as a geared tank i know its cool to go get the free gear from recruit crap off the PVP vendor to bolster your stats. But that just telling me in flash points that your so damn lazy to not even bother to get your gear from questing. So all you do is crappy dps or healing now. You think that's good RIGHT! Wrong stop queing for harmodes with ****** gear seriously the group finder is what killed the community and this game.
Dragineye - scoundrel healz
Dragin - Shadow tank
Indrag - Commando healz

I'd rather see someone in Recruit than leveling greens.

I also have 3 50s (2 tanks and a healer) that started in recruit gear and had no issues running HM FPs. Two of those were back when you had to actually BUY it.

Also one of them hit 50 on Tuesday and was full 56 mods (bar mainhand hilt) by that evening using just Group Finder HMs. Gearing up is a joke, stop being an elitist.

Also, if you're a geared tank then it shouldn't matter what the DPS is wearing. You won't lose threat to a recruit geared DPS and you shouldn't have enrage issues. HM FPs are like the paddling pool of endgame content and you're an Olympic finalist swimming with toddlers. You can make their lives easy, or you can insult them for not being as good as you. All it says is what kind of person you are, and makes no reflection on them.

On another note: gear (Campaign aside) says nothing about how good a player is. A complete idiot can get full 61 mods given enough time (yes even hilt/barrel) and you can be carried to 58s pretty easily. I'd rather run with a Tionese DPS that knew what they were doing than a BH one that kept standing in circles, breaking CC, ignoring kill order or face pulling.

While you complain of recuit-geared dps and healers, same can be said of recruit-geared tanks.

I'd rather have ppl who knows how to play their classes, than some guy decked out in BH and still can't play his class.

Both of my lvl 50s are wearing mostly recruit PvP gear, because it was better than the gear I already had. I take part in PvP, flashpoints, and PvE. So eventually, I expect to get better gear. But the reason I'm wearing PvP gear now is because it's the best gear I've found so far.

The funniest part is this is to DPS and Healers, I have healed many a HMFP where the Tank did the same thing.

I'm over geared on my DPS and my healer for HMFP anyway, so I really don't care what they are wearing as long as they have a understanding for what is going on or are willing to admit they don't know. On my DPS shadow I sometimes query with a guild mates healer. I'm afraid one day he will have a heart attack as I let the Unlimited Power Cast Bar go so long trying to see if the tank will get it.

Still I don't care except when on my healer and healing these fresh 50. Little too busy to catch interrupts.

Me, I didn't go this route with either of my 50s. I did dailies for mods, implants, ear and relic before moving on to SM Ops and HMFP.

I will say, I understand the recruit gear, I don't understand is people not getting their Matrix Cube....Come on it is free too.

One of our guildies dinged a new level 50 alt, bought recruit PvP and ran HM EV 30 minutes later (as the main tank) to completion.

It's because he's a skilled player. Skill > Gear

As to "the group finder is what killed the community", that's silly. I among many others actually got interested in doing endgame content because of the group finder. Some of my happy moments in this game were with a group finder pug with 3 other strangers that were having a good time.

And I'm grateful to those people who gave me advice when I was a new 50 so I got better. Community is made by the players.
