Given the following…

Columi = Tier 1.2 (Normal Ops)
Rakata = Tier 1.3 (HM/NM Ops)

What will drop in the new 1.2 Ops? 1.4 (Normal) and 1.5 (HM/NM)?

1.4 drops in the New Operation.
It comes from the Crisis vendor and has different names based on classes I believe. Inq stuff is named Black Hole etc etc.

Excellent...thanks. Any feedback if 8 mans will need 1.3 gear to complete the new Ops...or will 1.2 gear be able to clear NM?

The fights are currently tuned in a way that would seem to require rakata gear to complete story mode. Granted we were doing some mechanics wrong and kind of brute forcing it.

There is no way to know what bioware will do to the difficulty of the new operation from now until release, so anything anyone says (other than a dev) is just speculating.

@Gramz

Thanks for the info. Our guild is starting 8 man HM now...and wondered if we would be able to skip HM Ops when 1.2 goes live.

Isn't it..

Tionese: T1.1
Columi T1.2
Rakata T1.3

Campaign gear: T2?

I thought that gear that released with new patches & expansions was the gear that made the jump from one tier to the next?

EV/KP - T1.x
EC - T2.x

Tionese - 126
Columi - 136
Rakata - 140

Campaign - 146
Hazmat - 150
Warstalker - 154

Wondering if Tionese was even supposed to be part of the T1 sets (looks like a last minute addition) when you look at Columi -> Rakata and the new T2 sets 4 ilvl upgrade per step.

Its easier to talk in ratings rather than tiers for swtor.

Centurion/Tionese - 126
Recruit - new purchasable PvP armor - 128
Champion/Columi - 136
Rakata/battlemaster - 140
War Hero/Campaign/Black Hole - 146

Centurion/Champion will no longer be sold in 1.2 but your existing centurion/champion items will still remain.
