What are the gear requirements to tank HM Flashpoints and SM EV/KP as a juggernaut?

Hi guys, so I recently began playing my tank juggernaut again after a switch to my dps scoundrel. Currently at 15,700 health, I've been running normal flashpoints but I want to get in on the Tionese/Columi gear soon and was wondering what the gear requirements for a juggernaut tank are for hardmode flashpoints and storymode EV and KP.

Thanks in advance, everyone!

Full recruit is enough (if you're a decent player) for all Tier 1 HM Flashpoints (meaning everything except Lost Island).
Daily Mods / armorings are also enough.

Hope this helps

May have minor problems on D7, but you're mostly geared enough to do everything you're asking about. As the last guy said, Lost Island not included.

Just cross your fingers that you get Taral V or The False Emperor when you queue.

Recruit gear is definitely enough if you have a skillful group; Last week I healed EC in recruit gear with a Tionese tank.

14k+ hp was the minimum before recruit gear...I would say now that recruit gear makes that so easy you should not try HM FPs till you have about 15k. And try to get as much PvE gear as possible, the expertise is wasted item budget for tanking.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

No reason not to run all the dailies at least once when you hit 50. The armoring and barrels/hilts are going to be a large improvement over your leveling gear. It really doesn't take long to get a fully fleshed out set. If you don't want to go the whole way the do enough dailies to get your armoring and hilts/barrels, get whatever mods and enhancements you can, and fill the rest of the slots with Corellia comms purchases.

Full daily mods will generally beat Tionese. It's definitely better than recruit. You'll make some nice coin along the way too.
