They either have done a lot of PVP and have gotten some good stuff, or they have mostly orange gear and have all blue or purple mods/armoring/barrels/enhancements from quests or from crafting.

As far as I'm aware, there is one new daily on Ilum. And hopefully they fixed the broken one which adss another commendation possibility.

By simply playing the game?

I don't mean to be blunt, but if you get your hands on orange gear, and keep the armour, mods, etc, always updated (either through quest rewards, stuff you craft, or stuff you buy), you will always be competitive, pre-50.
Time spent following TOR pre-launch = 3 years
Time spent enjoying TOR before I was bored = 2 months
Account cancelled in sheer disbelief that this was Bioware's best effort

Has this guide been updated now that 1.2 is live? The new recruit gear and things sorta changes things up a bit. What's changed for 1.2?
Simple happy language words!

A warning to all Fresh 50s: the information in this guide is rather outdated. Coupled with the 1.2 patch notes, however, it is probably still quite useful.

That is what I was about to inquire about....I couldn't find anywhere on the fleet to change my warzone commendations into mercenary commendations. Plus it appears that all the battlemaster gear is bought using WZ comms exclusively.
