This is VERY good news, as this character ( my BH) is a Cybertech and can make mods and armours at rank 8 now, so with a bit more work, I should be able to fire these things out AND make them for my other toons!
One question further though: Do the stats provided by the mods show in the tooltip when comparing vs new drops?
Thankyou for all the help guys (and thanks to the original poster for making this thread! )
Yes, the stats show, as total stats for the piece. If you want to compare a new mod to the current mod, you'll have to open your character sheet and look at the item.
