If you like PvP, do the WZs. If you like PvE, OPs and flashpoints are fun. I recommend doing both.

Gear up. You need better gear. And if you do both PvP and PvE, you may decide that you need separate PvP and PvE kits. Don't try to PvP in PvE gear.

In your PvP gear, try to get your expertise up to 1100, at least.

Doing the dailies will help you gear up and get you the credits to buy augments. The heroic dailies are more fun and have higher rewards.

Cgeers!

Another thing you can do is roll a new character, and use your lvl 50 to fund new character so that he/she always has good gear. I'm leveling my 2nd character now and it is much easier this time around because I have access to my level 50s money.

Just wanted to give you a heads-up about Belsavis. The dailies are at the Wilderness outpost speeder in the south and also way to the north (i forget the waypoint). The one to the north you may need to hike to in order to unlock the rakata warp thing so you won't need to warp there in your future dailies.

Hey all, I am back with another question. I figured I would just use this thread instead of starting a new one.

I have been working on my dailies, dang that is a full time job. LOL

I cannot find something though. I am looking for Equipment/Armor modifications + enhancement modifications that I can purchase with daily commendations, but I cannot find them. Not at the fleet, Ilum, Belsavius, or the Black Hole. Yea, I can find Armor / Barrel and Hilt mods, but that is it.

I am looking for the purple, level 50 ones you can buy with daily commendations. Not the ones you can buy with whatever planetary commendations can be earned.

Any direction would be awesome.

Disagree. Not strongly, just this will prove to be a money pit. Use any planet commendations you have left over to by mods, enhancements. Otherwise, let your flashpoints be your gear providers. You gain xp every trip, even if you don't get the armor you want. Plus you out level your gear so fast, you'll be spending more time on your 50 trying to keep the gear current than you do leveling.
I'm speaking from experience here...
When I stopped farming for alt gear, and focused on leveling my alt in flash points and class quests, my alt took off like a rocket!
Keep the alt parked in a rest area any time you aren't leveling them. Let your main work on gear progression and dailies.
Get yourself a set of legacy gear, and you can mod rip a set columni or better for your alt and be OP ready the moment you hit 50. It's even better if your alt is the same base class (scoundrel/gunslinger) so you can pass down gear your main has outgrown directly. My gunslinger alt has a Rakata chest piece and gloves at lvl 44.
