Did you read the post I was responding to? Here's the important bit.

136 is columi, btw.

So he's saying that because you can clear current content in tionese, there is no reason to have any gear any better. My point was that current gear also has to be good enough to make it through the first few bosses of the next content.

Given Bioware's idea of normal & then hard/nightmare guess, is that columi will be enough to get the average player into normal mode of next content, while rakata is enough to get the average player into hardmode of the next content. That makes sense to me at least.

And yes, as skill goes up, the needed gear goes down. A very good group of players can probably complete hardmodes in lvl 50 blues and don't even need tionese.

To answer the question in the title; When will Nightmare stop dropping hardmode loots?

When you set to Master Looter!

At least we had a bug that would prevent any Rakata loot to drop when we used Master Looter in Nightmare Mode. When we swapped to Free For All Rakata was there. Nice bug.

So if you use Master Looter, you have a chance of it dropping Normal Mode loot.

We're doomed....
