Can some help me, As I collect Planet Comms should I first increase damage by weapon or improve armor rating?

i'd say it depends on what class/role you are. if you are a tank, i'd go for the armor rating. if you are DPS, i'd pick up new weapons first, etc. could get whatever it is you think you lack in the most.

Currently I am a Guardian and using Focus skill tree (Wanted to try something different. Also PVE only with some grouping, still learning that.)

If you solo or are under L30, I would definitely prioritize the hilt/barrel regardless of spec.

If you would like to fullfill a tank role above L30, the armorings become important. Below L30 (roughly), there isn't that much differentiation between specs such that the tank needs to be that tanky.

If you're soloing, kill time is more important for leveling

While leveling, I tend to lean towards what's the biggest upgrade, regardless of roll.
It won't do you alot of good to be in up to date armor, with a weapon 10 levels old.
Whenever possible, I upgrade my gear in flashpoints and use planet comms on my companion.
