My guild is currently doing the regular tank raid, and the first phase is proving to be the most difficult. We're getting through Phases 2-4 pretty well, but Phase 1 is still a grind and we'd love to do it quicker. Everything I've seen or read (that doesn't include hero's journey or raid characters) says Jedi are the way to go. I've also heard Resistance is great against the AAT, but it seems like Phase 2 on are where they shine.
I'm in the process of farming my CLS toons in preparation for the event, but nobody in my guild has him yet. Ditto for any of the raid characters and JTR. I'm planning out my next farm, which is down to either Resistance or Jedi since I don't have either faction and I want to aim towards getting through the first phase of the AAT a little faster.
So my question is, which team is better for Phase 1? Jedi (which 5 specifically) or Resistance? Keep in mind, we're not doing heroic so I don't have to worry about "saving" anyone for later phases, and I can't do endless retreat methods because the regular AAT only allows 5 attempts per day.
Bonus question - has anyone tried out BH after their rework in the AAT? If they're an unexpected powerhouse now, I'd love to know.
