I thought they mentioned gear ratings would be changed or something. In any case, BH is 146, DG is 150, so it the requirements were 156/162, our current gear would be completely obsolete.

That has to be wrong.... otherwise can't wait for the forum to blow up with I can't do SM RoTHC until I do NIM EC or HM TfB just to get gear to do NIM TfB to do SM SM RoTHC. Unfair...

But you're 5 levels above at the end of RotHC, I understand the difficulty is there, but maybe at 55 we get some sort of new gear or current gear becomes easy to get??

You're getting ahead of yourself by assuming that, in the intervening 5 levels between where we are now and where we will be when doing Scum and Villainy, there won't be any additional gear. If the intended gear for the 55 Ops on SM is a tier above what we're currently capable of getting, you can be pretty well assured that the FPs at 55 are going to be dropping 156 tier gear and that we're going to get 140-150 gear dropping while leveling.

I am not moaning...I hope they make harder content and then don't nerf it.

I didn't say you were :P

But they could make BH comms get Dread Gear, they could make dailies / weeklies for more BH comms or something new, who knows what BioWare could do to unbalance the game.... I do know that i may need to shelf my Jugg if what I'm hearing is true.

I'm assuming it's going to be the opposite, also mentioned is the new HM versions of cademindu/athiss etc will require 148 rated gear so I'm assuming that is going to be dropping like candy on RoTHC planet or getting it will be as easy as getting tionese was before they gave away free comms. Fact is that in itself you will be guaranteed to get gear higher rated than BH in a day most probably. Considering it's an expansion I'm assuming there wont be huge grind from 50 to doing your first expansion flashpoints and I very much doubt that the current HM/NiM content will be required for gear before you can do the expansion content.

In short I think gearing for any current content now will probably be worthless as most gear will completely dwarf the current BiS which also wont be needed as the better gear will be far easier to acquire.

Then I may be the one moaning, unless the retune the current endgame content for the new gear and level.
