That's because there are no BoE schematics currently in game that could possibly be put up for sale on the GTN. The only schematics other than those trainable currently available are the 3 magenta crystal patterns (which are BoP). This is slated to change with patch 1.2.

Please don't necro threads. If it is over a few weeks old just make a new one.

In an upcoming patch, 1.2 I believe, the patch notes for crafting are currently running into 4 pages, and the devs have stated that big things are coming for Artifice. With all the new crystals coming alone, people that dropped Artifice are going to regret it. Hang onto your skill for now, wait for 1.2

I'm just hoping they balance it out and improve the schematics by the time I reach 50 and max out the craft.
On my server there is no market for any kind of market. I could sell my items for any price I wanted and nobody is selling to say differently. However, I don't do this I sell the items low level mats and high for a set amount. I work out the price of the mission and then add a percentage for time taken. I have sold almost every posting within the first day or two. I usually put up things that I myself have needed or wanted at 1 time and couldn't find or I thought was too expensive. Things like 2x Laminoid for 899 which is way over priced! Or level 10-16, 23-37 purple items (Armour and Mods).

If you really think that artifce (or whatever crafting skill) is a waste, then drop the gathering skill and take up slicing.

That will let you harvest data nodes and send companions out on lockbox and augment component missions.
You can sell the augment components for profit in addition to whatever else you find in the way of missions or schematics or whatever as well as make some credits directly from the cases you will get.

If they later buff artifice (or whatever skill) to the level that you think that it should be at, you can easily power-level the gathering skill back up to an appropriate level for your crafting skill.
Free stuff (for you and me)! My referral link.

It was reverse engineered from the new Campaign Gear. It's also possible to get Advanced 24's as random schematic drops from Operations.

And that hilt is 60% str, 30% end, 10% lost stats.

Most people don't care about 5 more str at the cost of 5 endurance, the general size is sufficent for 99% of the populace.
just read through u every try reing ur crystals and such first coz thts wht im doing i strted from scratch i gotta lvl 24 warrior alt and i deleted a lvl 45 for him just so i cud strt again and re all my stuff as i lvl i find this easyer all my lower lvl stuff grade 1 and grade 2 are all purples noone will buy standard greens att all i wont even concider buying them i always look for min blue on my 50 inquisitor and the prices people do charge for purple crystals are stupid anyhow why pay 200k for a damn crystal with same stats on when i can goto a vendor and buy same one for same price so needs to be about 150 to even buy purples aswell

in my opinion when they bring out events they should only bring out a lightsaber crystal schematic only not crystals this way it will make artifice more competitive and make people wanna buy crystals from artifices dwnside is u will get some who will ask for stupid arse money for the crystals but this is only way i can see to help us out
