its so awesome one of our mercs just got the same belt they already own while our other one is in greens
If you are already doing raids and one of your members is in greens then you probably should consider doing some crafting, PvP or even search the GTN. Prototype gear isn't that hard to get. Some crafters are already even making Artifact quality gears. There really isn't any excuse for someone to be equipped in greens if they want to do better. There are avenues to get equipped for endgame PvE content.
