I agree. Once you have 1000/1000 + a bag, just get to 50. The difference between Champion and Battlemaster isn't that much and you can start working on Champion gear as soon as you get to 50. Valor is also much easier to get if the Repubs are out in Ilum due to all the bonuses you get for holding points.

There is a vendor on the fleet that has all that stuff. You trade in warzone commendations for mercenary commendations at a 3:1 rate.

The bag is 200 Merc and 200 Warzone commendations.

Each bag at the worst is going to have 15 Centurion and 7 Champion commendations. Worst case you have 90 Centurion and 42 Champion commendations. That'll get you some Centurion gear, and if you do the Daily and Weekly quests from the PvP mission terminal, thats another 20 bags a week plus however many you can buy from the vendor with the commendations from warzones. Pretty much within a week of being level 50, you should have close to 500 Expertise and a few pieces of Champion gear with everything else Centurion. The first week could be brutal if you end up facing some well geared Republic players, but after that you'll be on fairly even ground unless you run into a Battlemaster.

Swtor.com has some good resources, but you have to sift through a mind numbing amount of trolls and *******es to find the actual stuff worth reading. Any thread saying something like "NERF _____" or "_____ IS TOO WEAK" or "FIX ________ ITS BROKEN" needs to be avoided because there will be Brad levels of dumb in there.

DarthHater.com is also a great site for information, and much better moderated in terms of finding useful information free of retards.

It is easy to be a noob in an mmo... just don't be one of those *******es that assumes because they can't curb stomp every boss on first try it is broken/bugged/needs to be nerfed.

Hell, if it wasn't for the convos with the wife I'd be so utterly lost in this game. She compared questing with me to babysitting... FML.

4800 total, you buy the bag from the vendor in any warzone or the "PvP Vendor" to the left of the mission terminal where you pick up pvp dailies.

And BH is a lot of fun, got my powertech to 50 a while ago and enjoyed leveling quite a bit. The story was better than the sorc story for sure, and Mako is OP as fk.

I kicked a guy out of my guild because he whined about me pulling too fast and not waiting for the tank.

Pull faster and heal harder you ******s. *cough* every mercenary and powertech ever *cough*.

There's no real reason to grind out valor before 50 outside of getting the commendations. As mentioned before, you'll be able to open something to the tune of 14 bags on the day you hit 50, which will give you a massive boost to pvp damage and survivability.

Take your time to 60, because you'll get burnt out just spamming warzones and ****ing with the Ilum zerg all day. Besides, 4/5 Columi/Rakata and the rest champion/BM is the best combination for pvp anyway. Diminishing returns really ****s expertise after 400 (10%ish), and the bonus from pve sets is just so much better, completely disregarding the superior stats. The max pvp bonus is something like 12.8%, and that last 3% really is not worth the stat hits. Overall you'll do less damage and have less survivability with full pvp gear.

I'm really very impressed with the companion AI. I recently geared Quinn in almost full Columi for pve and full Centurion for pvp, and he's a monster. Can easily heal through BT HM. He always CC's the most logical target, and uses area heals wisely. I'm pretty sure he could heal through HM Kaon if we took it super slow.

It seems like you might not experience true open-world PVP by the time you hit 50.

When you get two Ops groups going at it, it isn't bad. Better than the 4000th huttball match for Imps. It does suck when the pubs aren't there though and you have to farm armaments.

I agree. That's the only pvp I have done so far, and it just seemed stupid to me.

It has gotten to the point where if the team I am on doesn't have a jugg and the other team does, I leave. Juggs are so OP in huttball it is ridiculous. It is funny how I will rarely lose a match of VS or Civil War but huttball is still a toss up.
