From level 33 upwarts I can craft Guardian mods and armorings.

Maybe it's just a bug for you.

Must be a bug for me as well cause I have zero guardian mods in my list. Level 39.

My friend is has cybertech maxed and she can craft guardian mods from level 33 and up. She has even re some in blue and purple quality, so it seems like it is a bug for some of you.

Ok, can someone link these craft-able guardian mods? Cause I can't find any besides the guardian armoring.

So, it's not a bug then. There aren't ANY craftable guardian mods!

According to Torhead (granted not the most reliable source of info these days), you would be correct. There's not a single Guardian *mod* listed in the schematic list for Cybertech.

- Guardian (Commando/Force Wielder/Patron) Armoring: Yeah, none of these are craftable until Level 33. However, I've started noticing (as I've been leveling new characters again after getting a first round of 8 to or close to 50) that the armoring/mods/hilts/barrels you buy from Commendation Vendors are almost exclusively for tanks. Which means if you're a DPS or Healer trying to depend on commendations to keep your gear up to date, you're equally SOL.

So, yeah, you can't craft them, but you should be getting them as options during quest reward drops and can buy them with planet comms.

(Personally, having realized the lack, I've been taking pity on the tank classes, of which I have three myself, and using the comms gathered as my lowbie DPS and Healer characters to buy up the tank Armoring and put them up on the GTN for cheap. They sell like crazy, too.)

- Mods: I havent tested this one out as thoroughly, but a friend of mine has observed the 'tank' mods are the ##B mods rather than the A's Cybertechers can craft. Again, only available from quest rewards and commendations.

Yes. It sucks. :P

Im a tank and am leveling up two other tanks right now and this is very very annoying! Was this an oversight by the devs? You can craft any other talent's armor and mods...just not ST/End needed by that type of tank.
Now while I see your logic, you want to level as a tank bu their is no lvl tank gear. My first lvl 50 was a shadow and i lvl'd asa tank. Shadow tanking is pointless till lvl32, by that point you have tools to tank with. Did you also look at the difference between purple lvl 49 gear and tionese? Outside of the obvious jump in HP you also get a ton of defense stats.... for the first the first you will have tanking stats that are above base. With how the content is set up , mainly the endgame content requires tanking stats. Up to level 50 you can mock tank by just being in tank stance with a sheild generator.

Synthweaving and Armormech are the only good ways of getting solid tanking gear while leveling.
