I decided to make this thread to try to compile some of my thoughts, and help some of the other guilds that are looking to raid. I will not claim that my info is 100% perfect, that's where I rely on any of you guy with additional experience to help fill in the gaps for me.

General Info
  • The game has 3 Operations modes: Normal, Hard, Nightmare
  • Normal mode ops are made to be done in quest greens and be puggable.
  • The Operations are tuned for 8 and 16 man groups.
  • The lockouts are done by boss and not by size/group....So if you do a 16 man group one night and don't have enough the next night you can continue your raid as an 8 man group.
  • Normal 8 and 16 share a lockout...Hard/nightmare 8 and 16 share a lockout - Noroimuja

Operations Available

Eternity Vault
Bosses:
  • Annihilation Droid XRR-3
  • Gharj
  • Ancient Pylons
  • Infernal Council
  • Soa - The Infernal One

Karagga's Palace
Bosses:
  • Bonethrasher
  • 3 more promised this month

Loot
  • Gear dropped in normal mode operations is auto-assigned by the system.
  • Gear dropped in hard/nightmare modes have non-removable mods and "built-in" barrels, hilts, and armoring.
  • However, mods of equivalent level drop in the zone allow you to still build your own custom gear.

Let me know what I am missing and I will update this thread accordingly.

This information is what I was looking for. One question, I heard there was 24man operations, is this true?

Also if Normal is for Greens and Pugging, the Hardmodes are they designed for an Organzed group thats not fully geared or is that very gear dependent?

I have not heard this personally.

From what I gather, the intent is that hard mode is the starting point progression of organized groups.

So can I run a Normal EV and a Hard Mode EV in the same lockout period?
