We dont need anything like that. Just some way of filtering out the baddies. While I agree that you dont need full campaign gear or even full rakata. When you are pugging this instance through the group finder odds are your gona end up with a group that will lack the coordination you would get from a guild group or a premade. Odds are if someone has rakata gear they have at least some experience with raids which means they can follow instructions.

The standard minimum for HM LI in terms of gear is Tionese, yet gear is not the reason why HM LI is difficult. It might have been the fact that the Tier 1 HM's used to be blatant gear checks, but HM LI is all about knowing the fight mechanics and coordination. Also, because of the fact that Tier 2 is separated from Tier 1, people should logically not queue up for HM LI until they think they're ready.

It would depend on the other 3 of course. But probably very little chance, but again not necessarily because of the gear but because "His/her first toon" and/or no experience with LI HM.

I've seen full Rakata people get slaughtered by Lost Island. They more than had the gear for it but failed due to skill/coordination issues.

The gear check wouldn't do anything in that case.

No gear check please dont want some elitist noob telling me that i cant join because i dont have +20k health on my DPS toon, even though i will do a much better job than him having done the instance so many times on my other toons.

If you know the fight just explain it properly and it will be fine, i have tanked it on my main with a group of green/blues dps and heals, granted my main tank is full campaign so my experience and gear made up for the lack of theirs, but what it really takes is one person with decent gear and people in group listening. reading and understanding.
