Heroics are a joke yes, that's more an issue of tuning rather then the expansion because heroic zones pre TSO were ALL just super simple tank and spank. I'd absolutely not join a new TLE unless it has pvp. Vanilla eq2 and the first few expansions have very little endgame content. Also I do not see myself willing to pay to lvl familiars again. FG and possibly the upcoming pvp event server depending on what it will be will be the last of eq2 for me. If a new TLE without any p2w would launch that'd be different.
