - double loot or does it drop like 5-6 bits of gear?)
