Gearing
« on: March 01, 2012, 11:54:37 AM »
Quick question.

So theres:

Dailies/Weeklies
Tokens
PVP (lol)
Crafting?

And of course actually running HM flashpoints as methods of gearing up.

Or am I missing anything?

(And yes this is a very thinly disguised, "couldnt they come up with some better method than tokens/pvp/picking cotton to enable folks who want to gear the opportunity to gear" whine thread as if I wanted to use tokens/pvp/pick cotton Id play wow or go back 300 years)

Like i said in my other post. Get a set of moddalbe gear, get cybertechs/artifices to fill it with lv49/50 epic mods and straight into EV normal mode, baby. I have done some dailies twice i think. thats it.

It's a shame i'm not on your server/faction. Could make you a full set of Aim stuff :(

You can buy em cheap enough. If not, just keep chipping away at RE. Less of a grind than doing dailies. However, if you can be bothered, you can get Rakata level earpiece/implants from daily commendations. I'm very lazily making my way towards one, but to be honest, I doubt it's needed unless I do nightmare mode shit.

Yeah I am slowly but surely working on RE.

Im avoiding the very idea of dailies/any other sort of grind like the plague (hence me referring to it as picking cotton).

Head to Ilum and do the PvE quest chain on the Eastern Ice Sheld (PvE area). This will unlock the dailies. Same for Belsavis, pick the intro quest up from the mission terminal in the central area of the fleet and do the bonus series. This to unlocks the dailies for Belsavis.

For 8 Daily Comms, you can buy a lvl 54ish Armouring of your choice. Nice easy way of gearing up, plus you get 7-10K credits per quest, as well as Companion Affection.

Also, there are a series of daily heriocs also. A 2+ and 2x 4+ on Belsavis, and a 2+ on Ilum. They reward an epic mod, an epic armouring, a BiS companion weapon for each comp (choose 1 a day) and an epic enhancement respectively. In addition, each Heroic daily awards 3 Daily comms.

Thanks for that Dan.

I did however just throw up a little, seeing it written out like that made me not like the idea of dailies anymore than I didnt already like it.

It's nowhere near as bad as it sounds, as I find dailies a chore also. The Heroics are quite fun. The 2+ on Belsavis has a number of champion mobs that always drop blues, so its good for companion gear also.

Probably the best way to obtain gear is to run HM's. I've only ever done one (False Emperor) and got Tionese Gloves, Columni Chest and a new Lightsaber.
