Umm FPs take the same "knowledge of encounter mechanics " as most ops. and lets be honest there is nothing here that you can't get from Darth hater or Youtube.
"some people who do not want to do operations beyond a certain degree of difficulty, still think they are entitled to similar level gear"
Umm some people can't as they can't get into a group to do them. I think I pointed this out People are leaving and guilds are dropping like fly's! Allot of people also have a problem kissing a 12 YO cellar dwelling megalomaniacs arse just to get in on a Denova HM.
Haha Exactly. Thats why I quit my former guild, I got sick of that *** kissing, its simply not in my character. Unfortunately it aint that easy to get in any proper raid group as a freelancer
