the developers of SWTOR have release a little addtional solid info about Tuesdays Update...
Galactic Command Gearing Changes, 5.1 and Beyondhttp://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=911514
Most of what is in here I explained in my previous post. The new stuff is that there will be a character legacy perk to buy CXP bonuses of +2/4/6/8/10% and that the command token can buy a +15% boost that stacks with the legacy boost, but not with the Cartel Market CXP boost.
Unassembled Pieces and Command Token Costshttp://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=911531
This show the actual Tokens per Crate you get at each tier, and the token cost for each tier of gear. (as they announced it take about 3 crates worth of tokens to get a piece of gear from that tier. big news here is it'll be GOLD pieces, not purple!!!
The PVE way of gearing: Unassembled Gear Pieces and Where to Find Themhttp://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=911528
explains which raids at which levels last boss drops which unassembled token
The PVP way of gearing: Unassembled Components and Their Vendorhttp://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=911530
This explains how many Component you get from each win or loss of each type of PVP, and the number of components it takes to buy each pieces of gear. This seems CRAZY expensive. It'll take 95 regular match or solo ranked match wins to get a tier 3 Chest, and you have to keep the previous tier shell to trade in for the next tier up
Not great news, but at least solid facts from the devs.
