Crewskills and Maximizing profits in preparation for 1.2



Share

Basics of crew skills
When choosing the crew skills there are a couple points you may want to consider. First - are you going to be able to make things for yourself with these crewskills? Are you not worried about improving your own gear and just want to maximize the amount of income that you are making?
Self-improvement or Increased wealth. Once you answer that question there are the bonuses that your companions grant listed here:

For your crafting crewskill you want to choose the profession for your class that has a crit companion. This increases the chance that you get augments in items in the professions where you craft gear and the number of items crafted for biochem.

Coming in 1.2: armormech and synthweaving will be able to crit augments in orange gear. You are currently not able to at this moment but will be once this patch is released.

$$ - If you are a armormech or synthweaving crafter collect all the patterns for orange gear with 3 slots and create a stockpile of all the mats used in crafting these pieces. These will sell for a LOT OF CREDITS. When patch 1.2 is released use your crit companion (if you have one) to create a huge number of these slotted gear pieces. Sell the orange pieces with an augment slot on patch release day for at least 1 million credits. People will want these because they will be the new best in slot items with an augment. Quick way to make several million credits. You have a 5% chance to crit an augment and an additional 1% for each crit bonus point on a companion. So have mats for as many as you can manage to scrape together before the next patch.


Patterns – Buy these and buy them fast. Any custom pattern that has 3 slots in it for either synthweaving or armormech. These patterns will be in high demand once the patch hits and people are looking to craft specific looking gear with augment slots.

Armormech Mats – The best position you can be in when the patch is release is having all the materials that you need to pump out hundreds of items. Reverse engineer the pieces that did not crit (if the vendor price is lower than the price of one of the material pieces) and continue crafting till you crit. I anticipate these selling for a healthy sum (1 million a piece on high pop servers).


The mats you want to stock up on if you are just looking to flip them for a tidy profit are:

Polyplast set – 4 Ciridium, 8 Durasteel, 12 Polyplast
Polyplast Battle gear – 4 Quadranium, 8 Neutronium, 12 Polyplast
Electrum Onslaught – 4 Ciridium, 8 Zal Alloy, 12 Electrum
Diatium Onslaught - 4 Quadranium, 8 Amorphous Carbonite, 12 Diatium
Commando Elite - 4 Quadranium, 12 Electrum, 8 Polyplast
Mercenary Elite - 4 Quadranium, 12 Electrum, 8 Polyplast
Gunslinger Elite - 4 Quadranium, 8 Electrum, 12 Polyplast
Sniper Elitie - 4 Quadranium, 8 Electrum, 12 Polyplast
Lacqerous Mesh - 4 Titanium, 6 Diatium, 10 Lacqerous
Fortified Lacqerous - 4 Titanium, 10 Diatium, 6 Lacqerous
Phobium Onslaught – 4 Titanium, 10 Phobium, 6 Fibermesh
Lacqerous Battle - 4 Titanium, 6 Bondite, 10 Lacqerous
Plasteel Batt – 4 Xonolite, 5 Bondite, 10 Plasteel
Chanlon Onslaught - 4 Xonolite, 10 Chanlon, 6 Fibermesh
Vagabond - 4 Xonolite, 10 Phobium, 6 Lacqerous

Tempered Laminoid – 4 Mullinine, 6 Chanlon, 10 Laminoid
