According to this post from Allyson Berryman on the Dev Tracker, the new gear from Terror From Beyond, will NOT be tier 3. Instead, it will be a sub-tier of Tier 2 gear.

It will also have non-slot restricted armornings. Nightmare Explosive Conflict will speed up the acquisition of the new set and provides new challenges for Operation groups.
As part of a progression raiding guild, this worries me and makes me wonder when we might be seeing a new tier, new set bonuses, and new visuals (Tier 2 is quite unpleasant). Some time in December or in 2013? Joveth or Allyson, could we get a Dev response as to when we might possibly see a real Tier 3 set of gear?

I will venture a guess that this is the new sub-tier (rating 150) we will be seeing in TFB:

Please dont flame, im just a worried guild+raid leader that wants to keep his group of raiders together. Something that some of you will understand, continues to be increasingly hard when content comes at a slow pace.

I'm not sure I understood her use of "sub tier"

To me "sub" means "below". But I think taking the message as a whole she meant "equal"

That looks like a gear upgrade to me. What is the problem?

Tionese/Columi/Rakata, were all sub-tiers of Tier 1 PvE gear. Tier 2 began with Campaign (which is a sub-tier of tier 2 gear), and will continue with the gear drops from Terror From Beyond.

its basically a partial tier again with a miniscule increase.

tio (51)
colu (56)
raka (58)
BH/camp (61)
Denova (63) - this is the new sub tier at least seems like that increase will feel relative to the increase u got between columi and rakata.
Hazmat (65) with that info ill assume this is our t3 then way down the road
Jedi Covenant

Toasterman - Heal MercHanjabba - Madness Sin
8/8 Imperial AC lvl 55

I figured that you had a problem. I have never been worried about something unless there was a problem.

That's just me though I guess.

Okay, so story mode TFB will drop campaign and NiM EC when we get it will drop the same as HM TFB?

Majority of people are all 61 already, since BH comms raining from the sky makes gearing up extremley easy. Hopefully SM will be scaled for a group in more then rakata, or you probably will be able to ignore most mechanics and push through it like SM EC was with a grp fully rakata.
