Well poo. Since I don't PvP, recruit gear was worthless as gear on two of my 50's. By the time they got to 50, I had collected enough gear that I had surpassed the stats of the recruit, so the credits were a nice bonus.

Guess I have no reason at all to get the crap now.

On my latest 50, I had Columi mods (in legacy gear) ready to go, but I used the Recruit token to gear up my companion to run dailies and such. Of course, this only works if your main companion is the same class as you.

Therefore I did a little research and found out that apparently it's not a good idea to do HM FP's without Op gear - i.e. Columi/Tionese/Rakata. Therefore I will, unfortunately, have to go against my initial hopes and do ops. So here are several questions.

1. As to gearing, for my first op would Black Hole gear be acceptable?
2. Relating to the question above, you get BH commendations from doing Dailies, right? (I'm just finishing Corellia)
3. What is the shortest and/or easiest Op? (I've heard Eternity Vault)
4. How many Ops would I have to do to get a full set of gear?
5. Can I get the gear in Story Mode or must I do HM Ops?
6. How long is the shortest Op?
When you hit 50 you got free recruit gear (if you don't have it get it as a mission reward via PvP terminal). That gear is sufficient to beat HM Foundry - Operation gear is actually better than what you need

Been Running Hardmodes T1 (have not got to LI yet) Ran first Opp succesfully.

Question that I have though is it necessary to run in the shells for the bonuses? I ripped out all the mods and put them into my adaptive sand people gear. All 56mods with one set of 61BH mods, BH Bracers and Rataka Belt.

Do I need to have one set for when I want to run around in SP Gear and another set to swap into just for the bonuses?

My Operative is too low level to comment on the set bonuses. I do know that some set bonuses can be "meh" (e.g. Sage dps) and other set bonuses are spectacular (e.g. Commando dps)

If you find your healing as a Scoundrel is really improved by the set bonus, then you would need to keep your Columi/Rakata shell, at least until you get Campaign gear or Dread Guard gear. The set bonuses for those are tied to the armoring, so you can rip it out and put it in any moddable gear and keep your set bonus.

The 4 part-set bonus for pve-Sawbones is **** though, 15% boost to crit chance on Kolto Pack? Yay. I try to run a mixed set in pve, so I would have a lowered cost on Kolto Cloud and have it's healing done boosted by 15%. PvP 4 part bonus is better (+5 max energy) but not that great either.

Okay, went to fleet and got my trooper's Recruit gear - wow, it looks really cool! I'm gonna level my BH now so I can (hopefully) be 50 when HK-51 is available, or pretty close, so I can do HM Foundry soon after. Is there anything else I need to know? You guys've been awesome help - thanks! I can keep the current mods in the Recruit gear, right? Nothing I'd need to change in order to do HMs?
