I made two threads on this and both pretty much went by the wayside. It's not necessarily about knowing the mechanics, that's a given, but generally someone with say 242 gear probably worked harder and knows their class better to get that gear. Also, I am not a fan of the newer FPs: Umbara and Copera. So I can simply remove 1 piece of armor and queue up knowing I don't have to deal with those FPs. SORs should have this requirement as there's no way BW will tweek those FPs now and Guilds still like the harder challenge. Fine. Make all SORs 242 gear requirement.

Exactly as you said. The, lets say, bad players are not aiming to get a full 248 or even 242s they are probably fine with 230s or whatever they get from GC crates or so. This means getting a person with 242 avg rating must mean this person knows at least something about gearing and it is expected he is better at the game. So making such a limit does help and ive seen it when I was doing the Umbara and Copero FPS, the people I got were mostly competent enough to do the FPS.

Agree 100%. I've posted on this several times before as well.

seriously? i had soo many people in 242's lately who didnt even have augments.... those people certainly know more about gearing than somebody with old 224's but fully augmented... #sarcasm

even in blood hunt you need only 16k raid dps for the first boss...
1 good dps wll easily pull off 10k there a good tank 4 k a good heal like 2k...

so actually you only need 3 people to do it... but you guys are talking gear restrictions

Yes, it's so easy to get a good DPS that does raid damage along with a good tank and heals through GF. After all they're a dime a dozen... #sarcasm

Why would you care? I'm guessing you're not in 224s anymore. In fact I'd guess you're in 248s. And, I agree with your assessment unfortunately, the "naked" blood hunt awesome players are few a far between. For GF sake, pug sake making SOR's 242 is good for the game as a whole and the community, not just a few awesome players such as yourself. It would also be ez for bw to implement since they don't have the resources anymore. Again, the awesome players will get themselves decked out in good gear fast. I'm not worried about them.

Yes the "naked" blood hunt players are few indeed and dont do FPS almost at all. Maybe for achievements if they care about them, when a new FPS comes out, but otherwise, no, they are not doing FPS. Its too much for a good player to go into GF and team up with pugs.....

3 days ago i did it on satele shan with a lvl 57 heal...
1 wipe at the last boss because he did get trolled by the maelstrom as he did not know the fight.
once we were in there wiht a lvl 67 commando dps (a firend of mine) and there was a lvl 70 gunslinger with 246 item rating... first boss went enrage gunlinger leaves.. we requeue get a lvl 65 gunslinger (item rating 210).... bosss was killed in the first try (15 sec before enrage)

its not the item rating its the skillevel of the players and nothing else...
