Armor certification question

Forgive me if this information is out there somewhere, but I can't find it.

I've basically bought armor twice (meeting the requirments on the list when
I examined it) and both times I was told that I lacked the certification to
wear this armor. Is there a guide or something available that will tell me
what I can or can't wear? Also, how do I know if I'm certified to wear an
armor and how do I *get* certified?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

There are now 3 armor types, the professions you have will determine which
type you're certified for. Information taken from the Armorsmith's Forum.
The types are:

Assault: Bounty Hunter, Commando, Squad Leader
Appearances: Chitin, Composite, Ithorian Sentinel, Kashyyykian Hunting,
Factional

Battle: Carbineer, Combat Medic, Creature Handler, Doctor, Fencer, Pikeman,
Ranger, Swordsman
Appearances: Bone, Marauder, Padded, Ithorian Defender, Kashyyykian Black
Mountain, R.I.S. (quest), and Factional

Recon: BioEngineer*, Pistoleer, Rifleman, Smuggler
Mabari, Tantel, Ubese, Ithorian Guardian, Kashyyykian Ceremonial, and
Factional

* BioEngineers only receive hindrance mitigations equal to "basic" core
armor.

<back to my own words>
The Factional above will vary... Scout Trooper Armor is Recon, Rebel Marine
Armor is Recon, there is then also a Battle and an Assault version for both
factions.

Also, there are 3 classes of armor within each category. Basic, 'normal',
and Advanced. They vary by the amount of protection they offer and more
importantly, the amount of hindrance they offer. If you're a novice BH for
instance, you'd want relatively Basic Composite otherwise you'd have
penalties to Rate of Fire, Movement, etc. As you progress through your
profession to master, you eliminate most penalties from armor. Note
however, that it is possible to slice armor above the norm for Advanced
armor and thus, for a Master Whatever, to suffer penalties due to having
armor that's still 'Too good for them".

If you're only a Starter profession and have no elite combat professions,
then you are not certified for any armor.

TK and Jedi Defenders get Innate armor. TKs lose that innate armor if they
wear any other armor. Everyone can equip a Personal Shield Generator
(including TK & Jedi) though it only protects against ranged energy attacks.
Artisans can now use Ranger crafted Camo kits to try to avoid being killed
while on harvester/surveying runs.

I hope that helps.

This is in your Profession tree. Any advanced combat profession will
have access to armor. Look for your Armor Mitigation. That will tell you
what kind of armor you can wear. If you aren't in an advanced
profession, then you can't wear armor.

Most Professions -> Battle Armor
Squad Leader, Bounty Hunter, Pikeman? -> Assault Armor
Rifleman, and a few others -> Recon

So I guess this explains a question I have...I am a master pistoleer and I
have recon scout armor which a week ago I was wearing with no problems.
Then I went on vacation for about a week and when I came back I have armor
hinderance when I put it on. I checked the stats and it isn't much but is
it because the stats on scout armor are so good? Now even masters are
hindered a bit? Also I had it sliced as well so maybe that had something
to do with it...So now I don't know if for PVP I should be wearing my super
energy resistant scout trooper armor with the hinderance or my mediocre
assault armor (I'm Master BH as well).
Any suggestions?

Lightsabers and most guns are going to be Energy damage so unless you have
Really good energy on your Assault Armor, the recon is probably better even
with the penalties. It depends on what penalties you have though. A PSG
backing up the Assault might help bring it up to an acceptable level with
the recon, or not.

Or course, a macro to switch armor might be good for when people haul out
the Tusken Rifle or FWG5 since they're Kinetic weapons.

I don't PvP much though, so most of my comments are from PvE orientation.

Yeah, I quit after cu hit...well..kinda. My jedi-account is still active
and I log in once in a while, but I hate it. SWG lost its "uniqueness"...
it's just another MMORPG now. Very sad.
