    So I'm trying to get invasion gear on about 30 toons and it seems to me that it would be better to
    log out after the first chest and switch characters instead of completing the whole thing.

    I'm basing this on the fact that it takes about twice as long to complete stages 3-4 than it does stages 1-2.

    It would take longer to gear each character but I should get more chests in total per cycle.

    The only thing I'm not sure about is if the first chest has the same chance as the second chest to drop WF/TF gear?

    Anyone have thoughts on this?

    i think the large chest can drop chest armor while the small one can't.

    Large chest does drop a larger variety of gear.

    Pretty sure once you get the reward for that particular stage, you won't get it again until the next 2hr block reset.

    What I do is just find a group in the group finder that are on stage 3 or 4 in the respective zone, get the large chest, and log next alt

    I've also thought about doing this. So far my only piece of +10 ilvl WF gear has come from a small chest, and it's pretty rare for me to get more out of a large chest than a small chest, but eh

    I think the real question is, which invasion points get relatively larger amounts of players for quicker completions?
