Gearing Question

I am a lv. 48 sith jugg, I have archealogy, UT, and synthweaving all at 400. I am approaching the point where I will be starting PVP pretty soon, this is something I haven't done very much of to this point. I see that I can start crafting Rakata gear and was wondering if it is feasible/competitive gear for starting PVP and doing raids. I want the best gear I can put my hands on for right now until I start earning commendations to buy the tionese/columi gear. I guess my question is this: Is craftting the rakata gear worth my time and efforts in getting the prerequisite supplies, namely the biometric crystal alloy and the mando iron? I have a pretty cool moddable purple hooded chest piece with an augment slot that I will probably want to keep but I am hoping to get a rakata headgear, boots, gloves, and bracers.

you are better served getting recruit gear for pvp. expertise is better than a full set of high level raid gear. you can watch people with 20k health from raid gear get eaten alive in 5 seconds in pvp. get the recruit gear.

The way the game is designed, you pretty much need to have a PVE and PVP set of gear. They're not overly effective in the opposite environments (especially PVP to do PVE...not good).

Craft the Rakata belt and gloves for PvE, buy the Recruit gear for PvP. You will need both if you intend to be serious in both.

At the Fleet in the PvP area. There's a group of vendors for each class.
