Operation Loot List–Schematics & Mods edition

Hey everyone, there has being some requests for schematics/mods (armoring, mods, enhancements) drops from operations – especially now that there is a big movement to use orange moddable gear and crafted stuff that that crits (give augment slot).

Over the span of 2-3 weeks, I have cataloged the following drops – everything that I have recorded will say (verified) and will list the exact drops I have obtained below. Drops predicted based on the loot pattern will say (predicted).

Empire/Republic Abilities Conversion

Hello everyone, the Empire/Republic classes are exactly mirrored, although with different names for abilities/talents. Wouldn’t be a nice if there is a nice chart you can reference when you are talking with your peers on the other side who plays the same class as you? Or how about when you are doing a warzone, wouldn’t it be nice when you encounter an enemy player on the other side who is the same class as you so you know exactly what abilities they are using?

Flashpoint Guide: Directive 7 (hardmode)

Flashpoint Guide: Directive 7 (hardmode)

This guide is co-owned and first released on


This guide is written for the hardmode version of the flashpoint but the mechanics are the exact same for the normal version except for the fact that in normal version the bosses do not have an enrage timer. The hardmode is certainly challenging, some of the bosses have very tight enrage timers and the last boss fight can be pretty chaotic. It is recommended you do some gearing up from other hardmodes before attempting this one.

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 Videos (sorc healer perspective)

Hey everyone, I have posted some of my operation (raid) videos here in case anyone is interested. If you are not raiding yet (or not planning to), this should give you a taste of what raiding is like in SWTOR. If you are raiding already, these videos should give you a different perspective (hopefully) than what you are doing.

My raid team is currently

  • 5/5 16 man Eternity Vault Normal
  • 4/5 16 man Karagga’s Palace Normal
  • 5/5 8 man Eternity Vault Hardmode
  • 5/5 8 man Karagga’s Palace Hardmode

Updated Jan 27: We are now 5/5 in both Hardmode Karagga’s Palace and Eternity Vault (8 man). Planning to hit up 8 man nightmare modes next week! Added new video for Soa – EV hardmode 8 man.

Updated – Feb 2: We are now 4/5 Nightmare EV and 4/5 Nightmare KP*. Videos for these nightmare kills have being added!

Check out my guildie’s youtube channel for viewpoints of assassin DPS in our nightmare kills!

Operation loot list

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).

Color coded chart!
