Tionese Gear - Pointless

If you do the dailies for a week you get enough mods to make all of the tionese gear pointless. Can we please buff this gear so it adds incentives to do hard modes. I understand we have a columni armor token drop on 1 boss, but at least make the tionese crystal usefull. Add some rare mats to the vender or something. I have 300 crystals, but I'm using level 40 pvp gear because my mods are better then the tionese crap.

Tionese gear are grade 51 mods, dailies give grade 50 mods. I detect a falsehood.

The armoring of the Tionese stinks then. Because it doesn't match up stat wise. Bonus is ok, but why lose up to 1k hp for a set bonus?

tionese stuff is actually really redundant to anyone who plays the game for like a week or two after L50, they REALLY need to increase to drop rate of tionese comms or something, i only ever had 1 thing from that vendor

Unless you're switching from an orange tank set to a tionese dps set, you're not losing any HP. All the mods are grade 51, quick math will show you this is the case.

I do agree, however, with the intent of the OP even without the falsehoods. Tionese gear should be better in comparison to what you can obtain elsewhere. Grade 53-54 mods would be more feasable. Or remove the grade 51 armoring mods from the daily vendor and make tionese 52 if that's too big a boost.

Tionese Gear has 2 mod slots, Orange gear has 3. Can't speak for others but SI Sorc gear is itemized for crap, too much power / alacrity. Guess what I can customize better?

This.

By the time you've done enough hardmodes to be able to buy an item, most of the tionese gear is a sidegrade at best.

The Tionese comes with built in 51 Armoring mod and has a set bonus, so it still beats your orange gear even if you swap out the mods.

There's not THAT MUCH difference between lvl 50 mods and lvl 51 mods so that argument is really pointless. There isn't any debating on the set bonus, but what the OP is trying to suggest is that the set bonus really doesn't make up for the fact that Tionese gear isn't worth the time investment needed to acquire it.

Personally I think it should be like WoW's vanilla .5 dungeon gear. Make HM bosses only drop Tionese and make it Orange. Normal Raids Drop Columi, and HM Raids drop Rakatta. There's too many easy epics as it is anyway
