Take a look at ur itemization and mods the stuff EA gives is not premier stuff wayyyyy to much Accuracy, it sucks but you have to remod almost every piece of gear. Like i find it a burden to get new gear cause I have to drop so many credits to move mods around.
He said HM EC, SM EC is very doable in Rakata. HM EC not so much.

HM EC is farmable in Rakata Gear; Campaign gear itemization is often screwed up; with 3/5 pieces favoring Endurance over your main stat. If you geared fully in Campaign you probably would have less throughput than full Rakata.

Most classes BiS is Black Hole Mods in Rakata Gear; and the difference is pretty minor.

Know your classes; Know the boss. My last ever raid of EC HM we took a friend of mine through who had 1-2 pieces of rakata; everything else was worse; he did 1100 dps on Mox and we cleared the place in one night with him never even being into SM to learn the bosses; This is a true story of how easy this game is

SM was a joke the week it came out. HM is completely do able in Rakata how do u think the guilds that cleared it in April and May did it. We didn't have all the "extra black hole comms" to get black hole gear. Our guild was even slow with our Kephaas kill coming in the middle of May. But to think you can't do that place with rakata, your just kidding yourself. And I hate to say it, but, I have to agree with the guy who said you've obviously never done end game raiding.

Yes... very obviously. That's why me and my guild farm 16M HM EC every week... because I've never done end game raiding.

I barely would call the joke Bioware has for raids "End Game Raiding" If you think you needed full Black Hole to Farm it then you guys aren't really pushing the limit...

If you have it on farm what are u complaining about as far as gear? I mean am happy you have it on farm, its been out for 5 months. I seriously hope anyone who wanted to see it has cleared it.

I asked Jesse Sky (Lead Flashpoints and Operations Designer) what kind of gear players should be in to attempt Story Mode and what kinds of rewards they'll receive for doing so. He said that the gear requirements for Story Mode are similar to those for Story Mode Explosive Conflict. It's balanced for Columi and drops Rakata, but will also speed up the acquisition of Black Hole gear. Hard Mode is balanced for players who have geared past Hard Mode Explosive Conflict.

So augmented campaign / blackhole with mods and enhancements optimized?
