Mixing PVP and PVE?! two set bonuses?!

That should be 5% bonus. It's the PVE bonus from the shell. At (4) Force master set gives +5% alacrity for 15 seconds and cannot happen more than every 20 seconds.

To a certain degree, it is do-able.
In saying that there are a total of 5 pieces that can count to any set bonus, so at best you could only pick up the 2 piece bonus from different sets.

This is actually something I've done for PvE, because I didn't consider the 5% alacrity bonus to be all that useful to a Balance spec sage, I instead opted for the 2 piece PVP set bonus, which is heal you for 0.5% of your health everytime dots do damage.

Basically I PvPd for a while to get the BM helm and gloves (because they clashed with my outfit the least) and then just placed Black Hole mods in them (gives me the 2 piece set bonus without the expertise which is useless for PVE)

In saying that, without a good tank in the group I pose more of a danger to myself, because I do quite respectabe DPS but generate extra threat from self healing. it hasn't been uncommon for me to pull threat from a mediocre tank during a boss fight, But when I've got a tank that knows me and how I'm setup, it makes the healers life that much easier cause they really don't have to worry about me, on several occasions I've pulled myself from the brink of death.

It is doable. I have the level 2 set bonus for both pvp and pve. But, you can't get to level 4. Right now my sage has both reduce disturbance/TK throw by 2, AND reduce mind crush cooldown by 1.5 seconds.

All you need to do is pull out your WH armorings that have the set bonus you want, and replace the armoring in the shell you have.
No sure if this is the best for PVE though, as I have seen discussions saying full PvE set bonus is better for parsing DPS

You can get both; by for example using 2 x BM pvp pieces (set bonus tied to item) and 4 x pve campaign armourings (set bonus tied to armouring).

I wonder, if it is possible to combine different Tier sets? For example if I take 2 parts of Rakata Froce-Mystic's and 2 any other Columi Force-Mystic's parts - will I get -3.0 seconds Healing Trance cooldown reduction, or it will be treated as 4-parts bonus?

you can pull the armorings out of the WH off hand and throw them in the PVE armor shells for the PVE set bonus, a 2/2 set bonus is ideal...I used the reduced cool down on bubble or the dot tick, and the cool down on our channel heal for when I am healing in PVP

your other option is advanced PVE armorings for a sacrifice in expertise...but since you should have them in your bracer and belt I wouldnt...

All that needs to be done (and done before 1.6) is purchase i.e. Battle Master Gloves and Boots. THEN put your mod, enhancement, and **armoring** in it... **THE ARMORING cannot be, i.e. an armoring with a set bonus tied to it like the campaign and dread guard chest, glove, head ect... one must get it crafted by a cybertech OR they can be pulled from D.G. or Campaign off hand's** i personally had my two armoring crafted. This will allow one to have the first tier set bonus from both the PVP and PVE without the expertise.

The tier bonuses don't stack - combine 2 ForceMystic or 4 for appropriate set bonuses.

You can get two 2xset bonus from Mystic and Master.

I don't know if this has been fully answered or not, but for a while on my healer, I was rocking the 2sets for both pve and pvp for healing (use regular 26/27 mods in Battlemaster shells, instead of campaign). I decided to swap it out after a while, so I could more easily maintain my force using the 4set of pve.

But the decreased lockout on Force Armor, combined with the amazing pve 2set was very nice. Very nice indeed.
