Short Guide to a very long Grind (Optimize gear grind)

Not all gear are in equal demand, far from it. The demand for gear ranges from just 16 pieces (Nubian Design Tech Mk1 prototype) to more than 9000 (Carbanti Mk3 salvage).

Here's how much you need of all possible gear if you want to fully equip all 92 characters (current as of September). You might not reach there in this lifetime, but it gives you a rough idea of what gear is in high / low demand.

Then here's where to obtain the most demanded gear pieces, trying to optimize grinding for multiple hard-to-get gear at once.
For instance, if you need Sienar Holo Projectors Mk2, it's better to hit node Dark-Side 7A (at 10 energy) than 3H (at 6 energy), because you get a chance to get some other high-value gear there as well.
Note: always buy everything you see from the Shipments Store (at 800 - 2700 credits), because you'll need them at some point, and that's really cheap.

Note 2: This selection doesn't take character shards into account. But in the end, I found that grinding gear is way more tedious than grinding characters, even the ones that have only a couple of hard nodes.

    Do or do not...
  • Well that was a depressing read haha! Very well done though
  • Well, on the good side, you see that Raid gear isn't such a blocker after all... Once you get past through the first 3 or 4 you really need urgently, you'll still be blocked on Stun Guns and Holo Projectors before them.

    I also concluded that it's now worth for me to purchase 300 credits Holo Projectors from shipments, rather than grind them.

  • One question: In the number of pieces required are counted also the ones used to craft other pieces? I mean, for mk3 holoprojectors, are counted the pieces used to craft a full holoprojector, plus all the pieces to craft mk5 furnaces?

    Thanks for the list and the effort. truly helpful.
  • Nice work!
  • Nice! been thinking of using gems to buy gear instead of grinding. This helps prioritize what to buy and what to grind.

    @JoseIrimia Thanks. Yes it does fortunately. That includes all usage of a piece, including as ingredient for another one (only counting currently available gear, not future gold gear).
    Note that the ones that are in bold are pieces that are NOT used to craft anything else.
