Sometimes greens have modification slots, but so far I've only run into a pistol and some of the droid armor schematics available to cybertechs.

Ok, I can modify the AA to the status that I want to have, but I still have one doubt. When We are level 50, We start using the gears that if you use the complete gear you gain a bonus for using the full gear. Do I still gain the bonus with the AA?

Prior to 2.0 only War Hero (PvP) and Campaign (PvE) gear had set bonus's that were transferable and it is tied to the armoring mod for that piece, Tionese/Columi/Rakata set bonuses are tied to the shell and therefore the set bonus could not be moved to a AA piece. Black Hole gear had no set bonus.
There are 5 pieces of gear that can be used to get the set bonus:
Headgear
Chest
Gloves
Legs (Greaves, Lower Robes etc)
Boots

In 2.0 commendations has changed significantly, best guide I found is at Dulfy.net. My best advise for leveling would be do those [2+} and [4+] missions as they usually reward a AA piece and use the comms to upgrade your mods in them and fill in missing pieces your not crafting. Don't forget your companion can wear the AA gear to! So if you get a reward that you like you can always, if possible (has to be of the same armor class) give your old piece to your companion, and keep their pieces upgraded as well as you level.

When I first started playing at launch I had no idea how the AA gear worked and was spending planetary comms buying new pieces hope this helps others not make the same mistake.

Take care

I read somewhere that the armoring mod now carries the set bonus, so:
1) If I took a new piece of the new tier gear and pulled the mods and put them in a piece of adaptive armor I will get the set bonus? That piece of adaptive armor would have exactly the same stats and armor as the piece of tier gear?
2) The Tionese/Columni/Rakata gear I hear the set bonus is still on the shell...so what would happen if I put in a new armor mod with a set bonus attached...would it change the set bonus or would the set bonus from the shell remain...could I get 2 4 piece set bonuses on the same set?

1) Yes that's correct

2) Nothing. All previous level 50 gear such as Tionese, Columi, Rakata and Black Hole had their vendors removed (Campaign Amorings are also removed). Campaign/Black Hole is now the lowest PvE tier for level 50 characters. (info copied from dulfy.net)

So Adaptive Armor overall rating will scale to the character you are equipping it to and have the max overall armor rating if you put the best mods into it?

Also if you buy an Adaptive Armor set on the Cartel Market will it be available for all or your characters you create or only 1?

Thats the exact thing that Adaptive armor does. If your at max level and you find a really cool adaptive piece you want then you can wear it and have the best stats.

(yes i know doublepost [side note we need post merge]) No its only that character. Though If you wait for a bit of time it becomes tradeable.

Adaptive armor is such a bad concept IMO
