Can I safely buy thr modification and the unidentified gear form the Spolis of War vendor?
Priority on how to spend Tech fragments:

1) set bonus
2) main tactical
3) other useful tacticals depending on spec
4a) rinse and repeat for how many characters if you want to gear or
4b) chase the BiS mods and enhancements from the RNG vendor *if* there's nothing else you want to buy

Modifications from vendors and mofications that drop are exactly the same, all RNG so check everything. Keep the good stuff luck awards, destroy the rest for more TF and chance of embers.

BiS for 75 content (dxun op, meridian flashpoint, the new planets and pvp) are, for a DPS: lethal 80 r2 mods, r18 and r19 initiative enhancements 80, r19 and r20 nimble enhancements 80, adept 80 and 80 r1. relics serendipitous assault and focused retribution, sha'tek implants and earpieces.

For level locked (70) content you want to use primeveal fateseeler and devasting vengeance relics and since power (and mastery and endurance) are capped, if you really want to go all out the low power high tertiary stat enhancements (efficient, savant and proficient r1) instead.

stat tresholds: 1590 accuracy rating for 110 % accuracy, 1213 alacrity to reach 1.4 gcd (except specs with their own alacrity boost like arsenal lighting and carnage), rest crit until around 3100 to 3300 (depends on spec) and then mastery unless you're primary doing level locked content in which case don't bother as it'd be wasted.

I can't say for sure if any of the crafted 306 items would have "better" stats because I haven't bothered to try to get the better schematics. I doubt that there's any major difference. Also, the ones you get as drops have a variety of stats to suit your build.

As a poster above said, you should primarily spend your TFs on pieces of a bonus gear set and tacticals.
You can also RNG some items from the Spoils Of War vendor if there's some implant, earpiece, or relic you need.
Beyond that, you can use some TFs to buy some items like pets and mounts, from the vendors on Ossus.

This should be sticked; it is so usuful for new, confused players, and I am quite sure I am not alone

Many Thanks!

Here's a recap of how to fill out the left hand (LH) side items. L75 was covered above, but it sounds like the OP might have leveled to 75 without anything stuffed in the LH side. This is not good. The first and most important rule for gearing in SWTOR is to stuff every slot ASAP. It's more important to have a bad something than nothing.

LH @ L75: random drops, boxes (renown, fp, & conquest), and fragment vendor. Crafting is technically possible, but the drops are nicer and far FAR easier to get.

LH @ 10: PvP. Get the starter pvp quest and do one (1) match. It will reward you with a full set of LH items. These are sufficient for PvP'ing all the way to L74 due to bolster. They work fine in PvE, too.

LH/PvE @ 15+: crafting and gtn are a great way to improve your PvE leveling gear. However, it is definitely more efficient to use vendor items to level your first character than to pause and craft. The more characters you have, the more it pays off to craft ideal leveling sets to stuff in legacy (sharable) shells.

I'd urge swapping the sequence for tactical and set-bonus; ie. do tactical first. The reason is that many tacticals are quite nice and can make a significant and immediate improvement @ i268 (long before your set can matter). Set bonus "niceness" varies a fair bit from class to class, but it always will take 4~6 pieces before you will see any difference at all. And, that's not just 4-6 shells, but also the mods to fill them.

So, for spending fragments & maybe credits, I'd do it more like this:
  1. tactical
  2. i306 (frags to upgrade boat-anchor iRating items .. ie. your lone 268 when the rest is 284)
  3. augments & set-bonus
  4. stat twiddling to taste

The reason for spending frags only on boat-anchors is that it will speed your climb to 306 without unduly sapping your fragment pile. Tactical before set is another fast step up and one you can do long before 306. Augments are often overlooked as an early step up, but they can be a very nice boost, especially before you hit the point where your set-bonus starts paying off. No need for the very best at first, too; 73s are quite close in performance to the 74s and even the lower ones are much nicer than nothing.

For set-bonus itself, seriously consider The Victor if you run a lot of FPs and/or have many alts. I chased the classic ideal set bonus first and then made a victor set for alts. Turned out the victor set is just plain nicer than the main set -- not for actual parsed DPS or tanking, but for speed and survival. It makes FPs so much faster and smoother that I made two victor sets (dps & tank) and use them over the "bis" class sets almost always.

Ever run in a group with that tank or dps that just seems to have more HP than everyone and races from pull to pull without stopping? That what The Victor set does.

Thanks for your answer, it is remarkable.

I was actually ignoring the left side while leveling, just using what I was getting from quests, I might follow your advice with my alts

It is clear what I have to do now:

- Ask one question. There isn't any way to nuy/acquire a specific modification without relying on RNG, is there?

- Learn about augments! (Guide available)

- Learn about Amplifiers! (Guide available)

Cheers!

Not that I know of. Keep in mind that all the parts are Bound To Legacy, so you can keep 306 level ones to use on alts. And also keep in mind the mix & match nature of the left side items. For example, a Critical earpiece + Alacrity Implant, has basically the same stats as an Alacrity Earpiece + a Critical Implant.

Don't worry too much about augments until you get your bonus set. Mk.11 slots and related augments are "best" but expensive. Mk.10 level units are almost as good, and a lot cheaper.

I haven't done much with amplifiers. They seem to mostly be just minor details that I've ignored so far.
