Edit: Also received a tweet from one of the Community team saying there's no news yet :< Hope we hear something soon!
Source?

I have not read anything to confirm what you are suggesting. I think it's plausible, but we don't know any of that yet.

edit: The only thing I recall reading is that NiM EC will help with obtaining the new set. What that means though has never been dissected.

Which part? Erm have a read through the Dev Tracker. Its possible my memory's being a bit fudged, or maybe I've assumed meaning from the Devs words incorrectly. (Posting from phone so cba looking them up :P )

Edit: if you mean about the gear. Then yeah it could be like legs gloves boots offhand dropping in EC Nightmare and the rest in Terror HM, like how EV and KP were, or it could just be all the same drops. I guess well just have to wait and see

They have never indicated what the gear levels will be for future content. All we have is what was datamined from TORHead. Which doesn't mean anything in and of itself.

For all we know HM TFB may contain a substantial increase in item levels over campaign.

True, they havn't explicitly said it will be 63 items, but that makes the most sense doesn't it? Columi was 56, Rakata 58, Then jumping to Tier 2, Campaign 61 and so the obvious next step is the 63 datamined items.
But yes you're right, we dont "know", but it's a pretty safe bet. There were also the 65 rank datamined armour pieces too.

The quote I could find:
"I talked to David Hunt (Systems Designer), and he shed some light upcoming gear. He said that (for PvE), Terror from Beyond's Hard Mode will include a new set of gear that is a sub-tier of the larger tier that started with Campaign 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."

Again this isn't concrete fact, but we can infer from the quote that Terror HM will be dropping the next set after Campaign. And the same set will be dropped in EC Nightmare. As it says speed up the acquisition, suggesting any gear in Terror HM may also be found in EC Nightmare.

Again the 63 Denova set may have been scrapped, or renamed, as having a set called Denova dropping from Terror HM is a bit weird? But it's clearly the set that was created with the idea in mind of it dropping in EC Nightmare.

And then maybe the Legionnaire/Warstalker (65) items will drop in Terror Nightmare once its released.
Since it would sort of make sense:

Tier 1: Tionese(51), Columi(56), Rakata(58)
Tier 2: Campaign(61), Denova/Hazmat(63), Legionnaire/Warstalker(65)

Still :P we can argue over the assumptions all day, they are still assumptions. Some obvious, some not so obvious. We won't find out till they either reply, or most likely, release Terror onto PTS.

I would like to keep this thread going over hope of some word on it though No news yet, but I'm guessing they are busy with internal testing and cant quite give us an ETA as to when itll be ready for public PTS.

Agreed with the OP! BW the last content was in April... my Main is in BiS Campaign gear, i've 6 lvl 50 alts, Valor Rank 90, i'm running out of things to do, and i was in the patient part of the playerbase.

The majority who didn't want to roll alts or pvp are already have left the game, and that's a fact... your EA overlords can keep the exitpoll 40% didn't want to pay the sub fee BS, because not a single person is buying that anymore. While i'm not interested in GW2 a lot of ppl are and with WoW's newest EXP coming out next month, i'm losing my faith day to day.

So pls throw us a bone.

6 50s and Rank 90 Valour... yeah you're pretty much out of things to do.
Honestly the only thing left at this point is maybe to try and solo some HM FPs.

HM D7 was cleared yesterday and Stevoo soloed HM Malgus a while back. I'd suggest going after HM Revan, that fight was too easy - soloing it might make it the challenge some of us wished for.

i wonder, considering that Nighmare Denova and hard mode TFB might drop the same level of gear (possibly), would they have the same level of difficulty?

Honestly, I was half expecting it to be on the PTS today.

If they plan on releasing it NEXT month, a few days away, I figured 2 weeks testing minimum was reasonable. Don't know...maybe they are testing it hard themselves...but I would love an update on the ETA. Content has been few and far between it seems, and I hate to see my guildies stop playing.

when you say the next teir will be "63" where are you getting that number? when I look at the teir of gear I look at the number by where it says "teir" i.e. 126,136,140,146
