if u think tionese is up to par with HM FP, then u must think rakata is geared for NiM EC but im going to guess you have never ran an Operation before.
its a good thing im not on your server so i don't have to waste my time putting you onto my ignore list.
Are you actually unable to run a HM FP in Tionese gear? You have to overgear it with Columi or better?
Wow. I suggest you read some guides on how to play your class and improve your skill in this game.
Tionese is good enough for ANY
T1 HM FP.
