Endgame gearing Loot list operations SWTOR

Operation loot list

NOTE: This loot list only covers EV/KP/EC see this list for all operations.

Tionese/Xenotech/Energized = “Tier 1.1” (Xenotech/Energized have no set bonus)

Columi/Exotech = “Tier 1.2” (Exotech has no set bonus)

Rakata = “Tier 1.3” (Rakata is exclusive to hardmode/nightmare operations)

Black Hole: New tier of gear in 1.2, has three tiers: MK-1, MK-2, and MK-3. MK-1 is available for purchase via Black Hole Commendations while MK-2 and MK-3 are drops from Storymode EC last boss and Hardmode EC. Has set bonus.

Campaign gear: New tier of gear in 1.2. Obtained from Hardmode EC. Has identical set bonus to Rakata.

Pattern for EV/KP: 5 bosses per operation instance, each operation boss drops loot of two tier grades (Columi/Tionese for normal, Rakata/Columi for hardmode/nightmare). The two operations have loots that are complement of each other, meaning that each boss in the two operations will drop the same pieces, with the grades switched around (i.e. Boss 1 of EV and KP both drops gloves and headpieces. in EV HM, you have Rakata gloves and Exotech headpiece. In KP-HM, you have Exotech gloves, and Rakata headpiece).

Energized/Xenotech appears togheter I think, I dropped Energized’s Gloves from Bonethrasher in normal mode, anyway great guide!

Guild downed 16M HM  Zorn + Toth last night. 2 campaign pants and 2 campaign wrists dropped along with two pieces of black hole

People keep saying only Black Hole pants drop from the end of Story Mode EC.  We didn’t have any pants, but a chest dropped.

Campaign legs and bracers zoom and toth
Campaign offhand and belt firebrand and stormcaller
Campaign chest and gloves colonel (minefield)

Explosive Conflict Story Mode:  Kephess drops Black Hole MK1 gloves and chest confirmed.  Not sure what else he may drop as those are the only two Black Hole items we saw.

 Note sure where this goes, but a Black Orange Crystal drops off the loot box for Firebrand and Stormcaller in Story Mode

the crystal is not specific to any boss, we had it drop off the bonus chests lying around the instance as well. 

Dulfy since you are the king/queen of making awesome guides for FPs and Loot I was wondering if you had an Explosive Conflict guide in the works anytime soon???

I tend to not touch operations since they have alot more involved mechanics etc and usually other sites cover it pretty well. However, I can write one up if I see it is needed 🙂

I guess I dont know these sites cause I pretty much come here for info and pass it on to my guild so if you have any suggestions Im all for it

Try although the info there is kinda scattered and some stuff are not really accurate. You sort of have to read multiple posts from different people etc to get the big picture.  also have some strats etc but the thing is they don’t go into detail into the stuff that will likely wipe you raid – i.e. stuff like how to counter gift of the masters on hardmode Kephess etc.

You know what, I will see if I have time to do a write up 🙂

Yeah, Trooper Commando tends to not give all of his strategies, as he’s a competitive raider, I imagine – and he keeps some of his strats “secret” 😉

Excellent ! quick question what is the the Operations in order difficulty wise? I know Explosive Conflict is the hardest currently but out of EV an KP which is harder ? i’ve only ran EV so far havnt gotten Soa down yet… Have gotten some great gear from the drops on a low pop server kinda sucks lol….. and what tier gear would be recommended before even attempting the Ops and Fp ? Thanx ! Great Site ! Love it

I would do EV first 4 bosses as they are quite easy and then head to KP and do the bosses there. Bonetrasher (first boss) may prove a bit diffcult the first time but the rest of the bosses are not too bad! As for gear level, I would say custom gear with purple mods/enhancements from the dailies should suffice 🙂
