Is there a way to get damage reduction against these two damage types other than the buffs Mark of Power/Force Valor?

In PVP, I'm fairly sure Expertise lowers all damage, including Elemental and Internal damage. Otherwise, classes and specs heavy on Elemental and Internal damage get an unfair advantage early on in PVP gear progression.

Snipers themselves do not have any talents to boost Resistance or Internal/Elemental damage reduction.

For PVE, snipers should ideally hardly ever take damage. Most unavoidable damage is kinetic or energy. Certain bosses in EC deal Internal and Elemental damage, though.

I'm speaking strictly PvP. I'm not 50 yet, only 40. So I have only 11 expertise. Warhammer Online is my primary PvP game. I'm used to being able to stack against any and all specific damage types through gear, gear modification, consumables, as well as buffs from other classes.

Reroll assasin.

Or you can take tier 6 2/2 talent in engeneering tree, it will raise your reduction by 6 % agains everything but while in cover.
