Firstly, these two should have their own discussion section by now.
Secondly, when I'm farming for each, what should my goal gear level be?
I have 55/330 shards for Darth Revan, and did not merit an invitation to Malaks ball...
I'm just looking for a minimum of what works for those who have either of these characters. I assume that if one were ready for Malak, they would be more than ready for Darth Revan.
