Reuseable potions are fantastic - reusable adrenals/stims are a horrible idea

ITT: still-enraged slicers looking to share the misery of not being able to exploit.

Ever look at the components those purples require in order to craft? It's basically raid gear people. Of course you're going to pick the very end of the line best stat gear to hold up as being OP.

And if you really boil it down, the cost and time required to level to 400, AND get the mats, AND buy the recipe (35k, somewhere near there?) you could set yourself up with consumable stims from 1-50. They are dirt cheap. I know, I sell them for dirt cheap.

Actually, I was able to craft all three Rakatas after 3 days of hard mode BT and FE.

My suggestion is to remove the Biochem requirement on non-Rakata reusables. Might gut the stim/adrenal market, but Biochem can always still sell implants.

Ok... Here's the thing. I'm a biochem, but I didn't go that for myself. I went for my guild.

Now, it's annoying to not be able to pass out reusable stims, but the funny thing I noticed is that the blue ones are actually BETTER than the reusable ones. This is where is evens out. As a biochem, I will never use a blue stim, because I am addicted to constantly having myself stimmed up. But my guildmates will have a larger boost when we do raids/ PvP/ endgame PvE than me becasue I will make them blue stims/ lvl 400 purples (which are better) because that's my job. They supply me some operating money, I spend all my time getting excess supplies to have stims that are better than what I use. They will be better off than me.

As long as you have a dedicated crafter in the guild (or a few) who you supply with money from time to time, you will be better off than any Biochem user under most circumstances.

I didnt say it was a bug or a glitch dude read, it gives 585 to any stat you decide to make. do you not understand how much of a buff that is? Clearly you dont because you dont.

And its permanent, this is a balance thing, not a bug or a glitch report.
You can make the items and drop Biochem. I did and still use my stim, adrenal and medpac

That would be a bug because the requirement clearly state that it require a biochem level to be able to be used. So don#t count too much on it.

The Rakata versions have no requirements listed, only the basic epic versions.
