I cant see why it worries you. If it's what everyone believes it to be, it will be just like upgrading from Columi to Rakata. Same looks but a small increase in stats.

Okay yeah I hate the looks of most of the T2 gear too, but with customizable gear I no longer really care ^^

As for when we would get an official Tier-3? I would imagine it would be the Ops AFTER the Ops that follows TfB. As if Campaign gear is the Tionese of Tier 2 dropping from HM EC, then I can see the Columi of T2 dropping from Terror and the Rakata of T2 dropping from the Op after that.

The gear fetishists have spoken. The news is actually very good news. I dont want a new tier until 2013. This arms race mst die.

It is extremely easy to gear up with 61, especially if you have multiple toons that are raid ready and you're willing to spend the money to transfer the mods through BoL gear. I have 1 toon that is fully bis, a 2nd that missing a few mods (only come from camp legs), a 3rd and 4th that need hilts/barrels. Also one of the toons only been 50 for two weeks now.

Bring on the 63s.
Think for yourself. Question authority.

I think there is always a problem when creating too much of a difference between levels of gear. I too have 5 characters that are (with exception of barrel/hilt) all but complete with 26 mods. But still, 27's would be a slight improvement.

What happens is there will be a large gap between 26's and 27's if they decide to introduce 27's as 65's. This will either totally eliminate BH geared toons from the next level of content, or make it too easy for a progression based guild such as yours.

So, the only question left to ask is, Do you really know what you want?

To me "sub" means "below". But I think taking the message as a whole she meant "equal"
A sub tier would be a subsection of something else - a part of it, rather than a separate thing. Ergo a sub tier is a part of a single tier.


Tionese - 1.1
Columi - 1.2
Rakata - 1.3
Campaign/Black Hole - 2.1
[NiM EC and HM TFB] - 2.2
[NiM TFB] - 2.3

Yeah, looks like we're going to get 3.1 in late Dec 2012 or early Jan 2013.

I'd have to say that unless there's significantly more challenging content in the pipeline, I'm happy with the gear I have and would rather see more looks become available than I would more powerful upgrades.

Because of the gear I have today, I faceroll thru the bulk of today's pve content (besides HM EC) and unless there's more challenging content coming soon, equipping more firepower really won't accomplish anything besides nullifying mechanics and make EV/KP and all the HM FP's even less exciting (if not obsolete).

I kinda suspect the "sub-tier" comment means we will see a lot more of the Black Hole MK-2, MK-3, and MK-4 gear dropping.

Great. Just makes everything easier and hurts crafters.
