Depends if you want to push as high as possible or just play the "easy" version without a generator and sweeping wind. if you are a used to fof then swk should be no problem (im not hehe)
The LoN version is really easy to play compared to swk.
gearing it is another story. i found it a pain to get the right balance with rcr/cdr/ad that felt good to me.
Im all for less watching the buff bar i dont mind being a few gr lvl's (or more) behind. it's all about fun for me.
