The Revealing Mark bonus on Hytbold Armour of the Charge is actually really good for when you have multiple Captains in a group. A lot of raids run with two Captains, and any raid leader who complains about an LtC Captain since Isengard simply isn't paying attention.
The only raid I haven't successfully run in LtC is Saruman. (Of the T2s, I've only done Lightning. I suspect it's doable in LtC, but I didn't take a real shot at it prior to RoR.) And I don't even have the Perseverance set that makes LtC a healing powerhouse.
But anyway, all of the Hytbold sets are fine. But they're just fine. The real problem with Hytbold Armour of the Charge is that it doesn't have the Shadow's Lament cooldown reduction that's on Dagor. But even with that, I can see 3 Charge/3 Dagor being a valid choice for non-PvP Captains. (Kind of like Draigoch/Mene, but for DPS this time.)
Personally, until we find out more about the forthcoming instance cluster, I'm just going to work on the Hytbold Leader set. Why? Because the only character stats that matter for Mounted Combat are Morale and Power. Hytbold Leader has a lot of Morale, and Red Dawn/Riddermark both provide a ton of power restoration. Yeah, I know, there aren't any real challenges in Mounted Combat right now, but I wouldn't be surprised if some show up in Update 9.
