My advice for gearing a mar is pvp till 50 to ensure you have 2000 wz comms and some rwz comms if you want. When you hit 50 get the rec gear then get a bm piece and trade rwz comms for wz comms to get more bm or use them to insta upgrade to wh. Next run hm flashpoints till u get tio/colum then run ops and continue upgrading gear.(this is for a pve build). For pvp do the same except do pvp instead of flash points for more comms to get more bm. Once you are in full bm start upgrading to wh if you kept all the rwz comms from weeklies and dailies you should be near ready for at least one piece. I would suggest staying with weaponmaster instead of ripping out mods due to the undying rage boost. This doesnt seem worthwile but it can easily change the course of a fight. Ive tanked Soa at the end of EV for a pylon drop before while he was in enrage with this easily. Of course this is my personal preference. My biggest piece of advice is to specailize it to your play-stile. As a side note if you run ops with a heal that has trouble run annihilation just be sure to avoid group heals against the infernal council on EV. Hope people find this helpful . ( I am a hardcore raider for reference so that does color my opinion.)

So why the the foestoppers instead of the pummelers ear piece?

Is it just for more surge? or are you trying to keep your crit up a little too?

i would have thought you'd want the Pummelers for more power stacking.

Also note you can do Step 1-4 WHILE doing Warzones so it doesn't impair your progress. Always make sure you are grinding out comms while you are doing all of the below for the fastest gearing up process.

If I were to start over again and rebuild my Marauder this is exactly the order and process I would go.

Step 0:

Get all the Strength, Endurance and if you're a freak like me Willpower Datacrons. Willpower datacrons boost your force attacks like dots and force scream. Then level up all your companions affection to 10k (The non droid ones). When you do this you will gain 1% accuracy, 1% surge, 1% crit, % of HP increase, and increased healing on yourself.



Step 1:

Level up Biochem for the Stim, also pickup slicing. Since you have 10k affection on all your toons once you have your stim, run slicing missions while you do warzones and sell the mission discoveries. You'll make enough money to supplement buying V-1 Seismic Grenades, Warzone Medpacs, and Warzone Adrenals. All a must in my opinion for doing well in RWZ's and extremely well in Regular WZ's.



Step 2:
Get the recruit gear.



Step 3:
Then when you replace all the recruit gear, replace it with the BATTLEMASTER VINDICATOR armor and Lightsabers. With the Armor you'll have to rip out the mods and put them in a medium armor equivalent slot. Buy the POWER relics



Step 4 if you can afford it:

Buy 18 strength + 12 Endurance Augments and put them in every slot you have.



Step 5:

DO NOT BUY THE WAR HERO BRACERS/WAISTCORD, SEE STEP 6 FOR THIS

Buy the War Hero Vindicator Armor and the War Hero Foestopper's MK-1 Device, and 2x War Hero Pummeler's MK-1 Package as well as 2 War Hero Power Relics. The War Hero Vindicator Armor will give you the 10% damage on Force Charge which is SIGNIFICANTLY more useful for DPS than the Weaponmaster set. You'll find that you aren't using Undying Rage on CD, but that you are in fact using Force Charge on CD.



Step 6:

Buy the Legacy Bracers/Waistcord. I have the Advanced Might Armoring 26's in mine, but you can use 25 if you can afford them. Use Advanced Deft Mod 58A MODS until you start Min/Maxing (Step 7)



Step 7:

Time to MIN/MAX. This is what you're completed gear should look like, note the build doesn't include the Stim:

http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/characte...6-527b62574fe8

The difference between a fully Min/Maxed War Hero Marauder and a Regular fully War Hero geared Marauder is like going from Recruit gear to Battlemaster gear. It's a massive difference. I'm not fully optimized yet and I have 1208 expertise, 623.1 Bonus Damage, 25.87% crit, 78.80% surge, 98.67% Accuracy, and 20.1k HP fully buffed with Stim. (I also have all 4 class buffs so that helps)

The first thing you want to replace is all your mods so get: (Note the Vindicator Lightsaber already has this Mod and the second best enhancement so you save commendations)

Mod
War Hero Vindicator's Handgear (Gloves)
51 strength (++)
32 endurance (+)
39 power (++)
30 exp

You will get the best Warrior Mod and the SECOND best Enhancement. Replace all your mods and 3 enhancements with what is inside the Vindicator Gloves. Keep the Chest and Helm Enhancement as it has Accuracy + Power and you need the Accuracy for Carnage.

Once you do that, now it's time to replace the enhancements in 3 pieces of your armor and both your lightsabers with:

Enhancement
War Hero Force-Mystic's Gloves
27 Endurance (+)
30 Expertise
41 Power (++)
53 Surge (++)

Use this guide for whatever step you are on, but if you're starting fresh, do it like this for maximum enjoyment.
So let me just get this straight in my head. Get BH heavy armor and rip the mods out to replace in regular 50 med armor gear you get on galactic craiglist..... in replace of regular med armor BH gear, then get war hero heavy armor and rip the mods out and place them in the med war hero gear you can buy with regular credits. Is that right? What happens to expertise before you get to war hero?

Also would this gear build be the same with rage?

Rip out the mods and put them in any orange armor you want - expertise in on the mods.

Its the same grind for either the weaponmaster or the vindicator... but the 4 piece set bonus is better on the Vindicator. However you won't get the set bonus until you can rip the WH armorings out since the BM set bonus is attached to the armor shell.

Its cheaper to get the mods out of the soc and vindicator sabers now... since they don't require a BM trade in anymore.
