Look at it another way. Once you have full rakata what do you do? progress into HM's.
Its to encourage gear progression and to get you to be motivated enough to step into HM's.

Just because you don't understand something doesn't make it stupid.

Player hits 50. Does some HMs and sm ops to gear up. Gets to columi doing those.

Then, once geared enough, moves to the hard mode ops, then to SM EC. If the whole guild's gearing at the same time, by the time they're comfy with SM EC, the player in question will not only be in full rakata, but will have multiple black hole pieces to complement that. If the whole guild's not gearing at the same time, well, the player in question will get all drops for his class, meaning, very likely the same thing.

Leaving TfB dropping nothing of value for anyone.

Understanding something that doesn't make sense doesn't make you smart.

Or you can skip TFB SM and go straight into HM ..... cause you already have a heap of BH gear.

You've forgotten something handy about TFB SM, theres a bucket load of BH comms to upgrade rakata to campaign level (not actual campaign but to its gear lvl)

Its also more access to armourings mods and enhancements you might need to optimise your gear aswell.

Why would it be so horrible if the story mode dropped something interesting and maybe even fun? It doesn't have to be anything better than Rakata but something that makes it fun to see what the boss dropped. Something that makes it worth to run even for some HM runners.

Even purely cosmetic things would work, like empty orange shells of some gear with nice models that we don't have as oranges yet, but the models already excists.

Not everything is about just stats. I'm sure there are lots of people out there who would be more interested in some kind of cosmetic / variation system. Rakata is everywhere already. And it shouldn't even piss off HM runners.

honestly, TfB SM is a little easier than ECSM imo. so we have EV/KP, then u do EC/TB. if u want to stop there u can, if u want Campaign do ECHM, Dread, TBHM. this makes doing EV/KP HM needless... places to get some 25 mods and some vanity items

Yep. At least someone's not pretending to understand a drop-list that lacks reasoning. There are sets that are in the game files, but not obtainable in-game. So even if SM TfB dropped, say, Shadow Striker's robe with 58 mods in it as one of the drops, that would be oceans better than stock Rakata.
