I did VoG a bunch back in the day. It was actually really fun. I'm up to 252 and climbing. The grind is a hell of a lot easier than it used to be, and they actually made enough quests to keep it interesting.
I'm at Light Level 294 right now and I've been stuck there for a couple of days. I got most of my good gear doing the Court of Onyx and doing the Hard Strikes. I was able to upgrade a bunch of stuff, but now everything is so high that I'm not getting anything good enough to upgrade other stuff.
I haven't done any of the raids, even the launch Raid.
