Right now, neither of that happens, so progression is broken. I find it funny that you made an entire post and didnt realize this. So now that we are all laughing can we get back on topic on how progression is currently broken and we would like someone from Bioware to explain what they believe the current progression is?
Doing dailies for 3 months to get black hole gear to progress in raids is not progression.
Yea seems someone at BioWare is really clueless on how progression works in this game.
