How do I get good gear for my imperial agent/sniper?

I'm confused...I'm on my sniper, level 50. it's impossible to get in flashpoints no matter how many times i use the group finder, it just does not work. I'm not sure what gear I need for my sniper, he's got just about everything on the far left damage tree. Is there any level 50 orange quality gear that is better than the tionese stuff i got him? right now he's wearing the tionese enforcer gear. i'm not sure what the next best gear is to get, should i just go straight for Makeb or try to do some more heroics? I'm confused!


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

While you could do Makeb with the tionese stuff I would do the Black Hole and Section X Dailies, and maybe even throw in the Ilum dailies to get classic comms and bump him up to campaign gear. You can do the regular FP instead of the HM flashpoints as they drop the same gear only difference is 1 classic comm per drop as compared to 2. But even the lvl 50 HM flashpoints are doable in tionese gear as a dps.

Make sure you get stuff based with cunning, and check out the The Walking Carpets website for their guide for the sharpshooter Gunslinger if you are going far left tree on your sniper. They are the same thing for your sniper just different names. But it will give you an idea of how much power, crit and surge you want as well as good rotation to use.

With Ilum and Black Hole dailies you only get classic comms unless you do the weekly Black Hole but with Section X you also get Basic comms which will be the next level of gear after the campaign stuff.

Or if you have enough credits you could just buy the basic level gear mods armor and enhancements. (Anything with a 28 after it) They are pretty cheap on the gtn, at least on the Shadowlands server they are. If you have a good cybertech person you could even make the armor and mods yourself but I found almost just as easy and cheaper to buy the stuff.

Edit. On a side note. If you do try Makeb right from the get go, You could get some good blue gear from armor to earpieces and implants. Makeb does have some really decent drops but also has drop for like lvl 47 to 49 for some reason. If you do the droid seeker missions you could get somre green 28 gear. But by the time you can get the droid seeker missions you should already be better geared from other drops.

Personally I went the daily plus some FP's route with my Sentinel and reached lvl 55 and got better gear before even starting Makeb. Even did some warzones with her and got some pvp relics and implants for her.

Edit again: Another thing to consider is if you have a lot of planetary comms you can go to the makeb vendor on fleet and buy rakata mods and armor and enhancements which is pretty much between tionese and campaign gear. I think it is basically rakata stuff. Gives you a little more to work with.

I basically tho used those to gear out my comp starting out. I used the healer Dr. Lokin and then gave him my old stuff as I upgraded since both use cunning.


Feel Free To Disagree.....Most People Do Anyways

The thing is, you're better off doing those flashpoints with a guild. Not random people.

That's because the Imperialist Meatbags are made up of alts for the most part. The main guild is Republic (The Walking Carpets) and most of the activity is there. We rarely do stuff on the imp side as a guild, but we do play on that side occasionally.

Well, my "main" is on the Imp side. I tend to think I'm probably the most active Imp player of the guild. It's not like there's never anyone on, but most haven't gotten their Imp characters to 55 yet. I'm always up for doing HMFPs on the Imp side, though, haven't done enough of them anyway.

Just wait for the 2XP Weekends coming up, you will see many people playing on the Imp side. I have 2 level 50 Imps, so I know I will be working on more by then. The Imp side got busy for awhile, but with 2.0 people had to get there Rep toons to 55 for ops.

Now if you guys want to get a set time going for HM FPs or HM 55 FPs, I will work on getting my healer leveled. She is ready for HM FPs, but I need a little gear and level for 55.

Also what relic are you using? If you do not have the dread gurard or the campaign relic, get the free matrix cube. http://www.swtor-spy.com/guides/matrix-cube-guide/1047/ http://crewskills.net/guides-and-ove...shards-relics/ http://www.swtor-spy.com/datacrons/
