Is there a point to nightmare mode Ops?

So we have cleared all hard mode bosses... we were looking at going into Nightmare on Tuesday.

Is there any point? I know there are 3 tiers of gear but we are already at the top tier. Does anything unique drop in Nightmare? Is this a design oversight?
It's a trap!

No, but the last boss always drops a mount i believe.

The point of Nightmare mode is to be able to say whereever you want that you completed Nightmare mode or certain bosses in nightmare mode. it may be a good recruiting tool should you need further recruits, especially if you are competing with several other guilds that haven't completed hard mode ops.

Same loot drops in nightmare, so it's for a personal challenge.

I read in another post that there are more drops per boss but cannot personally confirm.

Frankly my personal experience is that NMM is not much of a nightmare and when you will try you will not feel the difference. It is definitely hard on healing and you have to be careful about few things but overall I wont call it a nightmare mode.

Loot is same as Hard mode.

If it was me, I will have the difficulty of nightmare mode on reg mode and make the nightmare mode so hard that raiders should cry wipe after wipe. It should be so hard that if you mess up on a very minute thing it should be a wipe and you should clear every boss in flawless manner. But that is just me

AFAIK you will only get Rakata drops in nightmare, as opposed to some rakata and some columi from hard.

They were thinking since the storylines of all classes seem to be different, people will take their sweet time like 2-3 months to hit 50 which will give them enough time to iron out things. Wrong!

I just can't see the 3 tiers of loot and 3 tiers of raids, but two of the raids share lewt? Huh?

The dailys/hardmode FPs should have been for 50 blue's. Honestly the entire normal mode raids are a waste of time, and gear level.
It's a trap!
