The different is ...

With level 70 and full 258 gear and augments you have it much easier in flashpoints
as a fresh level 75 with 270 green crap gear ....
Level 70 more hitpoints more primary damage and so on .... realy nice ...

I love it ....

Yes, sadly thats how it goes in MMOs. Its actually quite easy to get gear, but yes, you have to run Hammer station or Red Reaper Flashpoints on Master mode. The reason is that those are the fastest to complete and you will be getting gear drops based on your current gear rating. So always put on the highest rating you have to make sure that you are getting best drops.

When you reach 306 gear you will be optimizing also you need to assemble Tech Fragments and use them to buy set bonus gear from the vendors on fleet for you class.

Thanks, all. I still don't really understand the new gear system. I mean, I get what it's doing, but I am not sure what path I (Concealment Operative) should be taking to max out my gear.

Do I really need to worry about Tech Fragments now, or is it better to just wait until I hit 75 and get the new gear before I start focusing on that stuff?

You can use tech fragments to buy "random" gear pieces as you level. You don't want to waste them, of course, but it can make a big difference to upgrade your lowest pieces so that you can raise your total item rating.

For example, if all of your gear is 282, except you still have a 278 relic and belt, it's worth it to buy a relic and belt off the vendor for tech frags. If you want to reach 306 (max iLevel) as quickly as possible, that is.

Also, you may want to purchase set bonus pieces for your class if you reach the 5,000 tech fragment limit (as long as you have the 1,000,000 credits needed to purchase, of course). That way you don't waste tech frags.
