Lol it is ME who posts walls of texts? And sorry, yes, MMORPG is all about elitism from a certain point of view - top gear, top guilds, top achievements, no?
The main thing for you to understand is that yes, money can be made from 61 mods/enhancements, but it is not nearly as accessible as augments...
Sorry I have to confess. I learned http://www.torhead.com/schematic/gLI...enhancement-26
because I was so bored I had nothing better to do. And I didn't know I could make money with it, wow, after selling about 40 of them for 1kk each.
Of course it's not nearly as accessible, but it's finally made artificers and cybertechs worth their while. And I could go on and on about practical aspects of it, but I don't post walls of text usually.
