Also, overpriced fleet gear is by no means necessary to run an STF. White-quality MkX stuff can get through Elite-level missions without much difficulty so long as your ship is set up decently and you use at least basic tactics. As much as we may enjoy tweaking our builds for better numbers, expensive equipment is no substitute for brains (or good manners).
As long as the a group manages about 15k dps total all of the stf's are doable. If you're all in cruisers with crappy mk x white gear that's probably impossible, but one or two players doing 6k dps and a couple of other warm bodies at the keyboard can make it happen, and then people will get gear.
Though generally I would think mk xi purple weapons at least would be polite for elites. You don't really want to be 'that guy' who did 1k dps.
The big thing seems to be knowing how players do the missions (not necessarily how the quest objectives tell you to do them, but how to actually execute that) and if you're willing to pay attention all of them can be explained in about 4 sentences each.
