Slicing or not ?

Hi! I have just started my Crew Skills and for now it does not seem to get much money out of it. Then I start reading on and on about slicing giving you a lot of money. Is this true. I am a SW with skills: Treasure Hunting, Archaeology and Artifice.

Should I change Archaeology with Slicing ?

How will this turn out in the long term. Will crystals be more attractive or will BW do something about slicing ? What do you think.

Please help. Thanks!

What most people who know what's up are doing is picking up slicing to level with because it provides more than enough money for all skills, mounts, and backpack expansions with the plan to drop slicing for a 'real' skill when they hit 50/don't need money. Of the three skills you listed drop treasure hunting since archaeology and artifice go together. The key to making money with slicing missions is to not do the augment missions and instead do the credit case missions since the reward (if you don't fail the quest) will always at least pay for the cost of the mission.
