you guys are missing the point here. I'll restate it again for emphasis.
artifice can craft, among other things:
custom built/elegant modified lightsabers
assuming you don't have an augmented custom build/elegant modified lightsaber, these make up 3/4 of the slots on the LS, allowing new f2ps to craft nearly ready-to-use lightsabers with just one crafting skill.
My question: Does Bioware need to give, for example, the ability to craft enhancements to another crew skill? Biochem, perhaps? That's what this thread is for, not to ***** about prices of purple armorings or nothing like that.
vs. the synthweaver that crafts custom armor for what...8 of your slots...and puts augment slots and artifact enhancements?
it evens out in the end imo.
