In the current level cap raid, is it really hard or is it just the application of random bits of bad luck?
It seems to me that the only thing that makes the LT hard is who gets what eye and when. So if that is the case finishing the raid is not hard, but rather requires some measure of luck.
Compared to all the other raids, this seems way out of whack. In all the other raids we have some measure of control, it might have been difficult to exercise that control but it was there. A Corruption Removal here, keeping debuffs up there, DPS race now, poison cure, fear pot, poison pot, whatever we had mechanics to counter act the situation and if deployed properly and consistently we could control the outcome of the encounter.
Unless there is a mechanic for controlling who gets the eyes that I have not seen, heard, or read about this raid is another LOTRO Lottery!
