Ummmm.... Any planar gear out there for level 50s? All i can see is a whole mess of gear for people up to level 45, but cant find anything for level 50.

I haven't looked too closely, but as far as I know, level 50 planar stuff is mostly about things like essences, crafting augments, etc. Not a whole lot by way of gear. Gear mostly comes from plaques, dungeons, and notoriety with various factions. And crafting. Stuff like that.

Gotta admit im pretty surprised in a game called "Rift" you cant gear up doing rifts then. Maybe they'll add some stuff soon.

Don't take my word for it that there's none...I don't want to steer you down that path when I'm not positive. There might be some upgrades from the planar faction vendors in your home cities (same folks you get the husks from for expert/raid rifts) which wouldn't be quite the same as spending planarite but would still be awarding you for participating in rift related content. I do know that even if there are few (no) direct gear upgrades to be had, people still rely on planar faction notoriety for a lot of augments and essences, and planar currency is also still sought after for various different augments/essences you can find here and there.

The essences are mainly the level 50 things. And you can gear up from rifts. There are Expert and Raid rifts that drop loot like raids. Just not much that can be bought but that isn't different from most other games where you can't buy the best gear out there.

Thats understood, but if you look at all the gear available while leveling up, its disappointing that there arent even level 50 blues to buy.
Just one of the higher zone vendors for example.

This is true...you can get gear from expert and raid rifts. In order to do those rifts, you have to farm the souls from the 5-man content, so no matter what you do you're going to be routed through non-rift related content.

There's still plenty to buy with planar currency at 50, it's just more focused on augments and essences and less on the gear itself.
