I don't know about anyone else, but I made a boatload of credits selling low-level (17 through 39) item modifications (armorings, mods, and enhancements). Everything was selling within 2-4 hours, and for $2k-$5k more than normal. I was spending so much time sending companions on gathering and crafting missions, that I didn't actually get to level my Vanguard as much as I would have liked.

Needless to say, I'm stocking up and getting my premades done before this Friday starts.

The only things that I saw that were getting severely undercut were purple lvl 49 augments. But that just seemed to open up the lvl 47 augment market, where I was selling those for more than what the lvl 49 ones were going.

Wow, and people wonder why crafting is dying.....always someone trying to rip other players off, maybe you should start selling the mods you make for what they are truely worth instead of being a greedy profiteer.

This is all well and good, however these items have no actual "worth". Only the buyer can assign "worth", or value, to these items. The buyer can either decide to buy the item, give it "worth", or decide not to buy it at which point the item is worthless.

If the buyer had no other means of obtaining the item, then we would have problem, however the game mechanics offer other ways to obtain these items.

I've seen you post this comment is too many threads, without any further debate, that I can only assume you are trolling.

Either back up your argument or stop posting.

Crafting isn't dying from where I'm standing. But I would love to see your list of what you think would be a fair price for some low level item modifications.

I challenge you to respond to any of the attempts I've made to comment on, refute, debate or present an opposing viewpoint to this idea you keep insisting is true.

Are you capable of discussing your viewpoint on this matter? Or do you just throw it out there and run away?

Items are 'worth' whatever the buyer says they're worth.

Greedy profiteers unite!
