Why do the Armoring mods start at level 9 when the only equipment you can use it in are level 11 and higher?

Yes, but most of that stuff is from Cartel coins which weren't in the game when it was first released.

Gives you the opportunity to RE and create better armoring for when you hit level 11 /shrug

There are many orange (custom) crafted armors that can be worn at level 9.....look on the GTN.

I did look, for the last couple of days and I didn't see a single one.

The crafting schematics for the level 9 orange gear are pretty rare to come by. If someone has one, they'll usually buy any other schematic they see so they can keep ahold on the market. Trust me though, there is a lot of orange armor available at level 9

I don't believe there are any craftable custom armor sets that only require level 9.

There are some vendor items along with some random drops available that only require level 9.

Though with CM armor being available without a level requirement, the question shouldn't be why do level 9 mods exist, but rather why don't mods exist before level 9.

One of many orange (custom) armors that are able to be used at level 9.

How would you get them? You can't craft until 9 at least.
