So it's orange gear? I guess it's just good for looks then or is the gear itself good with mods/enhancements?

You can make it extremely viable and could continue using it until you start replacing it with the Tier 2 Columi gear. With the Daily Comms Armoring as well as the Mods from the Heroic 2+ and the Epic Enhancements from Ilum/Artifice, you only end up at most, losing a point or two of Stats when compared to the Tionese gear, plus you have better control over which secondary stats you want, for example Defense versus Absorption.

I have found that I do not like the way some of the tier gear is currently itemized which is extremely frustrating as we have no current recourse at the moment other than yanking mods out of other tier gear and trying to patch it that way (which means for me, probably buying the Tier 2 Columi pants over and over again and yanking out the absorption mods).

Thanks for the info Blev. After seeing your pics, I really really want that set. I will be saving my credits and hoping for some drops

So pleased I found this thread. The armour looks as amazing as I thought it would!

So far, I've got the boots and gloves of the AH. On the lookout for the rest!

Also, the recent Dev post explaining that soon, end game raid gear will be fully moddable, really makes this set (or any Orange custom set) viable for end game in the long term.

Anyone else noticing a lack of Battlelord items dropping or being found on the GTN? I haven't seen a single new Battlelord of Colossus item in around two weeks.

I'm actually starting to wonder if they have some kind of loot threshold, where only a certain number can drop in a given time period.

Then again, I could just be amazingly unlucky, but given the amount of time I've spent searching for them, I would have excepted to see at least ONE piece lately, of either the trooper or jedi sets.

I had been buying the battlelords' gear from the GTM for a while but just received some Battlelord's greaves from an ancient premium mission box which I got from a standard treasure hunting mission (I've got treasure hunting 400).

Just need the armguards and saber to complete the battlelords' look now...

They are fairly rare and difficult to find. I've been scouring the GTN, putting Companions out on lockbox missions, and doing all level 50 missions that result in blue lockboxes and have only seen items out of those boxes twice (and not even from the boxes I have gotten).

I think the box I got my kit from was a white standard quality box. It did come with a permium credit box so I think my treasure hunting mission did crit (as it would normally only gives me one box).

I've run maybe 40 treasure hunting missions for tier 6 lockboxes and this is the first battlelords' drop I've had, so they are quite rare.
