I've just arrived as a lvl 50 sith sorcerer and i know that you can get Rakata gear by running hard and nightmare mode operations but can you get it on Galactic trade network, and if so how much do it usally cost?

Unfortunately, no, you can't get Rakata Armor and weapons from the GTN. They're Binds on Pickup, and permanently bound to whoever picked them up when they drop from the HM or NiM Operations and I believe also Lost Island HM (please correct me if I'm wrong). Most of them also, if I remember correctly, are bought with Rakata item tokens, which are what actually drop from those Ops and Lost Island FP.

Honestly, unless you're going for looks, you're better off sticking to Columi and saving your Black Hole Commendations until you can get a full set of Black Hole gear. Then just move the mods over to the Columi set, and then BOOM! Instant Campaign set.

There is another option as well though. I currently have my armormech maxed (400) and can craft rakata grade armor if I learn the schematic from the skill trainer. These are, however, BOP so unless you want to seriously gear out a companion or strip a few mods out; they are worthless. To be completely honest I have no idea how I was able to leran these schematics (so don't ask) but it is a option. Since it affects Armormech, I assume that it also affects Synthweaving as well since that is another armor crafter.
Kill a thousand taun-taun's and nobody cares. Kill OPOD and the galaxy cries out in terror. RIP .

It's on the fleet, on your faction's capital planet, and on Nar Shaddaa.

It's very clearly marked on the fleet map, as the four main sections are all labeled.
The Morrowbringer Legacy The Red Eclipse (PvE) [EU]
Deep into that darkness peering, you reach out your hand and grasp what you are searching for.
Now ring the bells that sweep away the darkness; the bells that beckon tomorrow's dawn.

All you can make is bracers and belts, and they have no mods or armor in them as they are not modable. They aare good to make when you are just gearing up. But later replace them with orange's and put in armors and mods from higher gear most times it will be better than the drops (Dread Guard exculded).
