You didn't think of any of these "off the top of your head." I'm in a temporary guild named Pirates of the Korriban right now, and the guy who created it suggested more than half of those names. There's also The Spice Must Flow and Utini guilds on my server, among others.

He also claimed to create them off the top of his head.

I know this shows my complete lack of knowledge in PVP, but I don't care.

In most games PVP is my super weak spot. I spend most of my time on PVE stuff, but haven't gotten into the big PVP things. I'm having a blast in TOR with PVP so I've been focusing a bit on it.

Level 46 Sentinel. Spec'd Watchmen. I think 13 Valor right now.

Can someone kind of give me a roadmap, and some basic info on the PVP side of things. I don't understand the different marks, or best way to gear up as I get to 50, and then at 50.

Appreciate it.

What do you mean marks? Here is something talking about how to gear up at 50.

http://www.reddit.com/r/swtor/commen...t_50_now_what/

You need 60 valor to get the best PVP gear which is Battlemaster. If you go into the Combat Training area of your fleet, you'll see four sets of vendors (one for trooper, one for jedi, etc.) selling regular PVP gear, Centurion gear, Champion gear, and Battlemaster gear. You can convert Warzone commendations into Merc and vice-versa.

As Watchmen (which I believe is the Republic counterpart of Marauder Anni build), your main focus is accuracy up to like 105%, and then it should be surge followed by crit. I'm still pretty fresh to 50, but my accuracy is at 105, crit is at 28 without buffs, and my multiplier is 75%.

Anni is a pretty awful build for pvp though tbh. Rage is probably the best pvp spec.

Thanks for the link. By Marks I meant commendations vs there appear to be 1 or 2 other types of commendations as well based on scrolling through the list (like some gear is 200 commendations + 200 of something else, or 1-2-3 of something other for the sabers, etc).

Okay so 60 is my target to get as near as I can when I get near 50 so I have minimal time with building up new gear.

Where do you convert? I found my vendor, and bought a 40 chest piece because it was way better than the POS I was walking around with, but didn't see where I could convert.

I think the diff marks (warzone, merc, etc) are where I'm confused on how you get each.

You can only get 50 valor when you hit 50. Valor <= Level.

There is a vendor by the daily PVP mission terminal that can convert commendations at a ratio of 3:1. Warzone commendations are earned by completing PVP matches (huttball, voidstar, and the civil war). Merc commendations are earned in open world PVP places (Ilum and others). I've just been converting warzone for merc so maybe Kolder or someone else can chime in on the best places to farm Merc commendations.

As far as how to buy the other gear, you have to buy or earn Champion and Battlemaster bags. You can earn them as your reward for completing the daily and weekly PVP missions. Champion bags will have Centurion commendations and possibly have tokens for Champion gear. Battlemaster will have Champion commendations and possibly tokens for Battlemaster gear.

Yeah,
I finally started reading that REDDIT link, and that with what you just said is making it all click now.

Hopefully I can get my valor to 49 before I hit 50 just to be as close as I can get, and start converting these Warzone to Merc since it's much easier to max out Warzone when the time comes.

Just watch out for the premades. Now I know what it feels like for the other team when VLN goes into a BF3 server and makes them their *****. I still got 6 or 7 medals but holy **** was the rest of my team worthless... It got to the point where I was grappling people into our own pits so I could get a fair fight and not have the other 3 that joined with him jump in as soon as I started winning.

Yeah,
Since I'm sub 50 right now, luckily, I've not run into many dominating premades. It's happened, but I suspect not nearly as much as it will when I hit 50.

I think you guys are sincerely underestimating how much time it takes to level valor. Also valor has no effect on how well you do in pvp, rolling the dice on champion bags does. After full champion, you get to grind your heart out to get battlemaster, and then roll the dice with even fewer chances at getting gear.

As far as pvp tips, the biggest one I can give you is play objectives. Dots interrupt channels for capturing points. Learn what the medals are and how you can work to getting them while also playing objectives, since you get more valor per.

Yeah,
I tend to stay near the capture points more than not for that reason. Then drop AOE and DoT's as often as I can when people get nearby. In fact a DoT is part of my standard attack rotation. I 100% agree with you on that.

I can't say how many times I was about to capture a point, and got a DOT then even though my team (or myself) took out the enemy I personally couldn't capture it because I was still taking the damage.

It also prevents classes from going invisible on you trying to get away.

I don't think anyone is claiming valor level 50 or 60 is easy. I think that's why the Ilum bug was such a big issue. In fact, I've been saying all along people need to work on valor early. Sure, someone that sucks in Champion gear isn't going to be sweet in BM gear but someone that hasn't played a lick of PVP will suck no matter what gear they have. They will also be in inferior gear for longer.

The less time I can spend in Champion gear while everyone else is in BM gear the better. I can buy 6 Champion gear bags when I hit 50. After that, the only thing I carry over is valor. Sure, there are faster ways to level than doing only PVP but it is a nice change from the normal go here, kill 45 enemies for the bonus, kill this guy by CC'ing him while you take out his friends, and then turn in for a green belt that sucks.

Got the blue matrix shard on Tatooine. Rode the balloon with somebody else and then proceeded to watch them jump too early and die. I was going to be nice and grapple them up so they didn't have to wait another 40 minutes but they didn't respawn there. Sucks to suck...
