Progression trough tiers

The most stupid thing this game has is getting locked out of content.

so you complete Yorn or Punika and finally you are approaching t2 or t3 content, except you are not → because getting the gear is random and you cannot trade the pieces you already have for the ones you are missing (or buy on market for t3).

This is the most frustrating thing ever, been locked out for three days now - meaning doing dailies is pointless, because you get t2 mats same goes for weeklies and guardian raids.
