5. Crafting still useless at endgame, other than for a few stims and a handful of BOP Rakata pieces. Some skills like Armstech are barely useful even for lower level gear.
I was under the impression armstechs who happen to be raiders can make end-game barrles if they re 'em?
Armorers (of all types) are the ones who totally get the shaft. Rakata is pointless.
