New 50 Inbound; Some Questions

Hey all,

My Powertech has just hit level 46 and this is my highest character I've ever had in the game. I should be 50 by the end of the week, or sooner.

Looking for advice on things that I should be doing in preparation of getting level 50. I was told we get a free suit of recruit armor of our choosing; which set should I pick as a Pyro or AP spec?

I've been working up some WZ comms to purchase Battlemaster gear, but which set should I purchase of that?

Sorry to make a new thread, and I'm sure these questions have been asked and answered before, but like I said, this is the highest level I've ever gotten to in the game and just wanting to do things right when I reach 50.

Thanks a ton!

Are you looking more towards PvE or PvP? From your post, I'm assuming PvP. There are numerous guides in this forum related to the end game (some are even stickied), but here are some pertinent points:

1. Pyrotech is the preferred spec for Powertech DPS due to the extreme burst damage it can put out.

2. Recruit gear is pretty decent when starting out pvp at lvl 50, but if you have WZ comms to buy battlemaster gear, take the cash option from the lvl 50 gear and get the recruit gear to fill out the slots you don't get from battlemaster.

3. I don't personally pvp as a pyrotech much, but from what I've read, get the Battlemaster eliminator pieces if going pyrotech, the 4-piece bonus to Railshot crit is great with PPA.

Thanks. I'll comb through the stickies more, too.

I have capped WZ comms so I'll take the pay out then and buy what BM pieces I can get with 2k.

Need to start working on PvE gear, too. LOL.
