6.0 Gearing For Returning Player

Hello All,

I am pure PvPer, not really interested in PvE at all. I also just returned to the game after missing most of the last two xpacs, I played maybe a couple of months. The gearing system killed it for me, but I heard it has changed since the Lead Dev was outted and the game has a new one.

With that said, what is the best way to gear through PvP? Is it overly complex? Any returning player advice towards this goal would be appreciated. Thanks.

Honestly the fastest way to gear is MM flashpoints. Pvp rewards are pretty bad right now.

Thanks for the tip! Do you collect the gear, or is galactic command, or are there tokens/vendors? What am I looking at specifically? Thank you in advance!

Any content you do will give you loot based off of your current I rating. Some of that loot will be a couple of i levels above what youre wearing. Equip it. As you get more upgrades, the i lvl of the gear that drops for you will go up, until you reach 306, where you can chase specific armouring, mod and enhancement upgrades.

As has been mentioned, spamming hammer station FPs is the quickest way to do the above. Actually taking part in war zones isnít so good.

Have fun spamming master mode hammer station over and over again to get through your 13 tiers of gear to reach 306 in a gear system that is even more rng than the galactic command was.

Thanks for the replies. Luckily doing the Oddessan? prologue gives you catch up gear. So assuming im using that as a full set, how long can be anticipated to gear up? A couple of days? Weeks? Months?

A few days to reach 306 if you spam flasphoints. A few weeks to min/max depending on your rng luck.
