Tanking Mods come with Higher cycbertech I don't remember the exact number but I believe the level range was 30+ so maybe 250 ish in skill....if that helps any
I am on anchorhead if you need a hand and on Imperial side send me a message
I have 400 Cybertech right now and there are no new magic recipes. Quest mods are far superior to anything I can make. Honestly, this profession is broken if you are any type of tank with the hopes of customizing your own orange armor.
