Just Hit 50 And Still Have No Idea What I'm Doing!

You don't have to worry about gearing T7. There's a puzzle on the ground that will help with that, just keep your eye out!

I am the same as you and still learning. I hit 50 months ago with my Sentinel and only just realised what I'm supposed to be doing with my gear.

It was beyond me why they can't just have a "Jedi Sentinel Gear Vendor" in fleet and you have to simply go get stuff from that guy when you need gear... If you have a Jedi Sentinel! But I had a gear epiphany the other day with one of my guildies explaining it to me for about the 5th time and have pretty much wasted many Black Hole comms in the process.

Good luck!

Also, put your enemies cast bar on and learn to interrupt stuff (Which took me ages to learn aswell.... As part of the Jedi Knight story which I raged at)

I just got my guardian to 50 recently and I've been running some of those solo dailies. I dig the Black Hole solo area. You can knock out those quests quickly.

I was disappointed when I came up 1 tionese commendation short of a complete set. If you count a weapon. I got the gear & the shield generator , made my belt & armguards, but not the light saber. So the set feels incomplete for me until I get that saber or upgrade my current one to match or surpass it. What I have at the moment is good enough to run those dailies though.

As a pure PvE player, I still feel like I am getting by through luck and improvisation. I was hoping to get some questions answered about crafting, gear and the story, or suggestions on places to look that aren't all written in MMO code that noobs like me can't decipher.

(1) I have gotten Tionese armor now at 50. Is this sufficient to get me to the end of the JK character story? (don't really care about OP or FP).

(2) Should I be equipping my companion in Tionese armor as well?

(3) I have collected several augment slot ingredients, but I understand that only armortech/armstech crafters can make actual augment slot kits. So, do I sell my ingredients on GTN and try to buy slot kits on GTN also?

(4) I have tons of low-level commendations from, e.g., Alderaan and Tattoine, that I never used because the dropped stuff was just as good IMHO. Is there a market for these? What do people do with them?

(5) If I want to do story-based flashpoints, will I never get more commendations? Do I have to do them in Hard Mode?

(6) Is there anything in Correllia except the Black Hole area (to get BH commendations)?

Thank you in advance as a noob player!
As a Jedi Sage I needed the Tionese gear to help on the last class quest. Gave Nadia the PVP kit. It made the difference between getting pwned repeatedly and winning. Looking ridiculous in the Tionese head gear is a plus.

Thank you all for the suggestions! I look forward to trying to survive the endgame

I'm in a comparable position to the OP -- playing a Jedi Guardian who just hit level 50 on Christmas Eve! -- although I played through two of the beta weekends and had the benefit of a buddy who was a "real" beta tester to talk me through the basics.

I too am a PVE player and SWtOR is my first real MMO (I did Pirates of the Caribbean Online briefly). Once I complete my story quest, I'll probably fiddle around with Corellia and Belsavis, maybe do a few high level regular flashpoints, maybe try to get HK-51, and then I think that's about it for my old Jedi. After that, I'll probably play through a different class, and K'reed will get play only to send credits and companion gifts to his legacy-mates.

In terms of equipment, I put the Recruit gear on Scourge, which is an unfortunate waste, since I rarely use him. I ripped the mods out of some of the Tionese pieces, and put them into "better" equipment. I have one of those Ziosk lightsabers, so I'm not giving that up, and after I hit level 50, I spent a night trolling the GTN and the Cartel market to find the right look for my guy.

So now I'm tooling around Corellia in modified Tionese equipment for me and whatever geat I find for Doc, and I think the only time I've died was when I walked away from the computer for a few minutes too close to a spawn point. My sense is that Tionese equipment, possibly with a few upgrades/augments, should be more than enough.

Thank you.
Yes, I was confused, but not by fleet itself. That was the first time a flashpoint was available, and I had no idea how to find someone to do it with. I sat by the entrance to the FP and waited for people to run past and I tried to /whisper to them to ask them to group with me. I had no idea about general chat, nor the "LFG" terminology, nor the Group Finder.

Yes, I was totally noob.

I was even more noob. The intro NPC said "only go with friends," and I figured I had Kira with me so I would be okay. I got slaughtered quickly on the Esselles.
