People are looking for a progression that simply is not there.

It's not a case that starting at 44 you do RSTF1 to get some gear that you need to do RSTF2 to get some gear that you need to RSTF3 to get some gear that you need to RSTF4 so that when you hit 50 you have what you need to ESTF1 to get some gear that you need to do ESTF2 to get some gear you need to do ESTF3 to get some gear you need to do ESTF4... in the hope that you're ready for when ESTF5 is released.

That's not there.

It's even less there than it was before S7 started.

Now, you show up for the ESTF in your hodgepodge of gear with a clue. As long as the other four show up in their hodgepodge of gear with a clue and you work as a team... you're getting it done.

There is no progression.

There is a progression of gear - but it's not a progression you need. It's a want. You want X. You don't need X. Then there's Y. You want Y. You don't need Y any more than you needed X. Then there's Z. You want Z. You don't need Z any more than you needed X or Y.

That's what's there.

You grind A for X so you can do A faster so you can get Y when it's available. When you've got Y, you grind A still - faster again - so you can get Z when it's available.

That's what's there.
