Or you could of gone to the GTN, looked up the stim, hit the RE button on you inventory and mouse over the item from the GTN listing. It'll show your RE chances with out having to buy or make the item in the first place.
But answer is no you can't RE Exotech and the Devs stated a while back that all future levels of comsumables will not have a reusable counterpart. rakata will be the last reusables you can ever get unless the Devs change their minds.
Where did they say this and what was their reasoning for this? If this is true, I can say once again....I'm not a happy customer, especially since there is going to be a level increase soon. That's going to make (Actually, Exotech has already done this) my Reusables obsolete. What a bunch of Horse ****!!
Also, correct me if I am wrong, but you can never RE something that somebody else crafted. So how was your suggestion going to help me?
