I'll even go one better than mounts and titles... I'm fine with Nightmare mode dropping gear, as long as it's unique graphic moddables, and doesn't have any stat benefit over Rakata tier.

There you go, special Nightmare mode gear, without causing stat bloat.
There is more than a slight difference between having a mount in the game, which does nothing else but look different and a ferrari irl..

The game can't have 3 tiers of armor its entire history. Hopefully in the future more ops will be created where you need better gear to enter them or gear with certain stats to help you with a new type of damage those specific enemies dish out. If the game doesn't evolve it will get boring and die.

It would have been good if hm fp / nm ops dropped tionese, hm ops dropped Columi and nmm ops dropped Rakata. This is where having better armor drop on nmm ops could open up more areas for bioware to head towards.

Of course better raiding gear would make hm fps too easy, but that is another thread.

Of course it can't, there does need to be gear progression. But as it stands, if you wan't to be in the best possible gear before new content is release, you just have to do normal then hard of the current raids.

If you left Rakata gear, which by your suggestion should be required to progress to NewRaidNameHere, then people would have to do normal -> hard -> nightmare in order to even be ready for the new raid. That is a good way to lose customer, make them go through 3 tiers of the same raids with nothing new but increased damage.


Again, having the top difficulty raids drop better gear than the next-to-top-difficulty raids is just a good way to cause stat bloat, which we do not need.
