 Actually, it’s a decent starter set for PVE at 50 too — it’s at least good enough for story-mode Eternity Vault and Karagga’s Palace, and of course all the normal level 50 flashpoints. It gives a very solid basis for gearing for hard modes, especially with the normal mode bosses dropping tionese gear and daily commendations as well.

I am guessing no because it was officially mentioned in the patch notes:
New introductory level 50 PvP missions that reward a choice of lockboxes that contain Recruit PvP gear have been added to the game. Players who already have Recruit gear can elect to receive a Recruit Credit Redemption Token, which can be sold for the purchase price of a set of Recruit gear.

Do you have to be level 50 before the patch? Or just when you hit level 50. I am racing to get level 50 but am afraid I will not get there before the patch comes out 🙁

I’m pretty sure the best option is always take the money and run.

If you pvp you should save 3500 rated commendations and 2000 warzone commendations as you hit 50. Even if you don’t pvp much 2000 warzone commendations is easy and enough to buy a weapon or a couple of pieces of BM armour.

So take the credits, use those to buy the missing recruit gear. And if they reduce the money by a lot that’s no bad thing in my opinion.

So… people who have already started putting their recruit gear together are in trouble, as they either get the credits and miss out on some gear pieces, or they get more of certain pieces that they really didn’t need?

Ah, so the credits are EXACTLY the same price as the armour would be? That’s a lot nicer, wonder why I didn’t come to that conclusion first…

Yes, the token sells for 320k at the vendor, I bet for those dual wielding classes it sell for slightly more 😉

Dual wielding classes you say?
(Highest imperial is mercenary, highest republic is sentinel)

That sounds good to me

Unfortunately, free-to-play and preferred status players are locked out of getting either the gear or the credits for this mission, though they can still obtain and complete the mission for the free (Legacy) experience.
