There comes a critical moment where every level 50 player finally says to him or herself, “It’s time for me to try my hand at an Operation.” This choice can be motivated by any number of reasons — a desire to test yourself, a humble request from your guild, even something as base as coveting another player’s Operations-only armor. It’s important to keep in mind that Operations are an advanced part of The Old Republic’s end-game, one that cannot be rushed into as soon as you reach level 50. If you are brand new to the end-game, we highly recommend that you read our previous guide for new level 50 players.
This guide is specifically oriented to the slightly less green, those players who are geared and ready but nonetheless find themselves ignorant of what exactly an Operations raid will entail. Raiding can be an exciting venture into uncharted territory. It can also be a nightmare and an embarrassment for the unprepared. This primer will help you sharpen your skills with the ultimate goal of securing a raid spot.
