Molecular Stabilizers: What's the best ways to get them?

Another free, if grindy, way to get the Stabilizers/ Synthetics is by doing the entire set of Space dailies. Doing all of them yields 100 Fleet Comms and a Grade 8 Crafting Mat costs 200 Comms. If I'm remembering this correctly, it should only take 2 days a weeks to get a chance at either of the mats. On the off chance you don get the mats you wanted you could always sell the ones you got from the box as well.

Also, I've never RE'd a PVP piece before. Is it actually a 100% drop rate for Moles to come from a WH piece?

Yes, you get 1 or sometimes 2 everytime

Its as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror. (It was our companions, when they hear their gear is about to get RE'd)

I tried the space dailies for a while - and after opening about 8 boxes - I ended up with 11 Energy Matrix Cubes - not one Molecular Stabilizer - nearly went insane as the space dailies are possibly the worst grind in the game - so decided for the good of my health to stop these and do dailies instead and use the credits to buy the stabilizers!

^ This - crafting boxes have yielded matrices 4 out of the last 4 boxes I've purchased with fleet comms -- and 6 out of the last 7. Change the % in favor of stabs please, so at least I get something I want for the time I spend doing those missions.. and then I won't feel so bad watching Raid 1 leaders (space n00bs) take them all when we're doing TFB

EDIT: I was wrong. I got them mixed up with another crafting material. Disregard.

If it's full guild run, I don't have a problem with that. I think it's a good thing, that way the guild can prioritize what can/should be those spend on, like hilts and barrels which are hard to come by. Armorings, mods and enhancement can be easily attained by grinding black hole comms.
That being said, it'd be nice of course a way for everybody to get some of those like they were commendations.

That which does not kill you merely postpones the inevitable.

You can reverse engineer any PvE OR PvP armoring, mod, or enhancement if they are 26 or 27. This means black hole, as well as war hero gear! You need multiple toons to have the appropriate crafting skills though.

Steps:
On your main toon, spend a few days getting 50-60 black hole comms by doing the daily group finder, and weekly black hole quests.

Buy the cheapest piece of black hole gear. Rip out the armoring, mod, and enhancement. Buy a legacy armor shell and put the mods in it and email it to your other toon who can reverse engineer.
Cybertech - can RE the armoring and mod
Artifice? - can RE the enhancement

This will give you at the minimum, 3 stabilizers and possibly 6 if you're lucky. So in a nutshell, thats the master plan. Sure it takes a bit to set up if you arent there already, but if you are going for a truely uber account, this is the way to go. And you can also do the dailies on the other toons and pump out even more Stabilizers.

-----------------
Broken part: This is the part that I predict will have PvE people having a hissy fit:

In 1.6, war hero pieces cost non-ranked warzone comms. You will be able to buy war hero boots or gloves for like 900 warzone comms. That takes a solid 2-3 hours. But then you just RE the 3 things you pull out, and have 3+ stabs in a few hours of work. Sad part is, the PvP people are better set up to do this than the PvE people are. Hence my opinion on the complaints.
that is what i did and in no time i had hk all geared out. then again i have five fifties for dailies which four i do weeklies, hm and ops for the bh coms.

problem is most people have gone the biochem and or all harvesting crewskill route. now many of these people are just buying MY mats off the gtn which my CREW SKILLS reing make. oh the irony of it all.

By far the easiest (or at least most available) way is to get them from reverse engineering black hole gear. You can get 50 black hole comms in less than a week now, and each pair of boots/gloves will net you 3 or 4 stabilizers if you have the right crew skills. Plus a decent chance to learn schematics and make money off those as well.

I tried the fleet comms route too originally, but after getting 1 Matrix in a box, I just stopped doing that. Worthless item from a week of grinding space missions - no thanks! (My first box had 3 stabilizers in it, so I thought it was a pretty good way to do it, but 4 boxes later I haven't gotten that lucky again)

I'm stacking WZ comms since the 1.6 announcement on 3 toons, then I'll just RE a load of WH gear for the stabis, because I hate grinding the space missions.
