As more and more people near level 50 the demand for Grade 5 and 6 materials is increasing, luckily I've managed to put together a guide for farming all Grade 5 and 6 materials on Ilum for each of the 3 important gathering skills (Bioanalysis, Scavenging, and Archaeology). I'm currently working on a Slicing guide but I still need to do some research into it. But for now, these are by far the best paths for farming Grade 5 and 6 materials on Ilum for all gathering professions (Republic of course, as I mention in the title)

Archaeology

Scavenging

Bioanalysis

Also, here is a video covering each of these paths:

Also I've put together a Republic Chest farming guide:

But that's not entirely related to the gathering professions =P

Since no one was impressed with my first set of guides, here is a another set listing all the end game materials and missions for each set of Gathering Professions.

Whew, as an Imperial I thought my secret stash was discovered. Alas, it is not!
Dual Targeting, any AAA MMO released today should have this included. Don't let your next one release without it.

So what exactly is Dual Targeting? You have 2 targets available at all times, one offensive and one defensive. That's it, it's that simple.

*Snicker Snicker* If it is on Ilum with how much I farm there I shall soon find it! *Evil laughter*

Working on a few more Ilum farming locations. One is a Champion mob that almost everyone can take down at level 50 that has a fairly decent drop rate on epic items

With 1.2 (tonight) Credits are going to be used for so much more so bookmark this thread if you want to make a ton of them for when 1.2 goes live!

I will be tweaking Red Goo with the 1.2 changes. Figured I would post that in here. Also I am working on the two Champion mobs farming guides on Ilum. I'll get some work done on them while the servers are down tonight hopefully.

The matts you talk about, while useful, is beaten by end-game mods from dailies and matts from HM/Operations. However, this has changed with 1.2 (as these matts can come from missions or purchased), so if you start documenting a HowTo guide for those that have yet to explore the end-game content (especially where there might be a gear barrier to progress), you'll get more interests.
