Black Hole Comms and gearing in 1.3

Hey everyone, with Group Finder arriving in 1.3 to reward Black Hole comms for running Hardmode FPs and storymode tier 1 operations, obtaining black hole comms is quickly becoming a hotly debated topic, I have drawn up a little chart to show you exactly how much Black Hole Comms you can get per week when patch 1.3 arrives and how long you can expect the gearing up process to be.

1.2 War Hero armor–High resolution in-game screenshots

Hey everyone, I know you guys have being asking for high resolution images of the new War Hero PvP gear ever since you saw those previews I posted. Thankfully, in addition to purchasing them via ranked Warzone Commendations, you can also craft these as empty orange shells! This took me a couple days as I had to level a synthweaver on the PTS. Luckily my alt, who also got transferred (by mistake hehe) is an armormech so I didn’t had to level an armormech as well.

1.2 Endgame PvE gear & full set stat comparisons

Updated: April 9 – Added Black Hole commendation drop rate  from Hardmode EC and two new “variants” of Black Hole gear.

Hey everyone, with the upcoming release of 1.2, there will be two new PvE endgame armor sets to “grind” for. One is the Black Hole MK-1 armor set which can be purchased via Black Hole Commendations that drops from Nightmare Karagga’s Palace, storymode/hardmode Explosive Conflict, and Corellia Black Hole weekly. The other is the Campaign set whose tokens drops from hardmode Explosive Conflict bosses. Hardmode EC bosses/chests also drops Black Hole MK-2, MK-3 pieces directly (i.e. you get the specific armor pieces, not tokens).

Orange bracers/belts and their modding

Hey everyone, orange bracers and belts are some of the hottest items on the GTN right now – people are buying them up and outfitting them with their own mods/enhancements to get something on par if not better than the Rakata belts & bracers. Today I will share with you some of the information I have gathered on where to obtain these items and for light armoring users – how to customize the rest of your armor pieces!

How-to: Soloing heroic dailies (Empire)

This guide is written specifically for the Empire side but the strategy used here should work also for the Republic side.

Hello everyone, the heroic dailies on Belsaivs (2x Heroic 4+, 1 x Heroic 2+) and Ilum (1x Heroic 2+) can be a great way to make some credits (about 13 k credits) and daily commendations (3 commendations) for your Rakata implants/earpiece. If you play on a low population server or odd hours of the day it can be hard to find a group to do them. Luckily, if you have a geared out companion (healer or tank), you can solo all of these heroic dailies. Of course, you can also do all of them with a partner to make it even easier!

Operation loot list

Operation loot list

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

http://dulfy.net/2012/12/03/swtor-operation-loot-table1-5/

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).
