You need to get your luck up to around the 1000 mark and your re'd factor around 125.

One method is to get the re'd bionic arm that ups it I think 10, then powerups, and exotics on a weapon, chest plate and I think a shirt.

then add luck to boots, gloves, hat, pants, belt etc.

then follow one of the guides for making +35. It takes awhile to make one so be patient. But, there are guides out there on SWG and I think here.

ps get luck jewelry too usually they are +25 but the bigger the better.

And you might enjoy Reverse Engineering 101, if there is something you have overlooked.

my R.E. guy uses the 3 exotics. a cybernetic arm and 3 P.U.'s to give me an R.E. score of 143. my luck unbuffed is 349. i usually get the buff though, and have very little problem making 35's. i highly recomend you make the P.U.'s asap. they really make a big differance. i also try and make my initial power bit from a loot drop which is 22+. prior to using the P.U.'s it took me over 200 combines to make a 35. and yes i counted :(

If you can get some good +25 stats it'll usually start at out at +28 or more and then it takes less time to get to +35

Also, don't forget to get some Fizz pudding from a domestic trader (adds about 150+ luck with good stuff) and Styptic Powder from the musta cube (3 flavors: 60, 80, 100 luck depending on which ingredients you use).

Oh! I just remember to group with a smuggler and have them bring out the junk dealer as that will add another +50 Luck.

Here is what my RE toons roll with.

RE Chance breakdown:

Code: Select all

+100 from lvl 90 Trader
+10 from Expertise Bonus (requires two points invested in Deconstruction Techniques)
+4 from Chestplate (+1 crafted in and +3 from SEA)
+4 from Weapon (+1 crafted in and +3 from SEA)
+3 from Shirt (+3 from shirt SEA)
+11 from Weapon Powerup*
+11 from Chestplate Powerup*
+11 from Shirt Powerup*
+5 from Cybernetic Deconstruction Arm (seek out the guide to obtain this collection reward item)

Total: +159*
It should be noted that having RE that high really isn't even neccesary. I mostly RE with around +155 to make my +35 Power Bits. I use +159 RE when making powerups for higher charges and better value.

Luck breakdown:

Code: Select all

+  90 Trader CL 90 (more for the races Bothan, Mon Calamari and Twi'lek)
+ 110 Cybernetic Deconstruction Arm
+ 125 Regular Jewelry (5 items with +25 each)
+ 385 from Wearables (armor, clothing, and weapon i.e. Reverse Engineering Suit)
+  40 Charmed Artifact
+  ~150 Denelian Fizz Pudding
+ 200 Shard Of Retaliation
+ 150 Entertainer buff
= 1250
When it comes to luck these are the items that are pretty easy to come across. I have three toons for RE and they all have this as a minimum. However, if you take out the 240 from Shard of Retaliation and the Charmed Artifact you still have over 1k luck which is more than enough to grind out +35s. I mostly have as much luck as I can so that I can make higher quality powerups. There is easily another 400 luck I could stack onto this (I have a Smuggler with a GCW banner, Chu-Gon Dar stims, Meatlump rewards, spice, and more). For more on luck stacking I suggest seeing "APPENDIX B: Luck sources" in the link Zimoon has posted.
