I mean, if you're still leveling, and it's an upgrade on the other stats from what you had, then sure, but once you get into endgame gear, it will get you chewed out and even kicked from some flashpoint groups.

And I have no clue about the chest and legs. What level, stats, green/blue/orange?
Chest is Orange and requires level 43. Legging is orange and requires level 43. Do you know any gear with good stats?

For example, you have several pieces of gear with Strength in the 30s. That's way too low. Ideally, all your gear should have Strength in the 60s or so. Really, you only have one good piece of gear - your gloves, at 75 Strength / 65 Endurance. Replace everything else with gear like that & you'll be a lot better off.

For reference, look at the minimum level for the gear you have. I'll bet most if it is designed for players in the low 30s, not level 45.
Do you know any nice gear I can use instead? It's name and stats?

I suspect you're either on Voss or completing the Hoth bonus series.

In anycase... towards the end of the game, most MOBS mainly do unresistable damage (internal/elemental). You take 100% damage. Even with 10K hitpoint, they can burn/poison/bleed/shock/etc. you to death very, very quickly.
You kinda get an idea of this as early as Quesh, or Tatooine - Czerka lab infected mobs.

I don't think you're doing anything wrong. Not a lot you can do, except the usual and just have the brute force it.

I have leveled 4 toons to 50,. Somewhere in my mid-40's without exception, I have had to stop and re-gear myself and my main companion in order to progress.

My advice: Spend a little cash. You'll be shocked.

There are three ways to get good gear while leveling:

1) Do a lot of raids and other PVP stuff. I don't do any of that, but I'm sure others can point you in the right direction.
2) Save up some credits and buy good gear off the GTN. I would assume based on your comments that you have not used the GTN yet. If you're not sure what it is, definitely do more research into it. It will completely change SWTOR for you.
3) Learn a crafting skill, and craft your own armor.

When looking at your gear, there are a few things that stand out - and most likely you have just picked up stuff that has dropped while you're leveling, which is totally understandable.

What I generally do while leveling through planet progressions is take planet comms as my reward - always (unless I get a really nice orange gear option). When you do this, you can use those comms to upgrade your orange gear from the comm modifications vendor (located near the crafting area on each planet).

The mods and enhancements cost 2 comms each, so those are the way to go. If you get the option of armorings, those are nice to get since they cost 7 comms each. I make my own armoring with my cybertech, but I always purchase mods and enhancements from the mod vendor.

as a marauder, you will want to have Might hilts, Might armorings etc. Higher STR than END stats. Then, you will want mainly power as your enhancement option, so usually the Rage enhancement works well (for your given level).

I would go with Power crystals for your lightsabers, the faster you kill stuff, the less damage you will take.

Crit and surge are nice, but wait until 50 to tweak those to get to your 35%/75% ranges, don't bother killing yourself over changing gear for those pre-50.

Also, let your companion get hate - unless you are using your healer (and sometimes even then). I generally attack a group first with my companion, then I jump in and clean up everything quickly.

I have to ask .. have you put armoring, mods and enhancements into these? If not pick up might armoring and mods and rage enhancements appropriate to your level and install them in these 2 shells.

Was wondering that myself. He doesn't mention any stats for those.
I'd offer to group with you and try to help, but even if you are on JC, I don't have an imp anywhere near your level.

that's what i do. if you decide to collect commendations, it would prolly be a good idea to que for daily FPs. not only will you get comms for completing it, but you'll get a chance at nice gear drops.
