If you want good gear and have credits, go to the GTN and buy Advanced armorings/mods/enhancements 28, they're usually about 40k per slot, or go to the Makeb vendor and use planetary/warzone comms to buy level 25 mods (the equivalent of Rakata before the level cap increase)

Rakata level gear is OK for the level 50 hard modes, but not for 55 HMs -- for those, you may be OK with full Partisan tank set. Anything less will require a LOT of work by the healer -- it may be do-able, but it isn't likely to be fun.

Well at least you got into the FP, on my server all of the new ops even on story mode they say looking for heals, dpss and tank so I have one of each all geared in 66 mods wand everything that can be augmented is with a lvl 9 aug and an artifact level 55 augment, so my gear is as good as it will get until I get into these ops, well so I pass the gear check then I get the "but You must have done it before to come alond...uhm ok so I am asking to gao as a healer, that is a reactive role, you do not need much strategy for healing u ust need to know how to do it, but so now I am in a guild that if I am lucky we have 3 ppl on and I cannot get into these new ops because I haven't been in them....kind of a joke, whet the heck is story mode for if not for people to go through and learn?

True, and I think you've been unlucky on your attempts. Your gear should be good enough for story, and as you show an interest to learn the fight that should be enough for most groups.

Um, considering you only ever got Columi gear in the lvl 50 Hard Modes, Rakata is more than ok for them. At launch we were doing some of them when we didn't even have Tionese, and after we had full Columi we were able to clear all the other Hard Modes.

exactly; rakata was good enough for nightmare ops, there was nothing better. it was over geared for hard modes
This is not the signature you're looking for...

Players love roflstomping when it go to commendation runs.
But for fresh 55s... it is a pain with that mentality.
Let see, single blue 66 item is something like 5 - 15k on GTN, go grind Black Hole & Section X weeklies and you have enough credits for full blue 66 (blue 53 ear & implant drops included).
It is more than enough for 55 HM FPs (only CZ ones can be issue, there are some mechanics that may require purple 66s or very good group). If you do CZ ones too you will have some more 66 (blue & purple), Blue 66 on Oricon is doable if you know when to interrupt, change target & stun.
Oricon give almost full purple 66 set, credits and bunch of basic comms.
If you do those weeklies above you will net something like 100 - 140 basic comms (69s) and good enough gear for 55 HM FPs & old 55 SM OPs (TC, SnV, TFB). DF/DP SM require 69s for not experienced players (last 2 bosses in both SMs drop some 72s).
Classic comms you get from 50 HM FPs, 50 OPs (3 pre quest + 3 weeklies) = level 50 relics (more than enough for 55 HM FP/55 SM OPs).

Well just keep trying I guess. 2 weeks ago I was dpsing S&V sm in 63 gear and mk-9 blue augments, nobody said a thing. Depends on what kind of people you run into.
