Not very well versed in the whole gearing process yet, but for a level 75 looking to gear up...what is the 'stat stick' light saber I should be trying to acquire? Already collecting gathering storm gear but nothing seems to list what to use only than the 'hilt'. Thanx in advance.

The lightsaber is treated as any other piece of gear. Fill it with a hilt, mod, enhancement and augment to compensate for whatever you’re missing:

Accuracy to 110%
Alacrity to hit the alacrity break points
Crit to 3000-3300 (lower with a high alacrity build)

Also, you get to throw in a color crystal. At end game should be Eviscerating +41, IIRC.

You should have a focus in your offhand that provides extra stats with another color crystal.

TY wilygrayfox! What do you mean by, 'Alacrity to hit the alacrity break points'

People generally target specific time durations for GCD (global cooldown.) Lower GCD is often (not for all Disciplines) better. 1.3s GCD is almost universally recommended for Lightning/Telekinetics. For Lightning/Telekinetics Disciplines:

Alacrity of 331 gives 1.4 second GCD

Alacrity of 1895 gives 1.3 second GCD

More experienced players stack higher Alacrity (while playing Lightning/Telekinetics) in order to periodically achieve 1.1s GCDs temporarily during long fights. (Operations bosses.)
