You may be able to sell them but I was under the belief that you need to have Bio as a prof to equip them, the reuseables I mean. The blue one shot use can be sold and equipped by anybody.

Is this correct ?

Yes.

I will also say that getting the purple items for the reusable items is a pretty big pain the *** so I won't expect to see anyone mass producing purple items to sell. It is pretty easy to make the blue items though.

Well considering Diplomacy is bugged where you sometimes get points with weird decimal values awarded to BOTH light and dark side when a mission fails, a lot of people are not doing biochem cause the skill to get the rare mats jacks up your counter and awards points to a alignment you dont want points awarded too.

I have had my light/dark points jacked up for 5 days and no dev/csr seems to want to weigh in on it other than the cursetory droid response to close a ticket, which I immediately reopen.

I have never made a light side choice or taken a light side diplomacy mission, yet my counter reads something like: 9.023434e456 Light / 4020.345273564e56 Dark
This was the result of a failed darkside mission named "Spin"
Wait under this burning bridge while I determine what your opinion means to me...

I was rather disappointed with the reusable medpac's. While it it nice to have one as a back up in case you run out of blue med pack, i still find the blue medpac's much better as they heal more and have a HOT.

That's what the item says. Even the level 8 reusable says Requires Biochem (1). So the only people who will have reusables are the people who can make their own. Some may not bother, though, as REing a bunch of blue medpaks to get what is basically a single use recipe won't float everyone's boat. So you might be able to sell a couple purple paks.

Purple implants are not BoP, though.

What happens if you critically craft a purple re-useable? And can you make a purple re-useable with a HOT on it by re-enging a purple one?

Having not done it, I can't be dead certain, but it appeared that each crit success while crafting in biotech produced 2x the quantity.

I've got almost 300 biochem and I gotta say it's great. Granted, I didn't sell a single item on AH but I never intended to before max level. Right now I just craft stuff to up my skill and RE it to get purple recipes. They are awesome, and give nice boost. Once at max level I'll make a few purples for me with stats that I need and will just focus on crafting blue ones for raiders. That's where the real money is at.

i come from wow having leveled most professions , mostly on main ench and tailoring ...

usually crafting prof get outdated when you hit max lvl with pvp pve gear .... So not much use apart tailoring unique enchants mounts or nice looking items ....
ench is always usefull .

But , but alchemy ,,,, or byo it always went strong cos the potions end , you always need more pots more stims to have the edge so good or bad its usefull always . So im going byo , a bit boring i must admit but it will sure be worth it

and diplomacy isnt bad either
OPOD , one of few who saw it and lived to tell the storry .
