How would you fake that?
Farming EC hard mode with my main and having it completed with 3 other characters I don't own a single Aratech Fire ... but when filling up for spontaneous story mode or twink runs we usually state that gear and experience is not optional. This also means that either you're a twink of someone we know or you'll have to be in at least full Rakata to be taken into EC story mode ... this might seem counterproductive, but in the end it pays for all members of the raid.
We're not looking to progress through the raid, but blaze through it in as little time as possible for BH tokens.
This is also true for Flashpoints where even some that struggle to keep up with the pace thank me and complement the group on the run ... it's a really common mindset to play to get things done and have fun because of it.

Yeah, I don't have much to say about how guilds handle these things internally. My point originally was just that if you intend to pug regularly--and a lot of people do on my server--requiring everyone or particularly a single role to already have experience and outgear the place is bad for the server, long-term.

I agree about having fun getting things done; it's one of the things I appreciate about pugs. I often prefer a full pug to a partial guild run because a lot of times the guild members cut each other slack , goof off, take breaks and do other things that slow things down.

Our guild policy is like this.

EV/KP SM: No gear requirement, anything is fine. (as long as a tank is able to actually tank something)
EV/KP HM: At least in level 51 mods, we carry 1-2 people at a time to gear up alts/newbies
EC SM: Be in mostly rakata+, some columi is alright
EV/KP NMM: Rakata
EC HM: Rakata/BH

As for when we bring pug members, we don't care if they've done it before or not, we will teach fights. We just expect them to be willing to do things our way and be geared around the minimum (or better of course) for the content.

I should clarify though, it's not so much about what you wear atm, but your stats. If you're in tionese but augmented well enough to do something harder it's all good.

I Pugged EC story mode in 100% columi I had augmented every piece. I had buffed and stimmed 24k hps with 38% shield chance 36% shield absorb 28% defense 30% damage reduction these numbers are approx... except for the HPs.

The issue I had was not survivability it was DPS the first go round. 2 days later I went in with a different group and had no issues with toth and zorn. I even got a rakata chest piece.

Once you make friends with guilds they remember your name. They will come calling from time to time. Now my shadow tank isnt my main my trooper is so ONLY my trooper gets to goto 16man HM with my guild. Because of this I am forced to pug with my Tank. This is because I cant commit to tank 100% of the time for my guild. I like to play all the classes. I get bored to quickly. This is why i got lvl 50 Trooper shadow sage gunslinger sentinal and sniper. I am finding it tough to get rakata on all of them. My guild only raids 2 nights a week and as i said its mains only. They dont even do anything else but 16 man ECHM and nightmare pilgrim. Seems they have burned themselves out on all the content.

Anyways it can be tanked in all columi augmented in story mode easily....NO PVP GEAR THOUGH The armorings arent as good IMO. I would rather take you through ev/kp HMs till you were all columi / rakata before going to ec story. Especially since you can get all columi in one week in FPs with group finder. People wanna see you putting in the effort to gear your self at least that far anyway before doing denova...
