But showing up in full recruit is a slap in the face to pvers that started at the beginning, do your dailies and get the gear. I have no problem with beginners using some recruit here and there at the beginning but not the full set. Do your lead in work like we all did.
I've played since beta, and sorry but what your saying is the stupidest thing I've read on the forums in a while. Basically because gearing up sucked in the early days, no one should be allowed to take advantage of easily accessible gear now a days? My last 2 50's I jumped right into HM's with full recruit, and I'll do it again and again, because it's better than grinding out dailies for some crap mods I'll replace in literally a few hours as I get better crap from anything else in the game.

Agreed. Grinding dailies for the gear which will become useless in no time... it's a huge waste.

Btw, tanks that are not comfortable with jumping into FPs and especially Ops in Recruit can spec DPS and run a bit in that role to accumulate some initial gear, after which tanking will be easier.
