I can agree with that, but remember how and where the loot drops. A fresh recruit/ tioniese equiped player can clear the SM ops. It is just easier to have some columi gear instead, not all players are on their 8th lvl 50. The OP is obviously new to the game, because if they were a veteran- this thread wouldn't exsist. A master of their class can do SM astation in recruit without getting carried. Have the fresh recruits start on EV then move to KP to get their first pve MH's. This is just flat out my opinoin, not everyone wants to be carried through a OPS.
I wasn't stating that they should run EC/TFB in tionese/recruit gear I was replying to someone elses post stating the should try to get Columi for SM Group Finder OPs (EV/KP). If you have full Columi they should be doing HM EV/KP. but seeing as they are fresh 50 - they can use the Group Finder and do the 2 story mode ops available to them, without having to know where they are.
