Hi Megatfx, first thank you for the good guide, I need an advice: i'm following your itemization and currently at MIN/MAXing War hero stage, have capped the RWZ comms before reaching lvl 50 but since it's not clear for me what will happen to these kind comms after 2.0 ( saw on pts they are disappeared), should i start to buy EWH bits and save it for later?
Or with 2.0 i will be able to skip this step since i'll get new gear?

Thank you in advance

Hmm... the OP of a thread in the Marauder forums without a PvP designation in its title is slamming me for not talking solely about PvP, and does not care about anything PvE related. This thread specifies Advanced Class and spec, but not PvP. Have it moved to the PvP forums, where it belongs.
You mean the actual opening post that clearly was talking about gearing only PvP wise wasn't enough of a clue, and the fact that it's only PvP related means it doesn't belong on the subclass forum that the OP is -only- talking about how to gear this subclass?

Just admit you're wrong and move on, guy.

I don't reread the original post of a thread every time I post in it. The fact is that this thread does have class and spec listed in it's title, but not a PvP designation. Thus it should be moved to the PvP forums. No 'if's, 'and's or 'but's. End o' story.

Let's get back on track here. I've just hit lv 50 on my marauder a few days ago and I'm not really sure what to do now. I'm trying to decide whether I should use my comms and get lv 50 WH gear now, or wait till 2.0 comes and get the 55 WH equivalent then. The problem is, I would have to stick to recruit gear which would be bad. I've also read that the weaponmaster set effects are changing in 2.0, so if I were to get lv 50 WH gear, should I go for Weaponmaster or stick to what this thread suggested? Any input would help. TY

Yeah, as a marauder it's a little painful to stock up comms while still in recruit gear. It just depends on how much you play. If you play a lot, I'd recommend getting full war hero (or close to it) and then stocking up on your Warzone and Ranked Warzone comms. If PvP is what you're into, that'll put you ahead of the game when you get to 55. Just don't turn your Ranked comms back into normal comms to buy the rest of the first PvP tier.

I would go ahead and get vindicator war hero gear. Unless you max out on ranked comms, don't spend them. I would however go ahead and buy the elite war hero power relics since they will not be around in 2.0.

alright guys, just need some quick advice here.

I made the mistake of reading this guide too late as I already have all the War hero WEAPONMASTER gear (relics, implants, and earpiece) MINUS the belt and bracers.

I didn't buy the VINDICATOR gear because I didnt realize I could rip out the mods and put em in. So my question is this:
Should I try to buy all the VINDICATOR gear now and replace my WEAPONMASTER mods or no? I have no idea when the new 2.0 patch is coming out, so I dunno what to do.

I don't see the new patch going live before the first half of April. Not with the current bugs to the new bolster system and the need to iron out the class balance with the new skills.

When we reach 55, there will be 2 options - Either our gear will be bolstered to the expertise level of the new level 55 recruit gear, or we'll be forced to start from scratch and use the recruit set. The devs are trying to get the first option working, so it will make sense to min/max now and have a decent bolstered gear at 55 than being forced to use the new Recruit gear, full of Critical rating, Alacrity and god knows what else.

In both cases, having the max possible WZ comms and ranked WZ comms will help you to buy some 55 gear immediately and start PvP-ing on a competitive level.

Also, make sure you have enough cash and a friend who can craft the new level 9 augmentation kits and augments. Most likely their price will be sky high on the GTN before more people can gather the new crafting materials and start mass-crafting augments and selling them.

Why not pick up Biochem instead of Cybertech?
