Well, now I'm confused. I'm sure I originally read somewhere that the first raid would be level 22, then over the weekend it surfaced that it would be level 26, now you're saying it's level 28? At this rate, it'll be at level 34 by the time it comes out and I'll never get to play the ghost damned thing.
The raid has 3 phases which you can do individually (though sequentially). The first is level 26 (but you can attempt it when you're lvl 25).
Oh, well fuck that then. I have no patience to go up 4 light levels. Also, I do worry that a significant portion of the raid will be reused content. Although there are a few areas in the game world that are weirdly barren so they could add stuff there, evenif I doubt there will be new enemies outside of some minibosses.
And yeah, the endgame is incredibly poor if they really expect you to repeat the (already minimal amount of) content that the game has just to maybe get a new piece of gear with one different stat. While I'm not a huge fan of borderlands, at least the loot was neat. Every piece of gear had like several different attributes that might be different.
