Anyways, as I was saying, the last boss of each hardmode flashpoint drops a token for a Columi piece. This token is specific for your class (i.e. Sith Warrior/Jedi knight) but it is not specific for your advanced class so you can choose at the vendor which set (i.e. heal, dps or tanking) to buy. There is a 1/4 chance for the token dropped to be your class.
Black Talon: Columi bracers
Boarding Party: Columi Gloves
False Emperor: Columi Chest
Battle of Ilum: Columi Offhand
Directive 7: Columi Leggings
The Foundry: Columi boots
Some of the dungeons also have drop Tionese quality gear (not token) so it can be harder to get the exact piece for your specific advanced class. The ones I know off the top of my head are
Tionese belt: Black Talon off the Light side/Dark side 1st boss
I have to say I'm a bit disappointed personally that you can just go out and get purple level 22 from dailies... whats the point of crafting if its so easy to get everything you need in the matter of a week.
It would probably take a crafter more effort to re-engineer the 22 patterns to get purple recipes...
